Hyun-Jin Ryu issued five hits and one run over five strong innings Thursday in the Dodgers’ Cactus League win over the Angels.
He walked one and struck out six. The Angels’ only damage off Ryu came in the fourth when he allowed a solo shot to Luis Valbuena. Ryu should get props for fanning Mike Trout, who struck out for the first time this spring in the first inning. Thursday’s outing sliced Ryu’s Cactus League ERA from 14.29 to 8.44. Mar 23 - 12:50 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu struggled in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the White Sox, surrendering five runs on seven hits over three innings.

The White Sox pounced on Ryu for three runs in the first inning and two more in the second inning. The veteran left-hander projects to open the 2018 season as the fifth starter in the Dodgers rotation. Last year was his first throwing more than 100 innings since 2014. He's been plagued by injury for much of his career.

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs in 2 2/3 innings on Sunday against the Rockies in the Cactus League.

Ryu yielded two hits, walked two, and struck out two. One of those hits was a two-run homer by Chris Iannetta. That's a lot of twos. The left-hander will turn 31 years old in two weeks, and should begin the year with a spot in the Dodgers' rotation. When healthy he shows spurts of being a quality fantasy option, but it's hard to trust a guy on draft day who has not thrown more than 150 innings since 2014.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (illness) is scheduled to start in a B game for the Dodgers on Monday.

Ryu was scratched from his scheduled start on Wednesday due to a cold, but he appears to be feeling better now. As long as he doesn't fall flat on his face during the spring, Ryu is expected to break camp as the fifth starter in the Dodgers' Opening Day rotation.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League start on Wednesday due to a cold.

There's apparently a nasty virus going around Dodgers camp. Ryu should be fine to make his first spring start in a couple of days. He is projected as the Dodgers' No. 5 starter leading into the 2018 regular season.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated Tuesday that Hyun-Jin Ryu might be left off the NLDS roster.

Los Angeles will start Clayton Kershaw in Game 1, Rich Hill in Game 2, and Yu Darvish in Game 3, with Alex Wood likely handling a potential Game 4. That obviously leaves Ryu without a rotation spot, and it sounds like he's not in strong consideration for a relief role. "I don't know if Ryu is going to be in the 'pen," Roberts said. "He is obviously uncomfortable in that role."

Hyun-Jin Ryu was lifted after allowing five runs in two innings Friday in a loss to the Rockies.

That Ryu has come back and been a well above average starts this year after two lost seasons is a huge accomplishment, but he probably won't play much of a role for the Dodgers in October, at least not unless another starter gets hurt. He finishes the regular season with a 3.77 ERA and a 116/45 K/BB ratio in 126 2/3 innings. Somehow, though, that resulted in just a 5-9 record for the 100-win Dodgers.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (forearm) played catch Monday.

Ryu departed his start Saturday after being hit on the left forearm by a comebacker, but the swelling has gone down and he could be ready to start again this weekend. The left-hander will try to throw a bullpen session mid-week to see if he can take the ball over the weekend. If he's not ready, Brandon McCarthy could get a start.

X-rays turned up negative on Hyun-Jin Ryu's left forearm.

Ryu was removed from his start Saturday night against the Giants after getting struck by a Joe Panik comebacker in the top of the third inning. He only suffered a contusion, but that contusion could keep him from making another start before the end of the regular season.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was removed in the third inning of his start Saturday against the Giants after getting struck on the left arm by a Joe Panik line drive.

The comebacker was clocked at 93.9 mph off Panik's bat. Look for a status update within the next hour or so. Ross Stripling took over on the mound for the Dodgers with one out in the top of the third.

Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched well in no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing three hits and a pair of walks over 4 2/3 shutout innings.

The left-hander struck out five on the night. Unfortunately for Ryu, and elevated pitch count of 98 forced him from the game before he was able to complete the fifth inning. He has pitched fairly well this season, compiling a 3.46 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 114/44 K/BB ratio across 122 1/3 innings. He'll do battle against the Giants his next time out at home on Saturday.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will start Sunday against the Nationals.

Ryu was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation, but now it's Kenta Maeda who will have his schedule altered. Ryu owns a 3.59 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 109/42 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings (21 starts, one relief appearance) this season with Los Angeles.
Tue, Sep 12, 2017 08:36:00 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu will be skipped on his next turn in the Dodgers' rotation.

Kenta Maeda is scheduled to pitch Monday's series opener in San Francisco and Clayton Kershaw will go Tuesday or Wednesday. Ryu looked sharp in his last outing Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, but Los Angeles has six healthy starters at the moment.
Sat, Sep 9, 2017 06:26:00 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed one earned run, three hits and five walks with seven strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

While the walk total was a bit high, Ryu was sharp against a red-hot offense which entered play with 11 consecutive victories. He'll look to carry over the momentum into his next scheduled start on Monday in San Francisco opposite Chris Stratton.
Wed, Sep 6, 2017 04:21:00 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu struggled Wednesday, giving up six runs in four innings against the Diamondbacks.

Adam Rosales, Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Herrmann all homered off him tonight. Ryu had allowed just one homer and a total of six runs in six starts since the All-Star break. He's still worth using in mixed leagues for now, though that could change at any time.
