On Friday, Ryu was throwing long toss in left field and twice overthrew his intended target. Video of the sequence is courtesy of J.P. Hoornstra of the LA Daily News:
After completing that, Ryu moved into the bullpen:
According to Hoornstra, Ryu threw 20 pitches with a better fastball than breaking ball:
Ryu's first bullpen session since his shoulder injury is over after about 20 pitches. Fastball looked more crisp than the breaking balls.

With the Dodgers locked into the No. 2 overall record in the National League, the presumed plan is for Ryu to start Game 3 of the NLDS on Oct. 6. Assuming Ryu doesn’t suffer any setbacks along the way, he would have had just over three weeks to recover from the shoulder irritation.
