Hyun-Jin Ryu SP LAD 17 Hrs

Ryu (glute) threw another bullpen session Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

A Grade 1-2 glute strain forced Ryu onto the DL last week, but he seems to be progressing nicely, having now thrown bullpen sessions on back-to-back days. While he's not throwing with maximum effort just yet, Ryu appears on track to return shortly after he's eligible Aug. 29.

Ryu (leg) threw off the mound in the bullpen Thursday, Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports.

Ryu remains on track to return roughly by the end of the month, as expected. It doesn't sound like he'll require a rehab assignment, so get ready to deploy the lefty as soon as he's back in action.

Ryu (leg) is not expected to need a minor league rehab assignment, leaving him on target for a return at the end of the month, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Ryu played catch before Tuesday's game to test his pulled glute muscle, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

There has been no official timetable disclosed, but the fact that he has started a throwing program, and that the injury is not an arm or a shoulder opens up the door for a return when he's eligible at the end of August.

Ryu (glute) is headed to the 15-day DL, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Manager Don Mattingly had previously indicated that Ryu would likely miss one start as a result of the glute injury, but he'll miss at least two turns after an MRI revealed a Grade 1-2 strain. The team will re-evaluate Ryu in the coming days, with a timetable likely to be disclosed shortly thereafter. Kevin Correia will take Ryu's spot in the rotation starting Tuesday.

Ryu will have an MRI on his injured glute muscle on Friday, the Dodgers' official site reports.

With an off-day on Monday, the Dodgers could simply skip Ryu's start or go with Kevin Correia on Tuesday. Either way, Ryu will miss at least one start pending the MRI results.

Ryu (leg) seems likely to miss his next scheduled start, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ryu left Wednesday's start in the sixth inning with a right glute strain, and is expected to undergo further testing Friday. He seemed to be limping around a bit in the clubhouse Thursday, however, so the team is preparing to have to replace him for his next turn. This doesn't necessarily mean he'll hit the disabled list, but Friday's examination should reveal a more distinct timetable.

Ryu (leg) will either undergo an MRI or visit Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Friday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

The fact that the Dodgers will send Ryu for further evaluation, but wait until Friday to do so, leaves his status for his next start squarely in doubt. The Dodgers should have a better feel for Ryu's chances of making his next start after he is examined Friday.

Ryu left Wednesday's game against the Braves in the sixth inning with a right gluteus muscle strain.

The Dodgers list Ryu as day-to-day, but he may not be in the clear to make his next rotation turn until he completes his between-starts bullpen session. Prior to exiting, Ryu gave up three runs on six hits and two walks while fanning seven over 5.2 innings.

Ryu left Wednesday's game against the Braves with an apparent leg injury, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ryu induced groundouts from Chris Johnson and Andrelton Simmons to begin the sixth inning, but he was unable to complete the frame due to the injury. It's too early to speculate about Ryu's availability for his next start, but the Dodgers figure to provide an update before the end of the game.
