The prized prospect is dealing with inflammation in the strained shoulder that also bothered him during spring training. He was given both cortisone and platelet rich plasma into the area after being examined Monday by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Puk went on the 10-day injured list Monday.
Analysis: The 25-year-old Puk, the sixth overall pick in the 2016 amateur draft out of Florida, is yet to make a major league start. He went 2-0 with a 3.18 ERA over 10 outings and 11 1/3 innings last August and September.
