Urias tossed a clean ninth inning in Saturday's rout over the Cardinals, striking out one batter and allowing no baserunners.
The inning was Urias' first since the first half of the 2017 season, after he missed over a year following shoulder surgery. It's certainly a positive sign to see him having success right away, though his fantasy value will remain low for the rest of the year, as the Dodgers are likely to use him in short bursts with several days of rest between outings as he builds his arm strength back up.
Urias hasn't pitched in the majors since the first half of 2017 after undergoing shoulder surgery. He's made it back in time to be an option out of the bullpen for the final few weeks of the season, though it's unclear how effective he'll be able to be. In 11.2 minor-league innings split between Triple-A Oklahoma City, High-A Rancho Cucamonga and the Dodgers' AZL affiliate, he's posted a 5.40 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP and a 19:7 K:BB. He's also regularly received multiple days of rest between his outings, so he likely won't pick up a large workload down the stretch.
Urias (shoulder) was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
The move has no impact on Urias' return to the majors, as the plan all along was for him to head to Los Angeles in September. His rehab assignment was about to expire, though he'll need at least one more appearance with Oklahoma City, so he'll remain in Triple-A as a normal member of the team, at least officially. Expect him up in the Dodgers' bullpen in early September, barring any setbacks.
Urias (shoulder) will pitch for Double-A Tulsa on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
He has made two starts apiece in the AZL and the California League, but has not logged more than 1.2 innings in any of his four rehab starts to date. Urias threw 32 pitches (16 strikes) in his most recent rehab start for High-A Rancho Cucamonga last week. It has already been announced that Urias will work in a relief capacity when he is activated from the disabled list this year, likely in September.
Urias (shoulder) will pitch about two innings for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The Dodgers previously indicated Urias would move to Double-A Tulsa for his next rehab appearance, but instead will keep him at Rancho Cucamonga for at least one more outing. The 22-year-old last pitched Friday, reaching as high as 95 mph during his 1.2 innings for the Quakes.
