Hyun-Jin Ryu to return to Dodgers rotation Wednesday

Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, on disabled list since April 28, is set to start Wednesday against Mets

Hyun-Jin Ryu is scheduled to start Wednesday for the Dodgers against the New York Mets at Citi Field, Manager Don Mattingly said.

The left-hander has been on the disabled list since April 28 because of inflammation in his throwing shoulder.

He threw a bullpen session Tuesday and a four-inning simulated game Friday.

With Ryu returning to the rotation, veteran left-hander Paul Maholm will move to the bullpen.

In seven starts, Maholm is 1-7 with a 5.50 earned-run average.

Ryu has also made seven starts and is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA.
