After being scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday due to a sore left foot, Hyun-Jin Ryu has been cleared to start tomorrow night against the Braves.

Ryu injured the foot when he kicked a comebacker during his two-hit shutout against the Angels on May 28, but he managed to avoid a stint on the disabled list. While the Korean left-hander doesn’t usually throw bullpen sessions between starts, but Bill Plunkett of the Orange County-Register reports that he made it through side sessions on Monday and Wednesday without incident. Dodgers manager Dom Mattingly said he’s now back to “100 percent.”

Ryu has been one of the National League’s better pitchers in his first year stateside, posting a 2.89 ERA and 67/22 K/BB ratio in 71 1/3 innings over 11 starts. The 26-year-old has thrown six innings or more in 10 of his starts and has allowed three runs or fewer in nine of them.
