LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed left-handed pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-day disabled list with a left hip contusion and recalled right-handed pitcher Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Fields will make his third stint with the club after tossing scoreless relief in eight of nine games for the Dodgers this season, posting a 1.29 ERA (1 ER/7.0 IP) and striking out 12 batters against only one walk in 7.0 innings. Fields last pitched on Saturday against the Phillies, allowing his first run of the season on two hits in 0.2 innings of relief for Los Angeles and was optioned to Triple-A OKC following the game.
Ryu made his fifth start of the season yesterday against the Phillies, allowing just one run on three hits in 5.1 innings and striking out a season-high nine batters to record his first win of the season. It was his first victory since August 31, 2014 at San Diego. Ryu has gone 1-4 with a 4.05 ERA (12 ER/26.2 IP) this season, while striking out 29 batters against eight walks.
