Tue, 14 Apr 2015 11:17:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is hopeful to return in late May, but that timetable could be optimistic.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) was able to play catch Tuesday, April 7. He did not throw at maximum effort.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu to rest for two weeks

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:25:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu's (shoulder) MRI exam Tuesday, March 24, showed no change from the previous test, and he'll rest for two weeks before being re-evaluated.

Fantasy Tip: This much we know: Ryu will open 2015 on the disabled list. Beyond that is a mystery, but it's not encouraging that he battled through shoulder woes in 2014, as well. Ryu has quickly gone from a late-round sleeper pitcher to one to avoid in the short term. If he bounces back healthy early in the year, you can always snag him off the waiver wire.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu to start on DL

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 09:26:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) has shut down his throwing program after experiencing pain in his left shoulder when he played catch Sunday, March 22, and he will start the season on the disabled list, according to manager Don Mattingly. Dr. Neal ElAttrache will examine Ryu Monday, March 23. SP Joe Wieland may enter the rotation to replace Ryu to start the year, but the Dodgers are also looking to trade for a starter. The other pitchers being considered to fill in are Ps Carlos Frias and Mike Bolsinger, and both are in minor league camp.

Fantasy Tip: Before the injury, Ryu was an intriguing sleeper pick in the late middle rounds. However, he's now extremely risky, especially since he dealt with left shoulder problems throughout the year in 2014. Stash him late in mixed league drafts. Wieland may be worth a dollar investment in NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Joe Wieland may join LAD rotation

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 04:56:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Joe Wieland may be in the starting rotation to begin the 2015 season, with SP Hyun-jin Ryu (shoulder) likely headed for the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The team has said it would likely look for help elsewhere, considering SP Erik Bedard is already out with a lat strain. But it looks like this job might be Wieland's to lose. It's hard to tell how long he will have a spot, so don't go too crazy in your fantasy drafts. It may be worth an end-of-draft flier in some leagues or an occasional pickup in daily leagues, depending on how he performs.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu to throw soon

Sun, 22 Mar 2015 09:57:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) will resume throwing Monday, March 23, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Ryu will be ready for the start of the regular season. Ryu likely will be selected in the middle rounds of most drafts and could be a solid pitcher for owners.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu to start on DL?

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:02:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) had an anti-inflammatory injection in his left shoulder Wednesday, March 18, but he's optimistic that he can be ready for the regular season opener. However, manager Don Mattingly said the team will be cautious with Ryu, and he could start the year on the disabled list. The Dodgers don't need a fifth starter until April 13 or 14. Ryu had stiffness in his shoulder after pitching three innings in a game Wednesday, and he said the pain is similar, but less intense, than what he dealt with in 2014. He'll be shut down for three days to let the swelling subside, but he's not scheduled for any tests.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't appear that Ryu's shoulder ailment is serious or related to his mid-back stiffness earlier this spring, but it's definitely worth watching. Ryu already entered this year's drafts as an undervalued commodity residing in a good situation, and now he'll likely be even more attractive at a very cheap price late in drafts. Keep an eye on his recovery as we approach opening day.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu set for spring debut

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 14:12:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) threw a bullpen session Monday, March 9, in advance of his spring debut against the San Diego Padres Thursday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: Ryu's back injury turned out to be not so serious, so he should have plenty of time to be on track for the regular season opener. Ryu is an undervalued fantasy baseball starting pitcher that has had ERA's under 4.00 in each of his first two MLB seasons. He also increased his K/9 mark a full strikeout from 7.2 to 8.2 in 2014. He's a fine option in the late middle rounds while pitching in a pitcher-friendly park.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu to throw batting practice

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 09:16:33 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) is scheduled to throw batting practice Saturday, March 7, and will start in a spring training game five days later.

Fantasy Tip: Ryu has been a bit behind schedule because of a back injury but looks to be making progress. Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see if he deals with any setbacks over the next few weeks. Ryu should be considered as an option in one of the middle rounds of drafts.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu feels fine

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:07:03 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (back) said he felt fine after throwing a bullpen session Monday, March 2.

Fantasy Tip: Ryu's injury doesn't look to be serious. If he doesn't have anymore setbacks, he should be perfectly good to go for the start of the regular season. Ryu is an undervalued starting pitching commodity that posted an impressive 8.2 K/9 in 2014. He also pitches for one of the better National League teams and resides in an excellent pitcher's park.
