Jose Urena surrendered three runs in 5 1/3 innings and did not factor into the decision as his club beat the Rockies on Friday.

He scattered six hits and a walk but couldn't keep the ball in the yard. All three runs came via the longball -- a two-run shot by Nolan Arenado and a solo shot by Gerardo Parra. Urena's record holds at 10-5 with a 3.76 ERA in 25 games (19 starts). He has 82 strikeouts in 119 2/3 innings.

Jose Urena delivered six innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Marlins' 4-1 win over the Braves.

Miami jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the first inning, allowing Urena to cruise comfortably through the Braves' batting order. The young right-hander gave up just three hits and one walk while punching out three, and Atlanta's only run of the afternoon came on a sixth-inning RBI single by Ender Inciarte. Urena is now 10-5 with a 3.70 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and 79/41 K/BB ratio in 114 1/3 innings this season. A start at home against the Rockies comes next.
Aug 6 - 5:01 PM

Jose Urena tossed eight innings of one-run ball Monday in a tough-luck loss against the Nationals.

Urena was terrific, yielding just three hits and one walk against a dangerous Nats offense, but he was out-dueled by veteran left-hander Gio Gonzalez, who carried a no-hitter into the bottom of the ninth inning. Urena stands 9-5 with a 3.82 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 76/40 K/BB ratio over 108 1/3 innings this season. He'll face the Braves on the road next.
Jul 31 - 9:31 PM

Jose Urena picked up his ninth victory of the season on Wednesday despite allowing five runs on four hits over his five frames.

Urena also issued four walks while striking out five on the night. Thankfully, the Marlins provided him with a bushel of run support and all he needed to do was avoid a disaster to earn the victory. He'll bring a 4.04 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Monday's matchup against the Nationals.
Jul 27 - 12:17 AM

Jose Urena held the Reds to just one run over six-plus frames as part of a 3-1 victory on Friday.

The lone run scored on a sacrifice fly. Urena went back out for the seventh inning, but he was pulled after the first two batters reached base. He fanned four and walked a pair in the victory and now sits at 8-4 with a 3.78 ERA and 65/35 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings this season. He gets the Rangers next on the road.
Jul 22 - 12:21 AM

Jose Urena allowed five runs on seven hits over three innings of work in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

The Dodgers socked a pair of homers against Urena, and he also walked three in the loss. He was also in the middle of a flare-up in the third inning when a pitch ran inside on Yasiel Puig, incensing Puig and causing players to leave the bench area, if only briefly and with little consequence. The 25-year-old's brilliant start to the year has come back down to earth in recent weeks, and Urena is now 7-4 with a 3.93 ERA and 1.29 WHIP on the year. His next start will come Friday at the Reds.
Jul 15 - 11:39 PM

Jose Urena gave up three earned runs over five innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Giants.

Miami wound up winning the game 10-8 in 11 innings, well after Urena had departed. The young right-hander walked one and surrendered five hits, including homers to Brandon Crawford and Nick Hundley. Urena finishes the first half of the 2017 season with a 3.54 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 58/30 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings.
Jul 9 - 8:27 PM

Jose Urena held the Cardinals to two runs over five innings Tuesday for his seventh victory.

Urena carried a no-hitter into the bottom of the fifth, when Paul DeJong hit a leadoff single and Greg Garcia followed with a two-run homer. Miami's offense answered with five runs in the top of the sixth to steal the win in St. Louis. Urena struck out seven and yielded just three hits in all. He boasts a 3.43 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 55 strikeouts through 81 1/3 innings this season.
Jul 4 - 5:37 PM

Jose Urena allowed five runs -- three earned -- on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.

Urena allowed three doubles among his six hits but didn't issue a walk while striking out four. The final line looks bad, but truthfully it was another pretty good turn from the 25-year-old, who has largely been a revelation in the Marlins' rotation. Urena now owns a 3.42 ERA in 17 games, including 11 starts, and he'd won his last five decisions prior to Thursday. Urena will look to get back in the win column Tuesday against the Cardinals.
Jun 29 - 10:21 PM

Jose Urena was outstanding in Friday's victory over the Cubs, scattering five hits over six shutout innings.

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. He'll look to replicate this fine performance when he does battle against the Mets on Thursday.
Jun 23 - 10:03 PM

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.
