Julio Urias optioned to Oklahoma

The 20-year-old phenom will have to bide his time as he saves his golden arm for summer and fall. Even without a full rotation, it was doubtful that Urias was going to start the year in the rotation. Not when you have to manage his innings, and we hope those innings will be needed more …

Mitch White impresses Keith Law

  A couple of notes on Mitch White and Julio Urias.  Typically the Dodgers do poorly with second round picks but they may have gotten a gem this time. Keith Law chimed in on what he saw this week: White went with the 65th overall pick in that draft, but if teams redrafted today, he …

Urias ends season needing one more K

to tie Ralph Branca for most strikeouts for a Dodger by the end of their age 19 baseball season. Obviously,  Julio Urias holds the LAD record for most strikeouts for a LAD by the end of his 19-year-old baseball season, having passed Joe Moeller months ago. Joe had 46 and his record stood since 1964. …

This is insane!!! De Leon / Urias / Kershaw

Pitching in Yankee Stadium in the middle of September, in the middle of a pennant race. Sure, we all envisioned this could happen in 2018, optimistic folk might have felt it could happen in 2017. Yet, this is 2016. The future is already here and it came blazingly fast On the mound last night was …

Rookies Brock the week

The Dodger rookies faced down the Reds/Giants/Cubs giving the Dodgers a huge lift during a big week of games. It wasn’t your normal rookies either, sure Corey Seager was brilliant once again, but this rookie week was filled with wonderful antics from unlikely sources. Monday – Dodgers crushed the Reds 18 -9 and sure Adrian …

Julio Urias has Erv Palica next on his list

With eight more strikeouts Julio Urias is moving up the all-time Dodger strikeout leader-board for pitchers 20 and under. Julio already has the most strikeouts in LAD history for a 19 year old, so I thought I’d mosey over into all time Dodger territory. An area I rarely tread onto but I go where the …

Julio Urias continues to amaze

I don’t have the superlatives to describe what 20-year-0ld,  Julio Urias did yesterday against the Reds but however you want to describe what he did, it was exactly what the Dodgers needed, and the last thing anything should have expected from someone who just turned 20-years-old barely a week ago. Urias turned in six shutout …

Julio Urias making history

[2016 Postseason Update] Urias appeared as a relief pitcher on Oct 13th making him the youngest pitcher to pitch in an NLDS game. Urias threw two shutout innings, partial because of a 3rd base coach boner. It was the game that inspired the “Kershaw Saves ” T-Shirt and possibly the greatest NLDS game played by …

Julio Urias wins the first of many

It took Julio Urias seven starts to notch his first victory, but that will probably be the longest stretch between wins in his career going forward.  Eric Stephen broke down all the first time achievements for Julio , and I must admit I’m having a hard time picking my favorite. Was it the first major league …

Urias will be first LAD teen-ager to pitch at Dodger Stadium since Fernando

While most of the hoopla has gone out of the fact that the Dodgers have a 19-year-old pitching in their rotation,  it is still an extremely rare event. Just about every time he takes the mound he breaks ground that hasn’t been trod on in decades. No LAD teen-ager as has pitched at Dodger Stadium …
