2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Urshela's bid to unseat Lonnie Chisenhall at the hot corner never got off the launch pad in spring due to a balky back and he opened the season at Triple-A Columbus. Chisenhall's slow start with both the bat and glove opened the door for Urshela, who was hitting .272/.298/.469 at Triple-A at the time of his recall in June. His inability to control the strikezone (18 walks, 58 strikeouts in 288 plate appearances) contributed to his offensive struggles with the Tribe as he posted a poor .608 OPS in 81 games for Cleveland. A nagging shoulder injury didn't help either but he, along with shortstop Francisco Lindor, helped solidify the Indians infield defense. After the Indians signed Juan Uribe to a one-year deal this offseason, Urshela will likely begin the year at Triple-A. He'll need to command the strikezone better and get himself into some good hitters' counts if he wants to take full advantage of his moderate power going forward. Unless Uribe gets hurt or struggles mightily, Urshela may have to wait until 2017 to get a crack at playing every day in the big leagues again.

2015

Few third base prospects can match Urshela’s proximity to the big leagues. He played 24 games at Double-A Akron and 104 games at Triple-A Columbus last season, more than holding his own with the stick at both levels. He forced a promotion to Triple-A after slashing .300/.347/.567 with five home runs in just 24 games with Akron, and his numbers remained solid after moving up a level. Urshela hit .276/.331/.473 (.289 BABIP) with 13 home runs in 430 plate appearances with Columbus, and appears on the verge of making his big league debut. The incumbent at the hot corner, Lonnie Chisenhall, hit just .218 in the second half in 2014, and if he gets off to a slow start, Urshela figures to get the first crack at replacing him. While he will likely never put up elite power numbers for the position, he could settle in as a middling option there if he is playing every day.
