Dodgers Phenom Julio Urias Throws 6-Hitless With 6 K’s


The lefty lasted 6 innings for the first time in 2016 and just the 7th time in his minor league career

            Unless you just don’t follow baseball that closely, you’ve probably at least heard of Julio Urias, the pride of the Dodgers system (at least now that Corey Seager has graduated). Urias, still just 19 and a lefty, is considered one of the top starting pitching prospect in the minors, if not the best, and he’s already crushing it in AAA. His Oklahoma City Dodgers hosted the New Orleans Zephyrs Wednesday morning, and Urias was on top of his game, allowing 0 hits while facing the minimum with 6 K's over 6 innings. The one baserunner he did allow came on an E6 behind him, but Urias picked that runner off instead of dealing with the next batter.
            Before we take a look at some GIF’s from this start, let’s review what Urias throws. Per Baseball America’s 2016 Prospect Guidebook, Urias sits 90-95 with his fastball, topping at 97 MPH. He also mixes in a changeup that projects to be a plus pitch, and a curveball that he can manipulate. On top of the plus stuff, he keeps the ball hidden well during his motion and will change arm angles without losing effectiveness.

Recapish


            The Las Vegas 51s lost to El Paso Wednesday night, with the game turning into a laugher by the end. The 51s were sitting pretty after a 5-run 2nd inning, but starter Rafael Montero would allow 7 runs over the next 3 innings, and the Chihuahuas never looked back. The game stayed close until the 8th, when Erik Goeddel and Stolmy Pimentel were tagged for 9 runs on just 5 hits.

Recapish


            The Binghamton Mets received a third straight quality start from Tyler Pill Wednesday evening as they won their 14th straight game in Portland. The offense charged ahead with 6 runs between the 5th and 7th innings, and then the rain started coming down too hard to play 10 pitches into the bottom half of the 7th. After a short wait, the game was called in Binghamton’s favor – the forecast was probably ugly, but I’m guessing Thursday’s 11 AM scheduled start time played a role in the quick call too.

Recapish


            Dilson Herrera and the Las Vegas 51s made a laugher out of their Tuesday afternoon affair in El Paso, combining for 15 runs on 17 hits, including 10 extra base hits and 4 homeruns. The 51s jumped ahead quickly and could hardly be slowed down Tuesday. El Paso briefly made it a close game when Sean Gilmartin struggled to close out the 5th inning, but Dilson Herrera exploded over the final 3 innings. He tripled and scored in the 7th, and then homered in both the 8th and 9th innings.
