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. Aug 13 - 4:24 AM

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.
Aug 6 - 11:11 PM

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.
Jul 31 - 12:08 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) returned to action in Monday's no-decision against the Twins, allowing two runs, five hits and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings.

Ryu threw 50 of his 79 pitches for strikes, and it is likely his pitch count was capped somewhat since he was making his first start after a month-long layoff due to a bruised foot. His next scheduled start is tentatively set for Saturday at home against the rival Giants.
Jul 25 - 4:33 AM

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

Ryu will start Monday against the Twins. He's missed most of this month with a bruised foot, although it's debatable how hurt he's actually been.
Jul 24 - 6:55 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) is expected to start against the Twins on Monday.

Ryu was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised left foot on July 4. He tossed a simulated game this week which went off without a hitch and so long as he experiences no setbacks over the coming day, should be good-to-go on Monday. He owns a 4.21 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 14 appearances (13 starts) this season.
Jul 19 - 6:41 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) is expected to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation next Monday or Tuesday.

That will give the Dodgers a six-man rotation, but they've been comfortable operating with a non-traditional rotation setup all year. Ryu, who's been out since July 4 with a foot injury, holds a 4.21 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 13 starts and one relief appearance this season with Los Angeles.
Jul 18 - 6:46 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) will not pitch for the Dodgers on their road trip and whether he returns as a starter or reliever hasn't been determined.

Ryu resumed throwing off a mound Friday and should be physically ready to pitch in a game pretty soon, but clearly his role is up in the air. It's frustrating for his fantasy owners, but this has been the modus operandi of the Dodgers this season.
Jul 14 - 5:29 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (foot) threw a bullpen session Friday.

Ryu is nearly two weeks removed from suffering a bruised left foot that was the result of being hit with a comebacker. He should be physically ready to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation later this month, but it's anyone's guess as to whether that will happen given how they've juggled their starters around this season.
Jul 14 - 3:07 PM

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

A scan of Ryu's foot came back negative on Monday, but he's still working through some discomfort and will rest through the All-Star break. Brandon McCarthy is expected to be activated to start Saturday against the Royals.
Jul 4 - 6:27 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu will be examined further on Monday due to continued soreness in his left foot.

Initial X-rays came back negative after Ryu took a comebacker off his foot in a start last Wednesday, but he's still in some discomfort. Given how liberal the Dodgers have been with the 10-day disabled list this season, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Ryu land on the DL even if Monday's exam goes well.
Jul 2 - 2:37 PM

X-rays on Hyun-Jin Ryu's foot came back negative.

He took a comebacker off his foot Wednesday against the Angels but somehow stayed in the game. Ryu doesn't need a walking boot but admits that his foot is still sore. Manager Dave Roberts wouldn't commit to Ryu making his next start, calling his status TBA.
Jun 29 - 9:05 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu fanned eight while allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday versus the Angels.

Ryu took a shot from Andrelton Simmons off his foot, but he was able to stay in the game tonight and put together another solid showing. He's allowed exactly two runs in three straight starts, though he didn't complete six innings in any of those. He should be a nice play in mixed leagues with scheduled home outings against the Diamondbacks and Royals next week.
Jun 29 - 1:39 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu surrendered two runs on five hits over five innings while taking a no-decision in Thursday's win over the Mets.

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. He will carry a 4.30 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 61/21 K/BB ratio (67 innings) into a home start against the Angels next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 23 - 1:47 AM

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.
