Marlins right-handed pitching prospect Jose Urena struck out eight batters, scattering three hits and one walk over eight shutout innings for Double-A Jacksonville on Saturday.
Urena struggled in April, as opposing batters hit .330/.376/.515 with a 5.1 K/9 off him, but has done well since, holding opposing batters to a .253/.284/.406 line with a 7.0 K/9. Urena relies on his low-to-mid-90s heat, and can dial it up to 96 when he needs a little extra. He has the potential to be a solid mid-rotation starter, though if he is unable to develop better secondary pitches he could turn into a closer. Jul 27 - 10:44 AM

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Jose Urena from High-A Jupiter.

He's now protected from the Rule 5 Draft. Urena has some of the best upside in the system and held a 3.73 ERA with 107 strikeouts over 149 2/3 frames at Jupiter this season. He's likely to move up to Double-A in 2014.
