Cedeno remains out of lineup Sunday

NEW YORK -- Manager Terry Collins downplayed a right leg cramp that forced Ronny Cedeno from Saturday's game against the Padres, but it kept the shortstop out of the lineup again Sunday for the series finale at Citi Field.

Cedeno worked an eighth-inning walk in a 9-0 win Saturday, then left the game with the cramp as soon as he reached first base.

Collins said Cedeno still felt soreness a day later, but the decision to keep him out of the lineup was more precautionary. Justin Turner started in Cedeno's stead.
