SEATTLE -- Left fielder Chris Young departed Monday's 5-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners in the eighth inning after experiencing cramping in his left calf.

"I felt it a few steps out of the box and tried to kind of push through it and it seemed like it went away," said Young, who grounded out to end the top half of the inning. "And a few steps before the bag it seemed like it came back. I feel like it was just a cramp. I never had anything in my calf before, so I'm not sure. But just what I felt when I was running down the line, I just felt like it was a cramp.

"Right now it feels normal. I iced it as soon as I came in. I think I made the right decision coming out of the game, for sure, just to try to catch it before anything went wrong. So hopefully with the ice and some rest tonight I show up tomorrow and it feels normal."
