From Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times:

Hyun-Jin Ryu is scheduled to make his major league debut April 2 in the Dodgers’ second game of the regular season.

The Dodgers had the choice of starting either Ryu or Chad Billingsley on that day. But Billingsley’s pitching schedule has been altered, ruling him out …

That April 2 start against the Giants was originally Zack Greinke‘s, but his schedule was also altered.

The Dodgers have committed a total of $61.74 million to Ryu between the $25.74 million posting fee and his six-year, $36 million major league contract. His spring got off to a sluggish start because of conditioning issues, but the 26-year-old left-hander has looked sharp in recent Cactus League outings. Ryu went seven innings on Saturday against the White Sox, allowing two runs on one hit while striking out five.

Ryu posted a 1.82 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 187/45 K/BB ratio in 199 2/3 innings last year in Korea.

      I think maybe a face only a well paid hooker could love.
