New York Yankees designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton left Tuesday's game against the Baltimore Orioles with right calf tightness, the team announced, according to MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.

He'll undergo an MRI on Wednesday morning, according to the New York Post's Joel Sherman.

Estevan Florial replaced Stanton at DH after the latter struck out in the fourth inning.

The slugger was seen shaking out his right leg at the end of the at-bat.

Stanton has had calf issues in the past, including a Grade 1 calf strain in his right leg that caused him to miss Opening Day in 2020.

The 32-year-old's only played more than 100 games twice since joining the Yankees in 2018 due to injuries.

Stanton entered Tuesday's game hitting .289/.343/.530 with 11 home runs and 35 RBIs.
