HYUN-JIN RYU RUMORS & GOSSIP
This is a little weird. Kinda funny. But mostly weird. I had to share.
The slow-mo slurp is the best.
Hyun-Jin Ryu's commercial for some Korean noodles:
Ryu seems like a really funny dude with a great sense of humor. So glad he is a Dodger!

Hyun-Jin Ryu’s start in Game 3 of the National League
Division Series wasn’t a complete and total failure, and he was lucky the
offense (and Chris Capuano) bailed him out. But a weakness of his was exploited
Ryu, somewhat surprisingly, struggles against left-handed
hitters. Here are his platoon splits for his first big league season:
No one will admit to anything, but the Los Angeles Dodgers have been paying extra close attention to Hyun-Jin Ryu's bullpen sessions. In fact, Ryu throwing a bullpen session at all should be a red flag. He normally doesn't do that. Coupled with Don Mattingly and the team's surgeon looking on, there's a chance that Ryu is not 100 percent.

LOS ANGELES The Dodgers have every confidence that Hyun-Jin Ryu will walk to the mound Sunday afternoon at Dodger Stadium and pitch with the same calm and confidence he did all season.
But there might also be a little concern, if only because of a bullpen session Ryu had earlier this week in front of the watchful eyes of the team doctor, the head of their medical services staff...
Hyun Jin Ryu has been consistently solid all year long for the Dodgers, and there been little reason to doubt him. After a bit of a lull in the middle of the season, he bounced back to finish strong and alleviated any worries of a tiring arm or any other issues. As such, I felt confident going into Game 3 of the 2013 NLDS despite his matchup against arguably the Braves‘ best pitcher...
Topsy-turvy may be the best way to sum up the Dodgers season to this point.
Pitcher Hyun-Jin Ru has done well but the Dodgers seem to be in need of a “fresh,” everyday impact player.
You know things are strange when the Dodger pitcher with the most wins isn’t named Kershaw. Hyun-Jin Ryu has six wins to Kershaw’s five. Anomaly #2 can be found in the batting stats showing...
Hyun-Jin Ryu enjoys interacting with fans.
Even those in the stands.
Ryu, who met fellow Korean Psy earlier in May and gave the pop star his Dodgers jersey, plays catch with a young fan, with the name Deuce on his jersey, for about five minutes at a recent Dodgers game.
Deuce has a cannon. Ryu is pretty good, too.
Set your cute set phasers to stun.
Hyun Jin Ryu made his Dodgers and MLB debut yesterday, and in the bottom of the six inning he came to bat and did … well … that.
Some people on Twitter didn’t take too kindly to him dogging it, and the fans at the field booed him for it, but most importantly, the dugout didn’t seem to appreciate it, including Don Mattingly.
One message that Ryu figures to receive in the next...
Hyun-Jin Ryu pitched at Camelback Ranch on Sunday -- the last day of my spring training trip. I was lucky enough to see him on that day.
While it started off rough, he ended up throwing a gem (by spring training standards).
Ryu gave up a run on three hits in the first inning, with little help from his defense. Luckily for Ryu, Adrian Gonzalez hit a 3-run home run in the first...

Hyun-Jin Ryu made his Dodgers' debut on Sunday at Camelback Ranch. He threw one inning, allowed one hit and struck out Gordon Beckham on a changeup low and away -- Ryu's signature pitch.
The hit he allowed was a triple to Dewayne Wise on a hanging curveball. Sandy Koufax worked with Ryu in a bullpen session a few days ago, but apparently Ryu hasn't yet mastered...
