Interesting news out of Dodgers camp, as 17-year-old Julio Urias is starting this afternoon’s Cactus League game against the Padres. Just to put things into perspective, he was born in August of 1996, less than two months after Tommy Lasorda managed his final game in Dodger Blue. Feeling old yet?
Urias, a native of Mexico, has quickly emerged as one of the team’s top pitching prospects. Checking in at 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds, the southpaw posted a 2.48 ERA and 67/16 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings with Class A Great Lakes last year during his first season of pro ball. Baseball America recently ranked him as the No. 51 prospect in the game.
