Entering Tuesday, Hyun-Jin Ryu had been performing on a much higher level than anyone could have expected from him this spring.

His most recent start was no different. He mowed down the Milwaukee Brewers lineup for four shutout innings. Striking out two, allowing just one hit, and walking none over the entirety of his start. It is still a small sample size, but Ryu looks closer to his 2013 form than anything the Dodgers have season over the past injury riddled seasons.

His WHIP during spring training has lowered down to 0.67, meaning that he only allows two baserunners via hit or walk, every three innings.

In the 4th inning, Ryu grabbed himself an RBI single.

The main objective for Ryu is to make sure that throughout all of this, he still feels healthy and not fatigued. Maintaining his velocity as he goes deeper into games is essential.

Ryu announced after his outing that he feels close to the form that he had back in 2013 where he fit perfectly as the Dodgers number three starter.
