Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (3-2) allowed one earned run on five hits and one walk while striking out six across seven innings to earn the win Wednesday win over Atlanta.

Ryu cruised through the Atlanta lineup, with the only blemish coming on a solo home run by William Contreras. He was efficient with his pitches, throwing 63 strikes on 94 total pitches while also completing more than six innings for the third time this season. Ryu now has a 2.95 ERA with a 38:5 K:BB across 39.2 innings, and he is currently lined up to draw his next start Tuesday against Boston.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Gives up four runs in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (2-2) gave up four runs on six hits and a walk while fanning six across five innings Thursday at Oakland. He was credited with the win.

Ryu didn't have his best stuff Thursday and tied a season high in runs allowed, but he still found a way to pick up his second win of the campaign. The veteran left-hander has done a good job limiting walks this season and owns an excellent 8.0 K/BB through 32.2 innings so far. He is slated to take the ball next week on the road against Atlanta.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Reinstated prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (hip) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's start against the Athletics, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Ryu spent the minimum of 10 days on the injured list with a glute strain, and he'll be on the mound for Thursday's series finale in Oakland. The left-hander recorded a 2.60 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in 27.2 innings across five starts to begin the season. Right-hander David Phelps (lat) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Cleared to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (hip) will be activated from the 10-day injured list and start Thursday against the Athletics, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

The 34-year-old landed on the injured list with a glute strain April 28, and he'll return Thursday after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf. Ryu has a 2.60 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and 26:3 K:BB across 27.2 innings through five starts this season.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: On track for Thursday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (hip) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list and start Thursday's game against the Athletics, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Ryu was placed on the injured list Wednesday due to a glute strain, but he'll only end up missing one turn through the rotation. He's been solid through five outings this season, owning a 2.60 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with a 26:3 K:BB across 27.2 frames.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: May only miss one start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo is hopeful that Ryu (glue strain) will miss only one start, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The Jays were also hopeful that Ryu wouldn't miss any starts 24 hours ago and now he is on the 10-day injured list, so we shouldn't read too much into these comments. The team's beat writers are saying that Toronto is being cautious with Ryu in the short term. There will likely be a bullpen game Saturday and Ross Stripling (forearm) could return from the IL to start Sunday. Ryu could be activated to start May 6 in Oakland if he misses the minimum amount of time.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (glute strain) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

As recently as Tuesday afternoon, the Blue Jays said Ryu was unlikely to miss his turn this weekend in Atlanta, so he either suffered a setback or they weren't being forthright. He will be first eligible to return May 6 in Oakland.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Not expected to miss start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (glute) may get an extra day of rest but is not expected to miss a start this weekend against Atlanta, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

He will likely start either Saturday or Sunday after exiting is last start Sunday against the Rays with a minor right glute strain. Ryu has a 2.60 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 26:3 K:BB in 27.2 innings this season.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Expected to be fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (glute) is expected to be fine after he was removed from his start Sunday against the Rays, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Ryu racked up five strikeouts in 3.2 innings before he sustained a minor right glut strain that forced him to leave the game early. Manager Charlie Montoyo wasn't concerned about Ryu's injury after Sunday's game, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the southpaw make his next start as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks in the coming days.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Early exit attributed to glute strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays announced that Ryu was removed from his start Sunday against the Rays due to a minor right glute strain.

Ryu was sharp (five strikeouts in 3.2 scoreless innings) before the injury ended his day early. Since he departed with the game knotted at 0-0, Ryu won't factor into any decision, but he at least looks in good shape to avoid missing additional time due to the injury. Assuming Ryu is able to complete a between-starts bullpen session in the next couple of days without issue, he'll likely be cleared to make a start during next weekend's three-game series versus Atlanta.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Lifted due to injury in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu was removed in the bottom of the fourth inning of Sunday's game against the Rays due to an apparent injury, Steve Carney of Sports Radio 620 WDAE reports.

After a trainer visited him on the mound, Ryu checked out of the game, but an explanation behind his removal likely won't come until later Sunday. Ryu had struck out five over 3.2 scoreless innings while giving up three hits and a walk before departing.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Sunk by three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (1-2) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Red Sox.

Ryu had little trouble getting through three scoreless innings to begin the outing. However, he ran into trouble in the fourth, allowing singles to the first two batters he faced followed by a three-run homer to Xander Bogaerts. Entering the contest, Ryu had allowed only four earned runs across his first 19 innings of the season to go along with a 19:2 K:BB. This performance should just be a small setback, and Ryu will look to bounce back in his next start, currently projected to come Sunday at Tampa Bay.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Whiffs seven for first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (1-1) earned the win Tuesday after holding the Yankees to one run on four hits and a walk while striking out seven across 6.2 innings.

Ryu had no problem locking down his first win of the season, blanking the Yankees through the first six innings before a throwing error by Cavan Biggio in the seventh caused a run to score on an RBI double by Aaron Hicks. Despite the hiccup, Ryu was in top form following five days of rest, facing the minimum batters through the first five frames and sending all three batters down on strikes in the second. The southpaw will look to defend a shiny 1.89 ERA and 0.89 WHIP during his next start Sunday at Kansas City.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Quality start in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (0-1) allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out seven over seven innings in a loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.

Ryu didn't pitch poorly, but the Blue Jays' offense couldn't get anything done against Rangers starter Kyle Gibson. The 34-year-old Ryu has pitched to a 2.92 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 12:1 K:BB across his first 12.1 innings of the season. The southpaw is therefore probably a bit unlucky not to have a win yet, but he'll look to change that Monday in a home start versus the Yankees.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Allows two runs Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu allowed two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out five over 5.1 innings in Thursday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

Ryu was able to limit baserunners throughout most of this season-opening start, but the two-run homer he surrendered to Gary Sanchez in the bottom of the second inning forced the southpaw to settle for a no-decision. Ryu lines up to make his second start of the season on the road Wednesday against the Rangers.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Named Opening Day starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu has been named the Blue Jays' Opening Day starter, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Ryu posted a 3.60 ERA with 11 strikeouts in 10 innings across three Grapefruit League starts this spring, and manager Charlie Montoyo confirmed Friday the southpaw will take the mound against the Yankees on April 1. Ryu made 12 starts for the Blue Jays last year and recorded a 2.69 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 72:17 K:BB in 67 innings.

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Pitches in intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu faced hitters in an intrasquad game Wednesday at the Blue Jays' spring training facility, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Though he has yet to make his Grapefruit League debut, Ryu remains on schedule with his build-up program for the regular season. As is the case for many veteran starters around the league, Ryu is simply getting his arm conditioned on the back fields at the spring facility, giving the Jays' lesser established pitchers the chance to showcase their skills in the Grapefruit League. Toronto has yet to name an Opening Day starter, but Ryu is the leading candidate to get the ball April 1 against the Yankees after compiling a 2.69 ERA and 1.15 WHIP over 67 innings in his inaugural season in Toronto.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Takes loss in elimination game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu was charged with seven runs (three earned) on eight hits over 1.2 innings in a loss to the Rays on Wednesday in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series. He struck out three batters and issued one walk.

This one was over early as the Rays put up seven runs in the first two innings, with the big blow (a Hunter Dozier grand slam) coming right after a fielding error by Bo Bichette. It's a disappointing way to end the season for Ryu, but the lefty had another outstanding campaign in his first year with Toronto -- his third straight regular season with a sub-3.00 ERA. His strikeout rate was up nearly four percentage points from 2019.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Dazzles in clinching win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (5-2) picked up the win Thursday, allowing five hits and two walks over seven scoreless innings in a 4-1 victory over the Yankees. He struck out four.

The veteran lefty more than earned his big offseason payday as he came through with another dazzling effort to clinch a playoff berth for the Blue Jays. Ryu heads into the postseason with a 2.69 ERA and 72:17 K:BB through 67 innings.

Blue Jays' Hyun-Jin Ryu: Struck out eight in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryu (4-2) took the loss Saturday at Philadelphia after giving up two runs on six hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out six.

The veteran left-hander was charged with his first loss since July 30, as Toronto's offense managed only two hits for the game. Ryu has a 3.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 68:15 K:BB over 60 innings and lines up for his final start of the regular season Thursday against the Yankees.
