Dodgers Spring Training Recap: Jansen Gets A Boot, Ryu Plays Catch
With the start of Spring Training games drawing closer, the Los Angeles Dodgers continue to deal with injuries to multiple players on their roster.
Kenley Jansen’s has been known since before the start of camp and though he’s expected to be out at least until the end of April, he’s managed to get some form of a workout in since reporting to Spring Training. On multiple occasions, Jansen has thrown off one foot — his right — while his left foot rests in an elevated position.
However, it may not be too long before Jansen is able to throw from both feet as he was fitted for a boot on Friday. The next step will be getting stitches removed and so long as there aren’t any setbacks, Jansen can then begin placing weight on his left foot.
As for Hyun-Jin Ryu, he once again didn’t throw a bullpen session Friday as he’s still recovering from back stiffness. However, the left-hander did play catch and maintains that his injury isn’t serious.
Ryu cited previous experience with the back issue and said it’s typically subsided after three days. Given that he’s fallen behind schedule compared to other pitchers, it’s not a stretch to believe he won’t take the ball on March 6, when the Dodgers would need their third starter of spring.
