Stanton left after five innings of Friday's opener. Manager Edwin Rodriguez says Stanton experienced some discomfort before Friday's game. Emilio Bonifacio was in the lineup taking Stanton's spot in the field Saturday.
Stanton missed much of spring training with a right quadriceps injury, and says this issue does not compare with the level of discomfort he experienced last month.
Stanton was 1 for 2 with a run scored in Florida's 6-2 win Friday.
