Hyun-jin Ryu throwing without pain, but timetable remains unclear

LOS ANGELES -- Hyun-jin Ryu continued his throwing program on Sunday, one he has been doing for nearly two weeks. The good news is Ryu is not feeling any pain in his left shoulder, but there still isn't a set timetable for his return to the Dodgers.

Well, maybe there is a very loose timetable, in that Ryu laughed off the notion his shoulder impingement might keep him out until the All-Star break.

"Of course I'll be back by then," Ryu said through an interpreter on Sunday morning.

Earlier Sunday, Ryu threw on the outfield grass at Dodger Stadium, his third straight day of throwing. He's able to throw curves and changeups and has been throwing from about 90 feet, all without pain. But there are still steps between now and getting on a mound.

"I don't know when I'll be able to throw a bullpen. I've just been throwing outside on the field," Ryu said. "So far it's just making sure I have no pain. At this condition I probably could [throw a bullpen session] but I haven't thrown long toss yet."

Ryu last pitched in a game on March 17. As of now, he's not thinking of when his next game might be.

"I haven't thought about a timetable," Ryu said. "I'm just doing what they tell me."
