8:50 pm: Turner told reporters that his leg cramped up in the top of the second inning. He stayed in the game, but later left the to get treatment on his calf muscle.

“You know, I think it was a little tight from maybe compensating a little bit for my ankle,” Turner explained, according to ESPN New York. “It’s not really sore to walk around or stretch or anything. It’s more sore to touch.”

Turner missed time earlier in camp due to a ankle injury.

“Hopefully I’ll just get in and get all the treatment I need and take whatever pills they have and get this thing calmed down in a day or two,” he said.
