The Los Angeles Dodgers finished the 2014 regular season with a record of 94-68 and open the NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night. Clayton Kershaw goes for the Dodgers against Adam Wainwright. Zack Greinke should get the ball in the second game of the series. Hyun-jin Ryu is set for a simulated game on Wednesday and could start in the third game if he continues to progress.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on September 27 that Ryu, who has not pitched in a game since September 12 because of inflammation in his left shoulder, could be ready to pitch in the NLDS, barring any setbacks.

An update on Ryu, as reported by Michael Lananan of, is that he will throw a 45-pitch simulated game on Wednesday at Dodger Stadium.. Ryu tries to return for Game 3 of the series on Monday as he tries to battle back from left shoulder inflammation that has sidelined him twice this season.

Ryu is confident he can return and pitch well.
"It helps to know that both times I came back in the regular season, I had good games. I'm encouraged by that, and I see it being no different this time around."
Ryu finished his second Major League season with a record of 14-7 and a 3.38 ERA in 26 starts. He allowed 152 hits, walked 29 and struck out 139 in 152 innings. Ryu has a career record of 28-15 with a 3.17 ERA in 56 games.
