DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus was scratched from Sunday's lineup against the New York Yankees because of a stiff neck.

Rasmus was set to bat seventh, but opted to sit as a precaution. He does not expect it to be a long-term issue and hopes to return in a "couple days."

"I feel all right, I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning," Rasmus said. "I got a little crick in my neck and it's just one of those things that after throwing and warming up, I just felt like I needed to take myself out."

Rasmus hit .276 with 22 home runs and 66 RBIs last season.

Anthony Gose took Rasmus' place in center field in the exhibition game.
