2015

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 thatís exactly what he did last season with Rancho Cucamonga. Urias is one of the most advanced teenage arms of all time. He posted a 2.36 ERA and a 109:37 K:BB ratio in 87.2 innings in 2014, and was extra filthy in the second half, putting up a 1.20 ERA with 62 strikeouts in his final 45 innings of the season. The Mexican lefty already possesses a plus fastball and an unfair curveball that could border on double-plus, and he made strides last season with his changeup, which now looks like a potential third plus offering if he can command it better. To say that an 18-year-oldís floor is a No. 3 starter on a contending team may sound insane, but itís hard to argue the contrary in Uriasí case. A stellar first half at Double-A in 2015 may force the Dodgersí hand and earn him a promotion to Triple-A before his 19th birthday.

2014

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.
