Los Angeles Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu, who has been struggling lately, will miss a start in the rotation to get some rest, manager Dave Roberts said Friday. Ryu will miss a scheduled start in Baltimore, and should get 9-10 days off in a row.
Ryu boasted a major-league leading ERA of 1.45 on Aug. 11. Since then, the 32-year-old left-hander has a 9.95 ERA.
He has given up five home runs in the four starts since Aug. 11. He had given up only 10 in 22 starts before then.
Fatigue might be a factor. Ryu has pitched 161 innings this season, the most he has pitched since 2013. In the four seasons preceding this year, Ryu had pitched only 213 innings combined.
