Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin, shoulder) threw a successful 30-pitch bullpen session on Tuesday.

Ryu had to take some time off from his shoulder rehab when he suffered a groin strain in mid-April, but he's back at it now. The left-hander has no official recovery timetable, but if he's able to avoid further setbacks he could conceivably become an option for the Dodgers' rotation in late May. Brandon McCarthy (elbow) also threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.
Apr 26 - 7:16 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (groin, shoulder) will throw 20-25 pitches in a bullpen session Tuesday.

Ryu, who is making his way back from shoulder surgery, was scratched from a bullpen session earlier this month due to a strained groin. He's feeling better now, but he's still a ways off from pitching for the Dodgers.
Apr 25 - 7:11 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu was scratched from his scheduled bullpen session on Saturday because of a strained groin.

Ryu just can't seem to catch a break. He was expected to be ready for spring training but that timetable had to be pushed back to May. Now it's anyone's guess when he'll be back in the Dodgers' rotation. Ryu is 11 months removed from shoulder surgery. He hasn't thrown a pitch in the major leagues since October of 2014.
Apr 16 - 6:36 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will throw two simulated innings Thursday in Arizona.

It was going to be live batting practice, but Ryu will go ahead and treat it like a real appearance. The left-hander is working his way back from shoulder surgery and aiming to join the Dodgers' rotation in mid-May. He boasts a 3.17 ERA and 293 strikeouts in 344 major league innings, but there are obviously question marks.
Apr 5 - 8:15 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is on track to throw live batting practice on Thursday or Friday.

It will be his first time facing hitters since his shoulder surgery last May. The southpaw had to slow things down after a setback during spring training, but the hope is that he could be ready to join the Dodgers' rotation by the end of May.
Apr 4 - 5:38 PM

Dodgers placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 15-day disabled list with a left shoulder injury.

Ryu had a setback with his surgically-repaired shoulder early on in camp. He's throwing off a mound again, though, and could be back at some point in May.
Apr 3 - 1:08 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is on track to throw live batting practice next week.

Ryu had a setback with his surgically-repaired shoulder early on in camp, but he's beginning to ramp things up again. The southpaw still has a long way to go, but he could be a factor at some point in the first half if all goes well.
Mar 28 - 7:12 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu threw another bullpen session Tuesday and showed his best velocity since having a setback with his surgically-repaired left shoulder.

It's unclear how hard exactly Ryu was throwing, but the report is encouraging regardless. The left-hander is hoping to rejoin the Dodgers' rotation sometime in May, although there's still a very rough timetable.
Mar 22 - 8:10 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) to pitch in a game this spring.

Ryu is just ramping up his throwing program after a setback with his surgically-repaired shoulder, so the Dodgers aren't going to push him. The hope was that he would be ready to rejoin the major league rotation in May, but it appears the timeline will need to be pushed back further.
Mar 16 - 12:44 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) threw 20 pitches off a mound Monday in Dodgers camp and felt fine.

It was his first bullpen session since February 26, when he experienced a minor setback in his recovery from left shoulder surgery. Ryu will throw a couple more bullpen sessions before facing live hitters. He is currently on track to join the Dodgers' starting rotation around early-to-mid May.
Mar 14 - 1:25 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Monday in Dodgers camp.

Mar 14 - 10:44 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) played catch again Thursday.

It was his fourth consecutive day of flat-ground throwing. Ryu hit a minor snag in his recovery from shoulder surgery earlier this month, but he seems to be progressing nicely now.

Mar 10 - 11:57 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) played catch on Monday and will do so again on Tuesday.

Ryu said he felt good after Monday's workout. Obviously, it's a good sign that he's starting to work his way back, but there is still a long road ahead. The southpaw was shut down in late February after his surgically-repaired shoulder began barking on him. There's no current timetable for his next proper mound workout.
Mar 8 - 1:43 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is scheduled to resume throwing Monday in Dodgers camp.

That's great news for the rehabbing left-hander, who had to be shut down last week with soreness in his surgically-repaired shoulder. Ryu is hoping to join the Dodgers' starting rotation sometime in May. He'll need to avoid any further setbacks to pull that off.
