yasiel puigLos Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig has been cut down in his throwing program after experiencing soreness in his right shoulder during spring training workouts with the team. Friday was the Dodgers' first official full-team workout. Puig had been with the team all week working out with them, according to ESPN.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly commented on the latest news of Puig.

"With Yasiel, it usually goes full speed and we'd like to try to build it up instead of seeing if he can throw it from the wall to the plate the first day. Maybe the second," he joked. "Just trying to hold it up and build it up like everybody else."

Mattingly mentioned how Puig puts extra stress on his arm to make big throws that have small chances of succeeding during games last season, but he won't try to urge the young star in playing conservative.

"We'll talk with everyone over the course of the spring about the fundamentals of playing and what we want to do with the baseball and the reasons why."
