07:35 AM ET 02.14 | After his off-the-field headlines this offseason, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig now finds himself with a concern that may affect him on the diamond. [Puig] is already on a limited throwing program after a flareup of inflammation in his right shoulder that bothered him sporadically last year. Manager Don Mattingly said Puig apparently overthrew his first day in camp and the club believes it is the same problem that he played through last year. Position players have been working out voluntarily this week leading up to Friday's first full-squad workout. After taking batting practice, Puig played catch Thursday under the watch of trainer Stan Conte. "We don't think it's serious, but we need to find out," Mattingly said, calling Puig's reduced throwing "precautionary."
