ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers placed left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a strained left groin.
The same injury sidelined Ryu for more than half of last season, but he said Monday night that this injury did not feel as serious. Ryu left with two outs in the second inning of a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
Manager Dave Roberts said Ryu did not undergo an MRI and that Ryu “did feel a little better” on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old left-hander hurt his groin last May 2 and did not return to the Dodgers until Aug. 15. At the time of last year’s injury, Ryu said he previously injured the groin in May 2016.
The Dodgers recalled right-hander J.T. Chargois to take Ryu’s place on the roster.
