Julio Urías MLB Career with the Dodgers
To make his MLB debut against the New York Mets on May 27, 2016, the Los Angeles Dodgers promoted Uras to Triple-A. A rookie in 2005, Félix Hernández made his Major League debut at the age of 19.
Currently, the youngest starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers is Joe Moeller, who is 19 years and 55 days.
In his debut, Urias lasted just 2+2/3 innings while allowing five hits, three runs, and four walks. Curtis Granderson was the first hitter he faced, and he struck him out all three times he went at him.
As a result, he was reassigned to the AHL after the game. After Alex Wood went down with a concussion three days later, he was reinstated to the active roster.
The first pitch was on June 2 against the Chicago Cubs, his second start in as many appearances. He allowed six runs, five of them earned, in five innings of work, three of them solo home runs.
While he gave up eight hits, he also struck out four batters. With two runs and two hits allowed over six innings against the Milwaukee Brewers on June 28, 2016, it was his first major league victory.
This is a first for the Dodgers since Joe Moeller threw 100 pitches in 1962 as a teen pitcher. He appeared in 18 games for the Dodgers, starting 15 of them, with a 3.39 ERA, 84 strikeouts and 31 walks.
Pickoffs were a specialty of his, and he had six to lead the majors.
In game five of the 2016 National League Division Series, Uras worked two innings of relief and earned the victory.
He became the Dodgers’ youngest pitcher to appear in a postseason game at the tender age of 20 years, 62 days.
