2020 Fantasy Outlook
Urquidy entered 2019 as an unheralded prospect, sporting quality earned run averages and walk rates with middling strikeout totals. He finished his first full season since 2017 Tommy John surgery as a member of the rotation for the top seed in the American League. A velocity jump fueled his rise. He sat 90-91 mph with his fastball before TJS, but averaged 93 mph and touched 97 last year. His slider and changeup are quality offerings, but his top tool is plus command. In seven starts and two relief appearances at the big-league level, his walk rate was low as usual (4.2%), though his strikeout rate dropped to a merely good 24.0%. He had some gems and a couple clunkers, and when he was on, he looked the part of at least a mid-rotation starter. Entering his age-24/25 season, he appears poised to be the No. 4 or No. 5 starter on a team that has won 100-plus games in each of the last three seasons. Read Past Outlooks

Urquidy (undisclosed) threw off a mound Thursday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Urquidy is still building up his arm after missing the entirety of summer camp for undisclosed reasons. While this is a step in the right direction for the right-hander, manager Dusty Baker noted his return is not imminent. "The cavalry's a ways off," said the skipper, per Brian McTaggart of MLB.com.
