Dodgers ace Hyun-Jin Ryu has been one of the best, if not the best starting pitcher in baseball to start the 2019 season. With his latest scoreless start, Ryu added to his historic season.

Yes, his 1.35 ERA is the best in Dodgers history for any season of 12 starts or more. When a franchise features names like Koufax, Newcombe, Drysdale, and Kershaw, that’s an exceptional stat to add to your resume in a contract season.
Ryu is leading all of baseball in ERA, wins, K/BB, and BB/9. Moreover, he has gone 7+ innings in 8 of his 12 starts, which is good for second in the majors in average start length. h/t to Joe Davis for these numbers.
