Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu was diagnosed with irritation in his throwing shoulder and was scheduled for an MRI Monday. Ryu was administered a cortisone shot and will be shut down for at least four days.

On the bright side, the MRI didn’t differ from the one Ryu had in May. Carlos Frias is scheduled to start in Ryu’s place on Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies. More than likely, Frias will need to make an additional start as Ryu’s injury history suggests he won’t return before the regular season concludes.

The shoulder inflammation that sidelined Ryu earlier in the season caused him to miss a total of 23 days. Assuming the Dodgers maintain their position atop the NL West standings, Ryu’s first conceivable postseason start would be for Game 3 of the NLDS on Oct. 6 — or 21 days from now.

This season, Ryu is 14-7 with a 3.38 ERA with a 1.191 WHIP in 26 starts.
