Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated Tuesday that Hyun-Jin Ryu might be left off the NLDS roster.
Los Angeles will start Clayton Kershaw in Game 1, Rich Hill in Game 2, and Yu Darvish in Game 3, with Alex Wood likely handling a potential Game 4. That obviously leaves Ryu without a rotation spot, and it sounds like he's not in strong consideration for a relief role. "I don't know if Ryu is going to be in the 'pen," Roberts said. "He is obviously uncomfortable in that role." Tue, Oct 3, 2017 08:23:00 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu was lifted after allowing five runs in two innings Friday in a loss to the Rockies.

That Ryu has come back and been a well above average starts this year after two lost seasons is a huge accomplishment, but he probably won't play much of a role for the Dodgers in October, at least not unless another starter gets hurt. He finishes the regular season with a 3.77 ERA and a 116/45 K/BB ratio in 126 2/3 innings. Somehow, though, that resulted in just a 5-9 record for the 100-win Dodgers.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (forearm) played catch Monday.

Ryu departed his start Saturday after being hit on the left forearm by a comebacker, but the swelling has gone down and he could be ready to start again this weekend. The left-hander will try to throw a bullpen session mid-week to see if he can take the ball over the weekend. If he's not ready, Brandon McCarthy could get a start.

X-rays turned up negative on Hyun-Jin Ryu's left forearm.

Ryu was removed from his start Saturday night against the Giants after getting struck by a Joe Panik comebacker in the top of the third inning. He only suffered a contusion, but that contusion could keep him from making another start before the end of the regular season.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was removed in the third inning of his start Saturday against the Giants after getting struck on the left arm by a Joe Panik line drive.

The comebacker was clocked at 93.9 mph off Panik's bat. Look for a status update within the next hour or so. Ross Stripling took over on the mound for the Dodgers with one out in the top of the third.

Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched well in no-decision against the Nationals on Sunday, allowing three hits and a pair of walks over 4 2/3 shutout innings.

The left-hander struck out five on the night. Unfortunately for Ryu, and elevated pitch count of 98 forced him from the game before he was able to complete the fifth inning. He has pitched fairly well this season, compiling a 3.46 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 114/44 K/BB ratio across 122 1/3 innings. He'll do battle against the Giants his next time out at home on Saturday.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will start Sunday against the Nationals.

Ryu was skipped on his last turn through the Dodgers' rotation, but now it's Kenta Maeda who will have his schedule altered. Ryu owns a 3.59 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 109/42 K/BB ratio in 117 2/3 innings (21 starts, one relief appearance) this season with Los Angeles.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will be skipped on his next turn in the Dodgers' rotation.

Kenta Maeda is scheduled to pitch Monday's series opener in San Francisco and Clayton Kershaw will go Tuesday or Wednesday. Ryu looked sharp in his last outing Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, but Los Angeles has six healthy starters at the moment.
Sat, Sep 9, 2017 06:26:00 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed one earned run, three hits and five walks with seven strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

While the walk total was a bit high, Ryu was sharp against a red-hot offense which entered play with 11 consecutive victories. He'll look to carry over the momentum into his next scheduled start on Monday in San Francisco opposite Chris Stratton.

Hyun-Jin Ryu struggled Wednesday, giving up six runs in four innings against the Diamondbacks.

Adam Rosales, Paul Goldschmidt and Chris Herrmann all homered off him tonight. Ryu had allowed just one homer and a total of six runs in six starts since the All-Star break. He's still worth using in mixed leagues for now, though that could change at any time.

Hyun-Jin Ryu scattered four hits over six innings of one-run ball Thursday in the Dodgers’ win over the Pirates.

He finished with two strikeouts and also issued two walks. Ryu ran into some trouble in the second inning when he allowed two hits including Jordy Mercer’s RBI single with two outs in the frame. But aside from that, it was smooth sailing for the left-hander. He’ll take a 10-start unbeaten streak into his next outing Wednesday at Arizona.

Hyun-Jin Ryu kept the Tigers off the scoreboard for five innings but didn't stick around long enough to get the win on Saturday.

The Dodgers didn't score until the seventh inning and the win was credited to reliever Ross Stripling. Ryu notched four strikeouts and gave up only three base hits, but he struggled to throw strikes, walking four batters and burning 89 pitches to get through five frames. The left-hander has a 3.45 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 98 strikeouts in 101 2/3 innings spread over 18 starts and one relief appearance.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was tagged for three earned runs, seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Saturday against the Padres.

Ryu threw just 68 of his 108 pitches for strikes. The good news is he hasn't suffered a loss over his past eight outings dating back to June 5, but he also has won just twice during the span. Ryu will look to get back in the win column when he works opposite Matthew Boyd in an interleague road start next Saturday in Detroit.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Mets, allowing just one hit over seven shutout innings.

Ryu punched out eight on the night and didn't walk a batter. He surrendered nothing but a lowly single to Mets' catcher Travis d'Arnaud, mixing and matching his pitches to perfection. The 30-year-old southpaw has been masterful in each of his last two starts and now boasts a 3.53 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 89/26 K/BB ratio across 91 2/3 innings this season. He'll look to extend his recent dominance when he takes on Padres on Sunday.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was outstanding in a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, racking up seven strikeouts over seven shutout innings.

The left-hander scattered five hits and a walk over his dominant effort. Unfortunately for him, the Dodgers were unable to provide any run support. It was the best start of the season for Ryu who now owns a 3.83 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the season. He'll do battle against the Mets his next time out in New York on Saturday.
