Monday's outing matched Urias' longest professional appearance, and it was the second time this season the 18-year-old has reached double-digit strikeouts. The contest was also his third of the season in which he allowed no runs, with last week's five-spot remaining the only time he's let runners cross the plate this year. He threw 70 pitches, all but 18 of them for strikes.
The youngest player in the Texas League by over a year, Urias now has a 2.18 ERA and 26 strikeouts vs. just three walks in 20 2/3 innings for Tulsa. He's holding opponents to a .167 average, and his WHIP is a stingy 0.73.
