Dodgers News: Julio Urias Has Been Taking Advantage of Down Time, Trying to Sort Out Mechanics

Dodgers fans, rejoice! We finally have some good news and an update on the injury of Dodgers ace, Julio Urias, who has been out with a hamstring injury since May.

According to a report from the OC Register’s, Bill Plunkett, Urias threw to hitters Tuesday afternoon in a three-inning simulation. The plan is to have him throw another bullpen session before a potential rehab start in Rancho Cucamonga this Sunday.

“If all goes well, then hopefully we’ll see him in Kansas City,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, “But we’re trying to be mindful of just one step at a time.”

Urias has been extremely eager to join the boys in blue again, and has been working on his hamstring and his throwing during his downtime.

“You have your routines, every day is different,” Urias said. “I’ve been waiting to work out my legs and when I’d do it, it wouldn’t feel strong. About a week and a half ago, I felt more normal.”

Even before his injury, the Mexican-born stand-out hasn’t been the pitcher the league knows him for. With a 4.39 ERA and 14 home runs allowed this season, Urias understands there is plenty of work to do when he gets back on the mound, and he has been working this entire time.

“I’ve been watching a lot of tape,” Urias said. “I like to watch a lot of tape, to go over some things and work on that consistency, find the things I was doing really well at the beginning of the season. …

“There’s things in mechanics but also things where I feel like when I’m doing well, I’m attacking hitters. I feel like that’s what I was missing. Now I’m trying to correct it and come back as fast as I can to help the team.”

Here’s to hoping Urias rejoins the Dodgers feeling fresher than ever.
