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

He'll rejoin the rotation on Sunday against the Padres. Ryu has been sidelined since August 15 due to a strained glute, but made it through a simulated game on Wednesday without any issues. He'll return to a 13-6 record, 3.28 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 122/27 K/BB ratio over his first 137 1/3 frames.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) is slated to return to the Dodgers starting rotation on Sunday.

The hefty southpaw has been sidelined since August 15 due to a strained glute, but made it through a simulated game on Wednesday without any issues. He'll return to a 13-6 record, 3.28 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 122/27 K/BB ratio over his first 137 1/3 frames.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) threw a two-inning simulated game without pain on Wednesday.

Getting through the simulated game was the last hurdle for Ryu before a return. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly hasn't committed to when Ryu will be activated for a start, but it appears that he'll return Sunday or Monday at the latest.
Aug 27 - 6:37 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) could rejoin the Dodgers' rotation on Sunday.

He could be cleared to do so if he gets through a simulated game on Wednesday with no issues. However, the Dodgers could also elect to give Roberto Hernandez the ball Sunday and start Ryu Monday, allowing them to avoid making a corresponding roster move. Regardless, he's close to being activated.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) will throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

Ryu felt fine while throwing another bullpen session Tuesday, though he wasn't throwing at full effort. If he gets through Wednesday's simulated game with no issues, he should be cleared to rejoin the rotation in the next few days.
Aug 26 - 6:56 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) threw another bullpen session Friday.

That's back-to-back days throwing off a mound, a good sign for the left-hander. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Thursday that Ryu should be activated within a few days of August 30, when he's first eligible to come off the disabled list. Assuming all continues to go well, Ryu should be ready to roll by the start of September at the latest.
Aug 22 - 6:22 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Thursday that Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) should be activated "within a day or two" of when he's first eligible on August 30.

Ryu threw a bullpen session on Thursday with no issues. He's not expected to need a rehab assignment, so the left-hander will throw a few more bullpen sessions and/or simulated games before being activated. Ryu holds a 3.28 ERA over 23 starts this season.
Aug 21 - 7:21 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) threw a bullpen session on Thursday.

It comes after he played catch the previous two days. The Dodgers have said that Ryu won't need a rehab assignment before returning, so he appears to be on track for activation on August 30, the first day he's eligible.
Aug 21 - 6:26 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) isn't likely to need a rehab start before returning.

Ryu played catch again Wednesday, and Mattingly said he thinks the southpaw will be ready to go physically when his glute muscle feels better. "You feel like his arm will keep moving," Mattingly said. "He continues to improve. It sounded like yesterday was a little bit better." There's still no timetable for his return, but it sounds like he's moving in the right direction.
Aug 20 - 11:08 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) played catch Tuesday.

It's the first time he's thrown a ball since landing on the disabled list last week with a strained right gluteus muscle. It's not clear at this point how long Ryu will be sidelined, but Tuesday's throwing session was certainly a nice step provided that he rebounds from it with no lingering issues.
Aug 19 - 6:25 PM

Dodgers placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right gluteus muscle.

Ryu left Wednesday's start against the Braves with the injury, and underwent an MRI on Friday which revealed the grade 1-2 strain. He's likely to be sidelined until early September. Kevin Correia is likely to fill his spot in the rotation until he is able to return.
Aug 15 - 7:25 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Thursday that he doesn't think Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) will be ready to make his next scheduled start.

Ryu left Wednesday's game against the Braves with a strained right gluteus muscle. The club will know more after the left-hander undergoes an MRI on Friday, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll wind up on the disabled list. "I don't really have a lot of definitive information at this point," Mattingly said Thursday, who does not think Ryu will be ready to make his next scheduled start early next week. "I'm hoping we'll find out tomorrow."
Aug 14 - 8:01 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu left Wednesday's game against the Braves with a strained right gluteus muscle.

Ryu pointed toward his leg when talking to the trainer, but the injury was actually closer to his buttocks. It's unclear how long the strain might sideline the left-hander, but a trip to the disabled list is definitely in play.
Aug 13 - 10:01 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu left his start against the Braves on Wednesday with an apparent leg injury.

Ryu walked B.J. Upton on a 3-2 pitch and immediately gestured for the trainer. He pointed to his right hamstring before leaving, having given up three runs over 5 2/3 innings before the injury. The Dodgers should give us an update on his status shortly.
