Jose Urena had another rough outing on Tuesday, allowing seven runs in just four innings pitched against the Diamondbacks.
Urena struggled with his control, issuing three walks, and gave up four hits while only managing to strike out two batters. With this performance, Urena's season ERA climbed to an unsightly 7.45, and his WHIP sits at an equally concerning 1.68. His lack of strikeouts, with a 6.0 K/9, and a poor 1.37 strikeout-to-walk ratio further highlight his struggles. Fantasy owners should continue to steer clear of Urena until he shows signs of improvement.
Urena has struggled this season as he owns an 7.27 ERA and a 1.67 WHIP through seven starts.
While his performance in this game was an improvement, his 1.50 strikeout-to-walk ratio indicates that there is still work to be done. Fantasy managers should approach Urena with caution until he can consistently deliver quality outings.
In Thursday's game, Urena allowed six earned runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings, striking out eight and issuing no walks.
With an 8.48 ERA and 1.88 WHIP on the season, Urena's struggles continue, making him a risky option for fantasy owners. His lack of wins and high loss total further dampen his fantasy outlook.
Free agent pitcher Jose Urena has signed a minor-league deal with the Washington Nationals.
Urena was designated for assignment by the Rockies last week and has landed with the Nationals on a minor-league deal. Coors Field wasn't the greatest of homes for Urena considering his home run issues and indeed he allowed a whopping nine home runs in 18 1/3 innings on the season to go along with a 9.82 ERA. He should be able to help the Nats eat some innings as they continue their rebuild in 2023.
The Colorado Rockies have designated pitcher Jose Urena for assignment Tuesday night.
With ace German Marquez set to return from the 15-day injured list, the club needed to make a corresponding move and Urena is the roster casualty. The right-hander predictably struggled with the Rockies, posting a 9.82 ERA alongside a 15.1% BB% that exceeded his tiny 9.7% K%. He also allowed an eye-popping nine homers in just 18 1/3 frames in what surely ends his Rockies tenure.
