Ryu gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings in a no-decision against the Mets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He gave up a solo homer to Curtis Granderson to begin the game and Travis d'Arnaud later hit one out -- home runs No. 13 and 14 allowed by Ryu this season -- but that was the extent of the damage against the lefty. His overall numbers don't look particularly good, and he's not a lock to stick in the rotation long term, but Ryu will have some appeal in deeper formats next week with a matchup against the Angels on tap.

Ryu's next start has been moved up to Thursday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Ryu and Alex Wood are swapping positions so Wood can face the first place Rockies on Friday. Ryu has just a 4.35 ERA and 1.40 WHIP this season, and he has thrown just one quality start in his past eight outings.

Ryu (3-6) held the Reds to two runs on eight hits while striking out seven in a 10-2 win Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw danced around 10 baserunners to escape with a solid pitching line and his third win of the season. Ryu did a good job of staying away from the heart of the plate after giving up four home runs over his previous two starts. With the Dodgers deploying a six-man rotation, the 30-year-old's next outing won't come until next Friday against the Rockies. Luckily for his fantasy owners, the game comes at home and not at Coors Field, keeping him in the conversation as a viable option in deeper formats.

Ryu only lasted four innings Sunday, giving up four runs on six hits while striking out five in a 9-7 win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw has now turned in two four-run outings after looking sharp in his previous two starts. Despite appearing to be healthy, Ryu has been far more homer-prone (1.9 HR/9) this go around compared to his first two successful seasons in the majors. It would be best to only deploy the 30-year-old in deep formats or as a streamer in favorable matchups. That said, his next start comes against these same Reds in Cincinnati on Saturday.

Ryu will start Sunday's game against the Reds, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ryu's recent performance won him another turn in the rotation, and manager Dave Roberts opted to deploy him Sunday opposite Cincinnati starter Tim Adleman. The left-hander isn't guaranteed a spot in the rotation beyond Sunday, so he'll likely need to perform well in order to keep Kenta Maeda in the bullpen.

Manager Dave Roberts said following Monday's game that Ryu has earned another start, the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The skipper did not say when Ryu would start next, but Ryu will indeed get another opportunity in the rotation even with the impeding return of Alex Wood (shoulder). While Ryu mostly struggled throughout the first six weeks of the season, he's rebounded with seven earned runs allowed in his last four appearances (22.1 innings). If he fares well in his next outing, perhaps he will push Kenta Maeda to the bullpen.

Ryu (2-6) pitched seven innings, allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out four in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Ryu logged 21 of 29 first-pitch strikes, while filling up the zone on 73 percent of his pitches Monday. He caught a little too much at times, though, and the NL's best team made him pay by scattering a handful of runs across the scoreboard as the night wore on. Overall, it was an admirable effort for the 30-year-old who's likely headed back to the bullpen with the impending return of Travis Wood (shoulder).

Manager Dave Roberts said whether Ryu starts again or moves back to the bullpen depends on Alex Wood's (shoulder) health, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ryu tossed six innings of one-run ball in his spot start for Alex Wood on Wednesday, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out four. Despite his solid outing, he could be headed back to the bullpen if Alex Wood is ready to return from the disabled list when eligible Monday.

Manager Dave Roberts confirmed Ryu will make a spot start Wednesday against the Cardinals, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Alex Wood set to miss his next turn in the rotation while on the disabled list, the Dodgers will turn to Ryu to start in his place Wednesday. The 30-year-old has already started seven games for the Dodgers this season, posting a 4.75 ERA and 36:15 K:BB across 36 innings of work. Given Wood is only expected to miss one start, Ryu's performance Wednesday could determine whether he is shifted back to the bullpen or kept stretched out as a starter -- possibly in the minors.

Manager Dave Roberts said Ryu is the frontrunner to make a spot start Wednesday against the Cardinals, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Alex Wood expected to miss his next start while on the disabled list, Ryu seems to be the likely option to make a spot start in his place. The 30-year-old started seven games for the Dodgers this season before being ousted from the rotation last week, compiling a 4.75 ERA and 36:15 K:BB across 36 innings. It appears the only way Ryu won't start Wednesday is if he's used in relief before then. Given Wood is only supposed to miss one start while on the DL, it's unclear if the Dodgers will shift Ryu back to the bullpen after Wednesday or keep him stretched out as a starter -- possibly in the minors.
