Ryu finally gets a WIN

Ryu finally gets a WIN

Hyun-Jin Ryu picked up his 1 st win of the year today. Actually it’s his first win since 2014 due to injuries.

He has been steadily improving his velocity, and today mixing up his pitches a bit more to throw hitters off until his

velocity is fully back. A look at his Dodger career is at 29-20 with a 3.33 era, very respectable but this was before

the injury. Hopefully, and the Dodgers are betting on a bounce back year for him.

At 30 years old he is in the prime pitching years and has a chance to be an important part of a

championship year. He has great control as his strikeout to walk ratio is 3.7 strikeouts to every walk. He is getting

better every outing and this should be great news to the Dodger faithful. In other Dodger news, a shout out goes

to Justin Turner who went 3 for 4 today to raise his batting average to .404. It is way too early to start a race to

.400 count-down but this far into the season it is interesting. He is on fire and helped the Dodgers to their sweep of

the Phillies.
