Jose Urena held the Mets to two runs over eight innings Wednesday for his 14th win of the year.

Urena posted zeros until the top of the fifth inning, when Travis d'Arnaud plated Kevin Plawecki on an RBI single. Brandon Nimmo then hit a solo home run in the top of the seventh. Urena scattered seven hits and struck out three Mets batters while issuing zero walks over his eight strong frames. The 26-year-old right-hander will carry a cool 3.55 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into his next start on the road versus the Rockies.

Jose Urena gave up two runs in 4 2/3 innings without earning a decision as his team got thumped by the Brewers on Friday.

Both runs came on a Stephen Vogt home run in the second inning. Urena burned 101 pitches without making it through five frames. He issued four walks, notched three strikeouts and allowed four hits. He went 1-for-2 with an RBI at the dish. The 26-year-old right-hander has been pretty solid this year despite a mediocre strikeout rate. He has a 13-6 record with a 3.62 ERA in 31 games (25 starts). He's generated 104 strikeouts and 56 walks in 151 2/3 innings.

Jose Urena pitched well in Friday's victory over the Braves, scattering three hits and three walks over 6 1/3 innings of one-run baseball.

Urena struck out five on the night. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer that he gave up to Freddie Freeman in the fourth inning. The right-hander has been mighty impressive for the Marlins this season, compiling a 13-6 record, 3.61 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. He'll look to replicate this fine effort when he takes on the Phillies in Philadelphia on Thursday.

Jose Urena gave up one run in seven innings in a 3-1 extra-innings loss to the Phillies on Sunday.

Urena bounced back nicely from his poor start against the Nationals on Monday, giving up six hits while walking one and striking out three. Unfortunately, the Marlins weren't able to get anything going against Phillies starter Jake Thompson, so he was unable to pick up the W. He'll get another chance for a win on Friday when he takes on the Atlanta lineup.

Jose Urena gave up four runs in four innings Monday in a loss to the Nationals.

It was his shortest start since July 15. Urena was in trouble throughout, allowing five hits (including a two-run homer to Jayson Werth) and three walks. He was pulled after 94 pitches. Suffering his first loss since July 31, Urena now sits at 12-6 with a 3.84 ERA. He’ll get the Phillies next.

Jose Urena improved to 12-5 after allowing three runs in five innings Tuesday against the Phillies.

Urena gave up two more homers tonight, bringing his season total to 19 allowed in 129 2/3 innings. Between that and the 43 walks and 13 hit by pitches, his FIP is right around 5.00, even as his ERA stands at 3.68. We'd suggest mixed leaguers be wary, but he does have the schedule in his favor: he gets the Padres and Phillies (again) his next two times out.

Jose Urena allowed just one (unearned) run over five innings Wednesday in a win over the Giants.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
