Hyun Jin Ryu
SP - TOR - IL10
The Toronto Blue Jays placed pitcher Hyun Jin Ryu (neck) on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a neck strain.
Ryu woke up with neck soreness Saturday morning following Friday’s start. “It looks like it’s a mild strain,” said Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins. “So we just decided not to push through at this point and take the opportunity to have it get completely out of there.” He has struggled recently, surrendering 12 earned runs over his last two starts. Overall, the southpaw owns a 4.34 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 133 strikeouts over 159 2/3 innings in 2021. Ryu is eligible to come off the injured list on September 28. Ross Stripling is expected to be used as a spot starter while Ryu is sidelined.
Hyun Jin Ryu allowed five runs on five hits and a walk with two strikeouts in two innings, taking the loss Friday versus Minnesota.
Ryu struggled for the second start in a row and has allowed 12 runs in his last 4 1/3 innings across the two outings. The 34-year-old is now 13-9 on the season with a 4.34 ERA and will look to bounce back in next week's projected start in Tampa Bay
Hyun Jin Ryu allowed seven runs on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts in a no-decision in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus Baltimore.
Ryu has been inconsistent of late as allowed seven runs in three of his last seven starts but also has two starts where he has not allowed a run. Overall the 34-year-old veteran has a 4.11 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 131/34 K/BB ratio over 28 starts on the season.
Hyun Jin Ryu revealed after Monday's start versus the Yankees that he was removed early due to some arm stiffness according to Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun.
Ryu was able to shut out the Yankees for six innings allowing three hits and struck out six before having to leave the game. The left-hander doesn't expect his arm to be an issue moving forward. “There’s not going to be a situation where I have to see a doctor to check up on this,” Ryu said.
Hyun-Jin Ryu gave up three runs on three hits with three walks and six strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Orioles.
Ryu has been struggling on the mound and over his last five starts is 1-3 with a 7.18 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. The 34-year-old veteran is scheduled to face the Yankees in his next start and fantasy managers may want to avoid Ryu for that one.
