Ryu looks to extend his walkless streak

Ryu has yet to walk a batter in 2019. He went 15 spring training innings without a walk and has followed that up with 13 innings to start the season without a walk.

At thirteen innings, Ryu has the fifth-best mark to in LAD history for starters to start a season without a walk. Just last year, Alex Wood started the season with three starts and seventeen innings of zero walk pitching.  He’s now playing for the Reds. In 2001 Luke Prokopec started the season with 20 innings of zero walk pitching. The next year he was pitching in Toronto and was out of baseball the year after that.  Mike Morgan has the longest streak to start a season at 23 2/3 innings. He did it in 1990 and was pitching for the Cubs by 1992.
