Puk looking sharp in return from Tommy John surgery

MESA, Ariz. (AP) A.J. Puk is looking and feeling strong after pitching three innings in his first two spring training starts for the Oakland Athletics.

Two years removed from Tommy John surgery, Puk threw into the mid-90-mph range during a two-inning, 23-pitch scoreless outing against Colorado in a 5-2 win Thursday. The lanky left-handed allowed two hits and struck out leadoff man David Dahl on three fastballs.

"It's still all about just getting out there and just get the cobwebs off," said Puk, who pitched a scoreless inning against the Chicago Cubs last weekend.
