Urquidy has been promoted to Triple-A Round Rock, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Urquidy was the Opening Day starter for Double-A Corpus Christi, for whom he went 2-2 with a 4.09 ERA while striking out 40 in 33 innings. The 24-year-old right-hander has been with the organization since 2015 and pitched effectively during his first two years, but he disappeared after 2016 due to Tommy John elbow surgery. He returned midseason last year, and 2019 is his first full season since the surgery.
