LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu had successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, the team announced on Thursday, officially ruling out the left-hander for the remainder of the 2015 season.

The surgery was performed by team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles.

The Dodgers say Ryu is expected to be ready to pitch by spring training in 2016.

"It was a labral repair. Just talking with Stan [Conte, team head of medical services], he seemed pretty optimistic and upbeat about this being as good as it could possibly be," manager Don Mattingly told reporters on Thursday (sound per David Vassegh of Dodger Talk). "For someone who had to have surgery, it sounded like it was a really good result."
