Dodgers optioned LHP Julio Urias to Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Urias gave up 13 runs -- 12 earned -- over his last two starts and holds an 11/14 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings this season. There are bright days ahead for the young southpaw, but the Dodgers are overloaded with rotation options right now so it makes sense to send him back down to iron out his issues. May 21 - 3:00 PM

Julio Urias' locker at Dodger Stadium on Sunday was vacant.

The Dodgers haven't announced any roster move involving Urias yet, but it appears he's probably been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City. The young left-hander has allowed 13 runs -- 12 earned -- over his last two starts and holds an 11/14 K/BB ratio over 23 1/3 innings this season. We should get official word on Urias soon.
May 21 - 1:11 PM

Julio Urias allowed seven runs - six earned - and seven hits with three walks and no strikeouts over 2 1/3 innings in a loss against the Marlins on Saturday.

So much for that sterling 1.06 ERA he just had on May 9. He has been crushed for 12 earned runs, 14 hits and four walks with just one strikeout over his past 6 1/3 innings across two starts. It could be his last start for a while if the team decides he needs more seasoning in the minors or if he is dealing with some type of injury. Either way he shouldn't be touched in most fantasy formats right now.
May 21 - 4:11 AM

Julio Urias surrendered six runs on seven hits over four-plus innings in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Urias took a no-hitter into the seventh inning against the Pirates in his last start, but Sunday saw no such pyrotechnics. Three runs touched home against him in the first inning via RBI hits by Nolan Arenado and Mark Reynolds, with two more scoring in the fourth inning on a Pat Valaika home run. Through four starts, Urias has posted a 3.43 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 11/11 K/BB ratio. A home date with the Marlins shows next on his schedule.
May 14 - 7:06 PM

Julio Urias allowed just one run, one hit and two walks over 6 1/3 innings while striking out five batters in a no-decision Tuesday against the Pirates.

Urias carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning before yielding a clean single to Andrew McCutchen. He finished with 61 strikes on his 95 pitches before giving way to the bullpen. The Mexican southpaw has allowed just two earned runs across 17 innings in three starts, posting a sparkling 1.06 ERA and 1.12 WHIP.
May 10 - 4:42 AM

Julio Urias allowed four hits and four walks over five scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Giants on Wednesday.

Urias threw just 53 of his 88 pitches for strikes but managed to get through five frames unscathed. The southpaw has allowed just one earned run over 10 2/3 innings in two outings so far this season. He is scheduled to face the Pirates next Tuesday, his first appearance of the season against someone other than the Giants.
May 4 - 3:26 AM

Julio Urias was effective in his 2017 debut, allowing one run over 5 2/3 innings against the Dodgers.

He walked four, though the last of those was intentional. It was the one before, a four-pitch walk to Brandon Belt, that helped cost him his chance at a win. He went on to make an errant pickoff throw, putting Belt on third, and he gave up an RBI single to Christian Arroyo to tie the game at 1-1. Still, Urias gave the Dodgers pretty much what they should have been hoping for, and they went to win in extra innings.
Apr 27 - 8:21 PM

Dodgers recalled LHP Julio Urias from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Urias will join the Dodgers' rotation on Thursday against Giants after registering a 1.93 ERA with 15 strikeouts across 14 innings (three starts) this season for OKC. The young left-hander carries some workload limitations and he still has control issues, but the fantasy upside is tremendous. Get him active.
Apr 27 - 1:14 PM

J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports that Julio Urias will be recalled to start Thursday against the Giants.

The signs had been pointing to this week being when Urias makes his season debut for the Dodgers. Slotting him in on Thursday will allow the club to give the struggling Kenta Maeda a little extra rest. Urias posted a 1.93 ERA and 15/9 K/BB ratio over 14 innings in his three starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City. The left-hander faces workload limits and can have control issues, but the upside here is obviously sky-high.
Apr 24 - 7:49 PM

Julio Urias is not listed among Triple-A Oklahoma City's scheduled starting pitchers for the next four games.

Urias last started on Friday, so he should be on the schedule if he's going to be with Oklahoma City. It's another hint that he's probably going to join the Dodgers' rotation this week, which manager Dave Roberts had previously indicated was a possibility. Urias could start as soon as Wednesday. The Dodgers could reveal their plans for the young left-hander later Monday.
Apr 24 - 4:11 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts suggested Julio Urias could start a game in the team’s upcoming series against the Giants.

Urias would likely start on Wednesday in place of Alex Wood, who joined the rotation when Rich Hill (blister) was placed on the disabled list last week. It’s unclear if the plan would be for Urias to simply serve as a placeholder for Hill or if the Dodgers want him to be a permanent fixture in their starting rotation. The 20-year-old hasn’t missed a beat in the minors this year, producing a stellar 1.83 ERA in three starts for Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Apr 22 - 8:42 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Julio Urias will not be an option to start for Rich Hill if the veteran southpaw is forced to miss his next start.

Urias is still being slowly stretched out at Triple-A and won't be ready in time to start next weekend. Expect Alex Wood to get the ball again in the event that Hill's blister prevents him from making his next start.
Apr 16 - 8:05 PM

Julio Urias walked four hitters in just under four innings in his outing Monday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

In his 3 2/3 innings of work, Urias gave up two runs and two hits, and he struck out five. Those four walks are the headline of the story, however. The reports from inside the stadium were that the strike zone wasn't exactly pitcher-friendly, and that Urias was getting flustered by the calls. It's likely he'll make at least one more start at the minor-league level before we see him with the Dodgers, and it could be more.
Apr 10 - 1:38 PM

Julio Urias will make his season debut for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday.

He's slated to throw 3-4 innings as he continues to get stretched out following an abbreviated spring training. The Dodgers haven't revealed a timetable for when Urias will join their rotation, but he'll need at least a couple starts in the minors.
Apr 7 - 12:08 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Tuesday that Julio Urias will make his first start at Triple-A Oklahoma City within the next few days.

Urias wasn't able to get properly stretched out this spring in the Cactus League, so the Dodgers optioned him to Triple-A just before Opening Day. The young left-hander may only need two starts there before he is cleared to join the rotation in Los Angeles. Look for something more official on that plan by this weekend.
