Ariel Jurado: Cut loose by Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was non-tendered by the Mets on Wednesday.

He made just one appearance for the Mets last season and has never posted an ERA under 5.50 across three MLB seasons, albeit in very small samples. Jurado may need to settle for a minor-league deal on the open market.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Optioned off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Wednesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Jurado pitched poorly in his Mets debut Tuesday against the Orioles, giving up five runs on nine hits while striking out just two batters in four innings of work. He'll be removed from the roster as the Mets make room for their trade-deadline acquisitions.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Roughed up by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado allowed five earned runs on nine hits and no walks while striking out two across four innings Tuesday against the Mets. He did not factor into the decision.

Jurado gave up all five of his earned runs in the first two innings, surrendering a three-run homer in the first frame. He did manage to settle in from there, retiring six of the last eight batters he faced. The outing was his debut with the Mets, and he was needed as a starter after the Mets played a doubleheader Sunday against the Yankees. It's unclear how the team will utilize him going forward.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Recalled prior to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was recalled by the Mets prior to his scheduled start against the Orioles on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Jurado joined the Mets via trade in early August and will make his debut with the team Tuesday. The right-hander carries a 5.85 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 177 innings in the majors, so he wouldn't seem to carry much fantasy upside heading into his first appearance with the Mets.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado will be recalled to start Tuesday's game against the Orioles, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Jurado, who was acquired in a trade from the Rangers in early August after being designated for assignment, spent a day on the Mets' big-league roster Sunday but did not get into a game. With a 5.85 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 13.2 percent strikeout rate in 177 career major-league innings, expectations should be low for the 24-year-old.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Heads to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was optioned to the Mets' alternate training site Monday.

Jurado received his first callup of 2020 on Sunday, joining the Mets as the 29th man for their doubleheader with the Yankees. He went unused in either contest and will now head back to the alternate site as the Mets reduce their active roster to the standard 28 men ahead of Monday's make-up game against the Marlins.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Recalled for twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was recalled from the alternate training site for Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The 24-year-old will serve as the 29th man for the twin bill and should return to the alternate site at the conclusion of Game 2. Jurado was acquired from the Rangers in early August after being designated for assignment. He had a 5.81 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 81:36 K:BB over 122.1 innings last season and has yet to see game action in 2020.

Mets' Ariel Jurado: Shipped to Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was traded from the Rangers to the Mets in exchange for a player to be named later or cash Wednesday.

Jurado was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday but will remain on a 40-man roster, albeit for a different organization. He'll join the Mets' alternate training site for now. The 24-year-old righty owns a poor 5.85 ERA through 177 big-league innings, striking out just 13.2 percent of opposing batters, so the Mets would likely prefer to keep him in a low-leverage role.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: DFA'd by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Friday.

The 24-year-old was unable to secure a spot on the team's Opening Day roster and doesn't appear close to rejoining the big-league club. Jurado made 32 appearances (18 starts) for Texas in 2019 and had a 5.81 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 81:36 K:BB across 122.1 innings.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado was optioned to Triple-A Nashville on Friday.

Jurado was going to need a lot of dominoes to fall in order for him to break camp with the Rangers, so him being optioned to Nashville does not come as a surprise. The right-hander remains a candidate to draw spot starts for Texas in 2020.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: No longer on medical report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado (shoulder) is at full strength again, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Jurado dealt with a mild bout of shoulder inflammation over the weekend but has been removed from the Rangers' medical report. Jurado, who has posted unremarkable numbers over 26 starts for Texas the last two seasons, should be on the list of candidates when the Rangers need a spot of fill-in starter in 2020.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Dealing with shoulder issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado is battling minor shoulder inflammation, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

It's unclear if Jurado's availability for Opening Day will be seriously threatened. The 24-year-old started 18 games last season and came out of the bullpen in 14 more, finishing with an uninspiring 5.81 ERA and a 15.0 percent strikeout rate.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Slapped with 11th loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado (7-11) took the loss Tuesday as the Rangers were downed 12-10 by the Red Sox, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits over three innings of relief. He struck out one.

Edinson Volquez got tagged for four runs in the first inning as the opener, but Jurado didn't fare much better as the Rangers' primary pitcher for the night. The right-hander is likely done for the season, and he'll wrap up his second MLB campaign with a 5.81 ERA and 81:36 K:BB through 122.1 innings.

September 23, 2019 05:56 PM
Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Will follow opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado will follow an opener (Edinson Volquez) Tuesday against Boston.

Jurado has worked both as a true starter and as a primary relief pitcher this season, but he hasn't had much success overall. In 119.1 innings, he's recorded a 5.73 ERA while striking out just 15.2 percent of opposing batters.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Returning to rotation Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Red Sox, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

After Jurado was lit up for 11 runs in 5.2 innings over his previous two turns through the rotation, the Rangers elected to shift him to a bullpen role this week. Jurado tossed a scoreless frame in relief Friday against the Athletics in what will essentially function as a between-starts bullpen session before he slots back into the rotation in the first game of the Rangers' season-ending homestand. Texas has yet to decide whether Jurado will make a traditional start Tuesday or work behind an opener.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Roughed up by Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 10-9 win over the Rays, surrendering six runs on six hits and two walks over 1.2 innings. He struck out only one.

Tampa hung two runs on him in the top of the first inning, but Texas struck back for seven in the bottom of the frame -- only for Jurado to immediately help cough up the lead and get chased from the game after recording only five outs on 47 pitches (27 strikes). The right-hander will take a 5.78 ERA and 79:36 K:BB through 118.1 innings into his next start Tuesday in Houston.

September 10, 2019 12:20 PM
Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Listed as Wednesday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado is listed as the starter for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

He has been following an opener (Edinson Volquez) of late, but as of Tuesday it seems like Jurado will get a true start in his next outing. The 23-year-old righty has a 5.40 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 78 strikeouts in 116.2 innings this season.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Struggles against Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado allowed five runs on seven hits and zero walks over four innings during Tuesday's loss to the Yankees. He had three strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

Edinson Volquez allowed two runs while working as the opener, saving Jurado from being saddled with the loss. Jurado fired four scoreless frames before falling apart during the sixth inning, allowing five hits -- including two homers -- and recording zero outs. The 23-year-old has a 5.40 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 78:34 K:BB through 116.2 innings this season and lines up for a more favorable matchup Sunday at Baltimore.

Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Will work as primary pitcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado will serve as the bulk reliever for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.

Edinson Volquez is slated to toss the first inning or two as the opener, and Jurado is set to follow. He turned in an excellent performance his last time out, tossing six scoreless frames against the Angels.

August 29, 2019 11:00 AM
Rangers' Ariel Jurado: Delivers six scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jurado (7-10) gave up two hits and one walk while striking out one through six scoreless innings to get the win against the Angels on Wednesday.

Entering the game after an opener, Jurado efficiently delivered a nice outing in which he only allowed three baserunners in his six innings. The 23-year-old has a 6.08 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP in his last five appearances, but this outing was his first outing as the primary pitcher. Jurado lines up to pitch again Monday at Yankee Stadium, though it is not clear if he will get the start or serve as the primary pitcher.
