Urias was traded from the Padres to the Brewers along with Eric Lauer in exchange for Trent Grisham and Zach Davies, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The Padres had been rumored to be shopping Urias, whom the Brewers have long coveted, and Milwaukee had a crowded outfield, so they lined up as trade partners. Orlando Arcia's bat is well below average at shortstop and Keston Hiura is a very poor defender at second base, so Urias' ability to play both middle-infield spots will come in handy. Hiura obviously won't lose out on playing time, but giving him occassional starts at first base, where his throwing arm wouldn't be as big of a liability, might make sense. Urias figures to be the Opening Day shortstop, and the Brewers may even non-tender Arcia. The former has a potentially plus (or better) hit tool, but it has not yet translated consistently against big-league pitching. However, he is still just 22 years old, and while he hit .223 last year, he got on base at a .329 clip. It is a home park upgrade for Urias and he goes to an organization that is less likely to mess with his playing time, so this results in a bump in his fantasy value.
Urias went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and an RBI single in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Urias knocked a solo home run off Robbie Ray in the fourth inning, and then added the run-scoring single in the sixth. The shortstop is up to four homers, 24 RBI and 27 runs scored in 70 games this year while producing a .226/.331/.330 slash line.
Urias is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.
Urias is hitting a robust .326 in September, but he will get a day off after going 0-for-6 with five strikeouts over his last two games. Seth Mejias-Brean will get the start at shortstop in Urias' place.
Urias went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and a double in a loss to Colorado on Sunday.
Urias crushed a 441-foot shot to center field in the second inning to plate the Padres' first run. The rookie has found his groove at the plate over the last nine games, batting .400 (14-for-35) with four walks and six RBI. The hot streak has pushed Urias' average over .220 for the first time this season, and his current slash line sits at .223/.337/.326 in 205 plate appearances.
Urias went 3-for-5 with an RBI and scored twice in a victory over the Cubs on Tuesday.
Urias got the Padres on the board with an RBI single in the second inning and crossed the plate with the winning run in the 10th. The three-hit game was the first of Urias' major-league career and pushed his average over the Mendoza Line for the first time since Aug. 24. The rookie is hitting only .208 this season but has had a strong start to September, batting .421 (8-for-19) through seven games.
Urias remains on the bench for Wednesday's game against Arizona.
The Padres should seemingly be giving the vast majority of at-bats to their young players down the stretch, but Urias finds himself on the bench in favor of Greg Garcia for the second game in a row and the third time in four games. Urias's .080 batting average over his last nine games could partially explain that decision.
Urias will remain at shortstop for the remainder of the season, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.
Urias began the season at second base but has played exclusively at shortstop since Fernando Tatis suffered a season-ending back injury Aug. 13. Urias has struggled both defensively and offensively since making the transition, committing seven errors and hitting .167 in 18 games. Per Lin, manager Andy Green stated that Urias will need to earn a starting position next season.
Urias isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.
Urias has struggled to a .143 average over his last 10 games, and he's also struggled in the field. Greg Garcia draws the start at shortstop and is set to lead off.
Urias is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Urias started the last 18 games and will head to the bench after slashing .211/.297/.333 in that stretch. Greg Garcia will take over at shortstop while Ty France covers the keystone.
Urias went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Phillies.
Starting at shortstop for the fourth straight game, Urias poked a four-seam fastball over the right field wall in the fourth inning for his second major-league long ball. The 22-year-old rookie got off to a slow start this season, hitting just .090 through his first 55 at-bats, but has thrived in August with a .326/.431/.465 slash line and 12 RBI in 14 games.
Urias will start at shortstop and bat eighth Saturday against the Phillies.
Urias slotted into the leadoff spot for Friday's game -- the first game following Fernando Tatis Jr.'s back injury -- and Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune described that lineup as "the new normal." However, Urias went hitless in the series opener, and he now finds himself back at the bottom of the order, with Manuel Margot leading off. Perhaps manager Andy Green decided he doesn't want to put too much pressure on Urias' bat.
Urias went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Phillies.
The 22-year-old was batting leadoff in the absence of Fernando Tatis Jr. (back), which Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune described as "the new normal" with Tatis likely done for the season. Even with the 0-fer, Urias is still batting .314/.442/.400 in August. He has shifted over to shortstop, opening up second base for Ty France.
Urias went 1-for-2 with a double, a run scored, three RBI and a walk in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Rays.
Urias delivered a two-run double during the fourth inning to give the Friars a 4-2 lead and tacked on another RBI when he was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh. The 22-year-old is enjoying a productive August with a .355/.487/.452 slash line in 11 games, and he could see some playing time at shortstop -- as he did Wednesday -- while Fernando Tatis is out with back spasms.
Urias went 2-for-3 with a double, walk and three RBI in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Rays.
Urias went 1-for-24 in his first eight games with the Padres following his July 20 callup from Triple-A El Paso, but the rookie is finally starting to show the polished plate approach that made him a highly regarded prospect. Over his subsequent 12 contests, Urias has slashed .333/.442/.472 with seven RBI and eight runs scored. Urias shifted over to shortstop Tuesday when Fernando Tatis (back) exited late in the contest and will man that position in the series finale Wednesday while batting seventh.
Urias is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rockies.
He is hitting .300 with one home run, seven strikeouts and three walks in his last 10 games (30 at-bats). Greg Garcia is starting at second base and hitting seventh.
Urias went 2-for-4 with three runs scored and one RBI in Friday's 7-1 win over the Rockies.
Urias crossed the dish on a third-inning double by Fernando Tatis Jr. and a fifth-inning single by Wil Myers. The second baseman then contributed a fielder's choice in the eighth inning before scoring a third time on Josh Naylor's three-run homer. Urias is still hitting lightly with a .162 average over 74 at-bats, but he's been better in August, going 7-for-19 with six runs scored and two RBI in seven contests.
Urias is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.
It's the second straight contest on the bench for Urias, who has a .132/.313/.211 slash line in 12 games since being called up July 20. Greg Garcia will grab another start at the keystone in his place.
Urias is not in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.
Despite hitting .315/.398/.600 for Triple-A El Paso, Urias hasn't come close to getting things going in the big leagues, hitting .113/.286/.177 in 23 games. Greg Garcia will start at second base in his absence.
Urias went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 8-1 win over the Orioles.
One of five Padres to leave the yard on the night, Urias' fourth-inning blast off David Hess ended an 0-for-23 hitless skid. Urias reached base later in the contest when he was hit in the lip by a Jimmy Yacabonis pitch, but he was able to remain in the game and noted afterward that he would be OK for Tuesday, per the Associated Press.
Urias will start at second base and bat eighth Thursday against the Mets.
Since being recalled from Triple-A El Paso over the weekend, Urias has drawn five consecutive starts at the keystone. His returns through the first four contests (one hit in 13 at-bats) haven't been helpful for fantasy managers, but his 4:2 BB:K over that stretch suggests he's at least doing well to control his plate appearances. Urias should have a decent amount of leash as the team's everyday second baseman with the alternatives (Greg Garcia and Ian Kinsler) not being especially appealing.
