Hyun-jin Ryu#99, SP, LA Dodgers
- March 25, 1987
- Birth Place:
- Incheon, South Korea
— Player Notes
Advice: He received a cortisone shot earlier in the week and has taken a while to respond favorably. The hulking southpaw still believes that he will be back in time for the beginning of the playoffs, but he'll need to make significant strides very quickly for that to happen.

Advice: The hope had been that he could start throwing Friday, but he remains sore after receiving a cortisone shot. Ryu did report improvement Friday and thinks he'll be back in time for the playoffs, but we'll just have to see how he recovers over the next couple weeks.

Advice: Ryu has been shut down over the last week due to inflammation in his pitching shoulder. His timetable should be clarified over the coming days, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, not surprisingly, said it would be "a stretch" to think Ryu could be ready to fill the vacancy in the team's rotation on Monday.

Advice: An MRI on Ryu's left shoulder showed only inflammation, but the Dodgers still plan to bring him along slowly. He'll resume throwing later this week, but there will be barely over a week left in the season at that point and he just won't have time. Whether he'll be able to make it back for some starts during the postseason remains to be seen. Carlos Frias is starting Wednesday in Ryu's place.

Advice: Ryu exited his start Friday against the Giants with left shoulder irritation and he is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday in Los Angeles. He told reporters that the feeling of discomfort is familiar and not overly serious, but the Dodgers obviously want to make sure. Ryu is 14-7 with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP in 26 starts this season.

Advice: That according to the Los Angeles Times' Bill Shaikin. If Ryu can't make his next start -- and the odds are certainly against it -- manager Don Mattingly said Carlos Frias will fill in.

Advice: Before departing, Ryu had allowed four runs on five hits in his one inning of work, and clearly didn't look like himself. The Dodgers should provide an update on his status after the game.
