Dodger P Julio Urias Unlikely to Make Rotation

With less than six innings under his belt this spring, young Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Julio Urias simply has not seen enough action to justify a spot in the team's five-man rotation once camp breaks. This, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. 

Urias, 20, is seen as one of the top young arms in baseball. As a teenager last season, the Mexico native struck out 84 batters in 77 innings while posting a 3.39 ERA in 18 games (15 starts). Command was somewhat of an issue, as he walked 31 batters as well. 

Urias remains a tremendous high-upside fantasy add, but we can't expect him to see consistent action in the Los Angeles' rotation until further into the season. 

Roberts had previously indicated that Urias would not be used out of the pen to start the season. That's a clear indication that he will not be on the opening day roster. 

This is surely something to keep an eye on heading into the season and as the regular year gets going.
