LOS ANGELES (May 21, 2014) – The Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday reinstated left-handed pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu from the 15-day disabled list (left shoulder inflammation) and optioned right-handed reliever Chris Withrow to Triple-A Albuquerque.
Ryu will start tonight’s game against the Mets at Citi Field, his eighth start of the season and first since April 27 against Colorado. The 27-year-old has gone 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA this season, but has posted a 3-0 record without allowing a run in 26.0 innings in his four road starts. Dating to 2013, Ryu has tossed 28.0 scoreless innings on the road, tying Eric Gagne for the fifth-longest road scoreless streak by a Dodger since 1980.
Withrow has posted a 2.95 ERA in 20 appearances with the Dodgers this season, while limiting opponents to a .143 batting average with 28 strikeouts in 21.1 innings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers franchise, with six World Series championships and 21 National League pennants since its beginnings in Brooklyn in 1890, is committed to a tradition of pride and excellence. The Dodgers are dedicated to supporting a culture of winning baseball, providing a first-class, fan-friendly experience at Dodger Stadium, and building a strong partnership with the community. With the highest cumulative fan attendance in Major League Baseball history, and a record of breaking barriers, the Dodgers are one of the most cherished sports franchises in the world.
