LHP Julio Urias was handed a no-decision on Thursday when he surrendered five runs (four earned) on seven hits with two walks and six strikeouts over six innings in the Dodgers 7-5 win over the Rockies.
Urias served up two solo home runs in the first two innings to Ryan McMahon and Garrett Hampson, respectively. He then settled down before allowing a pair of RBI singles in the sixth inning that allowed three runs to score, assisted by a Chris Taylor throwing error. He exited the game with the Dodgers trailing 5-3 but the mighty LA offense picked him up. Urias will carry his 3.86 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 15:3 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings into his next start in Seattle vs. the Mariners.
LHP Julio Urias picked up his second win of the season when he allowed three runs on nine hits with three strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a 9-5 win over the Nationals on Saturday.
Urias ran into some trouble from the outset when he allowed three singles and a run in the first inning. The frame could have got out of hand but Zach McKinstry threw out Ryan Zimmerman who was attempting to reach third base off a Starlin Castro single that also scored Juan Soto. Urias settled down after that and didn't allow another run until Juan Soto's solo home run in the sixth inning. Yan Gomes picked up an RBI single in the same inning and Urias was lifted at 5 2/3 innings. he induced a lot of contact in this one, only striking out three, but didn't walk any batters. The 24-year-old southpaw now owns a 2.84 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 9:1 K/BB ratio to begin the season. He'll look to pick up his third-straight win vs. the Padres next week.
Julio Urias picked up the win vs. the Rockies on Sunday when he surrendered just one run on three hits with six strikeouts and one walk over seven innings in the Dodgers 4-2 win.
Urias was dominant from the outset on Sunday, needing only 79 pitches--59 strikes--to quiet the Rockies' bats through seven innings of work. His only "mistake" was a leadoff single to Ryan McMahon in the eighth inning, which prompted Dave Roberts to remove him from the game. McMahon would later come around to score after Garrett Hampson laced a double off of Urias' replacement, Jimmy Nelson. The 24-year-old southpaw gets the Nationals at home his next turn. He could be in line for a big season.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says LHP Julio Urias will start the team's fourth game of the season.
Urias will follow Clayton Kershaw, Trevor Bauer, and Walker Buehler in the rotation. No decision has been made yet as to who will be the fifth starter. Urias' first start of the year comes at Coors Field, which isn't ideal. He's still talented enough to deliver a strong performance, but this is something for fantasy managers to keep in mind when filling out their Week 1 lineups.
Julio Urias didn't allow a hit and struck out one over three scoreless innings on Monday vs. the White Sox in Cactus League play.
The 24-year-old southpaw only needed 26 pitches to get through his three innings. Urias was solid for the Dodgers last season when he posted a 3.27 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 45:18 K/BB ratio over 55 innings (10 starts). He really shined during the postseason when he put up a 1.17 ERA across 23 innings (six appearances, two starts). The Dodgers have monitored his workload closely throughout his career so hopefully they're ready to take the reins off him this season.
