      Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who picked up his first win in 973 days on Sunday, has been put on a 10-day disabled list for contusion on his left hip.

      Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said prior to a home game against the San Francisco Giants on Monday that Ryu felt "a little tightness" on his hip as he slid into second base on Sunday's game. "We don't want to put him in harm's way at all," Roberts said, adding Ryu will hopefully not miss more than one start.

      During his win on Sunday over the Philadelphia Phillies, Ryu ran to the first base with a hit in the fourth inning. When the next batter Andrew Toles hit a ground ball, Ryu slid to the second base but was tagged out. He stayed in the game and got four more outs before he was replaced in the sixth inning.

      It is the sixth time that Ryu went on the disabled list. The severity of his injury is not known, but if it is just a contusion resulting from a slide, he will be able to get back on the mound soon.
