Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu was removed in the second inning of Monday’s start in St. Louis against the Cardinals with a strained left groin, SportsNetLA’s Alanna Rizzo reports. Ryu recorded five outs, yielding a pair of runs on two hits and a walk with one strikeout.

Injuries were the big concern for the Dodgers’ starting rotation entering the season. Ryu could join fellow rotation mates Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill on the injured list. The Dodgers should pass along more information on Ryu’s status later tonight or on Tuesday.

Ryu, 32, pitched well in his first two starts of the season, limiting the opposition to three runs on 10 hits with no walks and 13 strikeouts over 13 innings.

NEW YORK – Major League Baseball has sold its remaining share of a streaming service technology company to the Walt Disney Co. for $900 million.

The sale was disclosed Tuesday in Walt Disney Co.’s annual filing report through the SEC. MLB received the $900 million in exchange for the 15% stake it still had in a company called BAMTech, which originally started as MLB Advanced Media in 2000.

The technology helped MLB become a leader in sports streaming in the 2000s.

Walt Disney Co. has been buying chunks of BAMTech for the past five years and now owns 100% of the company. The National Hockey League sold its 10% share of BAMTech to Walt Disney Co. for a reported $350 million in 2021.
