Ryu (elbow) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday, Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports. After announcing earlier in the afternoon that Ryu would miss his next start Wednesday, the Dodgers went ahead and placed him on the DL. At this point, it's unclear exactly what's going on with his elbow, but it's yet another bump in the road for the left-hander, who's made just one start since the end of the 2014 season.
Ryu (elbow) will likely miss his next start due to elbow irritation, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports. Ryu could be headed for another DL stint as he is reporting elbow irritation following a lengthy stay on the DL recovering from shoulder surgery he had last May. More news concerning the severity of this new injury is likely to be released in the upcoming days. The 29-year-old southpaw gave up six earned runs over 4.2 innings in his first major league start back from the DL on July 7.
Ryu's next start is scheduled for Wednesday, reports MLB.com's Ken Gurnick. Ryu threw a bullpen session on Sunday as he looks to rebound from a tough 2016 debut (4.2 innings, six runs versus the Padres) this past Thursday.
Ryu (0-1) gave up six earned runs on eight hits and two walks over 4.2 innings in Thursday's 6-0 loss to the Padres. He struck out four. Ryu certainly had his moments despite the unfavorable stat line, recording first-pitch strikes on 13 of 24 batters and inducing 10 swinging strikes. Coming off a 14-month absence due to a shoulder injury, the 29-year-old ran into trouble in four of the five innings he went to the mound. He gave up a first-inning homer to Melvin Upton, Jr., a second-inning RBI single to opposing pitcher Drew Pomeranz, and an run-scoring two-bagger to Alexei Ramirez in the fourth before coming undone in the fifth. After securing the first two outs, back-to-back doubles by Matt Kemp and Yangervis Solarte plated the former, Following an intentional walk to Derrick Norris, Alex Dickerson ended Ryu's night with an RBI triple to deep right. While it was undoubtedly a rough landing for the left-hander following his extended absence, he'll look to rebound in his first post-All-Star-break start.
Ryu (shoulder) has been officially reinstated from the 60-day disabled list ahead of his start Thursday against the Padres. Ryu will make his long-anticipated season debut Thursday after a difficult recovery and rehab from shoulder surgery last May that had numerous starts and stops. According to Andy McCullough of the LA Times, Ryu won't be on a pitch count Thursday. However, given that he never threw more than 84 pitches in any of his rehab appearances, it's unlikely that he'll make it very deep into Thursday's outing.
