We’ve entered the portion of spring training where all that can really happen is dudes getting hurt. The latest: Hyun-Jin Ryu. Who the Dodgers just announced will be shut down with inflammation in his shoulder.
Ryu’s last outing was noticeable for his markedly decreased velocity, after which he experienced shoulder tightness. You’ll also recall that he was shut down for a spell in September last season due to similar issues. He was able to come back for the playoffs then. Here’s hoping he can do the same for the regular season now.
