It’s been exactly one year and two months since he underwent elbow ligament reconstruction surgery after suffering a painful elbow injury against the Chicago White Sox last June.

“He’s not going to be limited in terms of pitches, and we’re going to use him like we would any other pitcher, based on his velocity, his delivery and his health.”
Over the course of four minor league rehabilitation appearances, beginning with a bullpen stint in May, Ryu has upped his fastball to 146 mph.
“My velocity is increasing every time I pitch, and I’m happy with my pitches,” Ryu told local media, expressing confidence ahead of his return.
San Diego’s Ha-Sung Kim continued his strong play today.
After using his quick feet to get an infield hit in the first inning, he moved one step closer to the 20-homer, 20-stolen base mark for the first time in his big league career.
After sprinting to score the go-ahead run in the next at-bat, Kim scored on an exquisite slide in the sixth inning after leading off with a walk to seal the win.
