Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) had Tuesday's rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City shortened due to rain.
Ryu allowed one run on two hits and no walks in 1 2/3 innings while striking out two batters. He threw 20 out of 26 pitches for strikes. Obviously the Dodgers would have liked to see him get stretched out a bit more, so at least one more rehab outing is likely in his future. Jun 28 - 2:54 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that it's possible Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will make a start in the majors before the All-Star break.

Ryu was touched for eight runs (five earned) on 10 hits over four innings Thursday in a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City, but Roberts said he felt good coming out of the start and got his velocity up to 90 mph. The Dodgers still think he has work to do, but he's getting closer.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will make his next minor league rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The plan calls for Ryu to throw five innings or 65 pitches. The southpaw has allowed one run with eight strikeouts and one walk in seven innings over two starts since resuming his minor league rehab assignment, but the Dodgers want to see more velocity before activating him. He was reportedly throwing in the 82-89 mph range during his most recent rehab outing.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that he'd like to see more velocity from Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) before the lefty is activated from the disabled list.

Roberts said that Ryu's velocity sat at 86 mph and ranged from 82-89 mph in his last rehab appearance on Friday. "You want to get the average up a little bit higher," Roberts said. "I know that it is rehab, but I expect the velocity to go up." Ryu averaged 92 mph in 2014 in his last big league season, so the velocity drop is a big one but not surprising given that the southpaw is coming back from major shoulder surgery. Roberts would like to see Ryu throwing at least 88 mph before he considers him for the big league rotation.
Jun 19 - 10:21 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is expected to throw four innings in Friday's rehab start for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

He'll be limited to 60 pitches. Ryu resumed his rehab assignment Sunday following a two-week layoff. The left-hander will need about three or four more outings in the minors before he's ready to join the Dodgers' starting rotation.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will make his next minor league rehab start on Thursday.

Ryu finally resumed his minor league rehab assignment on Sunday at High-A Rancho Cucamonga and allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits over three innings. His return from shoulder surgery hasn't gone according to plan so far, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that he "felt as good as he's felt in any rehab start." He's likely another three or four starts away from rejoining the Dodgers.
Jun 13 - 9:54 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits over three innings in a minor league rehab start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday.

The southpaw didn't walk a batter and struck out three. He's still going to need another 3-4 rehab starts before he's deemed ready to rejoin the Dodgers, and that's if he's able to avoid any further setbacks.
Jun 12 - 7:18 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will resume his rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Ryu was shut down for about two weeks after feeling renewed soreness in his surgically repaired shoulder. He's expected to pitch two innings Saturday and will need 4-5 rehab starts before joining the Dodgers' rotation. The left-hander hasn't appeared in the major leagues since October of 2014.
Jun 11 - 4:26 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) hasn't resumed throwing to hitters.

Ryu has been idle since feeling some soreness after his most recent minor league rehab appearance. His status remains up in the air.
Jun 6 - 7:12 PM

The Dodgers still haven't determined when Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will resume his rehab assignment.

Ryu is a week removed from being shut down after feeling soreness a day after his last rehab appearance. It doesn't appear at this point to be a long-term setback, but obviously he's not going to be pitching for the big club anytime soon.
Jun 3 - 10:00 AM

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.
May 25 - 3:08 PM

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.
