LOS ANGELES -- Hyun-jin Ryu has recovered enough from his groin injury to resume his throwing program, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said on Monday afternoon.

Ryu will throw 20-25 pitches in a bullpen session on Tuesday as he continues to progress from left shoulder surgery that wiped out his 2015 season. There remains no timetable for Ryu's return.

But he's not the only other Dodgers player dealing with injuries. Here are updates on some of the other 10 players currently on the disabled list.

Scott Van Slyke continues to deal with lower back tightness, and is still a few weeks away.

"He's doing a lot of core things. No baseball activities. He's working on breathing, still training himself," Roberts said, then elaborated, "There are breathing techniques, to use your core the right way, and stretching and all that kind of stuff."

Brett Anderson, recovering from back surgery during spring training, isn't yet close to baseball activities, but is in what he called the second phase of his core exercises, working to stay strong while rehabbing.

Anderson isn't yet throwing a baseball, but has arm exercises he does to keep his arm in shape until he can throw again.

Yimi Garcia feels better, after getting placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday with right biceps soreness.

"It's more localized in the bicep. It's not as painful as it was before," Roberts said. "He's still a few days away from picking up a baseball."

Alex Guerrero, sidelined with a left knee contusion, is still at Camelback Ranch, but listening to Roberts describe his status, Guerrero might as well be in orbit.

"He's still in Glendale, I guess rehabbing. You would think he's getting better, as the calendar continues to move forward," Roberts said. "But I haven't heard anything regarding a rehab assignment yet."
