Sep. 23 8:53 PM PT9:53 PM MT10:53 PM CT11:53 PM ET23:53 ET3:53 GMT11:53 8:53 PM MST10:53 PM EST11:23 PM VEN7:53 UAE (+1)10:53 PM CT-Ryu exited Saturday's start against San Francisco in the third inning after being hit in his left forearm by a line drive off the bat of Joe Panik.
Analysis: Ryu may not have lasted much longer anyway, as he pitched five innings or less in four of his last six starts coming in. X-rays did come up negative and the lefty was diagnosed with a contusion. He allowed one run on three hits over 2 1/3 innings before departing.
Sep. 18 8:33 AM PT9:33 AM MT10:33 AM CT11:33 AM ET11:33 ET15:33 GMT23:33 8:33 AM MST10:33 AM EST11:03 AM VEN19:33 UAE10:33 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed three hits and two walks without giving up a run in 4.2 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Washington Nationals 7-1 on Sunday. Ryu struck out five, ending the game with a 3.46 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings but was removed after walking back-to-back batters with two outs in the fifth at 98 pitches.
Sep. 6 10:08 AM PT11:08 AM MT12:08 PM CT1:08 PM ET13:08 ET17:08 GMT1:08 10:08 AM MST12:08 PM EST12:38 PM VEN21:08 UAE12:08 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed one run on three hits and five walks in 6.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-1 on Tuesday. Ryu struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.59 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was still a far better outing than Wednesday at Arizona, when he gave up six runs on eight hits in four innings, ending a run in which he allowed just two earned runs or fewer in eight of nine outings.
Sep. 5 11:01 AM PT12:01 PM MT1:01 PM CT2:01 PM ET14:01 ET18:01 GMT2:01 11:01 AM MST1:01 PM EST1:31 PM VEN22:01 UAE1:01 PM CT-Ryu (5-7, 3.71) allowed a season-worst six runs and eight hits in four innings at Arizona last week.
Analysis: He is 3-3 with a 4.02 ERA in nine career starts against the D-backs.
Aug. 31 12:36 AM PT1:36 AM MT2:36 AM CT3:36 AM ET3:36 ET7:36 GMT15:36 12:36 AM MST2:36 AM EST3:06 AM VEN11:36 UAE2:36 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu fell to 5-7, allowing six runs on eight hits and three walks in 4.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 on Wednesday. Ryu struck out two, ending the game with a 3.71 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu had been a groove heading into this one, going 2-0 with an excellent 1.20 ERA over his previous five starts, but was tagged for three homers to receive his first loss since June 5. Despite his recent success, the Korean lefty rates as a shaky play when he faces the Diamondbacks again next Tuesday.
Aug. 24 5:22 PM PT6:22 PM MT7:22 PM CT8:22 PM ET20:22 ET0:22 GMT8:22 5:22 PM MST7:22 PM EST7:52 PM VEN4:22 UAE (+1)7:22 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 5-6, allowing one run on four hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on Thursday. Ryu struck out two, ending the game with a 3.34 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu is 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA in his last nine starts.
Aug. 19 5:18 PM PT6:18 PM MT7:18 PM CT8:18 PM ET20:18 ET0:18 GMT8:18 5:18 PM MST7:18 PM EST7:48 PM VEN4:18 UAE (+1)7:18 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed three hits and four walks without giving up a run in 5.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Detroit Tigers 3-0 on Saturday. Ryu struck out four, ending the game with a 3.45 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Dave Roberts will have some decisions to make once the Dodgers get all their starters back healthy, though it'll be awfully hard to take Ryu out of the rotation with the way he's pitching. The Korean lefty owns an excellent 2.22 ERA over his last eight starts and has fanned 47 batters in 44 2/3 innings during that time frame.
Aug. 13 10:43 AM PT11:43 AM MT12:43 PM CT1:43 PM ET13:43 ET17:43 GMT1:43 10:43 AM MST12:43 PM EST1:13 PM VEN21:43 UAE12:43 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 6-3 on Saturday. Ryu struck out five, ending the game with a 3.63 ERA and 1.30 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu, who had combined for 14 shutout innings in his previous two starts, was finished after throwing 108 pitches in five innings. It was the seventh consecutive outing in which he's given up no more than three runs.
Aug. 12 9:38 AM PT10:38 AM MT11:38 AM CT12:38 PM ET12:38 ET16:38 GMT0:38 9:38 AM MST11:38 AM EST12:08 PM VEN20:38 UAE11:38 AM CT-Coming off this two best starts of the season, Ryu faces the Padres on Saturday.
Analysis: Ryu (4-6, 3.53) did not allow a run in seven-inning starts against San Francisco and New York, allowing the Mets only one hit. He is 4-1 with a 2.19 ERA in six career starts against the Padres.
Aug. 7 10:12 AM PT11:12 AM MT12:12 PM CT1:12 PM ET13:12 ET17:12 GMT1:12 10:12 AM MST12:12 PM EST12:42 PM VEN21:12 UAE12:12 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 4-6, allowing one hit over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the New York Mets 8-0 on Sunday. Ryu struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.53 ERA and 1.28 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu combined with two relievers on a one-hitter while extending his scoreless streak to 15 innings. It was the second straight game in which he pitched seven innings - he has 15 Ks in that span - after doing so only once through his first 14 outings. Ryu is clearly worth using again even though the Dodgers usually limit the pitch count of the oft-injured left-hander.
July 31 9:29 AM PT10:29 AM MT11:29 AM CT12:29 PM ET12:29 ET16:29 GMT0:29 9:29 AM MST11:29 AM EST11:59 AM VEN20:29 UAE11:29 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed five hits and one walk without giving up a run in 7.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Sunday. Ryu struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.83 ERA and 1.37 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu yet again came away without a win despite another solid showing. The left-hander now has a 2.60 ERA in his last five starts but only one win to show for it. He has been backed by six total runs in his four no-decisions in that stretch. One of those outings came against the Mets, who he will face on Saturday. At home against New York on June 22, Ryu allowed two runs on a pair of homers and three other hits over five innings.
July 25 1:42 PM PT2:42 PM MT3:42 PM CT4:42 PM ET16:42 ET20:42 GMT4:42 1:42 PM MST3:42 PM EST4:12 PM VEN0:42 UAE (+1)3:42 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 5.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Minnesota Twins 6-4 on Monday. Ryu struck out five, ending the game with a 4.17 ERA and 1.42 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu turned in a solid effort in his first start in nearly a month, a good sign for a Dodgers team that's now trying to make do without Clayton Kershaw. The Korean lefty sports a decent 4.38 ERA over his last five starts, though he's lasted beyond five innings just once during that stretch.
July 4 3:44 PM PT4:44 PM MT5:44 PM CT6:44 PM ET18:44 ET22:44 GMT6:44 3:44 PM MST5:44 PM EST6:14 PM VEN2:44 UAE (+1)5:44 PM CT-Ryu (left foot contusion) came off the DL on Monday to start against the Twins.
Analysis: Ryu (3-6, 4.21 ERA) has allowed two runs in each of his last three starts but has failed to last six innings in any of those games. Though he's recorded just one win over his last six starts, the Korean lefty has received two runs or less of support four times during that period.
June 29 10:21 AM PT11:21 AM MT12:21 PM CT1:21 PM ET13:21 ET17:21 GMT1:21 10:21 AM MST12:21 PM EST12:51 PM VEN21:21 UAE12:21 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk in 5.2 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Los Angeles Angels 3-2 on Wednesday. Ryu struck out eight, ending the game with a 4.21 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: A pretty typical outing for Ryu, who's now allowed two runs in each of his last three starts but has failed to last six innings in any of those games. Though he's recorded just one win over his last six starts, the Korean lefty has received two runs or less of support four times during that period.
June 23 8:15 AM PT9:15 AM MT10:15 AM CT11:15 AM ET11:15 ET15:15 GMT23:15 8:15 AM MST10:15 AM EST10:45 AM VEN19:15 UAE10:15 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed two runs on five hits and two walks in 5.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the New York Mets 6-3 on Thursday. Ryu struck out three, ending the game with a 4.30 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu has given up two runs over five innings in each of his last two starts after permitting four runs in each of his previous two. He next takes the ball Tuesday against the Angels, and in his two previous matchups with them, he has yielded just four hits while striking out 11 and walking 1 over 16 scoreless innings.
June 17 5:23 PM PT6:23 PM MT7:23 PM CT8:23 PM ET20:23 ET0:23 GMT8:23 5:23 PM MST7:23 PM EST7:53 PM VEN4:23 UAE (+1)7:23 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 3-6, allowing two runs on eight hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Cincinnati Reds 10-2 on Saturday. Ryu struck out seven, ending the game with a 4.35 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
June 12 8:40 AM PT9:40 AM MT10:40 AM CT11:40 AM ET11:40 ET15:40 GMT23:40 8:40 AM MST10:40 AM EST11:10 AM VEN19:40 UAE10:40 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed four runs on six hits in 4.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Cincinnati Reds 9-7 on Sunday. Ryu struck out five, ending the game with a 4.42 ERA and 1.35 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This is the fourth time in 10 starts this season Ryu has failed to make it through five innings, but the first three came on the road.
June 6 9:54 AM PT10:54 AM MT11:54 AM CT12:54 PM ET12:54 ET16:54 GMT0:54 9:54 AM MST11:54 AM EST12:24 PM VEN20:54 UAE11:54 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu fell to 2-6, allowing four runs on seven hits in 7.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Monday. Ryu struck out four, ending the game with a 4.08 ERA and 1.34 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu, who had a 1.76 ERA and 0.98 WHIP over his previous three starts, lost for the first time since May 11. He makes his next start Sunday against the Reds at Dodger Stadium, and in two career starts vs. Cincinnati at Chavez Ravine, Ryu is 2-0 with a 2.51 ERA and 0.42 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over 14.1 innings.
May 31 7:57 PM PT8:57 PM MT9:57 PM CT10:57 PM ET22:57 ET2:57 GMT10:57 7:57 PM MST9:57 PM EST10:27 PM VEN6:57 UAE (+1)9:57 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu allowed one run on three hits and one walk in 6.0 innings as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 on Wednesday. Ryu struck out four, ending the game with a 3.91 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Making his first start since May 18, Ryu made a case to remain in the rotation and has now yielded just one run over his last 12 1/3 innings. That's hardly a foregone conclusion, though, as Alex Wood may be ready to come off the DL by the time Ryu's next scheduled turn comes around.
May 26 6:29 AM PT7:29 AM MT8:29 AM CT9:29 AM ET9:29 ET13:29 GMT21:29 6:29 AM MST8:29 AM EST8:59 AM VEN17:29 UAE8:29 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu recorded his first save, allowing no runs on two hits in 4.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 7-3 on Thursday. Ryu struck out two, ending the game with a 4.28 ERA and 1.50 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: He became the second Dodger to record a save in his first career relief appearance since Charlie Hough on Aug. 12, 1970, at Pittsburgh. It was Ryu's first relief outing as a pro since 2011 in the Korean Baseball Organization. Ryu, who had left shoulder and elbow surgeries over the last two seasons, was removed from the rotation after a 7-2 win over Miami on May 18. He is 2-5 with a 4.75 ERA this season.
May 19 8:28 AM PT9:28 AM MT10:28 AM CT11:28 AM ET11:28 ET15:28 GMT23:28 8:28 AM MST10:28 AM EST10:58 AM VEN19:28 UAE10:28 AM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 2-5, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk in 5.1 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Miami Marlins 7-2 on Thursday. Ryu struck out three, ending the game with a 4.75 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Lefties are pounding Ryu to the tune of a .348 average and three homers in just 46 at-bats.
May 12 10:15 AM PT11:15 AM MT12:15 PM CT1:15 PM ET13:15 ET17:15 GMT1:15 10:15 AM MST12:15 PM EST12:45 PM VEN21:15 UAE12:15 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu fell to 1-5, allowing 10 runs - five earned - on eight hits and six walks in 4.0 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Colorado Rockies 10-7 on Thursday. Ryu struck out four, ending the game with a 4.99 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: It was a dreadful return from the DL for Ryu, who had missed one turn in the rotation due to a hip contusion. His walks were a career high, and his runs and hits allowed were season highs. Ryu is tied for the major league lead with five losses.
May 1 4:49 PM PT5:49 PM MT6:49 PM CT7:49 PM ET19:49 ET23:49 GMT7:49 4:49 PM MST6:49 PM EST7:19 PM VEN3:49 UAE (+1)6:49 PM CT-Ryu will start against the Rockies on Thursday, coming off the 10-day disabled list after missing one turn in the Dodgers' rotation with a left hip contusion.
Analysis: Ryu suffered a bruise and felt some tightness in his glute while sliding into second base on April 30 against the Phillies.
Apr. 30 6:37 PM PT7:37 PM MT8:37 PM CT9:37 PM ET21:37 ET1:37 GMT9:37 6:37 PM MST8:37 PM EST9:07 PM VEN5:37 UAE (+1)8:37 PM CT-Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 1-4, allowing one run on three hits and three walks in 5.1 innings, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 on Sunday. Ryu struck out nine, ending the game with a 4.05 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Ryu earned his first win since Aug. 31, 2014. The veteran left-hander made only one start last season and had elbow surgery last September.
Apr. 25 9:49 AM PT10:49 AM MT11:49 AM CT12:49 PM ET12:49 ET16:49 GMT0:49 9:49 AM MST11:49 AM EST12:19 PM VEN20:49 UAE11:49 AM CT-Ryu limited the Giants to one run and five hits in six innings Monday as he walked one and struck out three, but he took the loss as the Dodgers fell 2-1.
Analysis: Ryu didn't allow a homer after serving up six through his first three starts. "It was the best outing I had since the surgery," said Ryu, who missed most of the last two seasons due to labrum and elbow procedures. "I really wanted to make sure that they didn't get extra bases or a home run off me, because that's been one of my problems this season." Ryu is 0-6 in seven starts since his last victory on Aug. 31, 2014.
Apr. 19 1:04 PM PT2:04 PM MT3:04 PM CT4:04 PM ET16:04 ET20:04 GMT4:04 1:04 PM MST3:04 PM EST3:34 PM VEN0:04 UAE (+1)3:04 PM CT-Ryu struck out seven Rockies over six innings in Tuesday's start, but served up three homers that accounted for four runs and was dealt the loss.
Analysis: The oft-injured lefty has really been hurt by the long ball in his return from a long absence, as he's now given up six homers in 15 1/3 innings while losing all three of his 2017 starts. Ryu will take another stab at a first victory since August 2014 when he meets the Giants at AT&T Park on Monday.
Apr. 8 8:59 AM PT9:59 AM MT10:59 AM CT11:59 AM ET11:59 ET15:59 GMT23:59 8:59 AM MST10:59 AM EST11:29 AM VEN19:59 UAE10:59 AM CT-Ryu allowed two runs and six hits over 4 2/3 innings in Friday's 2-1 loss to Colorado.
Analysis: Ryu (0-1) came up short in his quest to win for the first time since Aug. 31, 2014. The Dodgers left-hander made just one start last season, on July 7, between stints on the DL because of left shoulder surgery and left elbow tendinitis.
Mar. 11 4:22 PM PT5:22 PM MT6:22 PM CT7:22 PM ET19:22 ET0:22 GMT8:22 5:22 PM MST7:22 PM EST7:52 PM VEN4:22 UAE (+1)6:22 PM CT-Ryu struck out two over two scoreless innings in an encouraging spring debut.
Analysis: The Korean left-hander is attempting to make his way back from several arm injuries that have limited him to just one appearance over the past two seasons. While Saturday's outing is certainly a positive sign, Ryu still isn't assured a rotation spot on a deep Dodgers' pitching staff.
