Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is second on the team in wins, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a muscle strain.
The Dodgers announced that Ryu (13-6, 3.28 ERA) had an MRI and an evaluation by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, which revealed mild strains of gluteal and hip muscles on his right side.
Kevin Correia, a veteran right-hander acquired last week in a trade with Minnesota, will take Ryu’s spot in the rotation starting with Tuesday’s game, Mattingly said.
Manager Don Mattingly said before Friday’s game against Milwaukee that he couldn’t estimate the timetable for Ryu’s return, but said he didn’t expect the injury to jeopardize the rest of Ryu’s season. Ryu suffered the injury during the sixth inning of Wednesday’s game at Atlanta.
''This is not an injury that (doctors have) seen a whole lot of,'' Mattingly said. ''The timetable will kind of be determined as we go.''
The Dodgers were expected to call up a reliever from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday night to take Ryu’s roster spot. They also made a minor trade Friday, when they acquired right-hander Justin Germano from Texas for future considerations. Germano was assigned to Triple-A Albuquerque.
