Dodgers News: Julio Urias isn't Focused on Contract Status

Several Dodgers entered this most recent winter as free-agents and out of all of them, Clayton Kershaw was the only to resign with Los Angeles. We said goodbye to Cody Bellinger, Tyler Anderson, Justin Turner, Trea Turner, Andrew Heaney, Joey Gallo, and more.

But we also brought in some help as well as have a very strong and talented team going into the upcoming season. Although Walker Buehler is not expected to make a comeback early this season or even at all, the Dodgers’ pitching staff will include Kershaw, Gonsolin, Syndergaard, May, and one of the best yet most under appreciated pitchers in the MLB, Julio Urias.

Unfortunately, many already think this might be one of the last seasons we see Urias rep the Dodger blue as he’ll be up for free-agency next winter. But even when asked about the future, the All-Star snubbed pitcher shared he’s only focused on the now.

Urias is expected to join teammates Austin Barnes and Victor Gonzalez in playing for Team Mexico in the World Baseball Classic which will take place a month from now. Then, we can expect him to put up another successful season on the mound as he finished third in Cy Young voting last season and also led the National League with his career-best 2.16 ERA.

Urias has spent all seven seasons of his career in Los Angeles and if his 2023 campaign is anything like his 2022 season, he’s expected to be a hot commodity on the market next offseason. But that’s in the future and like he said, all we can do is focus on the now.
