Pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday had his first live batting practice session since undergoing elbow surgery in September last year. Ryu pitched in just one game in the last two seasons due to a series of injuries, but now hopes to return to the team's starting rotation this season.

Ryu threw 25 pitches against minor league batters, striking out three in one inning in the practice session. "As a pitcher I definitely want to be in the starting rotation from day one. And from the looks of it... I have a lot of confidence I can make it," Ryu said in an interview with MLB.com on Sunday.
