Dodgers Injury Update: Hyun-Jin Ryu on track to pitch in NLDS

By on 9/27/2014 02:30:00 PM

Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu has not pitched in a game since September 12 because of inflammation in his left shoulder. However, if he continues to progress through his rehab process at his current pace, then he should find himself pitching in the NLDS, likely in Game 3, says Ken Gurnick of

According to Gurnick, Ryu threw a light bullpen session Friday and reported no issues or discomfort. He will pitch a full bullpen session Sunday, and if that session turns out well, then a simulated game will follow, putting the lefty on track to make the postseason roster.

A mid-week simulated game would give Ryu enough time both before then and afterward to rest his arm and prepare for a potential Game 3 start on Monday, October 6. That situation would allow manager Don Mattingly to have his top three starters (Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke) in their correct rotation order for the NLDS, which begins on Friday, October 3.

Ryu will finish the regular season with a record of 14-7, 3.38 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 4.79 K/BB ratio.
