Hyun-jin Ryu scratched from Wednesday start, out indefinitely with reported elbow discomfort

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Dodgers pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu won't make his scheduled start on Wednesday for the Dodgers against the Nationals, scratched with elbow discomfort, per Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball.

The Dodgers officially placed Ryu on the 15-day disabled list with elbow discomfort.

Other Dodgers beat reporters chimed in from Washington D.C.

It is important to note that the last time the Dodgers said a Ryu MRI exam showed no noticeable changes from previous results, it was because he pitched with a torn labrum in his shoulder for two years.

Ryu made just one start this season for the Dodgers, after missing a year and a half following surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. Ryu allowed six runs in 4⅔ innings on July 7 against the Padres, his first start in 640 days.

The Dodgers haven't yet announced starters for Wednesday and Thursday, but Bud Norris figures to start one of those games. The scheduled starters for Triple-A Oklahoma City this week were Brock Stewart on Tuesday night, Jose De Leon on Wednesday night, and Ross Stripling on Thursday.
