it's still the most recent i could find
Should have traded him for A-Rod.
I actually liked A Rod. He trolled so hard.
My favorite was when Ryan Dumpster drilled him on purpose and he responded by dropping a bomb.
tb is really andy mccullough
either that or he's banging him
yeah, probably the latter
Urias headed back to LA as concern about shoulder mounts
by Andy McCullough | Los Angeles Times — 5 hours ago
Julio Urias is expected to return to Los Angeles amid heightened concern about the severity of the injury to his left shoulder, according to people familiar with the situation.
Urias, the Dodgers’ top pitching prospect, has been resting at the team’s Arizona training complex at Camelback Ranch. He was examined this week by team doctor Neal ElAttrache.
An initial scan of Urias’ shoulder revealed only inflammation, according to the information manager Dave Roberts relayed last week. There is concern that the injury could be more serious than that. Andrew Friedman, the president of baseball operations, indicated he could not delve into the details of Urias’ situation.
"We don't have anything definitive to share at this point on Julio,” Friedman said. “We are actively talking through it and will hopefully have something more substantive to share soon.”
The triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers put Urias, 20, on the minor league disabled list June 14. Urias reported discomfort in his shoulder after an outing four days before.
A precocious talent, Urias has presented a logistical puzzle for the Dodgers during the last three seasons. The team has worried about over-using him and exposing him to a workload his body could not handle.
Urias missed time in 2015 after undergoing eye surgery. In 2016, he became the first teenager to pitch for the Dodgers since Fernando Valenzuela. Once he joined the club, Urias shifted between the rotation and the bullpen, before settling into a starting role in August. He finished with a career-high 127 2/3 innings, including 5 2/3 in the playoffs.
The team intended to limit his innings for 2017. Urias arrived at camp with the rest of the starting pitchers believing he could compete for a spot in the opening-day rotation. The team held him back for most of March and he opened the regular season in the minors.
After three appearances in Oklahoma City, Urias got promoted to the majors. He stumbled as he failed to command his pitches, resulting in more walks than strikeouts. The team sent him to Oklahoma City after he produced a 5.40 earned-run average in five starts. The hope was Urias could refine his delivery in the minors before rejoining the Dodgers later in the summer.
Those plans may be compromised. More clarity could come when Urias gets checked out.
“Hopefully we’ll know more,” Roberts said. “I hope we have some direction, because I don’t know right now. It’s still kind of fuzzy, trying to sift through some information. I know Julio’s going to be here — I’m hoping this weekend. But as far as on the medical side, I don’t have any more information.”

Shoulder surgery. Fuck. Just awful news. That surgery is hard to come back from. Fuck. Feel awful for him, and we might be deprived of an amazing career
Shit. So much for babying him.
out 12-14 months :jumpcliff:
What an asset wasted. Nobody's fault. Just sucks though
He truly was a special case. Advanced at that age without filling out yet? Fuck. Who knows what the perfect way to deal with him was but IMO, doesn't matter. All that matters is that he's hurt rather badly and it really fucking sucks.
FUCKTARD genius on display
same surgery that ended johan santana's career
Bummer for him and his career but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be much happier to have accidentally read about this in some random Chicago sports rag. This guy had all sorts of drama and circumstance hanging around him and should have been traded when he was built up to the sky to the whole of MLB, which he was. He was not like Cody Bellinger at all in that regard so spare me the "Gotta keep all the hot prospects" crap bc that's all they are, prospects. PROVEN AND RELIABLE talent cannot be scoffed at when you have the chance to grab it.
Not the FOs fault imo.
if anything they were too careful
can't predict injuries... sadly
he's still young so i'm going to think realistic positive thoughts for him
maybe he can be a killer relief pitcher
i get those saying he was perhaps overrated but how exactly do you know that?
gotta go w the guys that see him everyday
Careful is one thing but they treated him like a Toronto Safe Zone student and if they saw him everyday they had to have had a reason. Who knows, maybe they were trying to avoid the rap that was growing that they were knowingly trading damaged goods and it bit them hard? Sucks for us but you have to acknowledge the possibility.
This kid had the tools, man. I take the gamble on Urias leading the rotation for a decade over some fucking Braun or Villar type shit fucking deal.
Hope he bounces back, such a shame for us and him.
