Julio Urias (shoulder) recently had his tonsils removed, which has slightly delayed his throwing program.
He should get back to work next week. Urias underwent major shoulder surgery last June and is not expected to be an option for the Dodgers until the second half of the season. He had been playing catch from a distance of 135 feet at last check. Apr 4 - 1:48 PM

Julio Urias' (shoulder) throwing program has progressed to him long-tossing from 120 feet.

He's expected to lengthen it out to 135 feet soon. Urias is coming along nicely in his rehab from shoulder surgery but is not expected to throw off a mound before the end of spring training. It's possible he'll make it back late in the 2018 season, but the Dodgers surely aren't counting on him until 2019.

Dodgers placed LHP Julio Urias on the 60-day disabled list with a torn anterior capsule in his left shoulder.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver claim J.T. Chargois. Urias isn't expected to be ready to pitch until the second half after having shoulder surgery last June.

Julio Urias said Saturday that he's healthy following the surgery in June to repair the anterior capsule in his left shoulder, and that he expects to begin throwing soon.

Urias is expected to be game ready by the second half of the 2018 regular season, but the Dodgers are going to take every possible precaution along the way with their prized 21-year-old southpaw. He's unlikely to have any impact in redraft leagues this season.

Julio Urias said he feels "really good" six weeks removed from major left shoulder surgery.

Urias underwent a procedure in late June to repair the anterior capsule in his throwing shoulder and his rehab is likely to last through much of the 2018 campaign. "I’m thinking positively, 100 percent," the young left-hander told reporters on Wednesday. "I’m thinking about coming back and thinking I may be even better if I put in the work. I’m not worried about being the same player, coming back the same way. I’m just being positive and getting my work in."

Julio Urias underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the left anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder.

He also had a debridgement, and the operation went as expected. Urias is looking at a long road back, as his rehab is expected to take 12-14 months. The Dodgers probably won't really be counting on him again until 2019, and even by then he's no guarantee with the sketchy nature of shoulder surgeries.

Julio Urias will undergo surgery to repair the left anterior capsule in his pitching shoulder.

The surgery will be performed by Dr. Neal El Attrache. It's a major procedure which will keep him sidelined for 12-14 months. Urias might not be a factor again until well into the second half next year. Brutal news for the 20-year-old.

Julio Urias will have his ailing left shoulder examined further this weekend in Los Angeles.

An MRI last week showed no structural damage, but Urias' shoulder is still bothering him and Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times writes that "there is a heightened level of concern about the severity" of the injury. That obviously doesn't sound good, but we'll know more about Urias' condition this weekend.

An MRI taken Wednesday on Julio Urias' left shoulder came up negative for structural damage.

Great news. Urias has some inflammation in the shoulder and has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Oklahoma City, but he should be fine after a couple weeks of rest. The young left-hander figures to rejoin the Dodgers' starting rotation sometime after the All-Star break, assuming all goes well. He had posted a 3.12 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 17 1/3 innings (three starts) since his May 21 demotion.

Julio Urias (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo an MRI.

Urias was placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Oklahoma City due to left shoulder discomfort earlier on Wednesday. While the injury is not viewed as a serious one, the Dodgers are putting in their due diligence with the MRI just to make sure there is no structural damage. In three starts since being demoted to the minors on May 21, Urias had posted a 3.12 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 17 1/3 innings.

Julio Urias has been placed on the disabled list at Triple-A Oklahoma City with left shoulder discomfort.

OKC manager Bill Haselman said the issue is not considered serious, but Urias will likely be run through a range of tests and scans. The young southpaw had posted a 3.12 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 17 1/3 innings (three starts) at Triple-A since his May 21 demotion. Look for an update this weekend.

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.

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.

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.

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.
