SP,RP - HOU - IL10
Jose Urquidy has been placed on the ten-day IL for undisclosed reasons, per manager Dusty Baker. He has not yet reported to camp.
Urquidy was slated to be the Astros' number four starter, but he will not be ready for Opening Day. Keep an eye out for updates over the coming days, but he's no more than an SP6/7 at this point.
Jose Urquidy is not yet present at Astros summer camp.
Manager Dusty Baker says Urquidy and teammate Yordan Alvarez have yet to arrive due to a “condition that is preventing them from reporting to the field.” The 25-year-old starter certainly has some fantasy appeal if he were to be given a rotation spot. However, with Opening Day on July 24th it appears unlikely that Urquidy will be ready by then.
Jose Urquidy struck out four and allowed two hits over three innings of work in relief Tuesday against the Cardinals.
Urquidy threw a total of 144 innings last year, getting 41 of those innings with the Astros returning a 2-1 record and 3.95 ERA. He offers four pitches, excellent command, and is worth a late pick in drafts as the Astros fourth starter.
Jose Urquidy (2-1) allowed three hits and a walk while striking out two through six scoreless innings in Friday’s 4-0 win over the Angels. He earned his second win of the season.
Urquidy has allowed only three runs over his last 18 innings. He finishes the regular season with a 3.95 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 40:7 K:BB in 41 innings this season.
Jose Urquidy allowed one run on one hit and a walk while striking out 10 through five innings in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Athletics. He did not factor into the decision.
Urquidy's only hit allowed was a solo home run to Marcus Semien in the fourth inning. Urquidy was brilliant in his spot start, but will presumably shift back to the bullpen. He owns a 4.78 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 34:6 K:BB in seven major-league outings this season.
