Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu donates $100K to South Korea ferry rescue effort

Hyun-Jin Ryu has donated $100 thousand dollars to the South Korea ferry rescue effort, according to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The ferry accident has claimed the lives of at least 29 and there are 270 more reported missing. The South Korean native came to the dodgers last season and was one of the top rookie pitchers in the National League with a 14-8 record with a 3.00 earned run...

Ryu Shuts Down SF Offense In Giants’ 2-1 Loss

The San Francisco Giants took the series but couldn’t sweep their Southern California rivals on Thursday afternoon as they fell to the Dodgers 2-1 at AT&T Park. The Giants sent ace Madison Bumgarner to the hill, and the starter had trouble with the strikezone on Thursday afternoon. While he struck out six through 4.1 innings, he also walked three and struggled to hide his frustration...

Hyun-Jin Ryu stays perfect on the road in Dodgers' 2-1 victory

Next time Hyun-Jin Ryu starts at home, disguise Dodger Stadium. Put a giant Coke bottle beyond left field. Add a pool in center. Slap Petco Park signs in the dugout or something. Anything to make Ryu believe he’s pitching on the road, where currently he is invincible. Ryu was at it again Thursday afternoon, holding the Giants scoreless in his seven innings to help the Dodgers...

Dodgers 2, Giants 1: Exhale

In between Yasiel Puig doing all the things that make him great – and don’t forget the out-of-nowhere catch that may have saved a run in the eighth inning – there was actually a baseball game today. I know! And once again, Hyun-jin Ryu is making people notice that the Dodgers have more than two outstanding starting pitchers. Ryu shut out the Giants on 112 pitches over seven...

Dodgers @ Giants April 17, 2014: No Hanley, And Bad History For Ryu

The Dodgers are looking to salvage this series — much like the last series against the Giants — in the final game of a 3-game set. They turn to Hyun-jin Ryu to be the “stopper.” Normally, I’d feel pretty confident (even going up against Madison Bumgarner), but for whatever reason, Ryu struggles against San Francisco. In six career outings — including the disastrous April...

Hyun-jin Ryu Hits Yasiel Puig In The Head With Bat…..On Purpose

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was the recipient of a simple but valuable life lesson courtesy of pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu. The Japanese hurler demonstrated to the flamboyant Puig that he would not shy away from using a bat as self defense in future playful attacks. Plain and simple, class dismissed!

That’s … weird: Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu engage in dugout tickle fight (video)

Before the Los Angeles Dodgers squared off against the rival Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, teammates Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu tried to keep the mood loosey-goosey in the dugout by engaging in a tickle fight, of all things. It’s rare to see two grown ass men tickle each other, but I suppose that’s what makes […] The post That’s … weird: Yasiel Puig, Hyun-Jin Ryu engage...

World’s Worst Person Yasiel Puig Picked A (Tickle) Fight With Hyun-Jin Ryu

Getty Image The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 8-6 yesterday on the powerful and hot bats of Matt Kemp and Adrian Gonzalez, but the effort didn’t come without the same old nonsense from troublemaker Yasiel Puig. The Cuban-born player continued to show that he has as little class as a Kardashian taking selfies with your President Obama at a White House music...

GIF: Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu Get in to Tickle Fight Prior to Sunday's Game

There has been a lot said about the young outfielder of the Los Angeles Dodgers; mostly that along with having a cannon of an arm and a dangerous bat he is immature as can be. When it comes to being late to games and getting in trouble with the law for doing stupid things that is true. However, when it comes to getting in a tickle fight with another player (Hyun-Jin Ryu) I'd...

Hyun-Jin Ryu, Adrian Gonzalez shine in Dodgers’ victory versus Diamondbacks

Adrian Gonzalez knew the hits were bound to come. Friday night, they did. Gonzalez drove in five runs in a 6-0 victory over the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks, including two on a home run in the first inning. With three hits, Gonzalez raised his average from .189 to .244. “I heard people talk about my average, but I knew it wasn’t something to focus on because it wasn...

Dodger Rotation Suddenly An Open Question

Last year, you may remember, the Dodgers used nine different starting pitchers in their first 23 games. Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-jin Ryu, Zack Greinke, and Josh Beckett were the original foursome, joined by Chad Billingsley the second time through. From there, it was something like a comedy of errors. Carlos Quentin broke Greinke, so Chris Capuano become starter No. 6, but immediately...

Giants Continue with Two-Out Hits, Ruin Dodgers Opening Day

It didn’t take long for the wheels to fall off for the Dodgers in their home opener on Friday. The Giants tacked on eight two-out runs early, their bullpen kept them in the game, and San Francisco captured an 8-4 win over the rival Los Angeles. It looked as if Hyun-Jin Ryu would have an easy top of the first when Pablo Sandoval worked a two-out walk. Buster Posey continued to...

Giants 8, Dodgers 4: At Least Matt Kemp Didn’t Break

There’s no way around this, really. After a stellar first two starts, Hyun-jin Ryu was atrocious today, giving up six runs in the first and two more in the second before finally stepping aside. He walked three. He gave up eight hits. At no point did he look like the Ryu who had been so good in San Diego and Australia. Of course, he didn’t get a lot of help, either. Matt Kemp...

Arsenal Analysis: Dodgers Worst Pitches Of 2013

For a pitch to qualify for these rankings, I used a 200-pitch minimum for starters and a 50-pitch minimum for relievers. The metric used to measure pitch effectiveness is True Average...
