"He's fine," manager Bob Melvin said. "It'll probably be two days, which is fine. He was off today, anyway, and tomorrow will be a limited day for everyone -- probably one at-bat -- so if he's going to miss a couple days, those are two good days to miss."
Melvin expects Punto to be able to play in the three-game Bay Bridge Series, spanning Thursday to Saturday in advance of Opening Day. Once the season begins, the plan is for Punto to form a platoon with Eric Sogard at second base and also to back up Jed Lowrie at shortstop.
