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.

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."

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.

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.
Aug 13 - 9:14 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu hurled seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits, Thursday in a win opposite the Angels.

The South Korean native struck out four and walked one. This was Ryu's fifth straight quality start since he got whacked for seven runs over 2 1/3 innings on July 7 against the Tigers. The southpaw had gone 3-0 with a 2.42 ERA and 28/3 K/BB rate in 26 innings over his last four starts since that debacle. Ryu (13-5, 3.21 ERA) is scheduled to square off against the Braves next week.
Aug 8 - 1:38 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu picked up his 12th victory of the season on Sunday, allowing three runs on six hits over his six innings of work.

Ryu racked up seven strikeouts on the night while walking just one. The Giants got to him for single runs in the third, fourth and fifth inning, the last one on a solo blast off the bat of Buster Posey. The supersized southpaw will carry a 3.44 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 105/23 K/BB ratio into next weekend’s start against the Cubs.
Jul 27 - 11:28 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs and five hits over seven innings Monday in beating the Pirates.

Ryu didn't give up a single extra-base hit in this one. He moved to 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA in three lifetime starts versus Pittsburgh.
Jul 21 - 10:28 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two hits while striking out 10 over six shutout innings in a 1-0 win over the Padres on Sunday.

Ryu bounced back from one of his worst starts of the year to turn in one of his best. The left-hander allowed just two singles without walking a batter, and his 10 strikeouts were a season high. Ryu moved to 10-5 with a 3.44 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 93/21 K/BB ratio over 104 2/3 innings, and he should continue to be one of the best starters in the National League in the second half.
Jul 13 - 11:21 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu was torched for seven runs over 2 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss against the Tigers.

Ryu had been on a roll, posting a 3.14 ERA since his return from the disabled list on May 21. Tuesday's outing will ding the ERA a bit. The Tigers banged out 10 hits against Ryu, who also walked two while striking out two. Ryu will try to lower his 3.65 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, and improve his 83/21 K/BB ratio, when he takes on the light-hitting Padres to close out the first half at home in his next start.
Jul 8 - 11:13 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu limited the Indians to two runs over seven innings Wednesday but took a no-decision.

Ryu struck out eight Cleveland batters and did not issue a walk in the solid outing, but Brian Wilson coughed up the Dodgers' lead in a brutal eighth inning. Ryu will carry a 9-4 record, 3.08 ERA, and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Tigers.
Jul 2 - 6:51 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu held the Padres to one run on four hits over six innings of work in a win on Sunday.

He walked one and struck out just two on the day, giving him his sixth win in his last seven starts. The left-hander continues to confound National League hitters, as the win moved him to 9-3 with a 3.06 ERA for the year. He'll take on the Cardinals on Friday.
Jun 22 - 10:05 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu fired six innings of one-run ball, allowing only three hits, in Monday's 5-1 win over the Rockies.

The left-hander struck out six and walked one. His lone blemish proved to be Wilin Rosario's fourth-inning solo homer to left field. The 27-year-old won't succumb to a sophomore slump. He's now 8-3 with a 3.18 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 64/17 K/BB rate over 76 1/3 innings. Ryu has the best matchup in baseball booked for Sunday when he travels to San Diego to face off against the anemic Padres' offense.
Jun 17 - 1:29 AM

Hyun-Jin Ryu fell to 7-3, allowing four runs over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

Ryu took his first loss since April 27, but there's no shame in being outdueled by Johnny Cueto. The lefty allowed six hits -- including a solo home run to Jay Bruce -- while walking two and striking out five. Ryu has a respectable 3.33 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 58/16 K/BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings. He'll face the Rockies at home in his next outing.
Jun 11 - 10:59 PM

Hyun-Jin Ryu yielded two runs in six innings in Friday's 7-2 win over the Rockies.

Ryu held the Rockies scoreless until he gave up a solo homer to Drew Stubbs and an RBI triple to Charlie Culberson in his final inning of work. The southpaw fanned two and walked two and has now won four straight starts. He'll carry a 3.08 ERA into a start against the Reds next week in Cincy.
