To make room for May and Gonsolin, the team optioned RHP Dylan Floro to AAA, and placed LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-day injured list with neck soreness. Possibly of the phantom variety.
Floro had just made his return from the injured list, making one scoreless appearance.
To make room on the 40-man roster, LHP Scott Alexander was transferred to the 60-day IL with continued forearm soreness.
Ryu’s time on the IL should be retroactive to August 1st. This is second stint on the IL in 2019 after he missed the minimum amount of time in April with a slight groin strain. His neck issue is not considered serious.
