Jose Urquidy News
Houston Astros starting pitcher Jose Urquidy will start Game 3 of the American League Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox on Monday. Urquidy will be making his first start of the postseason after pitching to a 3.62 ERA and a 4.14 FIP to go along with 90 strikeouts and 19 walks in 107 innings during the regular season. The right-hander made one start against Boston earlier this year on May 31, allowing three hits, one earned run, and a walk in six innings while striking out a season-high nine batters.
Houston Astros pitcher Jose Urquidy was originally slated to start Game 4 of the ALDS against the Chicago White Sox. However, after the game was postponed from Monday to Tuesday, manager Dusty Baker decided to go with Lance McCullers Jr. as the team's starter on short rest instead. As a result, Urquidy will be available out of the bullpen for the game, according to Baker. The 26-year-old right-hander has yet to pitch this postseason, but he made eight appearances (four starts) over the last two postseasons and performed well, pitching to a 2.46 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.
Houston Astros starter Jose Urquidy will take the mound Tuesday night against the Rays. Urquidy has made four starts since returning from a shoulder injury and is 2-0 during that span with a 1.13 WHIP and a 4.34 ERA. The right-handed starter has been able to extend his pitch count in each proceeding start but has allowed 17 hits over his last 18 2/3 innings pitched. Urquidy twirled seven shutout innings against the Rays on May 1 but that was before he dealt with shoulder issues. Urquidy will be a middle-of-the-road DFS option for Tuesday.
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.
