Julio Urías News
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias will be an option out of the bullpen in the team's Wild Card game against the St. Louis Cardinals, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. Urias last pitched on Saturday, when he limited the Milwaukee Brewers to one hit, two walks and one earned run over 6 1/3 innings. Roberts also said that starting pitcher Walker Buehler won't be on the roster for the Wild Card game as he's lined up to pitch Game 1 of the NLDS if the Dodgers advance. If Urias doesn't pitch on Wednesday and the Dodgers advance, it seems likely that the 25-year-old would start Game 2 of the NLDS.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias continued his strong season with another victory on Wednesday versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. The lefty logged five innings and allowed three hits, two runs, two walks and struck out five on the evening. Urias continues to put together a great season and is now 18-3 with a steady 2.99 ERA. Next up for Urias will be a date versus the Colorado Rockies in Coors Field on Wednesday. Despite the disadvantage of pitching in Colorado, managers should still feel confident deploying Urias.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias spun seven scoreless innings during a 3-0 victory over the San Diego Padres on Friday. The 24-year-old was brilliant, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out seven across 94 pitches. The left-hander earned his major league-leading 17th win and has a 2.98 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 175 strikeouts across 163 1/3 innings pitched. On regular rest, Urias is slated to take the ball next Wednesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. However, the Dodgers could elect to give Urias extra rest, presenting a potential Friday tilt against the Cincinnati Reds. Regardless, the Dodgers lefty has proven to be matchup proof and should be deployed with confidence against any team.
Julio Urias has always tantalized the fantasy community because he's a lefty who throws a mid-90s fastball, has excellent complementary pitches, possesses good command, and has shown maturity beyond his years from an early age. Now we have recency bias, as he dominated during the Dodgers' World Series run, pitching in six games (starting two) and posting a 1.17 ERA, .138 BAA, and .263 SLG in 23 innings pitched. Now Urias is projected to be the number four starter. The strikeout rate was 20.1% last season while the walk rate was 8%. The swinging strike rate was 11.7%. Those are good numbers but not eye-popping. Here's the thing with Urias, though. He's never thrown more than 88 innings in any professional season. Most of the projection systems have him down for 130-140 innings pitched. He's being selected as the 42nd pitcher and 119th overall player. Dylan Bundy, who is being selected as the 40th pitcher, is projected to throw over 170 innings with better strikeout and walk rates.
