ANAHEIM -- The Dodgers expect left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu to make his scheduled start on Sunday after taking a line drive off the top of his left foot during his shutout of the Angels on Tuesday.

X-rays on Ryu's left foot were negative. He had his foot in a bucket of ice Wednesday afternoon in the visiting clubhouse at Angel Stadium.

"Obviously he's a little bit sore," manager Don Mattingly said before Wednesday's game against the Angels. "I think he's going to be fine. We expect him to be ready by his next start [on Sunday in Colorado]."

Ryu made a kick save on a comebacker by Mark Trumbo to end the third inning of Tuesday's 3-0 win, the rookie's first shutout in 11 Major League starts. Mattingly said the ball struck Ryu on top of his foot, near the toes.

Ryu is 6-2 with 2.89 ERA and 67 strikeouts in 71 2/3 innings.
