Astros' Jose Urquidy: Charged with loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings Tuesday as he was charged with the loss in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Rays.

Urquidy was dominant to begin the game, as he held the Rays scoreless over the first five innings Tuesday. However, a throwing error in the sixth inning helped spark a five-run rally by Tampa Bay, putting Urquidy in line for the loss. With the Astros facing a 3-0 deficit in the series, Tuesday's start could have been Urquidy's final appearance of the postseason.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's loss to the Athletics during Game 3 of the ALDS, allowing four earned runs on four solo home runs, an additional hit and one walk while recording three strikeouts over 4.1 innings.

Urquidy was tested Wednesday, failing to make it out of the fifth inning. The 25-year-old threw 62 of his 79 pitches for strikes and recorded a first-pitch strike on 13 of the 21 batters that he faced. The right-hander had the first postseason setback of his young career, as he had never allowed more than one run in any other playoff appearance.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Goes 4.1 strong innings in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out three over 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Wednesday in Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series.

Once again, manager Dusty Baker made a relatively early move to the bullpen -- Zack Greinke was pulled after allowing one run over four innings Tuesday. Once again, the move worked as the trio of Brooks Raley, Cristian Javier and Ryan Pressly combined to shut the Twins out the rest of the way. With that, Houston secured a spot in the ALDS. Urquidy figures to start Game 3 or 4 next week.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Gets Game 2 nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy is starting Game 2 on Wednesday against the Twins, Brian McTaggart of reports.

The Astros will look to close out the first-round series against Minnesota on the back of the 25-year-old righty. He missed a large chunk of this season due to COVID-19 and logged a 2.73 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 17 strikeouts in 29.2 innings (five starts). Urquidy has gone at least six innings in each of his last three starts. Cristian Javier will be available to log multiple innings behind Urquidy.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Goes seven innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out five over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Friday.

Urquidy was in line for the win when he exited the contest, but Ryan Pressly couldn't protect a one-run lead in the ninth. Instead, Urquidy settled for a quality start and his third no-decision in five outings. The right-hander amassed a 2.73 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 17:8 K:BB in 29.2 innings.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Yields two runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy allowed two runs on six hits and two walks over six innings Sunday, striking out two in the win over Arizona. He did not factor in the decision.

Urquidy kept the Diamondbacks quiet before allowing a run in the fourth inning and then a solo shot to Nick Ahmed in the fifth. He left the contest facing a 2-0 deficit but, thanks mostly to George Springer's two homers, he avoided the loss. The 25-year-old will carry a 2.78 ERA into his final start of the season in Friday's road contest against the Rangers.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Strikes out seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (1-1) allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out seven across seven innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Rangers.

Urquidy's lone run allowed came in the fifth inning, when he allowed three singles in a span of four batters. Otherwise, he was in control as he needed only 90 pitches to record his 21 outs. Urquidy has looked good since making his season debut Sept. 5, as he's now allowed only three earned runs across his last two starts -- spanning 13 frames. This marks the first time this season he's whiffed more than two hitters in an outing.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Bright spot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (0-1) allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out one over six innings, taking the loss against Oakland on Thursday.

The offense mustered just two hits, and the Astros fell to 1-8 on their road trip, but Urquidy offered a reason for optimism. The right-hander retired the first 10 batters faced and didn't allow a hit until the fifth inning. He was eventually nicked when Matt Olson hit a two-run home run following a two-out walk. Urquidy threw 88 pitches and is getting stronger leading up to his start next Thursday at home against Texas.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: No-decision Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy didn't factor into the decision in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels. He gave up two runs on four hits and three walks while fanning two across 3.2 innings.

Urquidy had been sidelined since the beginning of the season but made his season debut in Saturday's nightcap. He sailed through the first three innings before getting touched in the fourth and departing after 63 pitches. It wasn't an outing that the Astros' prospect will remember fondly, though, but the fact that he is healthy is a positive sign for Houston ahead of the final weeks of the regular season. Urquidy will look to get deeper Thursday on the road in Oakland.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Activated ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Urquidy has been sidelined since the beginning of the season, but he'll make his season debut against the Angels during Saturday's nightcap. The right-hander hopes to be able to last between 50 and 60 pitches against Los Angeles.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Will start second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) will start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Urquidy has been out since the season began following a positive test for COVID-19 in July. He was in quarantine for about a month, unable to throw during that time, and has been building arm strength at the team's alternate camp. He feels he'll be able to throw between 50 and 60 pitches Saturday.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Season debut likely coming Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dusty Baker said that Urquidy (undisclosed) would likely start one game of Saturday's doubleheader with the Angels in Houston, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Urquidy finally looks ready to make his 2020 debut after he was absent for all of summer camp due to the unspecified issue. The 25-year-old reported to the Astros' alternate site in Corpus Christi in late July and has spent the past month getting his arm built up to handle a starter's workload. The Astros had Urquidy rejoin the big club for workouts this week, with Baker noting that the right-hander looked good during Thursday's session. Like most pitchers making their first start of the season, Urquidy will presumably have a workload restriction Saturday, so those rostering him in fantasy leagues shouldn't plan on him tossing more than five innings or 75 pitches. Brandon Bielak is expected to start the other end of the doubleheader.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: May start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) could return to start one of the doubleheader games Saturday against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Houston manager Dusty Baker is cautiously optimistic that Urquidy will be available. A decision will be finalized following a bullpen session prior to the road trip that begins Friday. The right-hander has been stretched out to 60 pitches.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Hoping to return in 10 days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) is hoping to return in about 10 days, according to Brian McTaggart of

Urquidy was able to throw 50 pitches last time he took the mound, which is an indication he is close to being stretched out. As long as all goes well in the coming days he should be activated from the injured list at some point in the first half of September.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Expected to work out with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dusty Baker said Sunday that he's hopeful Urquidy (undisclosed) will be able to join the Astros in Houston this week to continue working out, Brian McTaggart of reports.

After a member of the Astros' group at their alternate training site recently tested positive for COVID-19, the organization shut down workouts at its facility in Corpus Christi. Urquidy may have missed out on some throwing sessions as a result of the shutdown, but Baker intimated that the right-hander is nearing a return from the 10-day injured list, though the club is still unwilling to issue a target date for his reinstatement. Assuming MLB allows Urquidy, Chris Devenski (arm) and Aledmys Diaz (groin) to report to Houston this week, another update on where exactly the 25-year-old stands in his ramp-up program should come within the next few days.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Resumes mound work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) threw off a mound Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Urquidy is still building up his arm after missing the entirety of summer camp for undisclosed reasons. While this is a step in the right direction for the right-hander, manager Dusty Baker noted his return is not imminent. "The cavalry's a ways off," said the skipper, per Brian McTaggart of

Astros' Jose Urquidy: At least two weeks away
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) could return in two weeks as a reliever or in three or four as a starter, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Urquidy missed the entirety of summer camp for undisclosed reasons and apparently wasn't able to ramp up at all while away from the team. The Astros have quite a number of injuries in both their rotation and bullpen, so it's possible they opt to bring Urquidy back in a bullpen role simply to get as many innings as they can from him as soon as possible.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Not close to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) remains weeks away from being ready to take the field, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Urquidy was unable to join his teammates for workouts until Friday for undisclosed reasons. While the nature of his absence remains unexplained, he evidently was unable to perform any baseball activities while away from the team. He'll need to go through a full preseason buildup before he's ready to pitch in a game.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: Beginning workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urquidy (undisclosed) was cleared to participate in baseball activities Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old was absent from summer camp for undisclosed reasons, but he'll now head to the team's alternate training site to begin prepping for the season. Urquidy figures to require some time to build up to a starter's workload, so it's unclear when he may be able to rejoin the Astros. Framber Valdez is opening the season as the team's No. 5 starter in his place.

Astros' Jose Urquidy: GM mum on status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager James Click said Thursday there is no update on Urquidy's status, other than that the team is doing everything it can to get him back on the field as soon as possible, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Urquidy has been absent from camp for an undisclosed reason and should be considered out indefinitely. In addition to an unclear timetable for his return to the team, it is unclear how quickly the young righty will be able to build up to the point that he could handle a starter's workload. Framber Valdez is expected to work as the team's fifth starter in the short term.
