LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Lucas Duda, who started Monday's game against the Atlanta Braves at first base, departed with leg stiffness, Terry Collins said.

Collins indicated the rash of minor maladies is likely because of sun-baked fields and the effort being exerted by the players in camp.

The manager expected Ike Davis (calves), Ruben Tejada (hamstring) and Eric Young Jr. (side muscle) all to enter the lineup Tuesday, however.
