Dodgers News: Hyun-Jin Ryu Placed on 10-Day Injured List

It’s totally not phantom.

The Dodgers have placed Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-Day IL with neck soreness. The move to the IL is retroactive to August 1st.

Ryu, 32, is having his strongest season in Major League Baseball, to date. He currently has an 11-2 record with a 1.53 ERA. Ryu also has 117 strikeouts on the season and is coming off one of the best months of his career. In July, he was 2-0 in 5 starts, with a 0.55 ERA and 23 strikeouts.

The Korean Monster was the NL Starter for the All-Star Game and is among league leaders in ERA (1st), winning percentage (2nd, .846), and strikeouts-to-walk ratio (2nd, 7.31).

This will be Ryu’s second trip to the IL this season. He missed time in April for a left groin strain. He missed significant time in 2018 after he tore his groin muscle away from the bone.

Ryu was awarded National League Pitcher of the Month in the month of May after going 5-0 with a 0.59 ERA and 26 strikeouts.

  1. Is he really hurt or just to let him some rest. This also gives us the opportunity to see what May can Gonsolin can also display his talents.

  2. Totally Rest ! Very good move to see these elite prospects at this level. Management & even May learned from this move. Another thought about Ryu, even though he is still battling he has slowed down a bit since the first half.
    A loss like this one scares me, a Padres pitcher with an E.R.A. way over 4 and we don’t do much ?
    Hoping we have some “ mo “ come playoff time ! Go Dodgers
