As Clayton Kershaw is days away from his return to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the team announced Friday Hyun-Jin Ryu was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to inflammation in his shoulder. The move is retroactive to April 28, which is one day after Ryu’s last start.
In the April 27 game, Ryu pitched 5.0 innings and allowed six runs on nine hits to the Colorado Rockies in what wound up being a 6-1 loss for the Dodgers. Ryu is 3-2 this season with a 3.00 ERA. According to Ryu, who spoke with media prior to the Dodgers’ game against the Miami Marlins, it’s a similar injury he suffered from in 2011 and made a full recovery after 10 days of rest. The Dodgers do not believe the injury to be serious.
