Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Thursday that Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin) will be sidelined until the second half of the season.
Ryu was placed on the disabled list Thursday afternoon after suffering a significant left groin strain in the second inning of his start Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks. He actually tore the muscle completely off the bone. It's awful news for the Dodgers, as Ryu was 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA and 0.88 WHIP through 29 2/3 innings (six starts) this season. Walker Buehler is now locked into a rotation spot in Los Angeles, probably until he reaches his innings limit. May 3 - 1:40 PM

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

Ryu suffered the injury in the second inning of his start Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks and could miss around 4-6 weeks. He's gone 3-0 with a 2.12 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 36/10 K/BB ratio in 29 2/3 innings (six starts) this season, so this is a big blow for a Dodgers team that has stumbled out of the blocks.

Hyun-Jin Ryu left his start on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks with a left groin strain.

Ryu tried to shake off the injury, but he was clearly in pain and exited with trainers in the second inning. He will almost certainly undergo an MRI, and then the Dodgers will likely see how he reacts to rest. Don't be surprised if Ryu is put on the disabled list in the coming days. Groin strains can sometimes cost pitchers around 3-6 weeks.

Hyun-Jin Ryu exited Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks with one out in the second inning with what appears to be a leg injury.

Ryu appeared to try and shake off the injury, but shook his head and was immediately pulled from the game. Pedro Baez is replacing Ryu on the mound. When we find out specifics of the injury, we'll update.
May 2 - 10:22 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings Friday in a no-decision versus the Giants.

Ryu gave up a pair of solo homers in the second, but he made up for that by driving in two runs with a double off Derek Holland. He ended up leaving with a 4-2 lead, though that quickly went kaput. Ryu remains 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA.
Apr 28 - 2:02 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed just two hits and three walks over seven scoreless innings while striking out eight batters Saturday against the Nationals.

Ryu has posted three consecutive quality starts, posting a 3-0 record with a 0.95 ERA, six hits, four walks and 25 strikeouts over 19 innings during the impressive span. The southpaw will look to continue his winning ways in his next scheduled start in a favorable matchup against Derek Holland and the Giants at AT&T Park on Friday.
Apr 22 - 2:39 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched six innings of two-run baseball while striking out nine in a victory over the Padres on Monday.

Ryu's only real mistake was a two-run homer by Christian Villanueva, and outside of that completely shut down the San Diego offense. The southpaw has looked the part this season, and now owns a 2.87 ERA for his efforts. Ryu will have a much tougher test on Sunday when he pitches at home against the Nationals.
Apr 17 - 1:24 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed just one hit with one walk over six scoreless innings with eight strikeouts in a win Tuesday against the Athletics.

The A's had no answers for the southpaw, as he allowed just a walk to Matt Chapman in the top of the first inning and a base hit to Stephen Piscotty in the top of the fifth frame. Ryu threw 60 of his 90 pitches for strikes for a quality start after subpar results in Arizona in his initial outing of the season on April 2. His next scheduled start is set for Monday in San Diego to kick off a two-start week.
Apr 11 - 1:14 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu struggled with his command and went just 3 2/3 innings in an extra-innings loss to the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Ryu 'only' gave up the three runs on five hits, but he also walked five while only striking out two. The left-hander will certainly get a few more turns through the rotation, but considering the depth the Dodgers have, he'll need to start throwing more strikes if he's going to stick as one of the five starters. He'll start again on Sunday against the Giants.
Apr 3 - 3:35 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed three runs -- one earned -- over 4 2/3 innings Tuesday in an exhibition start against the Angels.

Ryu gave up nine hits, though they were all singles. The 31-year-old right-hander finishes the spring with an ugly 7.04 ERA in 15 1/3 frames. He'll probably be good in spurts this season, but durability issues cap his fantasy outlook.
Mar 28 - 12:59 AM

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.
Mar 17 - 7:18 PM

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.
Mar 11 - 5:27 PM

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.
Mar 3 - 12:09 PM

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.
