Hyun-Jin Ryu was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday with inflammation in his throwing shoulder. Ryu said the injury was similar to one he suffered in 2011, which he was able to recover from after resting for 10 days.

The injury initially didn’t seem to raise much concern, however it increased with news that Ryu was returning to Los Angeles to meet with Dr. Neal ElAttrache to determine if an MRI was necessary. According to the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Twitter account, Ryu’s meeting with ElAttrache was positive:

Ryu is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA through seven starts. He managed to pitch just five innings, allowing six runs on nine hits in his last start against the Colorado Rockies on April 27.

According to David Vassegh of AM 570, A.J. Ellis may be ready for the next step in his recovery from knee surgery:

Ellis was working on running from first to third base on Sunday before the Dodgers’ game with the Miami Marlins. The 33-year-old catcher has recovered quickly from the surgery to repair his meniscus with the only minor setback coming when his knee became irritated after running on April 28.

Thus far, the season has been marred by one injury after the other. However, Miguel Olivo’s addition to the roster and Clayton Kershaw’s return on Tuesday will help offset Ellis’ and Ryu’s absence.
