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.

Tigers' Jose Urena: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Twins after giving up two runs on nine hits and two walks while fanning three across 4.1 innings.

Urena dealt with 11 baserunners but limited the damage to just two runs -- and both came on a two-run shot from Josh Donaldson in the top of the fifth. The 29-year-old right-hander has been remarkably consistent this season since he's allowed two or fewer runs in each of his last six outings, and his 1-4 record can be explained by the lack of run support he's received. Urena's next start is scheduled for next week at home against the Cubs.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Takes tough-luck loss Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (1-4) allowed only two runs across seven innings but took the loss Sunday against the Yankees. He gave up three hits and a walk while striking out seven.

Urena pitched well and was one off his season high in strikeouts, but New York starter Corey Kluber was even better, blanking the Tigers across eight innings. Urena has gone exactly seven innings in four straight starts and has allowed a total of just seven earned runs during the stretch, but he has only a 1-2 record to show for it as the Detroit offense has done very little to help the starting pitchers. Urena will look for a little more run support in his next start, tentatively scheduled for Friday against the Twins.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Earns first win with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (1-3) allowed two runs (one earned) across seven innings to pick up the win Tuesday against the White Sox. He gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out two.

True to form, Urena didn't rely on overpowering stuff, but he was able to keep a tough Chicago lineup in check and pick up his first win in a Tigers uniform. A lack of strikeouts typically limits his fantasy appeal, but Urena does now have a solid 3.77 ERA through five appearances, and he's allowed exactly two earned runs in each of his past four starts. The righty will look to keep rolling against the Yankees on Sunday.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Throws seven solid innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena allowed two earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out two across seven innings Thursday against the Pirates. He did not factor into the decision.

It looked like it would be a hard day for Urena after he surrendered two runs in the opening frame. However, he allowed only three baserunners across the next six frames, resulting in his second consecutive seven-inning effort. Urena has a 4.57 ERA and 19:12 K:BB through four starts this season and is projected to draw his next start Tuesday at the White Sox.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Takes tough-luck loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (0-3) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks over seven innings in Friday's loss to Oakland. He struck out eight and took the loss.

The 29-year-old cruised through three scoreless innings to start the game before coughing up two runs in the fourth. His offense couldn't get much going against Frankie Montas so Urena was tagged with a loss despite producing his best outing of the season. He now owns a 17:11 K:BB and 5.52 ERA through 14.2 frames. Urena will face the Pirates at home next Thursday.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Walks five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (0-2) allowed two runs on three hits and five walks while fanning four across 4.2 innings in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

Urena struggled in his first start of the season, and things didn't change Sunday. Even though he limited the damage to just two runs, the control issues plagued him once again. He now owns a 9:9 K:BB over his first 7.2 innings of the campaign.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Roughed up in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena (0-1) took the loss after surrendering six runs (five earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out five over three innings Monday against Minnesota.

The Twins were locked in on Urena from the start, putting up one run in the first and five in the second with the help of a Nelson Cruz grand slam. Urena threw first-pitch strikes to just four of the 16 batters he faced and was pulled after hurling 81 pitches (39 strikes). He'll get a chance to redeem himself in his next scheduled start Sunday in Cleveland.

Tigers' Jose Urena: Allows one run in last spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena allowed one run across 4.2 innings in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees. He gave up one hit and five walks while striking out three.

The five walks are a little concerning, but it was otherwise a good start for Urena, who finishes spring training with a solid 1.93 ERA. The righty will open the season in Detroit's rotation, slotting in somewhere behind Opening Day starter Matthew Boyd.
