Following a visit to Dr. Neal ElAttrache today, Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu will begin a throwing program on Tuesday, the team announced. He is currently on the disabled list with shoulder inflammation.

Ryu, 27, is pain-free and ElAttrache felt an MRI exam was not necessary. He had a similar injury while playing in Korea a few years ago but was fine after a few days of rest. Due to a quirky schedule, Ryu started three of the team's first six games this season.

In seven starts and 39 innings this year, Ryu has gone 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. He went 14-8 with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP last season, which earned him a fourth place finish in the NL Rookie of the Year voting.

Ryu is eligible to come off the disabled list on May 13.
