Orioles' Richard Urena: Remaining in big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Norfolk on Sunday, Rich Dubroff of BaltimoreBaseball.com reports.

Urena was designated for assignment by Baltimore last week but will remain in the organization after going through waivers unclaimed. The 23-year-old will continue to work in the major-league camp as a non-roster invitee.

Orioles' Richard Urena: Dropped from roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Wednesday.

Urena was plucked off waivers from Toronto in late December but won't wind up making it to Opening Day on the Orioles' 40-man roster. Andrew Velazquez was claimed off waivers from Cleveland in a corresponding move.

Orioles' Richard Urena: Scooped up off waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was claimed off waivers by the Orioles on Friday.

Urena was designated for assignment by Toronto at the end of the 2019 calendar year after hitting .243 with four RBI over 30 contests in the big leagues. The utility infielder could have a better chance of seeing consistent playing time as part of a rebuilding Baltimore squad.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday.

The 23-year-old has gotten into 91 games at the major-league level over the last three seasons, hitting a modest .252/.300/.336. Given his age, he still has plenty of time to prove that he's more than just a utility infielder, but he's yet to convince that he's even worthy of that title. By removing him from the roster, the Blue Jays clear a spot for the newly signed Travis Shaw.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Called up for final month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was recalled by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old has gotten into 79 big-league games over the last three seasons but hasn't had much success at the plate, hitting .255/.302/.337 with just two homers and a 32.2 percent strikeout rate. He'll have to fight for playing time with a group of more highly-rated young infielders down the stretch.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

Urena was promoted earlier in the week and went 0-for-1 while appearing in two games. The 23-year-old returns to Buffalo, where he has a .280/.318/.399 slash line in 92 games.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Urena earned a spot on the Opening Day roster but has been at Triple-A since late May. The 23-year-old provides some added infield depth with the Blue Jays starting a three-game set on the road versus the Dodgers.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Demoted as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

Urena heads back to Buffalo after a week in the majors, with Cavan Biggio and Lourdes Gurriel getting called up Friday. Urena struck out five times in eight at-bats during the brief major-league stint, in which he received a pair of starts at second base.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Heading back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena is expected to be sent back to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Urena's latest trip to the big leagues will last just one week. He went 0-for-8 with five strikeouts over that stretch. He'll join Billy McKinney in heading to Buffalo, with Cavan Biggio and Lourdes Gurriel set to be recalled.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

Urena will take the roster spot of Teoscar Hernandez, who was sent to the minors in the midst of his early season struggles. The 23-year-old will likely operate as a utility infielder during his time with the big club. He appeared in 11 games for the Blue Jays earlier in the year, slashing .313/.333/.406 with three doubles in those contests.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

Urena was promoted from Buffalo on Sunday and went 2-for-8 in three appearances during his short stint with the team. The 22-year-old returns to Triple-A in order to make room on the 25-man roster for the promotion of top-prospect Vladimir Guerrero.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Back in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Sunday's game in Oakland.

Urena is a capable defender, so he will continue to see time in the majors as long as he remains on the 40-man roster, but there is no evidence that Urena can be productive against big-league pitching (career 84 wRC+, 31.9 percent strikeout rate). He should get the occassional start while he is up.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena will be sent to Triple-A Buffalo prior to Saturday's game against Tampa Bay, John Lott of The Athletic reports.

Urena got off to a solid start at the dish through his first eight games of 2019 and went 8-for-24 with three doubles over that stretch. He'll head to the minor leagues to make room for Clay Buchholz on the 25-man roster.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Surprises with bat in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Tigers.

Getting the start at shortstop and hitting eighth, Urena was the only Jay to collect multiple hits on the day. The 23-year-old has a career .364 SLG in 173 big-league at-bats, so performances like this are likely to be rare, but given his strong glove and all the moving parts on the team's infield, he could get more playing time than you might expect in 2019 -- assuming he isn't the roster casualty when Vlad Guerrero Jr. gets the call.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Wins roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was informed Tuesday that he would be included on the Blue Jays' Opening Day roster, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The 23-year-old switch hitter will serve as a utility infielder for Toronto, a role that will likely afford him only a couple starts per week. With a .257/.311/.341 slash line, two home runs and three steals over 183 career plate appearances in the majors, Urena won't carry much fantasy appeal if he finds himself in a full-time role at some point this season.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: In line for Opening Day assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena appears to be the favorite to begin the season as the Blue Jays' utility infielder, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

Devon Travis' latest knee woes have pushed Lourdes Gurriel Jr. into the starting second base job, opening up a spot for Urena on the bench. Journeyman Eric Sogard is also competing for that role, but since Urena is already on the 40-man roster he has a potentially decisive edge despite his lackluster .257/.311/.341 slash line in 61 career MLB games. Whoever wins it may only stick around until Vlad Guerrero Jr. joins the team, likely in mid-April.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Called up and starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was recalled by the Blue Jays on Tuesday and is batting ninth and playing shortstop against the Rays.

The 22-year-old received 49 plate appearances for the Jays earlier in the season, hitting a respectable .273/.333/.409. He has the ability to play around the infield and could see time at multiple positions down the stretch.

August 24, 2018 02:52 PM
Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Sent down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

Urena will shuttle back to the minors after going 7-for-26 (.269 average) across nine games of action during this stint with the Blue Jays. In a corresponding move, Lourdes Gurriel (ankle) was activated from the 10-day DL. Look for Urena to rejoin the big-league team in September.

Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Starting streak ends
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena is out of the lineup Sunday against the Yankees, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

The move to the bench ends a streak of four straight starts for Urena, who went 3-for-13 with a double and a run scored over that span. Despite the heightened workload of late, Urena projects to serve as the Blue Jays' top backup at both middle-infield spots going forward until the team gets one of Yangervis Solarte (oblique), Lourdes Gurriel (ankle) or Brandon Drury (hand) back from the disabled list.

August 7, 2018 06:16 PM
Blue Jays' Richard Urena: Called up from Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urena was called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

Urena is up to replace Brandon Drury, who was placed on the disabled list with a fractured hand. With Lourdes Gurriel also out with an ankle injury, at-bats are available in the Blue Jays' infield, though Urena is not in the starting lineup Tuesday.
