2017 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: JULIO URIAS TO START THURSDAY, CHANCE HE COULD STAY

The Los Angeles Dodgers will promote top pitching prospect Julio Urias with the intention of starting him Thursday.  With Rich Hill constantly dealing with a blister problem that could necessitate a move to the bullpen, the opportunity is now there for Urias to permanently stick with the team for the remainder of the season.  Just 20 years of age, Urias was already dominating at Triple-A as he pitched to a 1.93 ERA and posted a very good 9.64 K/9 rate.  The only issue that still remains here is lack of control, which was an issue during his brief 77 inning stint with the Dodgers last year (3.62 BB/9).  This kid is beyond talented though and it seems almost a given he will graduate into a fantasy baseball ace before too long.  If you drafted Urias knowing he wasn't going to make the Dodgers out of camp, kudos to you.
