The Los Angeles Dodgers added more bad news to their disappointing start to the season Wednesday when they lost starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu in the second inning of their matchup with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The team later told reporters that he had suffered a left groin strain.


Ryu prompted a mound visit after an awkward delivery on a pitch to Deven Marrero and immediately left the game. He was off to an excellent start to his season, sporting a 2.22 ERA with 34 strikeouts and nine walks and a 3-0 record.

It’s the latest in string of key injuries for the Dodgers.

The team lost All-Star Corey Seager for the season to Tommy John surgery on Monday. Outfielder Yasiel Puig went on the disabled list with a bruised hip last week. Starting pitcher Rich Hill has missed time with a cracked, infected fingernail. And the team is still waiting for third baseman Justin Turner to return from a broken wrist suffered in spring training.
