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.
Apr 25 - 1:55 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu fell to 0-3 after giving up four runs in six innings Tuesday against the Rockies.

Ryu struck out seven and walked just one, but three homers did him in. There are still things to like about the way Ryu is throwing, but it seems clear now that he'll be the first starter bumped from the Dodgers' rotation, whether it's for Scott Kazmir or Julio Urias.
Apr 19 - 1:57 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu surrendered four runs in 4 2/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Cubs.

Ryu's velocity has been decent in the early going, but he's still allowed 12 hits and three homers in 9 1/3 innings. We expect that he'll get better from here if he can stay healthy, but, at the same time, we're not at all confident that he will stay healthy.
Apr 13 - 5:33 PM

Despite being handed the loss, Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched well against the Rockies in his season opener on Friday, allowing two runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Ryu issued just one free pass and punched out five on the afternoon, against a vaunted offense in the house of horrors that is Coors Field. The big blow against him came on Dustin Garneau's solo blast in the fifth inning that gave the Rockies a 2-1 advantage. Unfortunately, it doesn't get much easier for Ryu who is scheduled to do battle against the Cubs at Wrigley Field his next time out on Thursday.
Apr 7 - 7:12 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that "80 to 90" pitches is a realistic target for Hyun-Jin Ryu in his season debut Friday in Colorado.

Ryu's first start of 2017 after essentially two lost seasons due to injury will come at Coors Field, which isn't really fair. The left-hander had a nice spring (2.57 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio across 14 innings), but fantasy owners should leave Ryu on the bench for at least one outing to see what he looks like.
Apr 7 - 12:11 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Hyun-Jin Ryu will be part of the team's rotation.

The Dodgers really had no idea what to expect from Ryu as they entered spring training after he missed virtually all of the last two seasons with shoulder and elbow injuries. However, he's gone out and posted a 2.57 ERA and 12/1 K/BB ratio across 14 Cactus League innings and, most importantly, feels great physically. Ryu obviously remains a big health risk, but the lefty put up a 3.17 ERA over 56 starts in his two healthy seasons with the Dodgers so he needs to be considered in mixed leagues. Brandon McCarthy and Alex Wood will battle for the final spot in the Dodgers' rotation.
Mar 27 - 7:14 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed three runs over five innings Monday against the White Sox.

Ryu surrendered a pair of homers, but he was fine otherwise, striking out four and walking none. The southpaw has managed to stay healthy this spring while putting up a 2.57 ERA. He's on track to begin the year with a rotation spot.
Mar 27 - 7:12 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (elbow, shoulder) said after throwing four shutout innings while allowing just one hit Tuesday that he feels "very close to my 2013 form."

Ryu posted a 3.00 ERA over 30 starts that season. The left-hander has had two straight years wrecked by injury and got a late start this spring, but he's now yielded just one run while boasting an 8/1 K/BB ratio over nine Cactus League frames. Ryu is still likely to begin the season on the disabled list and remains a big health risk, but his work the last few weeks has been very encouraging.
