• Spring Training information
"He said it started tightening a little more, so we took him out," Ausmus said. "We'd rather he didn't have it, but if it was serious he wouldn't have even started the game."
Ausmus said that it doesn't appear to be a serious setback for Castellanos, who will likely sit out Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays in Lakeland.
Castellanos went hitless in two at-bats against the Mets, lowering his batting average this spring to .167, and he also made a throwing error in the third inning when the Mets scored three runs.
Ausmus said that Anibal Sanchez is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Tuesday. Sanchez, who has been battling right triceps inflammation, threw a 25-pitch bullpen session last Saturday.
