Dodgers’ Puig set to start rehab assignment, but Ryu’s recovery slows - The Orange County Register

This doesn’t sound good.

Ryu was supposed to begin throwing to hitters this week but did not make the trip with the Dodgers. Instead, he stayed behind to work out at Dodger Stadium and the training staff “decided to give him a couple days off” after his velocity decreased during his most recent bullpen session.

Mattingly said Ryu was clocked at only 82-83 mph during his throwing session Friday at Dodger Stadium, “a couple ticks below” what he had thrown in his previous workout. The lost velocity is suspected to be a result of “that tired-arm thing” pitchers often go through during spring training, the manager said.

Hyun-jin Ryu rapped about credit cards in a Korean commercial

Opa Hyun-jin Style?

Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu is a big star in his native Korea, which is why he stars in goofy commercials like this one.

Last fall, Ryu starred in an ad for ramen that also featured a fake Clayton Kershaw. Now he’s rapping to promote credit cards for a Korean bank. His outfit is spot-on and the Mission Impossible theme makes for a pretty good beat.

Ryu is currently on the disabled list with a shoulder injury. He’ll be back soon enough, but it’s nice to know that he has a potential career as a K-pop star waiting for him when his career is over.
