The Los Angeles Dodgers’ pitching staff is tied for third in MLB right now with a team 3.34 ERA, and reinforcements are on the way. Starting pitchers Hyun-Jin Ryu and Brandon McCarthy continue on each of their individual rehab assignments. Both hurlers will start for Triple-A Oklahoma City this week, manager Dave Roberts told reporters.
Dave Roberts told reporters next rehab start for McCarthy should be 4 IP on Wednesday, for Ryu 5 IP later in week. Likely for @okc_dodgers.

Last Wednesday saw McCarthy take the hill for Rancho Cucamonga, where he pitched three innings while allowing two runs. Ryu started the next day for the Quakes and tossed four shutout innings.

Hyun Jin Ryu will make his next rehab start for OKC #Dodgers on Thursday. 5 IP or 65ish pitches is the target.

After making four starts in 2015, McCarthy has not made a major league appearance this season after being signed to a four-year contract during the winter of 2014. Ryu has also not made a start in 2016, but it looks like both players are improving on their stints in the minors and, if all goes well, will be ready to be activated in the coming weeks.
