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 is likely headed for another DL stint as he is now reporting elbow irritation following his last start on July 7. It's another round of bad news for the 29-year-old as he appears to have encountered another setback following a bumpy rehab from shoulder surgery that he returned from earlier this month. The 29-year-old had an MRI conducted which revealed no significant changes from previous evaluations but he is still set to be shut down indefinitely until the discomfort subsides. Bud Norris could be bumped up a day to start Wednesday in place of Ryu.
Ryu threw a bullpen session Sunday and will look to rebound from his tough 2016 debut -- six runs over 4.2 innings versus the Padres prior to the All-Star break.
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 a run-scoring two-bagger to Alexei Ramirez in the fourth, before coming undone in the fifth. After securing the first two outs, he gave up back-to-back doubles to Matt Kemp and Yangervis Solarte, resulting in one run. Following an intentional walk to Derek Norris, Alex Dickerson ended Ryu's night with an RBI triple to deep right that brought home both Solarte and Norris. 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.
