Yesterday, we learned that Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu’s latest bullpen session went well, which led us to believe that the lefty would make a return sometime soon. Now, we have official word. Via MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick, Ryu will start on Wednesday in New York against the Mets.
Ryu had a clunker of a start against the Rockies on April 27, allowing six runs (five earned) in five innings. He landed on the disabled list the next day with inflammation in his left elbow. Overall, Ryu had been pitching well for the Dodgers, carrying a 3.00 ERA with a 31/11 K/BB ratio in 39 innings.
Red Sox center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. scaled the center field fence to rob Padres shortstop Luis Urías of a solo home run in the fourth inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Urías was trying to take advantage of a 0-1 slider from Ryan Brasier. Had Bradley not made the grab, the Padres’ lead would have been extended to 4-1.
Unfortunately for the Red Sox, they weren’t able to take advantage of Bradley’s effort, dropping Sunday’s contest 3-1. They still won the series against the Padres, however. The Sox will continue their road trip for two games against the Rockies followed by three versus the Angels.
