Hyun-Jin Ryu Added To IL

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

Hyun-Jin Ryu was added to the IL over the weekend with a stiff neck. He is only expected to miss one start and it is supposed to be more of a precautionary move than anything. Tony Gonsolin will get the spot start in Ryu’s absence, he is worth a look for this week.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Hyun-Jin Ryu to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 39.91 projected fantasy points puts him at #8 behind Shane Bieber and ahead of Michael Clevinger. He has averaged 6.15 fantasy points in his past 40 games, which is slightly less than our projected per game average. He is projected to average 6.33 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#7) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 97%, he is the #21 most highly owned starting pitcher. Hyun-Jin Ryu is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #3 fantasy position rank.
