Mattingly: Ryu will not need rehab games

LOS ANGELES -- Left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu isn't expected to need rehab games as he recovers from a strained right gluteus muscle, manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday.
Ryu, who went on the disabled list Friday, played catch for the second straight day Wednesday.
"You feel like his arm will keep moving," Mattingly said. "He continues to improve. It sounded like yesterday was a little bit better."
Mattingly said the team is still unsure of a timetable for Ryu's return, but he doesn't expect to send him to the team's training facility in Arizona.
Ryu will continue to play catch and will work his way toward throwing on a mound, Mattingly said.
"He'll eventually get on a mound, but I haven't heard any talk about that," he said. "He just started playing catch. He's got some time. We're not going to push him."
Right-hander Kevin Correia pitched Tuesday in Ryu's place, allowing four runs in five innings and picking up a win in the series opener against the Padres.
• Mattingly said third baseman Juan Uribe continues to progress from his right hamstring strain and is starting baseball activity. On the disabled list, Uribe took batting practice before Wednesday's game.
• Former player and scout Dick Teed died Sunday at 88. Teed played one game for the Brooklyn Dodgers and later served the organization as a scout for 17 years.
