This protects Jurado from the Rule 5 draft. He was seen as one of the Rangers' best real-life prospects after the 2016 season, but was very underwhelming last year at Double-A. Jurado logged a 4.59 ERA and abysmal 14.1 percent strikeout rate in a return trip to the Texas League. While he has shown an ability to be effective at times in some very difficult pitching environments, his inability to miss bats makes him pretty uninteresting for fantasy purposes.
Jurado, 21, has a 4.84 ERA and 71:27 K:BB in 115.1 innings at Double-A Frisco.
Jurado has been even worse over his last 10 outings, compiling a bloated 5.84 ERA. His strikeout numbers have also taken a huge nosedive this season. All in all, Jurado has lost a bit of his prospect luster in 2017, though at just 21 years of age he still has plenty of time to right the ship.
Jurado, 21, has compiled a 6.10 ERA and 12:5 K:BB ratio across 20.2 innings over his four starts with Double-A Frisco this season.
The Panamanian pitcher had advanced quickly through the Rangers system thanks to his excellent control, and while he's not giving away many free passes to begin the 2017 campaign, his lack of swing-and-miss stuff seems to have caught up with him. Jurado has already surrendered 21 hits -- including four homers -- and his 6.07 FIP suggests it's not merely an elevated BABIP that's at the root of his demise. He'll need to continue developing his secondary offerings in order to do a better job of keeping the ball in the yard.
