18-Year-Old Pitcher – Los Angeles Dodgers
2015 Fantasy Baseball Outlook
It may sound crazy to expect Urias to dominate against Double-A hitters in 2015 as an 18-year-old, but itís no more outlandish than the idea of him dominating High-A hitters as a 17-year-old, and that...
Dodgers President of Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman said Urias is not being considered for a promotion to the big leagues in the wake of Brandon McCarthy's season-ending elbow injury, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Julio Urias: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Urias emerged as one of the organization's top prospects last season, tossing 54.1 innings of 2.48 ERA ball as a 17-year-old for Low-A Great Lakes. It's quite rare to see someone so young have this level of success in full-season ball, so there is reason to be excited about his long-term upside. That said, he is still very young, and at a listed 5-foot-11, 160 pounds, he doesn't exactly have the mound presence of Randy Johnson. The Dodgers are expected to take their time with Urias, so it would be a surprise to see him finish 2014 at a level above High-A.
