Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is limited by right shoulder inflammation as the club had its first full-squad workout Friday.

Puig, 23, had a flareup after apparently overthrowing during his first day of camp Thursday. He and other players have been working out voluntarily this week. He was also bothered by shoulder inflammation last year.

Manager Don Mattingly said Puig is on a limited throwing program as a precaution.

"We don't think it's serious, but we need to find out," Mattingly said after Thursday's workout.

Puig finished second in the balloting for National League Rookie of the Year last year after batting .319 with 19 home runs and 42 RBIs in 104 games.
