The latest injury to strike the Dodgers is literally a pain in the rear.

A strained right buttock muscle forced starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu to make a sixth-inning departure from the Dodgers’ 3-2 defeat to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night at Turner Field.

While Ryu said he didn’t think the injury was serious, he acknowledged he didn’t know if he could take his next turn in the rotation.

Ryu will visit with team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Thursday night, after the Dodgers return home from their four-game series in Atlanta. An MRI is planned.

Ryu allowed three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday as Los Angeles fell to Atlanta 3-2. But the Dodgers still boast a five-game lead over the second-place Giants in the National League West.

Ryu has a 3.28 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 122/27 K/BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings (23 starts) this season.

    Dangit… Hope “Monster” Ryu for a well fast recovery… Pretty sure the MBC guys in South Korea hopes so too.

    Is Hyun-Jin Ryu Korean for Carl Pavano?

      Hell no.

        I’m not saying he’s injury prone. It’s just Pavano also had injured buttocks

    Man, that Puig character is a pain in everyone’s ass.

    Either that or he had a kimchee blowout. I’ve had a couple of those myself.
