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.
