  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Stifles Angels for seventh win

    Urquidy (7-3) earned the win over the Angels on Saturday, pitching six innings and allowing one run on two hits and three walks while striking out eight batters.

    Aside from a Taylor Ward solo home run in the third inning, Los Angeles was unable to put any runs on the board against the Houston hurler. Urquidy walked three but also racked up 17 swinging strikes and posted eight punchouts -- his most since May 22. The fourth-year pitcher has given up exactly one run in each of his past three contests, lowering his ERA to 4.15 on the campaign.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Strong showing in no-decision

    Urquidy allowed a run on a hit and three walks while striking out three in seven innings during Sunday's loss to the Yankees. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Urquidy carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning Sunday but was forced to settle for a no-decision after the Astros' bullpen gave up the team's lead in the bottom of the eighth inning. While the right-hander's strikeout total remained limited, he finished with his fourth quality start over his last five outings. Over those five starts, Urquidy has posted a 3.68 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 29.1 innings. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Angels on Saturday.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Picks up sixth win

    Urquidy (6-3) earned the win Tuesday over the Mets. He allowed a run on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings.

    Urquidy didn't allow a run until the sixth inning, which came via a Pete Alonso solo home run. This was Urquidy's fourth quality start in his last six outings. He's still giving up a homer per start, having now allowed 13 long balls across 67.1 innings this season. The right-hander has a 4.68 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 52:13 K:BB in 13 starts, and he lines up for a tough road start versus the Yankees this weekend.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Posts quality start

    Urquidy gave up three earned runs on five hits and no walks with four strikeouts in a 4-3 win over the Rangers on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Urquidy pitched his first road quality start of the year in Arlington on Tuesday. However, his 6.34 xERA on the season doesn't offer much hope that his ratios will drop down to anywhere near where they were last year, when he posted a 3.62 ERA in 107 innings. Urquidy is in line for two challenging starts next week against the formidable Mets and Yankees offenses.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Struggles with command in loss

    Urquidy (5-3) took the loss Wednesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.1 innings against the Mariners. He struck out three.

    Urquidy allowed at least one baserunner in every inning, but he was able to avoid any major damage until Cal Raleigh and Ty France hit home runs in the fourth to give the Mariners a 4-3 lead. The right-hander continues to offer mixed results, allowing one or fewer runs in four starts but giving up at least five in three appearances. Across 11 starts and 55.1 innings, Urquidy sports a 5.04 ERA and 43:12 K:BB.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Fans six in win

    Urquidy (5-2) allowed three runs on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts in six innings, earning the win over the Royals on Friday.

    Urquidy had a very strong game going before yielding a three-run homer to Bobby Witt in the sixth inning. The right-hander has now won three of his last four starts, but he's given up 35 hits in 22.1 innings in that span. For the season, Urquidy has posted a 4.76 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 40:8 K:BB across 51 innings in 10 starts. He'll look to build off of Friday's positive game in his next scheduled start, tentatively set for a home outing versus the Mariners next week.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Goes 4.2 innings in loss

    Urquidy (4-2) took the loss during Saturday's 6-0 loss to Seattle, allowing six runs (five earned) on 12 hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 4.2 innings.

    Urquidy surrendered runs in four of his five innings while putting a season-high 14 runners on base. The poor start comes on the heels of arguably the 26-year-old's best performance, and he's now failed to surpass five innings in six of his nine starts. He'll carry a 4.80 ERA and bottom-five 1.58 WHIP into another start next weekend against Kansas City.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Whiffs 10 in win

    Urquidy (4-1) earned the win during Sunday's 5-2 victory over Texas, allowing one run on six hits and a walk with 10 strikeouts in 6.2 innings.

    Urquidy was dominant all game and made only one mistake that resulted in a Mitch Garver solo home run. The big developments here are the 20 swinging strikes and 10 strikeouts, as the 26-year-old had only recorded a total of 20 whiffs during his first 33.1 innings across seven turns. He'll look to keep the hot hand going against Seattle next weekend.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Wins despite heavy traffic on bases

    Urquidy (3-1) got the win during Tuesday's 13-4 victory over Boston, allowing four runs on 12 hits and one walk with one strikeout in five innings.

    Urquidy didn't have his best stuff Tuesday but was bailed out by Houston's offense scoring nine runs in the second inning. The 26-year-old surrendered a season-high 12 hits -- including multiple in each of his five frames -- but was able to strand eight baserunners, which allowed him to go the minimum for the victory on 99 pitches. The outing inflated Urquidy's ERA to 4.81 and a 6.28 xERA portends negative regression ahead, potentially as soon as a tentative second start this week against the Rangers on Sunday.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Outing shortened due to rain

    Urquidy allowed one run on three hits across three innings during Wednesday's 11-3 win over the Twins. He struck out three and walked zero.

    Urquidy allowed doubles to Max Kepler and Jorge Polanco during the first inning, resulting in his only earned run. However, the right-hander's outing was cut short when the contest was suspended due to inclement weather at the end of the third inning. Urquidy's next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's matchup in Boston.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Six scoreless innings

    Urquidy allowed six hits and one walk in six scoreless innings, striking out three in a 3-2 win Thursday over Detroit. He did not factor into the decision.

    While Urquidy allowed more than a baserunner per inning, only two managed to reach scoring position. With just three strikeouts, he held the Tigers scoreless while relying on his defense to make plays. It was the best start of the year for the 27-year-old and the first time he lasted six innings. Urquidy has walked only four batters in 25.2 innings, slightly better than his career rate of 1.7 walks per nine innings.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Earns win in shaky outing

    Urquidy (2-1) allowed four runs on one walk and seven hits over five innings Friday, striking out six and earning a win over Toronto.

    Urquidy coughed up an RBI double to Raimel Tapia in the second inning but most of the damage against him came via Vladimir Guerrero's three-run shot in the third. The 26-year-old saw his ERA climb to 5.95 through 19.2 innings on the year. On the bright side, he struck out a season-high six batters after entering Friday with just seven in three starts. Urquidy is expected to host the Tigers next week.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Limits damage against Jays

    Urquidy allowed two earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three across 5.2 innings Saturday against the Blue Jays. He did not factor into the decision.

    Urquidy appeared to be in for a long outing after he surrendered a home run to the first batter he faced. After laboring through the rest of the first inning, he faced the minimum number of batters through his next four frames. As is typical, Urquidy didn't miss a ton of bats, instead relying on inducing poor quality of contact. That approach has largely served serve him well early on this season, as he's turned in a pair of outings that have lasted at least five innings with two or fewer earned runs allowed.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Hit hard by Mariners

    Urquidy (1-1) took the loss during Sunday's 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Mariners, allowing six runs on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts in four innings.

    Urquidy permitted one run in the first before surrendering five in the fourth, capped by a Ty France three-run homer. Though it's early, the 26-year-old's strikeout total is noticeably down with just four whiffs through nine innings in two starts thus far. He's set to square off against Toronto on Saturday for his next start.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Wins 2022 debut

    Urquidy (1-0) registered the victory in Sunday's 4-1 triumph over the Angels, allowing one run on four hits with two strikeouts across five innings.

    Urquidy surrendered the lone run on a Jack Mayfield solo shot in the second inning and was able to escape trouble in third when Kyle Tucker threw out Tyler Wade at the plate to end the inning. He was efficient, needing just 72 pitches to navigate five frames, but manager Dusty Baker opted to pull the righty rather than have him go through the order for a third time. The 26-year-old looks to build on a strong 2021 and 2022 in his next start in Seattle on Sunday.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Starting Game 2

    Urquidy will start Game 2 of the World Series against Atlanta on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Urquidy was awful in his lone start thus far this postseason, giving up six runs (five earned) while recording just five outs in Game 3 of the ALCS against Boston. He'll be moved ahead of Luis Garcia nonetheless, though that's not necessarily a vote of confidence in Urquidy. The Game 2 starter can be pulled early more easily, as Thursday's off day means the Astros will get to rest their bullpen after the game, while the Game 3 starter may be asked to provide more length with the teams scheduled to play on each of the following two days.
