Cedeno out of series opener with calf strain
NEW YORK -- Ronny Cedeno's calf injury, which was originally reported as a cramp, was diagnosed as a small strain on Monday. Cedeno suffered the injury while fouling off a pitch in the eighth inning of Saturday's 9-0 win against the Padres.

"What he did, he made his stride and then rotated on it," manager Terry Collins said. "He felt it was a cramp also, because he felt it grab. He went out to first base and it just tightened up on him, and he had to come out."

Collins said Cedeno could have played on Monday, but he decided to be careful. Justin Turner started at shortstop against the Phillies.

"It's just still bothering him a little bit," Collins said. "It's a small little strain. It's more than a cramp. He's better today."
