Ryu (shoulder) will throw a bullpen session Saturday, J.P Hoonstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ryu is set to throw his second bullpen of the week Saturday after a groin strain caused a hiccup in his rehab program. Provided that Saturday's bullpen session goes off without a hitch, Ryu could be in line to start throwing live batting practices in the near future. Still, Ryu is believed to be a ways away from getting back into a Dodgers uniform as his current timetable makes a return in May seem unlikely.

Ryu (shoulder) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A groin strain temporarily interrupted Ryu's recovery from shoulder surgery, but he's back on elevated ground and a return to live sessions may not be too far off. Still, the setback does put a May return to the majors in question. Ryu's timetable should start to take shape once he ramps up closer to a rehab assignment.

Ryu (shoulder) will toss a 20-to-25 pitch bullpen session Tuesday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ryu was slated to throw a bullpen session on Saturday, April 16, but a groin strain pushed back the clear step in his recovery effort. With the ailment presumably behind him, he'll move onward as he continues to rehab from last May's season-ending shoulder surgery.

Ryu (shoulder) has a groin strain and will not be able to throw his scheduled bullpen session Saturday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The shoulder injury he is attempting to rehab is still the top concern for Ryu, but a groin strain popping up in the rehab process certainly clouds any previously estimated timetables. He is 11 months out from shoulder surgery and as his timetable continues to be pushed back (he was originally scheduled to be ready for the start of spring training), it's hard for fantasy owners to realistically bank on any significant number of innings from him in the foreseeable future.

Ryu (shoulder) will throw a simulated game Thursday in Arizona, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles News Group reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The sim game, which will consist of two 20-pitch innings, will be Ryu's first since undergoing shoulder surgery last May. He may need a couple live sessions before heading out on what is expected to be lengthy minor league rehab assignment. The Dodgers are hoping to have Ryu back in the major league rotation sometime in May.

Ryu (shoulder) will throw live batting practice Thursday or Friday, Eric Stephen of SB Nation reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ryu appears to be progressing through his rehab process nicely and is now clear to face live hitters for the first time. This all keeps him on track to return in mid-May.

Ryu (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Ryu is dealing with some shoulder soreness, and was never expected to be ready for Opening Day. Look for the lefty to continue working in extended spring training before attempting a mid-May return.

Ryu (shoulder) will remain in Arizona for extended spring training, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This isn't all that surprising, as the left-hander will not be available to pitch for the Dodgers until mid-May. He'll continue making progress through his rehab program with the hope that he can return to the rotation around that time.

Ryu (shoulder) will toss a bullpen session Wednesday, and if he passes that test, he's scheduled to throw live batting practice next week, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

If Ryu is cleared for the BP session, it's unclear whether he'll complete said throws at the Dodgers' spring facility or in Los Angeles itself. No matter his next step, though, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA relays that Ryu is at the same stage as position players upon their arrival at spring training, which leaves the starter approximately 6-7 weeks from his season debut. Knowing that, the best-case scenario for his return appears to be the second week of May.

Ryu (shoulder) threw another bullpen session Wednesday and reported his best velocity since last year's shoulder surgery, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Encouraging results, but Ryu is still a long way from facing hitters. Mid-May remains his best-case scenario for a return to the hill.
