PHOENIX – Yasiel Puig will be held out of the Dodgers’ workout Thursday with a bruised thigh.

Puig batted a ball off his leg the previous day, according to Manager Don Mattingly.

“I don’t think we need to see him out there limping around,” Mattingly said.

Puig is expected to resume working out Friday.


Earlier in camp, Puig experienced some discomfort in his throwing shoulder.

In other injury news, Mattingly said left-hander Paul Maholm was experiencing tenderness in the area around his elbow and forearm.
