A very young lefthander who is raising eyebrows all over minor league ball with his electric filth*, Julio Urias is one of the most intriguing prospects in the Dodger system today. His stuff is plus-plus, and while there are concerns about his slight frame and ability to handle an MLB workload, the youngster is in good hands, and if anyone can maximize his potential as he grows, it's the Dodger coaching crew. While his raw stuff is MLB-level already, he's got enough to learn that he really should spend another full year in the minors. Let's see if the Dodgers have enough patience for that.
*Note: also a great name for a punk-jazz fusion band.

Julio Urias was hammered again yesterday, this time by the Cubs, who took him yard three times on the way to a 7-2 victory. This can't be good for his young ego.

Yeah, well that's that. Young Julio Urias was rocked in his MLB debut, giving up 5 hits, 4 walks and 3 runs before being removed in the third inning. He may or may not get another start, and with the mighty Cubs the next on the agenda, his fans should probably be hoping for 'not'.

Julio Urias will be called up to start Friday's game against the Mets. The young lefthander is a top-shelf talent, but this seems a little early to us. (We expected a full year in the minors). The least they could do is give him a less-potent lineup to break in against.
