    • Urena allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two batters through five innings during Sunday's loss to Atlanta. He didn't factor into the decision. Urena was hit hard at Coors Field in his previous outing, so this checks out as a bounce-back showing to cap off the 2017 campaign. The 26-year-old righty posted a respectable a 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 6.0 K/9 through 169.2 innings this season, and while his strikeout numbers underwhelm, he owns a mid-90s fastball and the supporting pitches to improve in the category. Urena projects to be a serviceable fantasy asset in the majority of fantasy settings again in 2018.

    • Marlins' Jose Urena: Stomped by Rockies on Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Urena (14-7) allowed six runs on nine hits and four walks over five innings Tuesday to take the loss against the Rockies. He struck out four. Trevor Story's three-run blast off Urena in the first inning set the tone in what ended up being a 6-0 defeat for the Marlins. The right-hander will get one more crack at win No. 15 at home in the season finale against the Braves on Sunday.

    • Urena (14-6) held the Mets to two runs on seven hits over eight innings in Wednesday's 9-2 win. He struck out three and walked none. The 26-year-old righty is just going right on with having a lucky season for the ages -- every single one of his peripherals belongs to a pitcher who shouldn't by any rights own a 14-6 record, 3.55 ERA and 1.22 WHIP. His K/9 is pathetic at 6.0; his BB/9 is relatively poor at 3.2 even after this walkless outing; his HR/9 is a pedestrian 1.3. He hasn't particularly excelled at keeping the ball on the ground or preventing hard contact. What the hard-throwing righty has done, though, is ride a .243 BABIP (tied for second-lowest among qualified starters) and 79.6 percent strand rate (seventh among qualified starters) to his best season by far. If you've got him, all you can do right now is enjoy the ride, but expect regression to hit Urena hard next year unless he can refine his control and find a consistent strikeout pitch.

    • Urena allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over 4.2 innings Friday while striking out three, but he didn't factor into the decision in a 10-2 loss to the Brewers. The Marlins' bullpen collapsed in the eighth inning, but Urena was no threat to stick around long enough to get a decision, needing 101 pitches (55 strikes) to get his 14 outs. The right-hander's control is flagging down the stretch, as he now has a 20:13 K:BB in 27 innings over his last five starts, and while he's avoided serious damage so far, fatigue is likely a factor -- the 151.2 innings Urena has tossed in 2017 are the most he's accumulated since he worked 162 in 2014 at Double-A. His next start is scheduled for Wednesday at home against the Mets.

    • Marlins' Jose Urena: Starting Friday now
      By RotoWire Staff

      Urena is scheduled to start Friday's game against the Brewers, Joe Frisaro of reports. He was originally scheduled to start Thursday against the Phillies, but Vance Worley will get the ball in his place. Miami will now start Urena, Adam Conley and Dillon Peters in that order in their weekend series against the Brewers.
