Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu will continue his rehab assignment with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, who are on the road in San Jose. Ryu is continuing to rehab from surgery and has had setbacks recently.

With so many setbacks manager Dave Roberts says that Ryu has a lot to prove before fitting him back into the Dodgers rotation.

From Bill Plunkett, OC Register:

“With the way that it’s gone, we’ve got to have assurance that he can hold his stuff and maintain health … When you’ve accrued all this time on the disabled list, we’ve got to have confidence that he’s not going to go back once we’ve made that decision (to activate him),” Roberts said.

Pitcher Brandon McCarthy is also continuing his rehab with the Quakes.

Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Might Shut Down Julio Urias After Next Two Starts

As for pitcher Alex Wood, good news came for the Dodgers as he will begin throwing next week. Originally, Wood was expected out for a few more weeks, but the inflammation in his elbow has gone down significantly.

From J.P. Hoornstra, Daily News writer:

Wood said he had some fluid drained from the elbow and received a cortisone shot. Since then, his inflammation subsided enough that the Dodgers’ training staff cleared him to begin throwing about 3 1/2 weeks after his last game, May 30 in Chicago.

Wood said his throwing program ought to last three weeks “at the most” before he’s cleared to pitch in a game. Barring any setbacks, Wood could be back on a mound in a game in mid-July.

In his 10 starts for the Dodgers this year, Wood is 1-4 with a 3.99 earned-run average. Wood also told Hoornstra that he believes he suffered his injury on May 15th vs. the St. Louis Cardinals. Wood claims that it affected his throwing in each of his next two starts.

    Great information Elisa, thank you! It is amazing with a patch work pitching rotation the Dodgers have maintained a better than .500 record. And if the offense had done its job we would be in contention. Honeycutt has done a remarkable job in my opinion bringing in different guys and coaching them up. 
    I am not a Bolsinger fan but they do not appear to have many options at this point. Hopefully Bollsinger will be dropped to OK City or DFA’d when guys get off the Disabled List.
    Wood is a very odd pitcher he has a great game and then a bad one. Last year he injured his ankle this year his elbow. He appears to be fragile in that he gets injured but he tries to throw through it and loses games not a good thing. 
    Ryu if he is back to his previous effectiveness will help tremendously but unless he is bringing a bat that can score runs nothing will help this club.
    When they put Urias on the shelf for awhile I am hoping they let DeLeon get some innings. With Urias, DeLeon and Stripling we have 3 very promising guys ready for next year. 

    Has the Front Office gotten to the point that they will admit Grandal is a Mendoza line hitter with one pseudo skill “pitch framing” and get rid of this guy? Trading for the Brewer catcher would be incredible as he can catch and hit for average and a little power.
