The right-hander walked three and struck out three on the night. He has been great through 14 starts for the Fish, compiling a 6-2 record, 3.33 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 44/27 K/BB ratio across 70 1/3 innings.

Jose Urena limited the Braves to two runs over six-plus innings but took a no-decision on Sunday.

Urena yielded just three hits and walked two while working into the seventh inning, but the Marlins' bullpen ruined his shot at a win. Urena now boasts a 3.64 ERA and 1.24 ERA in 13 starts this season for Miami and he hasn't taken a loss since May 17. He'll try to keep it all working in his next start at home against the Cubs.
Jun 18 - 4:34 PM

Jose Urena pitched six innings of one-run ball to beat the A's on Tuesday.

Urena has a decent 4.19 ERA in eight starts since moving into the rotation, but it's been against a rather weak schedule and he's posted a subpar 29/19 K/BB ratio in 43 innings. Maybe he'll remain serviceable, but there isn't much fantasy potential here.
Jun 13 - 10:44 PM

Jose Urena gave up three runs in five innings and earned a win against the Cubs on Wednesday.

He walked three batters and whiffed five. The Cubs managed just three hits against him but they all went for extra bases and produced runs. He gave up a two-run double to Anthony Rizzo in the third inning and a solo homer to Ian Happ in the fifth. Urena moves to 4-2 with a 3.96 ERA despite a shaky 33/21 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 52 1/3 innings.
Jun 8 - 1:06 AM

Jose Urena was tagged for five runs in 4 1/3 innings Friday versus the Diamondbacks.

Urena gave up a two-run homer to Paul Goldschmidt in the third inning before completely unraveling in the fifth. He allowed nine hits in all while walking one and striking out one. The 25-year-old started his stint in the rotation strong and still owns a decent 3.80 ERA on the year, but the home run ball has hurt him recently and the secondary numbers don’t bode well for fantasy success moving forward.
Jun 3 - 12:01 AM

Jose Urena held the Angels to two earned runs over five innings Sunday for his third win.

Urena issued six walks but allowed only three hits and struck out seven, and he was backed by nine runs from the Marlins offense. The right-hander is now 3-2 with a 3.14 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 27/17 K/BB ratio over 43 innings (five starts, six relief appearances) this season for Miami. He'll get the Diamondbacks at home next.
May 28 - 4:55 PM

Jose Urena allowed six earned runs, four hits and two walks with three strikeouts over five innings in a win Tuesday in Oakland.

Urena was staked to a 7-1 lead through three innings and he did his best to fritter away the huge cushion. Manager Don Mattingly let him stick around long enough to qualify for the win, but the real heroes in the game were on the Miami offense. Six Marlins recorded two or more hits.
May 24 - 2:51 AM

Jose Urena allowed three runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Astros.

Urena didn't pitch terribly and was victimized by some shaky defense, though Lance McCullers thoroughly out-dueled him in this one. Urena struck out three, walked two, and gave up six hits. He boasts a 1.91 ERA in 33 total innings this season but a record of 1-2.
May 17 - 3:10 PM

Jose Urena took the loss after allowing two runs over six innings against the Braves on Friday.

The only damage was a two-run homer off the bat of Tyler Flowers in the second inning. He gave up six hits in all while walking three and striking out four. The 25-year-old has pitched well since joining the Marlins’ rotation and lines up for a start against the first-place Astros next week.
May 12 - 10:48 PM

Jose Urena spun six scoreless innings Sunday in the Marlins' defeat of the Mets.

Urena was working on a no-hitter until Rene Rivera opened the bottom of the sixth inning with a single to left field. That was the only hit allowed by the 25-year-old right-hander, who now boasts a 1.69 ERA through 21 1/3 innings (one start, six relief appearances) this season. There should be more starts in his future.
May 7 - 4:01 PM

Jose Urena will start on Sunday versus the Mets.

He's taking Edinson Volquez's (blister) spot. The hope is that Volquez will miss only one turn, so it looks like just a spot start for Urena.
May 5 - 5:44 PM

Jose Urena pitched two scoreless innings out of the pen Tuesday, lowering his ERA to 2.51.

If Edinson Volquez's blister pushes him to the disabled list, Urena would be a candidate to take his spot in the rotation. He still wouldn't be a particularly good bet in NL-only leagues, though.
May 3 - 12:11 AM

Jose Urena was outstanding in Friday's Grapefruit League victory over the Nationals, scattering three hits over four shutout innings.

The right-hander punched out five and didn't issue a walk in the contest. While he came into camp likely to make the Opening Day bullpen as a middle reliever, it appears as though Urena could open the season in the starting rotation. He could be worth a late-round flier in NL-only formats.
Mar 25 - 12:13 AM

Despite four walks and four hits allowed, Jose Urena was able to blank the Mets for 4 1/3 innings in his start Sunday.

That's a big improvement over last two out, when he gave up six runs in 2 2/3 innings against the Tigers. Urena, who is out of options, is expected to make the Marlins as a middle reliever.
Mar 19 - 5:24 PM

Jose Urena was tagged for six runs and seven hits in 2 2/3 innings out of the pen Tuesday against the Tigers.

Urena is out of options, so his disappointing spring isn't likely to cost him his roster spot. Still, some improvement is necessary if he's going to be more than a mop-up man early on. He has a 12.71 ERA in 5 2/3 innings.
