But Ryu threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session, reported no pain and is now scheduled to start the nationally televised opener.
“He had a great camp,” said Manager
Ryu doesn't like to have bullpen sessions between starts, but needed to test the toe. Ryu said he threw all his pitches in the brief session.
If Kershaw is still unavailable by then, Ryu could also pitch the home opener. For now, the Dodgers are simply counting on him against the Padres.
"He's good to go Sunday," Mattingly said. "He's totally comfortable. We're totally comfortable."
