José Urquidy News
Houston Astros starting pitcher Jose Urquidy earned his ninth win of the season Friday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks in six innings against the Seattle Mariners. He struck out three batters. Urquidy has now delivered seven consecutive quality starts, improving his ERA from 5.04 to 3.93 in that span. He also has a 1.23 WHIP and 77 strikeouts in 100 2/3 innings this season. He's worth adding while he's on this hot streak.
Houston Astros starting pitcher Jose Urquidy allowed one run over six innings on Saturday as his club toppled the Angels 9-1. He gave up just two hits and three walks while striking out eight with the only run coming around on a Taylor Ward home run in the third. Urquidy takes his record to 7-3 on the season as he's now allowed just one run in each of his last three starts while logging a quality start in five of his last six contests. The 27-year-old is starting to even out his rough start to the season as he currently sits with a 4.15 ERA and 1.33 WHIP through 15 starts as he looks ahead to a home matchup versus the Royals.
Houston Astros pitcher Jose Urquidy allowed six runs (five earned) on 12 hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Seattle Mariners. He was tagged with his second loss of the season. The 27-year-old put a season-high 14 runners on base and has now surrendered at least 12 hits in two of his last three starts. He has failed to reach five innings in six of his previous nine outings. Urquidy continues to struggle this season, posting a 4.80 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, and a 34:7 K: BB across 45 innings. The Astros right-hander will look to turn things around in his next start Friday on the road against the Kansas City Royals. Urquidy is not a recommended streamer in all league formats with his recent struggles.
Houston Astros pitcher Jose Urquidy was efficient despite being limited with shoulder discomfort in 2021. He posted an 8-3 record with a 3.62 ERA, 4.01 xERA,0.99 WHIP, 4.14 FIP, and 90 strikeouts over 107 innings. The 26-year-old isn't an elite strikeout pitcher (32nd percentile in K%) but has excellent command, as evidenced by last year's 96th percentile walk rate. He should limit any self-damage by using his four-pitch arsenal, led by his great changeup. The right-hander's lack of durability is concerning, as he's only thrown for 100-plus innings just once in his career. ATC projects Urquidy with a 9-7 record, 10 quality starts, 4.25 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 120 strikeouts over 137 innings in 2022. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, ATC's projections have Urquidy roughly fair value at his ADP of 214. Urquidy will provide good ratios and is solid SP 4/5 in upcoming fantasy drafts despite the lack of durability.
