The Los Angeles Dodgers announced multiple injury transactions today, including the return of outfielder Joc Pederson from the 15-day disabled list and the addition of pitchers Hyun-Jin Ryu and Casey Fien to the 15-day DL.

With the corresponding move of Pederson comes the return of Luis Avilan to the Dodgers pitching mix. Avilan was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

According to multiple reports and as first reported by Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball, Ryu will miss his next scheduled start due to left elbow irritation.

Ryu was supposed to make an appearance during the Dodgers’ next series, which begins on Tuesday against the Washington Nationals.

Since returning to the Dodgers rotation for the first time in over almost two seasons, Ryu has made one start (July 7 vs. San Diego). In 89 pitches, the 29-year-old left-hander tossed 4.2 innings, allowing six earned runs on six hits. Along with taking the loss, his ERA skyrocketed to 11.57.

Fien was placed on the disabled list amidst his worst appearance as the Dodger, allowing one run on two hits while walking two Arizona Diamondbacks on July 16. His ERA that day was infinity.

The pitching news seems to come in bunches for this particular part of the Dodgers organization. Ace Clayton Kershaw has been on the disabled list since June 26 with no timetable for his return.

The Dodgers’ rotation has been a carousel of injuries this season, and it will be interesting to see when the organization decided to pull the trigger on recalling Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City. For now, the Dodgers will have the stability of Pederson in the lineup again and left-handed bullpen help.

    Do yourself a favor Dodgers and cut your loses on Ryu.  He’s done.  Been saying this for months now.
