Has Hyun-jin Ryu played his last game as a Dodger?

When it was announced that the Dodgers had won the posting bid for South Korean left-hander Hyun-jin Ryu back on November 10, 2012, it was a pretty big deal.

8-14-16 Liberatore Quakes - Steve Saenz FP

Liberatore shaky in first rehab outing

With a score that resembled a football game more than a baseball game, the Dodgers Advanced Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes pounded the Visalia Rawhide (Diamondbacks) 17-8 on Sunday afternoon at LoanMart Field.
