Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will restart his rehab assignment with the Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Sunday. Manager Dave Roberts said Ryu will be limited in his appearance with the Quakes.
Ryu has had setbacks in his quest to return to the Dodgers rotation and made three rehab starts in May including one with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will throw two innings, Roberts said. He'll need 4-5 starts to be ready. So his throwing program has basically been reset.

Ryu is still rehabbing from surgery to repair a torn labrum, which he underwent over a year ago. Still the Dodgers are optimistic Ryu can return strong.
“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 tells Orange County Register’s Bill Plunkett.
Ryu won’t be the only Dodger making an appearance with the Quakes as Brandon McCarthy’s rehab assignment began on Saturday. McCarthy is returning from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent last May.

The Quakes also tweeted out that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will be starting his rehab on Monday. It was first reported that Puig would start his rehab at Lake Elsinore.
And while we're firing off tweets late at night, don't forget Dave Roberts confirmed today that Puig is scheduled to be with Quakes Monday!
