Tigers' Jose Urena: Hasn't progressed to mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (groin) has been throwing flat-ground sessions but hasn't gotten on the mound yet, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Urena went down July 17 with right groin tightness and appears at least a couple weeks from returning. After he eventually begins throwing bullpens from the mound, the righty will still have to face hitters and will likely require a minor-league rehab assignment as well. In 17 starts this season, Urena has pitched 80 innings, posting a 6.19 ERA and 1.65 WHIP.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Heads to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list following Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Twins, Jason Beck of reports.

Groin tightness shortened Urena's start Saturday and will now sideline him for an indefinite period of time. Details and a timeframe for his return should become clear in the coming days.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Exits with groin tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was removed from Saturday's start against the Twins after three innings with right groin tightness, Evan Woodbery of reports.

The righty threw 42 pitches, striking out a pair and allowing two hits in three scoreless frames. Daniel Norris entered in the fourth inning with Detroit leading 1-0. Additional details regarding Urena's condition should become available during or following the Saturday afternoon contest.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Friday's doubleheader postoned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena won't start the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Twins after it was postponed due to inclement weather, Jason Beck of reports.

Urena was poised to start the first game out of the All-Star break for Detroit, but the twin bill was called off due to rain. One of the contests will be made up via a doubleheader Saturday, while the other will be played Aug. 30. The Tigers haven't announced their updated pitching plans, but Urena should still pitch at some point against Minnesota this weekend.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Ineffective again in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena allowed five runs on six hits across 4.2 innings and did not factor into the decision Tuesday against the Rangers. He walked four and struck out three.

Though he avoided losing his ninth game of the season, Urena was once again ineffective for the Tigers. In his last six starts, the righty is 0-4 and has allowed a whopping 30 earned runs in just 22.2 innings. As a result, Urena's ERA has climbed to 6.43, and he simply can't be trusted by fantasy managers right now. He lines up to face the Twins on Sunday in his next scheduled start.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Taken deep four times Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena allowed four runs on five hits across 3.1 innings and did not factor into the decision Wednesday in Game 1 against Cleveland. He walked one and struck out five.

Urena had his start bumped back from Tuesday after that game was rained out, and the righty didn't benefit from the extra rest. He allowed four solo home runs in the first half of the doubleheader and has now given up 11 total long balls this season in 72.1 innings. The struggles keeping the ball in the park have led to a 6.22 ERA for Urena, which isn't a huge surprise considering he posted an ERA above 5.00 each of the last two years. He lines up to start again Monday against Texas, and fantasy managers should tread lightly given the 29-year-old's current form.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Tuesday's start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena won't pitch as scheduled Tuesday against Cleveland since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

The contest will be made up as part of a doubleheader Wednesday. Urena will start Game 1 of the twin bill while Wednesday's originally scheduled starter, Wily Peralta, starts the nightcap.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (2-8) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Astros after surrendering six runs (four earned) on eight hits and a pair of walks while striking out one across 3.2 innings.

It started off with a five-pitch first inning, but things went downhill from there. While the 29-year-old managed to keep the ball in the park, he couldn't find a way to silence Houston's bats as he got hammered for the third straight game. Urena has now given up 21 runs (18 earned) over his past three starts (9.2 innings). The veteran righty will attempt to right the ship in his next appearance, which is tentatively scheduled on the road against Cleveland on Tuesday.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Overwhelmed by Angels on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (2-7) took the loss against the Angels on Friday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out four over 4.1 innings.

The right-hander fared well enough through four frames, giving up a pair of runs but allowing Detroit to stay within striking range. Things fell apart for Urena in the fifth inning, however, as he surrendered three home runs along with a single and a walk to depart with a seven-run deficit. The veteran has now given up 15 runs (14 earned) over his past two starts covering six innings, pushing his season ERA up to 5.79. He'll attempt to turn things around in his next appearance, which is tentatively scheduled to come at home against the Astros on Thursday.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Worst start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (2-6) allowed eight runs (seven earned) on five hits and three walks with one strikeout in 1.2 innings, taking the loss versus the White Sox on Saturday.

Urena's shortest start of the year was quite the disaster, as he also gave up a season-high seven earned runs. The right-hander has struggled to a 5.16 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 37:27 K:BB across 61 innings this season. He projects to make his next start on the road versus the Angels next week.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Yields three runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (2-5) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out one and taking a loss against the White Sox.

All the damage against Urena came during a three-run second inning on RBI singles by Andrew Vaughn and Tim Anderson. It was his first start since May 26 after a short stint on the injured list with a forearm issue. The 6-foot-2 righty saw his ERA jump to 4.25 through 59.1 innings. Urena is lined up for a rematch with the White Sox at home next weekend.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers reinstated Urena (forearm) from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the White Sox, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Detroit placed reliever Michael Fulmer (shoulder) on the IL to make room on the active roster for Urena, who spent the minimum amount of time on the shelf with a minor right forearm strain. The Tigers could look to limit Urena's workload slightly more than usual as he returns from the injury, but due to the brevity of his absence, he likely won't need much time to get fully stretched out. Through his first 10 starts of 2021, Urena has posted a 4.14 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 35:22 K:BB in 54.1 innings.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Likely to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (forearm) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Sunday against the White Sox, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Urena hit the 10-day injured list May 29, with the move being retroactive to May 27, making him eligible to be activated Sunday. Initial reports were that Urena would likely only miss one turn through the rotation, and that appears likely to be the case. The right-hander has posted a 4.14 ERA to go along with a 35:22 K:BB through 54.1 innings this season.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right forearm strain Saturday, retroactive to May 27.

The move is backdated to Thursday, so he'll be eligible to return as early as June 6. Hinch said Saturday that he's confident that Urena will be able to make his next start, Jason Beck of reports. The Tigers haven't announced who will start in his place early next week, but Michael Fulmer could be a candidate for a spot start. Infielder Zack Short was recalled from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Could miss next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (forearm) could miss his next scheduled start, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Urena's next turn through the rotation tentatively lines up for Monday, but he was removed from Wednesday's start against Cleveland due to right forearm cramping. Manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that Urena is feeling better and wants to pitch Monday, but he's leaning toward using another pitcher to start against the Brewers. However, Hinch also said Friday that Urena and the Tigers will come to a collective agreement in the next 24 hours.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Exits with forearm cramping
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was removed from Wednesday's game against Cleveland with right forearm cramping.

The 29-year-old allowed three hits with three walks and two strikeouts through 5.2 scoreless innings before exiting during an at-bat. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, though Urena's availability for his next turn through the rotation is up in the air.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Yields five runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (2-4) allowed five runs on 10 hits over six innings Friday, striking out one without walking a batter and earning the win over the Royals.

Urena had allowed just two runs through five innings before an ugly sixth inning put a dent in his outing. He gave up an RBI single to Ryan O'Hearn before Michael Taylor knocked a two-run homer. Miguel Cabrera's grand slam gave Detroit the lead the next half-inning, so Urena picked up his first win since April 27. Over his last three outings, the 29-year-old has given up 11 runs while striking out just five batters in 13 innings. Urena is expected to face Cleveland at home next week.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Slated to start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (lower leg) is listed as the Tigers' starting pitcher for Friday's game against the Royals.

As expected, Urena won't end up missing a turn through the rotation after he was struck in the lower leg by a line drive during his last start May 15. Before exiting, Urena endured one of his worst outings of the season, as he gave up four runs on five hits and a walk over 2.2 innings in a no-decision against the Cubs. On the season, the right-hander owns a 4.22 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 42.2 frames.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Not expected to miss start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (lower leg) is not expected to miss a start, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

It seemed like Urena was fine after he was struck in the leg by a line drive Saturday -- he was seen celebrating with his teammates after the walkoff win -- and manager A.J. Hinch confirmed Sunday that Urena will remain on schedule. Urena has worked around a lot of traffic on the basepaths (1.45 WHP) to a decent ERA (4.22) so far. He lines up to face the Royals in Kansas City in his next start.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Appears fine after early exit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena is considered day-to-day but appeared fine after being struck by a line drive in the lower leg during Saturday's extra-inning win over the Cubs, Evan Woodbery of reports. He didn't factor in the decision after giving up four runs on five hits with one strikeout and one walk over 2.2 innings.

The right-hander was hit by a Jason Heyward liner during the second inning and returned for the following frame, but he was chased after giving up a pair of doubles. Urena was seen celebrating with his teammates with no issues after the walkoff win, so he should be OK for his next turn through the rotation.
