2018 Fantasy Outlook
It is easy to look at Urias and complain about what he can't do. He can't hit for much power, at least not as a 20-year-old hitting non-juiced baseballs. He won't offer more than a handful of steals per year. That said, here are the middle-infield prospects who are better b... read more
It is easy to look at Urias and complain about what he can't do. He can't hit for much power, at least not as a 20-year-old hitting non-juiced baseballs. He won't offer more than a handful of steals per year. That said, here are the middle-infield prospects who are better bets to hit .300 in the majors: Bo Bichette and Gleyber Torres. That's the list. For the second year in a row, Urias walked more than he struck out while being the youngest hitter in his league. Don't be fooled by his listed 5-foot-9, 160-pound frame. Nobody is knocking the bat out of his hands. Urias is strong where it counts, in his wrists and forearms. He covers the whole plate and hits the ball to all fields. Much like Jose Altuve, his size actually works in his favor, as his smaller strike zone forces pitchers to come to him. The Padres acquired Freddy Galvis to play shortstop in 2018, so while Urias has been groomed at both middle infield spots, he will likely debut at second base, possibly as early as this summer.

  2. Luis Urias 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Signed out of Mexico in late 2013, Urias has been an above-average hitter at every stop as a professional, but 2016 served as his coming out party. He was the youngest player in the California League, but was arguably the league's best hitter despite not turning 19 until June 3. Urias is on the right track to be an above-average contributor in the power department, showing excellent barrel control and the ability to drive the ball to all fields. It's very difficult to find past players who match his age, position and level, but consider that Rougned Odor, who is also similar to Urias from a physical standpoint, hit five home runs as a 19-year-old at High-A in 2013. The key here is the age, the hit tool and the approach, all of which are huge marks in his favor. If he handles Double-A the same way he handled High-A, he'll be in the big leagues before his 21st birthday.
