Jose Urena came into this season as one of the two definite starting pitchers of Miami’s roster by virtue of his good first full season as a Major League starter at age 25.
Jarlin Garcia quickly became the third, along with Dan Straily. Garcia goes in game one of this series, but back to Urena.
Urena went 14–7 last season with an above average ERA and a WHIP of about one-and-a-quarter.
Well, his numbers are largely better this season, except for the fact that he’s 0–5. His WHIP is nearly identical to last year’s mark and while his ERA has gone up, it may just be due to some early randomness. He is giving up almost a full walk fewer per nine innings and has boosted his strikeout rate. He’s also kept homers down.
Yu Darvish’s strikeout rate has held steady over his Major League career, but he’s giving up more and more hits, especially in the last three seasons. This year has been no exception.
But the most troubling part of this season has been Darvish’s alarmingly high walk rate, which has doubled since last season.
Darvish is 0–3 in six starts so far this season. One month into a six-year, $126 million contract, Davish’s performance has to have the Cubs’ front office a little worried.
