Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu added a new grip for his slider earlier this month that he learned from SP Clayton Kershaw, and Ryu used it first in his two-hit, 10-strikeout outing against the San Diego Padres before the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: Aside from a seven-run beatdown against the Detroit Tigers earlier this month, Ryu has been pretty solid in July with his new slider at his disposal. Continue starting him with confidence.
