Roberts, head athletic trainer Neil Rampe and interpreter Bryan Lee went to the mound along with the Dodgers infielders, and after a short discussion, Roberts took the ball and Ryu walked to the bench.Ryu is 2-0 with a 3.07 ERA this season. He threw 34 pitches against the Cardinals and allowed Marcell Ozuna’s two-run homer in the first.The Dodgers recalled right-hander J.T. Chargois to take Ryu’s place on the roster.
