Hyun-Jin Ryu was torched for seven runs over 2 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss against the Tigers.
Ryu had been on a roll, posting a 3.14 ERA since his return from the disabled list on May 21. Tuesday's outing will ding the ERA a bit. The Tigers banged out 10 hits against Ryu, who also walked two while striking out two. Ryu will try to lower his 3.65 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, and improve his 83/21 K/BB ratio, when he takes on the light-hitting Padres to close out the first half at home in his next start. Jul 8 - 11:13 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu limited the Indians to two runs over seven innings Wednesday but took a no-decision.

Ryu struck out eight Cleveland batters and did not issue a walk in the solid outing, but Brian Wilson coughed up the Dodgers' lead in a brutal eighth inning. Ryu will carry a 9-4 record, 3.08 ERA, and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Tigers.
Jul 2 - 6:51 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu held the Padres to one run on four hits over six innings of work in a win on Sunday.

He walked one and struck out just two on the day, giving him his sixth win in his last seven starts. The left-hander continues to confound National League hitters, as the win moved him to 9-3 with a 3.06 ERA for the year. He'll take on the Cardinals on Friday.

Hyun-Jin Ryu fired six innings of one-run ball, allowing only three hits, in Monday's 5-1 win over the Rockies.

The left-hander struck out six and walked one. His lone blemish proved to be Wilin Rosario's fourth-inning solo homer to left field. The 27-year-old won't succumb to a sophomore slump. He's now 8-3 with a 3.18 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 64/17 K/BB rate over 76 1/3 innings. Ryu has the best matchup in baseball booked for Sunday when he travels to San Diego to face off against the anemic Padres' offense.
Jun 17 - 1:29 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu fell to 7-3, allowing four runs over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

Ryu took his first loss since April 27, but there's no shame in being outdueled by Johnny Cueto. The lefty allowed six hits -- including a solo home run to Jay Bruce -- while walking two and striking out five. Ryu has a respectable 3.33 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 58/16 K/BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings. He'll face the Rockies at home in his next outing.

Hyun-Jin Ryu yielded two runs in six innings in Friday's 7-2 win over the Rockies.

Ryu held the Rockies scoreless until he gave up a solo homer to Drew Stubbs and an RBI triple to Charlie Culberson in his final inning of work. The southpaw fanned two and walked two and has now won four straight starts. He'll carry a 3.08 ERA into a start against the Reds next week in Cincy.

May 31 - 10:28 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning Monday, only to barely hold on for the win after being charged with three runs in 7 1/3 innings.

Ryu reached on an error and came around to score in the bottom of the seventh, which might or might not have had something to do with the shaky eighth. He gave up a double, a single, a sac fly and a single to start the inning and was pulled. Brian Wilson came on and retired just one of the four hitters he faced, allowing two inherited runners to score and forcing the Dodgers to call on Kenley Jansen in a 4-3 game. Fortunately, Jansen took care of business from there, going 1 1/3 innings for the save. Ryu moved to 5-2 with a 3.10 ERA. He's won both of his starts since coming off the DL.
May 27 - 12:10 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu was effective in his return from the disabled list, allowing two runs over six innings to pick up his fourth win as the Dodgers defeated the Mets 4-3 on Wednesday.

Ryu allowed a handful of singles, but worked around trouble for the most part. His only mistake was a sixth-inning, two-run home run to Eric Campbell. Overall, Ryu allowed nine hits, walked one, and struck out a season-high nine. The lefty owns a 3.00 ERA with a 40/12 K/BB ratio in 45 innings. Ryu will attempt to pick up his fifth win in his next start against the Reds at home.
May 21 - 10:32 PM

Dodgers activated LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 15-day disabled list.

Ryu will return to the Dodgers' starting rotation on Wednesday night against the Mets after missing three weeks because of left shoulder inflammation. The 27-year-old southpaw owns a 3.00 ERA, 1.208 WHIP, and 185 strikeouts through his first 231 major league innings. He can be added back to fantasy lineups immediately.
May 21 - 5:26 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will rejoin the Dodgers' rotation on Wednesday against the Mets.

He was cleared after getting through an extended spring training game over the weekend with no issues. Ryu threw 75 pitches in the extended spring outing, so he shouldn't be limited too much from a pitch count perspective even though he didn't go out on a rehab assignment. Paul Maholm will move to the bullpen.
May 18 - 2:19 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu threw 75 pitches in an extended spring training game on Friday without any issues.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said afterwards that he's confident Ryu will return to the Dodgers rotation soon, though he wasn't ready to talk about a return on Wednesday. Either way, it appears as though his return is growing near.
May 16 - 7:43 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) threw all of his pitches during a 45-pitch bullpen session Tuesday.

It's the first time the left-hander has thrown off a mound since being placed on the DL in late April with left shoulder inflammation. The Dodgers have said it's possible Ryu won't need to go out on a rehab assignment, so he's moving closer to a return to the rotation.
May 13 - 7:03 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Ryu played catch on flat ground again Sunday and has now been cleared to climb atop the bump. It's possible that the left-hander won't need to go out on a rehab assignment, so he could rejoin the Dodgers' rotation in short order. Ryu holds a 3.00 ERA over seven starts this season.
May 11 - 2:30 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) played catch on Friday, the first time he's thrown since landing on the disabled list due to shoulder inflammation.

The Dodgers are taking their time and bringing him along cautiously as to avoid further injury. He won't be an option to return from the disabled list until late-May.
