Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Aiming for April mound work
Ryu (elbow) hopes to throw his first post-Tommy John surgery bullpen session sometime in April, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Ryu is currently throwing on flat ground from 90-120 feet as he moves along in his rehab. The veteran lefty said through an interpreter that he hopes to rejoin the Blue Jays' rotation "sometime in mid-July." That would be right at 13 months after his Tommy John surgery, which is a relatively fast return for a starting pitcher. Toronto, for what it's worth, has a "loose date in mind" for Ryu's return, but it's a "moving target," per Matheson.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Recovery on schedule
Manager John Schneider said Thursday that Ryu's (elbow) recovery from Tommy John surgery is on schedule, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Schneider also noted if Ryu does make it back late in the season, the veteran lefty would immediately slide into the rotation. Ryu has a goal of returning from last summer's operation in July, though that timetable might be a bit optimistic. The Blue Jays surely would be happy if they can get a healthy and effective Ryu back at any point after the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Targeting July return
Ryu (elbow) said Wednesday he's targeting July for his return from Tommy John surgery, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.
The 35-year-old underwent the procedure in June 2022, so a return in July would be on the short end of the usual 12-to-18-month recovery timeline. Even if cleared for game action in July, Ryu could have a limited workload down the stretch coming off the injury.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Shifts to 60-day IL
Ryu (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Monday.
Ryu's shift to the 60-day IL is simply procedural, as the southpaw underwent Tommy John surgery in mid-June and will be sidelined until at least the second half of the 2023 season. The 35-year-old is entering the final season of his four-year, $80 million contract with Toronto in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
Ryu (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Saturday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
Ryu was diagnosed with UCL damage to his left elbow last week, but the Blue Jays spent the last several days weighing several surgical options. Although the team's medical staff considered some revised procedures, the southpaw ultimately underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career. The surgery will force Ryu to miss 12-to-18 months, meaning he won't be able to return until at least the second half of the 2023 season. It's not yet clear whether the 35-year-old will pitch for the Blue Jays again since he's entering the final season of his four-year, $80 million contract in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Getting surgery, out for season
Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins said Tuesday that Ryu will undergo season-ending surgery to address UCL damage to his left elbow, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Atkins said the Blue Jays aren't yet sure what type of procedure Ryu will need, but the 35-year-old southpaw is expected to require the second Tommy John surgery of his career or a revision of the one he had as a teenager in 2004. According to Mitchell, a normal Tommy John surgery would necessitate a 12-to-15-month recovery time, while a revised one would likely sideline him for 9-to-12 months. Either way, Ryu's recovery timeline will extend through the rest of the season and likely into the early portion of the 2023 campaign. Ryu, who posted a 5.67 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in six starts before hitting the shelf earlier this month, will enter the final season of his four-year, $80 million contract in 2023.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Expected to miss significant time
Ryu (forearm/elbow) is expected to miss significant time, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Ryu's forearm strain and elbow inflammation were already expected to sideline him for multiple weeks, and he's slated to visit Dr. Neal ElAttrache in California on Thursday to receive a second opinion. Although the Blue Jays were initially optimistic that the southpaw wasn't dealing with a significant issue, it now appears as though his injuries are more serious than anticipated. A better timetable for the 35-year-old's return is unlikely to be revealed until he receives additional medical insight, but Ross Stripling should maintain a rotation spot while Ryu is sidelined....

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Heading for second opinion
Ryu (forearm/elbow) will visit Dr. Neal ElAttrache in California on Thursday to receive a second opinion for his injuries, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The veteran left-hander landed on the shelf last week with a forearm strain and elbow inflammation, and according to GM Ross Atkins, some "chronic changes" to Ryu's elbow have shown up via MRI. The team is optimistic it's not a significant issue, but the 35-year-old's recovery timeline remains up in the air, at least until Thursday's evaluation.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Slated to miss multiple weeks
Ryu is dealing with a forearm strain and elbow inflammation and will be forced to miss multiple weeks, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Ryu was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday, and it appears likely that he'll be forced to spend more than the minimum amount of time on the shelf. The southpaw will receive additional opinions on his injury, but Ross Stripling will take his place in the starting rotation for now, with Nate Pearson (illness) also a possible option once he gets stretched out at Triple-A....

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Placed on 15-day IL
Ryu was placed on the 15-day injured list with left forearm inflammation Thursday.
Ryu was removed from Wednesday's start against the White Sox due to forearm tightness, and he'll land on the IL after undergoing further tests. The southpaw missed over a month earlier in the season due to forearm inflammation, but it's not yet clear how long he'll be sidelined during his current IL stint. Ross Stripling is expected to take Ryu's spot in the starting rotation.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Undergoing tests
Ryu is undergoing tests on his left forearm Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Ryu left his start Wednesday against the White Sox due to left forearm tightness, the latest issue in an injury-filled season for the veteran southpaw. He missed over a month early in the year with forearm inflammation and also exited his last start in May due to elbow tightness. It's hard to be confident in his ability to make his next start, but whether or not that's in play should become clear once the results of his tests are known. Ross Stripling is expected to slot into the rotation if Ryu is unable to make his next turn and ends up on the injured list, according to Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Pulled with forearm tightness
Ryu was removed from Wednesday's start against the White Sox due to left forearm tightness, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.
Ryu allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits with four strikeouts and zero walks over four innings before exiting with the injury. The veteran left-hander experienced tightness in his left elbow during his previous start and also spent a month on the injured list earlier this season with forearm inflammation, and the recurring issues likely don't bode well for his availability in the immediate future....

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Ready to go Wednesday
The Blue Jays list Ryu (elbow) as their probable starter for Wednesday's home game against the White Sox, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Even though he was pulled in his most recent start Thursday against the Angels due to left elbow tightness, Ryu looks like he completed a bullpen session over the weekend without incident. With the benefit of an off day Monday, Ryu will be returning to the bump on five days' rest rather than his usual four and shouldn't face any major restrictions with his workload.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Earns another win
Ryu (2-0) registered the win during Thursday's 6-3 victory over the Angels, allowing two runs on six hits and one walk with one strikeout in five innings.
Ryu was staked to an early four-run lead and limited the damage to two runs on three hits in the third inning for his second straight win. In three starts since returning from a forearm injury, the 35-year-old has allowed three runs in 15.2 innings compared to 11 through 7.1 innings in his first two turns. It all amounts to a 5.48 ERA and 1.35 WHIP in five starts while averaging fewer than five innings per start. He'll go for his third win when he faces the White Sox next week.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Hyun Jin Ryu: Managing elbow tightness
Ryu was removed from Thursday's start against the Angels after five innings since he was experiencing tightness in his left elbow, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Ryu picked up his second win of the season during Thursday's matchup, but he was pulled after throwing just 65 pitches. The southpaw missed nearly a month with forearm inflammation earlier in the year, so it's somewhat concerning to see him dealing with an elbow issue during his third start after returning to the mound. However, Ryu is confident that he'll be available to make his next start. If he's healthy, he projects to start at home against the White Sox on Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
