LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers on Monday placed pitcher Hyun-jin Ryu on the disabled list with left foot contusion, shutting him down through the All-Star break, and recalled pitcher Ross Stripling from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the series opener against the Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium.
Ryu was hit by a line drive in the fourth inning of his last start, on Wednesday against the Angels in Anaheim, though he stayed in the game into the sixth.
.@HyunJinRyu99 x-rays were negative but he still has soreness. 10-day DL. @RossStripling is activated.— Alanna Rizzo (@alannarizzo) July 4, 2017
Ryu is 3-6 with a 4.21 ERA in 14 games, including 13 starts, with 69 strikeouts and 22 walks in 72⅔ innings.
This is Ryu’s second stint on the DL this season.
Stripling was optioned to Triple-A on June 26, and normally would have to remain in the minors for 10 days (through Wednesday), but is allowed to return earlier because he is replacing someone on the disabled list.
Stripling has a 4.03 ERA in 22 relief appearances in 2017 and leads the Dodgers bullpen with 38 innings. He has 40 strikeouts and 10 walks, with opposing batters hitting .299/.338/.415.
