Hyun-Jin Ryu played catch with Juan Uribe prior to the Dodgers’ game against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday. Two days ago, he played catch with head athletic trainer Stan Conte. The pitcher appears to be making progress in his “submaximal throwing program,” as Dodgers manager Don Mattingly called it, while recovering from a strained right gluteus medius.
“Timetable-wise, I don’t think we have that, but the fact that he’s throwing and feeling good — Stan said the day before the catch was fairly firm,” Mattingly said. “Assuming it’s continuing to progress. Right now, feel pretty good about it.
Ryu isn’t able to run yet, Mattingly said. He’s eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list on August 29.
