HYUN-JIN RYU NEWS

Player Profile #106: Hyun-jin Ryu | SP | LAD

Despite missing a half-dozen starts with a sore shoulder, which limited him to just 152 innings with an ERA that was 38 points higher that his seemingly stellar rookie season, I was very impressed with Hyun-jin Ryu last season. His strikeout and walk rates both improved, and his SIERA fell from 3.60 to 3.17. The soon-to-be 28-year-old was a better pitcher during his sophomore season...

Hyun-Jin Ryu: Quietly Awesome

Hyun-Jin Ryu isn’t the best Dodger starter, because Clayton Kershaw exists. He’s not the second-best Dodger starter, because Zack Greinke exists. If you can’t even make a case for being one of the two best starters on your own team, it’s going to be very difficult to make the case that you’re one of the […]

A Note On Starting Pitcher Depth

The Dodgers will need starting pitchers beyond their current rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, and Brett Anderson. All teams need more than that (there’s no such thing as a number five starter, as Baseball Prospectus likes to say) and the Dodgers have more health questions than most. Anderson hasn’t thrown more than 50 innings since 2011...

Hyun Jin Ryu’s Ottogi Noodle commercial showcases plus-plus mastication

Hyun Jin Ryu did another glorious commercial for Ottogi Noodle & Jin Ramen. Granted, nothing will quite top the sheer amazingness of the last one in all its fake teammate glory, but this did have its moments. My favorite is the capture above, because you can see his smirk as he thinks to himself, “My god, this is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever done in my life. Oh well...

Hyun-Jin Ryu continues to dominate the offseason

Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu is back to his old offseason tricks, beating the world in a decathlon it doesn't know it's participating in. Last year he rocked us with his vocal fortitude and noodle slurpability. This year, it's rope jumping. Ryu recently went on a Korean variety show and displayed his raw talents while laughing at those who struggled. I can only imagine that in the...

Get To Know This Year’s Foreign Imports: Korea

Prior to 2013, the Dodgers went out and got themselves Korean lefty Hyun-jin Ryu, and you might say that’s worked out really, really well. Despite the initial uncertainty from some corners of the baseball world — totally understandable for a player making the jump from the other side of the planet to the big leagues, of course — Ryu has been just fantastic for the Dodgers...

Hyun-Jin Ryu shares his Jin Ramen with fake Dodgers teammates

As you should know by now, my Twitter profile picture is of fake Clayton Kershaw, the one who took over for him in the seventh inning of his NLDS starts this year (sorry, I had to). As you should also know by now, that image comes from a glorious Hyun-Jin Ryu commercial out of Korea for Ottogi Noodle/Jin Ramen, which we first saw via TBLA earlier this month, and now Soon Sports has...

Mailbag #11: Playoff Rotation, Mattingly’s Effect, Front Office, Joc Concerns

Greg: What would the playoff rotation be? This question still totally depends on Hyun Jin Ryu‘s health. Assuming Ryu is healthy and that the Dodgers win the division, they should have everybody rested for the NLDS on Oct. 3. That means a rotation of Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun Jin Ryu, and Dan Haren. I honestly cannot see them playing match-ups with the rotation order...

Friday night may have been the worst night of the season for the Los Angeles Dodgers. It wasn’t losing 9-0 to the San Francisco Giants in game one of their three game series.

A Blowout Is Still Just One Loss, But Dodgers Can’t Withstand Absence Of Ryu
