Dodgers scratch LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu from start Friday
DENVER (AP) — A back injury suffered by Ryu Hyun-jin has forced the Los Angeles Dodgers to scratch the South Korean pitcher from his scheduled start Friday at Cincinnati.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, speaking before Wednesday night’s game at Colorado, said Chris Capuano (4-7) would start in place of Ryu (13-5). He’ll be opposed by the Reds’ Mike Leake (11-6).
The Dodgers are off on Thursday.
