Hyun-Jin Ryu threw Tuesday for the first time since being shut down with a sore shoulder, which is nice. Though he did throw like a father would to his son on the front lawn.
He’s been through all this before, of course, and if further moves to the disabled list seem inevitable for an injury that is not showing up on an MRI exam, the only thing the Dodgers know for certain is they will need a fifth starter by April 14.
Starting pitching depth is going to be a huge key this season for the Dodgers, with their rotation filled with health risks. This makes looking at the rotation of their new triple-A team -- the Oklahoma City Dodgers -- all the more significant.
