Julio Urías News
Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias (4-6) allowed one unearned run on two hits and two walks while striking out six across six innings in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Cleveland Guardians. The southpaw picked up his sixth win of the year. He walked a pair of batters and allowed a run in the first frame but would settle down and blank the Guardians the rest of the way. Urias threw 87 pitches, landing 61 for strikes, including 12 swinging strikes. The 25-year-old owns a 2.56 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and a 0.62 WHIP over 70 1/3 innings in 2022. Urias will look to keep things rolling and is a must-start for fantasy managers against the Atlanta Braves in Friday's road start.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias threw five scoreless innings against the Phillies on Friday. He gave up two hits and zero walks while striking out five batters. Urias has gone 3-3 with a 2.63 ERA, 6.80 K/9, and 1.76 BB/9 through eight starts this season. The southpaw has posted elite fastball and curveball spin metrics, all while pitching to contact and avoiding walks. He has been one of the most reliable pitchers in MLB as of late and should be started in 100 percent of fantasy leagues.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias has been strong through six starts to begin the season, with a 2.10 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 23 strikeouts in 30 innings pitched. He's currently on a three-game quality start streak and has yet to allow more than three earned runs in an outing. There could be some warning signs underneath those strong statistics, however, as his 6.90 K/9 would be his lowest rate since 2017, and his FIP sits at a far less dominant 3.78. It could be a good moment for fantasy managers to sell high on the lefty, though Urias certainly could continue his strong play.
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.
