Julio Urias is well known to any fan of the Dodgers over the past few years. His debut at age 19 had everyone excited for his future and couldn’t wait to see him pitch. But, after needing surgery on his shoulder, many worried about what that would mean for the kid. Well, we got to finally see what the young left-hander could do in a healthy season that didn’t have him “limited”. This year, Julio’s versatility was on full display and when it came time for the postseason he did not disappoint.
He not only started a couple of games but also came in as a “bulk inning” reliever and unofficial closer. In game seven of the NLCS, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts depended on Julio’s abilities to advance to the next round and when the Dodgers needed Urias to once again perform in the World Series, you could say he stepped up to the plate.
I don’t think I could even begin to express the feeling of relief when this not-so-secret weapon was called upon in the seventh inning of game 6 to, as we now know, finish the job. Julio stepped up, stepped in and helped propel his team to their first World Series title in 32 years. Muchas Gracias Julio. Muchas Gracias.
