Marlins recalled RHP Jose Urena from Triple-A New Orleans.

It could be a brief stay for Urena, as he's taking David Phelps' spot while Phelps is on paternity leave. Urena would be making his major league debut if he gets into a game.

Marlins optioned RHP Jose Urena to Triple-A New Orleans.

Urena tossed two scoreless innings in his lone appearance this spring. The 23-year-old needs some more seasoning, as he'll get his first taste of Triple-A in 2015.
Mar 15 - 8:50 AM

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.

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.
