Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted the team has some concerns about Yasiel Puig's conditioning this spring. Mattingly said Puig showed up at camp and weighed in at 251 pounds, 26 more than he weighed at the end of the regular season. Puig, who is a muscular 6-foot-3, was 235 pounds at the beginning of last spring. The Dodgers are hoping Puig can lose some weight before the start of the season on March 22 in Australia. "We don't feel it's going to be a problem, but we're paying attention to it, put it that way," Mattingly told ESPNLosAngeles.com. Puig, 23, has been bothered by some shoulder soreness and has missed the last two days of baseball activities after fouling a ball off his right leg in batting practice. The National League Rookie of the Year runner-up batted .319 with 19 home runs and 42 RBIs after his early June call-up.
