Ryu struck out three and walked two on the evening. Both runs on his line scored via solo homers, with Curtis Granderson burning Ryu in the first inning and Travis d'Arnaud doing likewise in the fourth.

Hyun-Jin Ryu held the Reds to two runs over five innings, striking out seven, in a win Saturday.

Ryu walked two and allowed eight hits, but he limited the damage en route to his third win of the year. He's been decent in 12 appearances, including 11 starts, posting a 4.35 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 58/19 K/BB ratio, but is just 3-6 to show for it. He'll keep working on that record Thursday when the Dodgers face the Mets.
Jun 17 - 9:13 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu surrendered four runs in seven innings Monday in a loss to the Nationals.

It seemed like Ryu wanted to show the Dodgers that he could work deep into games tonight, and he was able to do that, though he might have managed to cut a run or two off that total if he wasn't attacking the plate quite so vigorously. He ended up allowing seven hits, walking none and striking out four tonight. 78 of his 102 pitches were strikes. Ryu is expected to remain in the rotation for now and face the Reds this weekend.
Jun 6 - 1:50 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu held the Cardinals to one run over six innings Wednesday in a no-decision.

Ryu's start tonight was his first since May 18. He did well, but it's unclear whether he'll get another turn before Alex Wood comes off the disabled list. He might be in and out of the rotation the rest of the year.
May 31 - 11:11 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu will start for the Dodgers on Wednesday in St. Louis.

He'll be filling in for Alex Wood, who is being skipped due to SC joint inflammation. Ryu made a piggyback relief appearance last Thursday behind Kenta Maeda and earned his first career save after throwing four innings of scoreless ball against the Cardinals. The right-hander holds a 4.28 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 38/16 K/BB ratio in 40 total innings this season.
May 30 - 5:21 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the team has not considered demoting Hyun-Jin Ryu to the minor leagues.

However, Roberts also said he has no plans to use a six-man rotation, which leaves Ryu in limbo. The left-hander may have to settle for a long relief/mop-up role until a spot opens for him in the starting rotation. The Dodgers could also look to trade Ryu, though his value is probably at an all-time low right now.
May 25 - 8:26 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu will not start during this weekend's series against the Cubs.

The Dodgers are considering potentially moving Ryu into a long relief role. While he will not be pitching this weekend, manager Dave Roberts said that he could potentially take the mound at some point next week -- though in what capacity has not been determined. In seven starts this season, Ryu has posted a 4.75 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 36/15 K/BB ratio.
May 24 - 7:40 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu yielded two runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings in Thursday's win over the Marlins.

The Rockies ripped Ryu for 10 runs (five earned) in his last start, but he limited the damage well enough on Thursday. The only blemishes on his line came in the form of solo home runs by Justin Bour and Christian Yelich in the second and third innings, respectively. Ryu will carry a 4.75 ERA and 1.58 WHIP into a home start against the Cardinals next time he takes to the mound.
May 19 - 1:40 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu surrendered ten runs (five earned) on eight hits over four innings in Thursday's 10-7 loss to the Rockies.

Ryu missed his previous start due to a left hip contusion. Judging from Thursday's results, he might have wanted to take off one more. The southpaw allowed two runs in the first inning, five in the second -- though none counted against his ERA due to an Austin Barnes error -- and three more in the fourth (the final run in that frame scoring on a balk) before being relieved of duty. Ryu walked a whopping six batters in the contest and threw just 57 of his 101 pitches for strikes. The disaster of a start raised his ERA from 4.05 to 4.99. He also holds a rough 1.60 WHIP through six starts. A road showdown with the rival Giants shows next on his schedule as he tries to rebound from Thursday's debacle.
May 12 - 12:07 AM

Dodgers activated LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 10-day disabled list.

He landed on the DL with a hip contusion earlier this month but only missed one start. Ryu will get the nod against Colorado on Thursday, a team he's already faced twice this season. The left-hander holds a 4.05 ERA over five starts in 2017.
May 11 - 6:14 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (hip) will return to the Dodgers' rotation Thursday at Coors Field.

It's the first day he's eligible to be activated from the 10-day disabled list. Ryu missed just one turn with a left hip contusion. Clayton Kershaw is now lined up to start Friday versus the Rockies.
May 9 - 7:32 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Hyun-Jin Ryu (hip) will be able to return to the team's rotation without making a minor league rehab start.

Ryu landed on the disabled list with a bruised hip earlier this week but it looks like he'll only have to miss one start. The left-hander has boasted a solid strikeout rate in his five starts this year (9.79 K/9) but owns a disappointing 1-4 record to go with an equally lackluster 4.05 ERA.
May 6 - 8:13 PM

Dodgers placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-day disabled list with a left hip contusion.

Ryu felt a little tightness in his glute while sliding into second base on Sunday. The Dodgers have an off day on Thursday and are hoping that the left-hander will miss just one start. They'll now operate with a traditional five-man rotation for now.
May 1 - 7:30 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu earned his first victory of the season on Sunday, racking up nine strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings of one-run baseball against the Phillies.

Ryu scattered three hits and three walks on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Freddy Galvis in the first inning. Now 1-4 on the season, he'll look to further improve upon his 4.05 ERA and 1.31 WHIP when he does battle against the Padres in San Diego next weekend.
Apr 30 - 7:24 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu held the Giants to one run in six innings in Monday's loss.

Ryu deserved better tonight, but he's now 0-4 this season. Expectations are that he'll stay in the rotation for now, but his spot is tenuous, what with Julio Urias coming up and Rich Hill due back within 2-3 weeks.
