The four-seamer averaged 92 mph that season, according to PITCHf/x data tabulated by Brooks Baseball, and 91 mph when he debuted in 2013.Roberts said he hoped Ryu could at least. bring his fastball up to 88 mph before he is called up.“I think with his pitch ability and command, as long as he’s healthy, that’s more than serviceable,” Roberts said.Ryu is scheduled to make another start next week, building up to five innings and 65 pitches and is expected to make five more before returning to the rotation. LOS ANGELES >> On the one hand, Hyun-Jin Ryu came out of his minor league injury-rehabilitation start for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga earlier this weekend feeling fine.Ryu threw four scoreless innings Friday night, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts reported a day later that the left-hander felt good.An eyebrow-raising moment, though, arrived when Roberts also revealed that Ryu’s fastball sat 86 mph and fell anywhere from 82-89 mph.“You want to get the average up a little bit higher,” Roberts said. “I know that it is rehab, but I expect the velocity to go up.”center_img “The results, we don’t care about,” Roberts said. “I think that it’s more for us how the pitches are executed and how they feel afterward.”Maeda good to go It looked a little ominous at first, when Kenta Maeda was hit by a 95 mph line drive in his right leg Tuesday at Arizona.But Maeda will still make his next scheduled start on Sunday afternoon in the series finale against Milwaukee.“Tomorrow?” asked Roberts, as the Japanese rookie walked through the dugout during the manager’s pregame session with reporters.“Yes,” Maeda replied and pumped his fist.“There you go,” Roberts said, answering a question about Maeda’s status.The right-hander left his start against the Diamondbacks in the sixth inning, though X-rays were later revealed to be normal and indicated only a leg bruise.“Every day, it gets better,” Roberts said. “It shouldn’t affect him at all.”Maeda has not missed a start this season, but one was pushed back earlier this month because of soreness in his hand.Last hurdleYasiel Puig made his final rehab start for Class-A for Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday. He went 1 for 4 and struck out twice.He left after seven innings. Roberts had said he did not need to play an entire game.Puig, out with a strained left hamstring, is scheduled to be activated from the disabled list Monday, as the Dodgers host Washington for a three-game series.In his five minor-league rehab assignments, Puig was 5 for 16 with a home run and two RBI.To make room for Puig, the Dodgers can option one of their outfielders, Kiké Hernández, Scott Van Slyke and Will Venable.AlsoJoc Pederson hit leadoff for the first time this season, while Chase Utley had a scheduled day off. Pederson was in the leadoff spot 69 times as a rookie in 2015 and had a .216 batting average, a .325 on-base percentage and a .437 slugging percentage in those opportunities. “There’s been some better contact,” Roberts said.last_img read more
