Julio Urías News
The Los Angeles Dodgers and left-handed starting pitcher Julio Urias agreed to a one-year, $14.25 million deal to avoid salary arbitration on Friday. The 26-year-old southpaw deserves the big raise after another excellent season for the Dodgers in 2022. Urias went 17-7 with a league-best 2.16 ERA (3.71 FIP), 0.96 WHIP and 24.1 percent strikeout rate in 175 innings over 31 starts. He also led the league with a 194 ERA+ and finished third in the National League Cy Young voting. After two straight strong seasons for the Blue, Urias is locked in as a low-end fantasy ace/high-end No. 2 for the 2023 season.
Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias will start Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Tuesday against the San Diego Padres, and he'll be opposed by right-hander Mike Clevinger of the Padres. Urias definitely deserves the Game 1 nod after going 17-7 with a 2.16 ERA (3.71 FIP), a 0.96 WHIP, 166 strikeouts and 41 walks in 175 innings over 31 starts just a year after winning a league-high 20 games for the Dodgers. He went a perfect 3-0 and gave up just four earned runs on 15 hits while walking 10 and striking out 18 in 24 innings in his four starts against San Diego this year. Urias will be very popular as a postseason DFS starter on Tuesday.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias picked up his 15th win of the season on Saturday night as his club cruised to a 12-1 victory over the Padres. The lefty allowed one run on two hits over six innings, striking out a pair and walking three in the 78-pitch effort. Urias breezed through the first five innings, but Manny Machado tagged him with two outs in the sixth to break the goose egg on the road half of the scoreboard. The 26-year-old now owns a crisp 2.29 ERA and 0.95 WHIP with a 139/34 K/BB through 145 2/3 IP as he sets his sights on a rematch with the Padres next weekend.
Julio Urias had his best year in the Majors in 2022, with a 17-7 W-L record, 2.16 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 166 Ks (175.0 IP). Only Justin Verlander had a lower ERA among qualified pitchers and that helped him to third in the NL Cy Young voting (behind Sandy Alcantara and Max Fried). So, it should come as no surprise that Urias has an ADP of ~49 (as the 12th starting pitcher) and there's nothing to suggest he can't offer value on that ADP. Urias' underlying numbers last year do suggest he was a bit lucky and we should expect regression, with a 2.81 xERA, 3.66 SIERA and 3.81 xFIP. Urias' HardHit% ranked in the 96th percentile and he has a career 4.00 xFIP and 3.91 SIERA despite having a career 2.82 ERA so it's not something that should put you off from drafting Urias. Urias might not manage 200 IP like other SP1 candidates but his 360.2 IP over the last two years has only been bettered by 12 other pitchers so there shouldn't be any concerns over his resilience. On a team that continues to put up runs, outside of strikeouts, there's no reason not to take Urias at his ADP.
