Jose Urena told reporters that he felt "something in his arm" during Wednesday's start against the Giants.
Urena was cruising through the start before needing 39 pitches to get two outs in the sixth inning. As Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports, Urena's velocity didn't waiver, but velocity isn't always a connection to fatigue or an injury. The Marlins will monitor Urena over the coming days, and we should find out more about his status before Saturday. Jun 20 - 8:47 PM

Jose Urena allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

Urena allowed eight hits, and he walked two while striking out five. The right-hander breezed through the first five innings, but gave up five runs in the sixth inning as he struggled against the Giants in their third time seeing him in the game. There have been moments of good for Urena, but there have been just as many -- if not more -- struggles in 2018. He takes a 4.40 ERA into his next start against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Jun 20 - 6:51 PM

Jose Urena delivered a surprisingly outstanding performance in Friday's victory over the Orioles, scattering three hits and a walk over eight shutout innings.

Urena struck out four in the impressive outing. With the victory, he improves to 2-8 on the season to go along with a 4.18 ERA and terrific 1.15 WHIP. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Giants in San Francisco on Wednesday. Given his nice matchup on tap for next week, he's worth a look as a streaming option in all mixed leagues.

Jose Urena allowed three runs over six innings while taking a loss against the Padres on Sunday.

Urena allowed a two-run homer to Eric Hosmer, but outside of that mistake, he was solid with no walks and five strikeouts. While the right-hander has been disappointing, he's pitched better than his 1-8 record and 4.59 ERA might indicate. There's still long-term value, even if this is a bit of a lost season. He'll look to change minds when he's on the mound against the Orioles on Friday.
Jun 10 - 3:37 PM

Jose Urena gave up four runs on 10 hits and a walk but managed to collect his first victory of the season in the Marlins’ 7-4 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Urena hasn’t been bad this season but entered the night with a 0-7 record. Naturally, his first win comes in one of his worst showings of the season. The 10 hits he allowed was a season high, and it was his shortest outing since April. Still, it was about time that the Marlins’ offense bailed him out. Urena will take on the Padres at home on Sunday.
Jun 5 - 11:44 PM

Jose Urena allowed one earned run, three hits and two walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday in San Diego.

Urena threw 55 of his 93 pitches for strikes as he lowered his ERA from 4.69 to 4.41. Urena deserved a better fate as he tries to notch his first victory of the season, but Brad Ziegler came on and blew the save to take the win out of Urena's pocket. He slipped to 0-7 despite a mediocre 4.41 ERA and a decent 1.17 WHIP. He'll look for better luck on the road next Tuesday in St. Louis. Avoid him in all but the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues.
May 31 - 12:41 AM

Jose Urena yielded four runs over six innings in a no-decision Friday against the Nationals.

The damage came via the long ball, as Urena served up a two-run homer to Michael Taylor in the second inning and another two-run blast to Matt Adams in the sixth. He struck out seven and walked one in the no-decision. Urena remains stuck at 0-7 on the year to go along with a 4.69 ERA. He has a decent chance at his first win with a matchup against the Padres next week in San Diego.
May 25 - 11:41 PM

Jose Urena surrendered four runs on five hits over six innings in Saturday's loss to the Braves.

Urena struck out two and walked one over his six innings of work. All four runs on his line scored in the fifth inning. Just three of his 10 starts this season have seen him allow fewer than three runs and he's currently the owner of an 0-7 record. As if he needed it, he's got a a difficult one in front of him next -- at home against the Nationals. Urena will bring a 4.55 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45/14 K/BB ratio (57 1/3 innings) into that contest.
May 19 - 9:45 PM

Jose Urena picked up his sixth loss of the season by allowing three runs in six innings against the Braves on Sunday.

Urena allowed four hits, and outside of a two-run homer by Ender Inciarte, the right-hander pitched relatively well against a pretty good Atlanta lineup. Urena now possesses a 4.38 ERA on the year, and his record falls to 0-6 on the season. He'll attempt to pick up his first win and lower that ERA in a rematch with the Braves on Saturday.
May 13 - 4:07 PM

Jose Urena pitched very well but took a loss anyway, allowing two runs -- one earned -- in seven innings to the Phillies on Wednesday.

He served up a solo shot to the first batter he faced in the ballgame but settled down to turn in a quality start. He allowed an unearned run in the second inning when he threw away a comebacker. Urena became the second pitcher this year to lose five games (Kendall Graveman was the first) and has yet to win one of his seven starts. He has a 4.28 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 40 innings.
May 2 - 10:47 PM

Jose Urena fired seven innings of one-run ball, but was handed a tough-luck loss Friday against the Rockies.

Oddly enough, the only damage came on an RBI double from pitcher Antonio Senzatela. While Urena fell to 0-4 on the year, it was an impressive outing. He held the Rockies to six hits while walking one (intentional) and striking out five. He threw an efficient 98 pitches and delivered first-pitch strikes to 20 out of the 26 batters he faced. Urena owns a 4.91 ERA through six starts this year, two of them very good and four not-so-good. He’ll try for the former next week against the Phillies.
Apr 27 - 11:07 PM

Jose Urena surrendered four runs on four hits over five innings while taking a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Brewers.

Urena struck out three and walked two on the evening. Travis Shaw burned him for a solo home run in the second inning, while two more runs crossed the plate in the fourth inning and one more in the fifth inning. The hard-throwing right-hander has now allowed at least four runs in three of five starts this season. He'll carry a bloated 5.88 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into a home showdown with the Rockies next time out.
Apr 21 - 10:55 PM

Jose Urena fell to 0-3 by giving up four runs in five innings in a loss to the Pirates on Sunday.

Urena gave up eight hits, and he walked one while striking out five. Outside of a strong outing against the Red Sox in his second outing, Urena has struggled to locate, and his ERA has ballooned to 5.57 season. It's very early, but this hasn't been a very good followup to his solid 2017 campaign. He'll try and bounce back on Saturday against the Brewers in Milwaukee.
Apr 15 - 4:24 PM

Jose Urena bounced back from a miserable Opening Day start to limit the Red Sox to one run over seven innings Tuesday.

Urena allowed four hits, walked one and struck out seven, tying his career high. Although Urena went 14-6 with a 3.82 ERA last season, we're skeptical that he'll be of any use in mixed leagues this year.
Apr 3 - 11:03 PM

Jose Urena struggled in his Opening Day assignment against the Cubs on Thursday, allowing five runs over four innings of work.

Urena gave up a leadoff homer to Ian Happ on the first pitch of the ballgame and he appeared rattled after that. He ended up giving up three runs in the first inning, which included a couple of hit batsman. He hit three batters on the afternoon while giving up two homers and walking four batters (two intentional). Urena posted a 3.82 ERA in 28 starts and six relief appearances last season, but his peripherals indicate that it’s not a good idea to bank on a repeat.
