Urias was helped off the field in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Mariners with an undisclosed left leg injury, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
He took an awkward step down the first base line in an effort to beat out a grounder and pulled up grabbing the back of his left leg. The fact he needed to be helped off the field obviously isn't a good sign. He was 1-for-4 with a strikeout before exiting.
Urias went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Reds.
Urias returned to the lineup after a scheduled rest day Saturday, and he cashed in with his second home run of the year. The 21-year-old is slashing just .205/.265/.364 over his first 49 major-league plate appearances, but his dynasty value remains high despite the early struggles.
Urias is out of the lineup against Cincinnati on Saturday.
Urias will retreat to the bench for a standard day off following 10 straight starts after being called up in late August. During those contests, he's gone 7-for-39 (.179 average) with one home run and three RBI. Cory Spangenberg will man the keystone and bat seventh.
One of the top position prospects in a deep Padres farm system, Urias will head to the majors after hitting .296/.398/.447 with eight home runs, 83 runs and 45 RBI in 120 games as the youngest qualified hitter in the Pacific Coast League. He's expected to fill a full-time role in the middle infield for the Padres over the final month of the season, mixing in at both second base and shortstop. The 21-year-old may slot near the bottom of the order initially, but he profiles as a top-of-the-lineup candidate in the long term.
Urias went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double and a walk Monday in Triple-A El Paso's 10-3 win over Round Rock.
After a downturn in productivity throughout July, Urias' all-fields contact skills have resurfaced through El Paso's first six games of the month. In those contests, the second baseman has gone 10-for-23 with five extra-base knocks, lifting his season average and on-base percentage to .275 and .386, respectively. Since he's not on the Padres' 40-man roster, a second-half promotion isn't guaranteed for the 21-year-old, even though he has proven deserving of a callup.
