Marlins placed RHP Jose Urena on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee contusion.

It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined. Adam Conley figures to assume Urena's spot in the Marlins' rotation.

Jose Urena was pulled after giving up five runs in two innings Thursday against the Braves.

Urena gave up six hits and struck out none. He now has a 21/18 K/BB ratio in 49 1/3 innings on the season. The Marlins might want to have him switch roles with Adam Conley going forward, putting him in the pen for the rest of the month, if not the rest of the season.

Jose Urena struggled in Saturday's loss to the Padres, allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits over five innings.

Urena is getting a chance in the rotation thanks to trades that sent starters Mat Latos and Dan Haren to points elsewhere. It was tough sledding on Saturday. The Padres scored a run in the first inning, then pounced on Urena for three more in the third. Prior to the start, he held a 4.04 ERA across 42 1/3 major league innings. The 23-year-old right-hander owns a 21/17 K/BB ratio and shouldn't be trusted for fantasy purposes at this juncture. A road date with the Braves is up next as he tries to acclimate to the regular starting gig.

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

He'll rejoin the rotation following the trade of Mat Latos and Dan Haren. Urena has put up a 4.04 ERA in 42 1/3 innings for the big club this season.

Marlins RHP prospect Jose Urena threw a shutout Saturday in his return to Triple-A New Orleans.

He was optioned to New Orleans Thursday to make room for Jose Fernandez. Urena allowed just five hits and one walk over nine brilliant innings. The 23-year-old hasn't been a big strikeout pitcher this season (26 Ks in 46 1/3 minor league innings) but he's held opponents to a paltry .221 average in 163 at-bats. He should get another chance with the Marlins later this year.

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

Urena is giving up his rotation spot to Jose Fernandez, who is due to return from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery on Thursday. Urena posted a decent 4.04 ERA in 42 1/3 innings. He'll get another look soon.

Jose Urena pitched well but suffered a loss on Sunday against the Dodgers after giving up a lone run in five innings.

Urena had the unenviable task of matching up with Zack Greinke. He relented his only run in the fifth inning on a ground out, which was more than enough run support for Greinke. On the afternoon, Urena gave up four hits and walked four while striking out four. Keeping the theme of fours going, he owns a 4.04 ERA with a 1.42 WHIP and a 19/17 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings. Urena may be edged out of the rotation. If he isn't, he's on schedule to make a Wrigley Field start next weekend.

Jose Urena will start against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Urena gave up three runs over five innings in his last turn Tuesday against the Cardinals and owns a 4.34 ERA and 15/13 K/BB ratio in 37 1/3 innings over his first six starts and two relief appearances in the majors. The Marlins' rotation is about to get very crowded, so this could be his last start for a while.

Jose Urena allowed three runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Urena gave up six hits and three walks, with all three of the Cardinals' runs coming in the fourth inning. The five-inning start snapped a stretch of four straight quality starts for Urena, who now owns a 4.34 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. He's got another tough test on deck Sunday against the Dodgers.

Jose Urena surrendered two runs in six innings Wednesday verses the Yankees.

Urena succeeded even though just 50 of his 96 pitches were strikes. He walked four and struck out one. Urena is probably going to return to Triple-A soon with the Marlins rotation getting healthy again, but he'll probably make several starts in the second half anyway. Right now, he's 1-3 with a 4.18 ERA.

Making his third career start in the majors, Jose Urena pitched six innings of one-run ball in Sunday's no-decision against the Rockies.

Urena's in the rotation thanks to a slew of injuries (Jarred Cosart, Henderson Alvarez and Mat Latos are all on the disabled list at the moment). He's shown improvement in each of his three starts and against the Rockies, struck out four and walked two while allowing just three hits. The lone run to score against him came on a sacrifice fly by Nolan Arenado in the fourth inning. The 23-year-old posted a 1.21 ERA and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings at Triple-A prior to his call-up. He'll face the Rockies again in his next start, which should make for an interesting match-up, as we'll get to see how Urena adjusts to facing the same team in consecutive starts.

Jose Urena, making his second career start in the majors, notched a quality start but lost after giving up three runs in six innings to the Cubs on Monday.

Urena was immediately in trouble in the first inning, allowing the first three batters he faced to reach base, but he was able to rebound and limit the Cubs to only two runs. He allowed only four hits on the night while walking three and striking out four. Urena can be ignored for fantasy purposes for now. He'll make his next start at Coors Field against the Rockies.

Jose Urena gave up five runs in 4 2/3 innings of work, taking the loss against the Pirates in his first major league start.

Urena made his major league debut out of the bullpen on April 14 but was recently recalled as the Marlins are dealing with a slew of injuries in their starting rotation. He gave up 10 hits overall, including a home run to Neil Walker, while walking one and striking out three. Urena will face the Cubs at home in his next start.

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

Jarred Cosart (vertigo), Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) and Mat Latos (knee) have all landed on the disabled list over the past week, so Urena will join the Marlins' rotation and start against the Pirates on Tuesday. The 23-year-old right-hander owns a 1.21 ERA and 22/12 K/BB ratio over 37 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A. He's not a consideration in mixed fantasy leagues right now.
