GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig fouled a ball off his right thigh on Wednesday, and it was swollen enough on Thursday that he was told not to practice, manager Don Mattingly said.

"There was a little swelling and we don't see the need to have him limp around out there," said Mattingly. "We feel he'll be back tomorrow."

Puig took therapy while his teammates worked out.

In other injury news, Minor League pitcher Zach Lee returned to the mound for a short bullpen session for the first time in 10 days after suffering a mild lat strain.
