The strained right gluteus muscle that has kept left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu on the disabled list is healing well enough that he could be back on the mound for the Dodgers on Sunday against the San Diego Padres.

He’s eligible to come off the DL on Friday, but Mattingly already has Dan Haren slated to start that day and Zack Greinke on Saturday. Roberto Hernandez will get the start Sunday if Ryu is pushed back another day.

He was placed on the retroactive disabled list August 14th after injuring himself against the Atlanta Braves

Multiple reports say Ryu’s throwing session Tuesday went well in Arizona and he’s expected to throw a simulated game Wednesday.

Ryu talked with reporters following his bullpen.

“Mostly the rehab is just a lot of resting. The muscle just needed to heal. So, I kept doing upper body workouts and I just tried to do as much as I can in the lower body without giving the hip too much strain,” Ryu said through his interpreter.

As part of the Dodgers big three in the starting rotation along with Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, Ryu is 13-6 on the season with a 3.28 ERA and 1.19 WHIP.
