Dodgers News: Hyun-Jin Ryu Impresses in First Spring Training Start Against Angels

The day after Brandon McCarthy came out and shut down the Texas Rangers, Hyun-Jin Ryu gave Dodger fans his own welcome back party against the Los Angeles Angels.

All eyes were going to be on Ryu as he took the mound against the Angels, where according to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA, he was scheduled to pitch just two innings.

Ryu excelled in his two innings. He allowed just one hit, struck out two and walked none.

Multiple reports had Ryu sitting around 86-88, topping out at 91 mph. That’s similar, if not a slight tick above, his velocity at the start of spring training.

Lost in what looks to have been a successful day for Ryu and his left arm, was a fantastic play that he made on a comebacker.

There is a lot to be excited about with Ryu leaving his successful start without injury, as he could be a vital part of either the starting rotation or bullpen for the team in 2017.
