Dodgers’ Ryu Removed from Start with Injury

The 27-year-old has become one of the best number three starters in baseball




    You knew something was wrong when a pitcher as accurate as Hyun-Jin Ryu walked strikeout maven B.J. Upton.

    After missing with a slider to Upton during Wednesday’s start against the Braves, Ryu called out the training staff, grabbed his right leg and knelt down in pain.

    [LA] Paul McCartney Returns to Perform at Dodger Stadium
    Beatles legend Paul McCartney was set to perform at Dodger Stadium again for the first time since 1966. An estimated 50,000 fans were expected. Kate Larsen reports from Chavez Ravine for the NBC4 News at 6 on Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014. (Published Sunday, Aug. 10, 2014)

    Will the NFL be in LA within the next 5 years? Is LA going to host the Olympics again? Who should get the next statue in front of Staples Center?

    To add insult to injury, he took the loss in a 3-2 Dodgers defeat.

    The good news for the club is the injury is not disabled list worthy, because they can’t afford to lose Ryu. Other than ace Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers rotation has become a bit of a mess lately.

    Zack Greinke has lost four of his last six decisions, Dan Haren’s ERA has ballooned to 4.50, Josh Beckett is out with a bum hip.

    With another Dodger pitcher nursing an injury, the move by General Manager Ned Colletti to pick up two band-aids in the form of Kevin Correa and Roberto Hernandez seems like a smart move right about now.
