ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) felt sore after his last rehab start and is "backing off his planned assignments."
It's unclear how big of a setback it could be, but obviously it's not a good development. Ryu tossed four scoreless innings in his last rehab outing and had been scheduled to start on Monday. The Dodgers could have more on the left-hander's status later Sunday. May 29 - 3:54 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) threw four scoreless innings Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It was the third rehab start for Ryu, who remains on track for a mid-June season debut. The left-hander struck out three, walked none, and scattered four hits over his four shutout frames. He induced a ton of groundballs, which is usually a positive sign that his stuff is working. Ryu and his 3.17 career major league ERA are worth stashing in all mixed fantasy leagues.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) will make his next rehab start Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It's a step up for Ryu, who has made his last two starts for High-A Rancho Cucamonga. The left-hander will need a few more outings to build up his pitch count before he joins the Dodgers. Ryu is still on track for a mid-June return.
May 21 - 9:51 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) allowed one hit with two strikeouts over two scoreless innings Sunday in his first rehab start for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

19 of his 22 pitches went for strikes. Ryu's fastball sat in the 85-87 mph range but he was only throwing at about 60-70 percent effort. Ryu threw 10 more pitches in the bullpen after coming out. He'll make at least four more rehab appearances with his next start coming Friday for Rancho Cucamonga.
May 16 - 9:16 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) will begin a rehab assignment for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday.

He's expected to throw two innings. The plan is for Ryu to build up his arm strength over 4-5 rehab starts before joining the Dodgers' rotation in early to mid-June. Ryu missed all of last season while recovering from shoulder surgery and is also coming back from a groin injury.
May 14 - 7:49 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) is expected to face hitters next week.

Ryu is recovering from multiple injuries. Most notably, he is on the mend from offseason shoulder surgery. He suffered a strain groin in April just to up the difficulty factor. If all goes according to plan, Ryu could take a rehab assignment next weekend.
May 11 - 8:28 PM

Dodgers transferred LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim Casey Fien. Ryu could begin a rehab assignment later this month.
May 8 - 8:56 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder, groin) could be 10-14 days away from beginning a rehab assignment.

Ryu is working his way back from shoulder surgery and had a setback last month when he strained his groin. He's been throwing for a couple weeks now, though, and isn't far from being ready for games. If all goes well, he could rejoin the Dodgers in mid-June.
May 6 - 5:32 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin, shoulder) threw a 40-45 pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

He was joined by Brandon McCarthy (elbow), who threw 50-60 pitches over three sessions. Ryu mixed in all of his pitches over two sessions. The plan is for him to throw one more bullpen session before advancing to facing live hitters. There's no timetable for Ryu's return.
Apr 30 - 10:16 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin, shoulder) threw a successful 30-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

Ryu had to take some time off from his shoulder rehab when he suffered a groin strain in mid-April, but he's back at it now. The left-hander has no official recovery timetable, but if he's able to avoid further setbacks he could conceivably become an option for the Dodgers' rotation in late May. Brandon McCarthy (elbow) also threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.
Apr 26 - 7:16 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin, shoulder) will throw 20-25 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday.

Ryu, who is making his way back from shoulder surgery, was scratched from a bullpen session earlier this month due to a strained groin. He's feeling better now, but he's still a ways off from pitching for the Dodgers.
Apr 25 - 7:11 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu was scratched from his scheduled bullpen session on Saturday because of a strained groin.

Ryu just can't seem to catch a break. He was expected to be ready for spring training but that timetable had to be pushed back to May. Now it's anyone's guess when he'll be back in the Dodgers' rotation. Ryu is 11 months removed from shoulder surgery. He hasn't thrown a pitch in the major leagues since October of 2014.
Apr 16 - 6:36 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will throw two simulated innings Thursday in Arizona.

It was going to be live batting practice, but Ryu will go ahead and treat it like a real appearance. The left-hander is working his way back from shoulder surgery and aiming to join the Dodgers' rotation in mid-May. He boasts a 3.17 ERA and 293 strikeouts in 344 major league innings, but there are obviously question marks.
Apr 5 - 8:15 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is on track to throw live batting practice on Thursday or Friday.

It will be his first time facing hitters since his shoulder surgery last May. The southpaw had to slow things down after a setback during spring training, but the hope is that he could be ready to join the Dodgers' rotation by the end of May.
Apr 4 - 5:38 PM

Dodgers placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury.

Ryu had a setback with his surgically-repaired shoulder early on in camp. He's throwing off a mound again, though, and could be back at some point in May.
