Yesterday, we learned that Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu‘s latest bullpen session went well, which led us to believe that the lefty would make a return sometime soon. Now, we have official word. Via MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick, Ryu will start on Wednesday in New York against the Mets.
Ryu had a clunker of a start against the Rockies on April 27, allowing six runs (five earned) in five innings. He landed on the disabled list the next day with inflammation in his left elbow. Overall, Ryu had been pitching well for the Dodgers, carrying a 3.00 ERA with a 31/11 K/BB ratio in 39 innings.
