Logs six innings in no-decision
PTexas Rangers
June 21, 2019
Jurado allowed four runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three over six innings in a no-decision Friday against the White Sox.
ANALYSIS
Jurado squandered an early 2-0 lead, ceding a three-run home run in the second inning, before retiring 10 of the 11 final batters he faced. He's allowed a homer in each of his seven starts since joining the rotation. His body of work as a starter has been largely good though, record four quality starts in six trips to the mound with only one bad outing heavily skewing his 4.44 ERA.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Jurado has shown advanced control for his age, along with the ability to keep the ball down in the zone. Using his best pitch, the sinking two-seam fastball, Jurado posted a 2.0 GB/FB ratio between High-A and Double-A in 2016. Jurado also walked just 34 batters in 123 innings. He does not have massive strikeout potential, and he does not have a huge frame, though he did fan 106 batters in those 123 innings. Jurado also has improving secondary pitches, most notably a changeup and curveball. Overall, the 6-foot-1 righty notched a 3.66 ERA last season, but his most impressive feat was posting a 3.86 ERA in the California League while pitching half his games at High Desert, one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the minors. Jurado will pitch in the majors, perhaps as early as the second half of this season, and he has all the tools to make it as a back-end starter.
Just by glancing at Jurado’s professional numbers, it is hard not to get overly excited about the 20-year-old righty. His 2.45 ERA last season at Low-A Hickory was the highest mark of his three-year run as a professional, and he has never had a WHIP higher than 1.11 in 186.2 innings across rookie ball and Low-A. Jurado also boasts an insane 177:23 K:BB over that span, which should be enough for him to get on the radar of most dynasty league owners. Unfortunately, his gaudy numbers do not match the scouting report. He certainly projects as a big league starter, but it’s more of a command/control profile which has been more than enough to feast on hitters at the lower levels. Even though his realistic ceiling may only be that of a mid-rotation starter, his control and advanced pitch mix means the floor is significantly higher than that of his contemporaries in the lower levels.
