Updates from Thursday, Aug. 14
Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reported on Hyun-Jin Ryu's status for his next start:
Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said Thursday he isn't counting on Hyun-Jin Ryu to make his next start.
“I don’t feel like his chances are very good of pitching on his turn,” Mattingly said.
Ryu strained a right buttock muscle in the Dodgers’ 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night. The left-hander appeared to be walking with a limp Thursday morning, and Mattingly confirmed that the left-hander is “still feeling something.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers' medical staff has been working overtime this year, and it won't be receiving a respite anytime soon after Hyun-Jin Ryu left Wednesday night's game with a "right gluteus muscle strain":
Hyun-Jin Ryu left tonight's game with a right gluteus muscle strain. He's listed as day to day.— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) August 14, 2014
After the Dodgers' 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register spoke with Ryu and manager Don Mattingly about the injury:
Nothing definitive on whether Hyun-Jin Ryu makes his next start. Ryu joked, "It's not like I blew my arm out" through translator— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) August 14, 2014
#Dodgers Mattingly said Hyun-Jin Ryu will probably have an MRI or see Dr. Neal ElAttrache when team returns to LA Friday— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) August 14, 2014
Ryu made it through 5.2 innings before signalling for the trainer. According to ESPNLosAngeles.com's Mark Saxon, the lefty sensed something was wrong, and that was the end of his night:
Hyun-Jin Ryu just immediately summoned the trainer after a 3-2 pitch to B.J. Upton and has left the game. Looked like his left leg— Mark Saxon (@markasaxon) August 14, 2014
The fact that the 27-year-old is only listed as day-to-day is at least good news for the Dodgers. For the time being, it looks like Ryu will avoid the disabled list, unlike Josh Beckett, who was placed on the 15-day DL last week.
Even a pitching staff as deep and talented as Los Angeles' can't afford to watch two starting pitchers go down within a week of one another. Ryu's been a solid contributor on the mound, entering Wednesday night with a 13-5 record and 3.21 ERA.
