Top Jose Urquidy News

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Settles with Houston

    Urquidy agreed to a one-year, $3.025 million contract with the Astros on Friday to avoid arbitration, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    It's the first year of arbitration eligibility for Urquidy, and he's coming off a 2022 campaign during which he had a 3.94 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 134:38 K:BB over 164.1 innings. The 27-year-old will open 2023 with a firm spot at the back end of Houston's starting rotation following the departure of Justin Verlander in free agency.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Moving to bullpen

    Urquidy will move to the bullpen for the rest of the season, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The Astros have upwards of seven deserving starting pitchers on the big-league roster, and with six games left this season, Urquidy will transition to relief. He wouldn't have been a part of the postseason starting rotation, so this gives him time to get accustomed to his role going forward. Framber Valdez would be on schedule to pitch the final game of the season, but the Astros could also start Hunter Brown if they want to save Valdez for the playoffs.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Receives no run support

    Urquidy (13-8) yielded one run on three hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Friday. He struck out six and took a loss against the Orioles.

    Urquidy bounced back after a pair of disappointing outings but was outdueled by Dean Kremer, who fired a shutout against the Astros. The 27-year-old Urquidy has been tagged with 13 runs over his last three starts while taking a loss in each one. He's now sporting a 3.88 ERA with a 133:36 K:BB through 162.1 frames. Urquidy is expected to face the Rays at home next week.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Pounded for six runs

    Urquidy (13-7) gave up six earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings to take the loss in an 8-5 defeat against the Athletics on Saturday.

    Urquidy faltered in what looked on paper like a favorable matchup against one of the weakest lineups in baseball. The bulk of the damage came on a pair or home runs off the bats of Seth Brown and Chad Pinder. Urquidy has now had two rough outings in a row. He has given up 12 runs over his past two starts to raise his ERA from 3.51 to 3.96. The 27-year-old right-hander will look to reverse this troubling trend his next time out against the Orioles.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Stumbles in sixth loss

    Urquidy (13-6) took the loss Saturday versus the Angels. He allowed six runs on 10 hits, a walk and a hit batsman while striking out four over five innings.

    Urquidy didn't get deep into a lot of counts, throwing just 88 pitches (61 strikes) despite the crooked numbers on his line. It's the third time he's surrendered double-digit hits, and the six runs matched a season high. He posted nine straight starts of at least six innings from mid-June to early August, but he's achieved that mark in just three of his six most recent outings. The 27-year-old right-hander now has a 3.75 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 121:33 K:BB through 151 innings across 26 starts this year. Urquidy will look to get back on track in a favorable home start versus the Athletics next week.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Submits seven scoreless frames

    Urquidy (13-5) earned the win during Sunday's 9-1 victory over the Angels, allowing four hits and one walk while recording eight strikeouts in seven scoreless innings.

    Urquidy was staked to an early 5-0 lead and was able to work around jams in the third and seventh innings to deliver his first scoreless outing in five turns. The 27-year-old fired 73 of 111 pitches for strikes with 16 whiffs en route to his fifth start with at least eight strikeouts this year. With the successful performance, Urquidy lowered his ERA to 3.51 while posting a 1.12 WHIP with 117 strikeouts in 146 innings. He's scheduled for a rematch against the Angels at home next weekend.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Struggles with long ball

    Urquidy (12-5) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out five over five innings to take the loss versus the Orioles on Saturday.

    All three runs came on home runs in the third inning -- a two-run blast from Anthony Santander and a solo shot from Austin Hays. This was the second time in four starts Urquidy's given up multiple homers, and both of those instances came in home starts. The 27-year-old righty still has a solid 3.69 ERA with a 1.14 WHIP and 109:31 K:BB through 139 innings across 24 starts, but he's approaching his most frames in any professional season, trailing only 2019 (144 innings). Urquidy is projected for a road start versus the Angels next weekend.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Earns 12th win

    Urquidy (12-4) yielded two runs on five hits and two walks over seven innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over Atlanta.

    Urquidy coughed up a two-run shot to Matt Olson in the first inning before firing six scoreless frames. The 27-year-old has allowed fewer than three runs in five of his last six starts, posting a 2.52 ERA during that span. He lowered his season ERA to 3.63 alongside a 104:28 K:BB through 134 frames. Urquidy is projected to start at home against the Orioles next weekend.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Outdueled Monday

    Urquidy did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing one run on six hits and zero walks over 7.2 innings in a 4-2 loss against the White Sox. He struck out four.

    After getting through seven scoreless innings, it looked like Urquidy would make it eight with two outs to start the inning. However, with his pitch count creeping toward 100 on the night, skipper Dusty Baker decided to pull the 27-year-old after AJ Pollock reached on an infield single. Rafael Montero proceeded to let Pollock and three other runners score, costing Urquidy a possible win as Johnny Cueto and Liam Hendriks held the Astros to just two runs. Urquidy will carry a 3.69 ERA and 1.14 WHIP over 127 innings into his next start.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Hit hard, picks up win

    Urquidy (11-4) recorded the victory Tuesday over Texas despite allowing five runs on five hits, two walks and two hit batsmen while striking out three in five innings.

    Urquidy allowed three home runs but left the game with a 6-5 lead and picked up the victory. Marcus Semien, Corey Seager and Adolis Garcia all took the lefty deep. The poor showing ended a run of nine straight quality starts for Urquidy. He is 6-1 with a 2.82 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 50:14 K:BB in 64 innings across his last 10 starts, including Tuesday. His next start will likely be early next week in Chicago against the White Sox.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Strikes out 10 in win

    Urquidy (10-4) earned the win against Boston on Wednesday, allowing no runs on two hits while striking out 10 and walking none over seven innings.

    Urquidy was impressive Wednesday, throwing 70 of 97 pitches for strikes across seven frames and limiting Boston to just three baserunners thanks to a single, a double and a hit batter. Urquidy has put together a streak of nine quality starts dating back to June 14. During that span, the righty has gone 5-1 and lowered his ERA from 4.99 to 3.62.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Tosses another quality start

    Urquidy completed 6.2 innings against Seattle on Thursday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out three batters. He did not factor in the decision.

    Urquidy struck out only three batters for the second straight start, but he held the Mariners to two runs, both of which came in the third inning. The right-hander extended his streak of quality starts to eight dating back to June 14. Over that stretch, he's posted a 2.60 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 37:12 K:BB over 52 innings.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Strong in Friday's win

    Urquidy (9-4) allowed a run on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in six innings, earning the win over the Mariners on Friday.

    The fourth time was the charm for Urquidy, as he had yielded 17 runs (15 earned) in 13 innings in his three previous starts versus the Mariners this year. The right-hander showed more control Friday, throwing 70 of 105 pitches for strikes. The only run he allowed in this outing was on a Ty France solo home run in the sixth inning. Urquidy has strung together seven quality starts in a row, and he now has a 3.93 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 77:22 K:BB across 100.2 innings in 18 outings. He's projected for a rematch with the Mariners in Houston next week if the Astros stick to a six-man rotation.

  • Astros' Jose Urquidy: Handed loss in quality start

    Urquidy (8-4) took the loss during Friday's 5-1 defeat at the hands of the Athletics, allowing three runs on six hits with nine strikeouts in six-plus innings.

    Urquidy cruised through six innings before encountering trouble in the seventh, surrendering three straight hits that prompted his removal. All three runners crossed the plate, putting the 27-year-old in line for the loss as Houston was only able to muster a single run. Despite the defeat, Urquidy has surrendered three runs or fewer while pitching at least six innings in six straight starts. He concludes the first half with a 4.09 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 74 strikeouts in 94.2 innings across 17 starts.

    Urquidy will start Friday against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
