Gio Urshela News
Los Angeles Angels infielder Gio Urshela (pelvis) sustained a left pelvis fracture back in June, and it was reported that he'd miss the rest of the 2023 season. As of Monday, though, the 31-year-old is no longer using crutches and is expected to go through a normal offseason, but he still won't return before the end of this year. Before hitting the injured list, Urshela batted .299 with a pair of home runs, 22 runs, 24 RBI, and three steals over 62 games. The eight-year veteran is a free agent heading into 2024 and shouldn't have trouble landing a big-league contract.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Gio Urshela (pelvis) is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to manager Phil Nevin. The veteran infielder landed on the injured list over the weekend due to a left pelvis fracture. The good news is, Urshela won't need surgery, but he isn't expected to be able to play again this season. It's a tough blow as Urshela's defensive versatility was a beneficial asset to this roster. Michael Stefanic was recalled to take the spot on the roster, so possibly he gets more playing time going forward.
Los Angeles Angels infielder Gio Urshela (hip) has been placed on the 10-day injured list on Friday. The corner infielder was removed from Thursday's game after falling down while attempting to run out a grounder. The 31-year-old was seen using crutches, which is never a good sign. The Angels revealed that Urshela suffered a left pelvis fracture. It's uncertain how long this injury is going to sideline him. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Urshela back anytime soon. In a corresponding move, infielder Michael Stefanic has been recalled to take the spot on the active roster.
After his out-of-nowhere breakout in 2019, the pressure was on New York Yankees third basemanGio Urshela to prove it wasn't a fluke. He lived up to it, as he put together a very nice 2020 season. While he didn't display as strong a power profile as he did in 2019, he did still manage a solid .192 ISO and his Statast batted-ball profile is quite encouraging and not far off from his 2019 breakout season. His average exit velocity (91.4 mph) and expected batting average (.315) both topped his 2019 marks, while his barrel and hard-hit rates were in line with his 2019 season. Urshela also maintained his reputation for putting the ball in play, with his strikeout rate dropping way down to 14.4%, one of the lowest marks in baseball. Urshela also made strides in what was his biggest area of weakness: plate discipline. His walk rate skyrocketed to 10.3%, double what it was in 2019. This was due to Urshela being a bit more selective at the plate. His swing rate dropped 8% to 48.2% swing rate. That drop in swing rate is mainly due to his chase rate dropping 12.5% to 27.6%. Urshela already had an encouraging batted-ball profile, but with an extra boost in plate discipline, he should be a player to believe in going forward and is likely still a bargain with an ADP in the 150s.
