Fantasy Impact:

Urias was expected to begin the year in the bullpen to help manage his innings. The Dodgers are dealing with injuries to both Clayton Kershaw and Rich Hill, however, so Urias is an obvious candidate to serve as the team's fifth starter for now. Los Angeles doesn't need a fifth starter for a while, though, so Urias could get some relief appearances in before making his first start. Either way he's an exciting arm to own in deeper leagues.
