Hyun-Jin Ryu will become the second Korean pitcher to start Opening Day for LA.
After the announcement of Clayon Kershaw and Walker Buehler being unavailable for the start, it was essentially down to either Ryu or Rich Hill. However, it was announced that Hill would be starting the season on the injured list with a left knee medial collateral strain. After getting an MRI, Hill is expected to miss a few weeks.
Here are the first four starters for the Dodgers:
Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks (Thursday): Hyun-jin Ryu
Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks (Friday): Ross Stripling
Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks (Saturday): Kenta Maeda
Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks (Sunday): Walker Buehler
