Nationals' Jose Urena: Signs minor-league deal
Urena signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Urena was released by the Rockies last week after posting a 9.82 ERA and 2.24 WHIP across 18.1 innings this season. He'll report to Triple-A Rochester, where he'll join the rotation and wait for a call from the major-league club. Given the state of the rebuilding Nationals' roster, he'll probably get one eventually.... See More ... See Less
Jose Urena: Released by Rockies
Urena was released by the Rockies on Thursday, per the MLB transaction log.
Urena was designated for assignment Tuesday and unsurprisingly went unclaimed on waivers. He has posted a 9.82 ERA and 2.24 WHIP across 18.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: DFA'd by Colorado
Urena was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Tuesday, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 31-year-old re-signed with the Rockies in November on a one-year, $3 million deal, but the club cut its losses after he went 0-4 with a 9.82 ERA, 2.24 WHIP and 9:14 K:BB in five starts to begin the season. Urena is likely to pass through waivers unclaimed given the remaining money on his contract.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Can't get through fourth Sunday
Urena (0-4) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on three hits and four walks over 3.2 innings during a 9-3 loss to the Phillies. He didn't record a strikeout.
Urena allowed a leadoff homer to Trea Turner in the bottom of the first, and it didn't get much better for the right-hander, who was pulled in the fourth with two outs after surrendering the lead. He's given up at least three runs in all five of his starts this season and currently sports a 9.82 ERA over 18.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Takes third loss
Urena (0-3) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two to take the loss Tuesday against the Pirates.
Urena pitched effectively through three innings by limiting the Pirates to one run. However, he allowed a pair of doubles and a home run to the first three batters he faced in the fourth frame, ruining his performance. Urena has failed to work at least five innings in three of his four starts this season and has given up multiple homers in each of his last three outings. The result is a disastrous 9.82 ERA and 2.32 WHIP across 14.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Strikes out six in five innings
Urena did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over five innings during a 7-4 loss to the Cardinals. He struck out six.
After failing to get through the third in each of his first two outings, Urena's performance Wednesday was certainly a step in the right direction. However, it was far from perfect, and he was in line for the loss until the Rockies tied the game at 4-4 in the seventh. All three of Urena's runs came via homers, and he's now given up five home runs over his first 10 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Struggles again in loss
Urena (0-2) took the loss Friday, allowing six runs -- four earned -- on seven hits and three walks with no strikeouts over 2.2 innings against the Nationals.
Urena gave up back-to-back homers to begin the start to Alex Call and Jeimer Candelario and two more runs in the second and the third. He was hurt by his defense, but it's another rough outing for the right-hander that sees him fall to 0-2 with a 14.40 ERA. It goes without saying, but Urena is not a recommend streaming option for his next scheduled start next week against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Pulled in third in loss
Urena (0-1) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks over 2.1 innings against the Padres. He struck out zero.
Urena allowed a two-run homer in the first inning to Xander Bogaerts, and he gave up a two-run double to Matt Carpenter in the third. Urena threw 40 of 71 pitches for strikes, and he did not fool the San Diego hitters throughout the outing. Urena is a tough sell for fantasy, but he's scheduled to face a beatable Washington lineup next week.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Re-signs with Colorado
Urena agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Rockies on Friday, which includes a club option for 2024, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.
The veteran right-hander began 2022 in a relief role for the Brewers but was let go in May and joined the Rockies. He worked as a starter in Colorado and had a 5.14 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 60:38 K:BB across 89.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Pitches well in no-decision
Urena did not factor in the decision against the Dodgers on Monday, allowing one run on five hits and no walks while striking out four batters over six innings.
The Dodgers have wrapped up MLB's best regular-season record, but that didn't intimidate Urena as he logged one of his best starts of the campaign. The right-hander gave up only one run (on a Trayce Thompson solo homer) and didn't walk any batters for just the second time this season. It was the culmination of a nice late-season turnaround for Urena, who had a 6.13 ERA after a poor start Sept. 4 but has since lowered that to 5.01 by giving up just seven earned runs over 28 innings across his subsequent five starts....

Rockies' Jose Urena: Takes loss Wednesday
Urena (3-8) was tagged with the loss against San Francisco on Wednesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and four walks while striking out six batters over five innings.
Urena tied his season high with six strikeouts in the contest, but he also issued a season-high four walks. He needed 96 pitches to get through five frames and ended up with his second loss to the Giants over the past week. Urena made five starts in September, posting a 3.95 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 27.1 innings while registering an 0-3 record.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Punches out six in loss
Urena (3-7) allowed two earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six across 5.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Giants.
The big swing against Urena came on a solo home run by Mike Yastrzemski in the sixth inning. Otherwise, the right-hander generated an impressive 15 swinging strikes on 94 total pitches and also induced six groundball outs. He's pitched well across his last three starts, maintaining a 2.12 ERA across 17 frames. However, for the season, Urena still owns a 5.34 ERA with a 53:39 K:BB in 86 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Quality start on road
Urena did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing one run on seven hits and two walks over six innings against the Cubs. He struck out four.
Urena allowed an RBI single from P.J. Higgins with two outs in the fifth inning for the first run of the game. The righty has been awful overall in his last 10 starts with a 7.03 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over 48.2 innings; however, the 31-year-old has allowed only one run in back-to-back outings and has gone five straight without surrendering a home run....

Rockies' Jose Urena: Effective in no-decision
Urena pitched 5.1 innings against Arizona on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five batters. He did not factor in the decision.
Urena allowed just a fourth-inning run and didn't give up any extra-base hits, but Colorado's offense wasn't able to get on the board until after he departed in the sixth frame. It was nonetheless a nice bounce-back performance for the right-hander after he was punished for seven runs (six earned) over 5.1 frames in his previous start. Urena's home park and vulnerability to blow-ups make him difficult to roster in fantasy, though he's pitched at least five innings while giving up three or fewer runs in four of his past seven outings....

Rockies' Jose Urena: Sloppy in sixth loss
Urena (3-6) allowed seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and a walk while striking out just one over 5.1 innings, taking the loss in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Reds.
Urena allowed the Reds to piece together a five-run rally in the fourth inning, though a Ryan McMahon throwing error didn't help the cause. In the sixth, the Reds started building again before manager Bud Black went to the bullpen. Urena was responsible for two of the Reds' five runs in the sixth. This was the fifth time in his last nine outings that the 30-year-old righty has allowed at least four earned runs. He has a 6.13 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 38:34 K:BB through 69 innings across 16 outings (12 starts) between the Rockies and the Brewers this year. Urena is projected for a home start versus Arizona next weekend.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Five innings in win
Urena (3-5) earned the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over five innings against Atlanta. He struck out six.
Despite failing to record a clean inning, Urena was able to hold Atlanta to two runs and earn his third win of the season. More impressive was that the outing came at home, where he sported a 7.36 ERA entering Tuesday. The surprise performance is unlikely to be repeatable as Urena carries an ugly 5.18 xFIP and 5.54 xERA on the season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Serves up nine earned runs
Urena (2-5) allowed nine earned runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out one across 1.1 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Rangers.
Urena allowed two earned runs in the first inning, but he really imploded in the second frame when he allowed eight of the nine batters he faced to reach base. Entering Wednesday's start, Urena had turned in quality starts in two of his last three outings -- though he had only a 10:7 K:BB across 18.2 frames in that span. Urena now has a 5.98 ERA with a 31:31 K:BB in 58.2 innings for the season.... See More ... See Less
