Dodgers left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu will begin the season on the disabled list

Last week Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu left camp and went back to Los Angeles to have his sore shoulder examined and the news is relatively good. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that no structural damage was found.

However, he’ll be shut down for at least 2-3 weeks and will begin the season on the disabled list. Joe Wieland seems like the best bet to take his place in the rotation early on.

Ryu has been very good since signing with the Dodgers in 2013, throwing 344 innings with a 3.17 ERA and 293/78 K/BB ratio.
