Urena blanked the Braves for the first six innings before they finally got to him in the seventh. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.64 and completed the sixth for the second straight time. He now has not been on the losing side of a decision in more than a month, with his last loss coming on May 17, but has allowed 19 runs in those six starts (30.1 innings).
Urena (5-2) allowed one run on three hits and a walk while striking our four over six innings in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the A's.
After delivering quality starts in his first two outings after moving into the rotation, Urena had failed to complete six innings in any of his previous five starts before Tuesday's effort. He's still won his last four decisions, however, and the 25-year-old's 4.19 ERA and 1.26 WHIP as a starter are serviceable numbers in deeper fantasy formats. He'll next take the mound Sunday in Atlanta.
Urena (4-2) allowed three runs on three hits and three walks over five innings Wednesday, striking out five Cubs in a 6-5 win.
With his ERA now up to 3.96, his WHIP up to 1.36 and his K/9 a miserable 5.68, Urena is barely clinging to the outer fringes of fantasy relevance. The peripherals have been suggesting that his numbers are going to take a turn for the worse, and that's just what's been happening recently, as he's given up six homers and 16 runs in his last 19.1 innings. Urena won't always be this bad, but it's quite clear that there was a healthy dose of luck mixed into the 1.91 ERA he posted through his first nine starts.
Urena (3-3) allowed five runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out one over 4.1 innings, but didn't factor into the decision Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Urena was provided a four-run the lead in the first inning, but squandered it away and lost a great opportunity to pick up a victory. This was the second time in his last six starts that he's allowed opponents to score more than two runs, and with a 3.80 ERA on the year, he's a useful though inconsistent fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Cubs.
Urena (3-2) allowed two runs on three hits and six walks while striking out seven batters through five innings during Sunday's win over Los Angeles.
While the free passes were concerning, allowing just three hits softened that blow, and the righty had issued just eight walks through 22.2 innings over his first four starts this season. Urena owns a 3.58 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 6.2 K/9 through five starts, however, his 5.48 FIP during that stretch jumps off the page. The eye test suggests Urena is still very raw and has some work ahead to fine-tune his craft. His mid-90s heat is a tremendous asset, though, so there is potential. Urena lines up to face the Diamondbacks at Marlins Park next.
