2015 Dodgers prospects: 2018 Pitching Staff

This is the penultimate piece in my 2015 Dodgers prospects series. I look at how I think the 2018 pitching staff could shape up. There are a few Dodger pitching prospects who could crack the 2018 pitching staff, but if there is a big hole that can be filled with a big signing (specifically in the rotation), they’ll probably go that route. But having some young studs in the minors...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Hyun-Jin Ryu injury update

The Los Angeles Dodgers are faced with another injury during spring training. One of their starting pitchers, Hyun-Jin Ryu, had an MRI after feeling a tightening in his mid back. After Tuesday’s bullpen session, Ryu mentioned he was feeling discomfort from tightness in his back. Ryu was held out of workouts for a second day due to the same pain. Although he was taken out of workouts...

Don’t Judge The Health Of The Dodger Rotation On Disabled List Trips

What’s the biggest potential weakness of the 2015 Dodgers? Everyone who just said “right-handed power” can go sit in the corner. Stop. Just stop it. That’s not it. That doesn’t matter. It is, probably without a ton of controversy, starting rotation depth. We’ve been over this a bunch of times. All five members of the 2015 rotation — Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun...

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 […]

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

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...
