Spring Training Notes: Ryu gets rotation nod, Masterson inked for depth, Seager feature

Hyun-Jin Ryu had arguably his worst outing of his Spring Training yesterday, giving up three runs and two homers in five innings of work, but that was enough to convince Dave Roberts that the left-hander was adequately recovered from shoulder and elbow surgeries to earn a rotation spot. “I think Ryu is throwing well, he’s …

There are so many options that it’s an almost impossible task, but I’m going to give it my best shot. Previous entries in this series: 2018 (2015) 2019 …
