Rangers' Jose Urena: Invited to Rangers camp
Urena signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday that includes an invitation to spring training.
Urena made a combined 10 starts for the Rockies and White Sox last season, producing an ugly 6.45 ERA and 29:22 K:BB over 44.2 innings. The 32-year-old veteran will probably begin the 2024 season as part of Triple-A Round Rock's rotation.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Urena: Tosses quality start in loss
Urena did not factor into the decision, allowing four hits and three walks over six scoreless innings in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Padres. He struck out three.
Urena finished the season on a high note, working his way through the Padres lineup without difficulty. The right-hander finished his season with a 6.45 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 44.2 innings with 29 strikeouts. Urena is expected to look for a new contract in free agency this winter.... See More ...

White Sox's Jose Urena: Takes another loss
Urena (0-7) took the loss Tuesday, allowing seven runs (four earned) on four hits and three walks over four innings against the Diamondbacks. He struck out two.
Urena struggled to get through the Diamondbacks order Tuesday, allowing three runs across his first three innings of work before leaving the bases loaded in the fifth with no outs. Through nine starts, Urena has taken seven losses, and he's surrendered four or more earned runs in two of his last three appearances. Urena is lined up to make one more start this week, closing out the 2023 regular season for the White Sox at home against the Padres on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Urena: Sharp in no-decision
Urena did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits over six innings against the Nationals. He struck out four.
While he wasn't able to pick up the win Tuesday, it was an impressive performance from Urena, who held the Nationals scoreless through his first five innings. In three starts (16.1 innings) with Chicago, Urena's surrendered eight runs on 15 hits while tallying 15 strikeouts. Overall, the veteran right-hander is 0-6 with a 7.27 ERA across 34.2 innings between the White Sox and Rockies this season. Urena is currently scheduled for a home matchup with the Diamondbacks in his next outing.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Urena: Remains winless
Urena (0-6) took the loss against Minnesota on Thursday, allowing six runs on seven hits while striking out eight batters over 6.1 innings.
Urena gave up a pair of solo shots in the fourth inning, but those were the only runs he gave up through six frames. Things fell apart for him in the seventh, however, as he allowed four straight one-out hits that led to four runs, with Kyle Farmer's two-run homer being the biggest blow and marking the end of his outing. Urena has been tagged with the loss in all but one of his seven appearances this season, compiling an ugly 8.48 ERA, 1.88 WHIP and 20:16 K:BB over 28.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Urena: Picks up another start
Urena is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Twins at Guaranteed Rate Field.
He'll be making his second straight turn though the rotation after he struck out three and allowed one run on four hits and two walks across four innings while taking a loss against the Tigers in his White Sox debut last week. Between stops with the White Sox and Rockies this season, Urena owns an 8.46 ERA, 2.10 WHIP and 12:16 K:BB in 22.1 innings, so he'll be difficult to rely on even in the deepest of fantasy leagues....

White Sox's Jose Urena: Contract selected ahead of start
Urena's contract was selected as expected Saturday ahead of his scheduled start against the Tigers.
Urena opened the year in the Rockies' rotation but didn't last a month before being designated for assignment, having posted a 9.82 ERA and 9:14 K:BB across five starts. He spent most of the middle part of the season pitching for Triple-A Rochester in the Nationals system, where he struggled to a 6.31 ERA. He could remain in Chicago's rotation the rest of the year with Michael Kopech moving to the bullpen, but he's unlikely to be a usable option in many fantasy leagues.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Urena: Takes loss in White Sox debut
Urena (0-5) took the loss Saturday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over four innings against the Tigers. He struck out three.
In his first big-league action since April 23, Urena fired 75 pitches and limited the damage to one run, which came on an infield single in the second inning. However, the White Sox lineup failed to provide adequate run support and the righty was tagged with his fifth loss of the year. The 31-year-old compiled a 9.82 ERA, 2.24 WHIP and 6.9 BB/9 across 18.1 innings in five April starts with the Rockies and posted a 5.60 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 3.4 BB/9 across 88.1 minor-league innings this year before getting promoted by Chicago. His season-long ERA now sits at 8.46, marking the seventh time in nine MLB seasons that Urena has posted an ERA north of 5.00 in his career. If he remains in the rotation, he is likely to make his next start at home against the Twins.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Urena: Joining big-league rotation
The White Sox will call Urena up from Triple-A Charlotte to start Saturday's game against Detroit, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
If Urena is able to turn in a decent performance against the Tigers, it's possible he remains in Chicago's rotation down the stretch, as Michael Kopech has been moved to the bullpen. Urena has put up a 3.38 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 21.1 innings in Triple-A since signing with the White Sox in August, but his 5.77 ERA in the majors since 2022 makes the 31-year-old a risky fantasy option....

White Sox's Jose Urena: Signs with ChiSox
Urena signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Tuesday.
Urena was released by the Nationals on Thursday after putting up a 6.31 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 67 innings with their Triple-A affiliate. He'll now get another chance in the minors with the White Sox, but he doesn't project to make it back to the big leagues based on his recent body of work.... See More ... See Less
Jose Urena: Released by Nationals
The Nationals released Urena on Thursday.
He signed a minor-league deal with the Nationals in May and registered a 6.31 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 15 starts for Triple-A Rochester. Urena was released by the Rockies earlier this year after walking more batters (14) than he struck out (nine) in five big-league starts across 18.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Jose Urena: Signs minor-league deal
Urena signed a minor-league contract with the Nationals on Wednesday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
Urena was released by the Rockies last week after posting a 9.82 ERA and 2.24 WHIP across 18.1 innings this season. He'll report to Triple-A Rochester, where he'll join the rotation and wait for a call from the major-league club. Given the state of the rebuilding Nationals' roster, he'll probably get one eventually.... See More ... See Less
Jose Urena: Released by Rockies
Urena was released by the Rockies on Thursday, per the MLB transaction log.
Urena was designated for assignment Tuesday and unsurprisingly went unclaimed on waivers. He has posted a 9.82 ERA and 2.24 WHIP across 18.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: DFA'd by Colorado
Urena was designated for assignment by the Rockies on Tuesday, Patrick Lyons of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 31-year-old re-signed with the Rockies in November on a one-year, $3 million deal, but the club cut its losses after he went 0-4 with a 9.82 ERA, 2.24 WHIP and 9:14 K:BB in five starts to begin the season. Urena is likely to pass through waivers unclaimed given the remaining money on his contract.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Can't get through fourth Sunday
Urena (0-4) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs on three hits and four walks over 3.2 innings during a 9-3 loss to the Phillies. He didn't record a strikeout.
Urena allowed a leadoff homer to Trea Turner in the bottom of the first, and it didn't get much better for the right-hander, who was pulled in the fourth with two outs after surrendering the lead. He's given up at least three runs in all five of his starts this season and currently sports a 9.82 ERA over 18.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Takes third loss
Urena (0-3) allowed five earned runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two to take the loss Tuesday against the Pirates.
Urena pitched effectively through three innings by limiting the Pirates to one run. However, he allowed a pair of doubles and a home run to the first three batters he faced in the fourth frame, ruining his performance. Urena has failed to work at least five innings in three of his four starts this season and has given up multiple homers in each of his last three outings. The result is a disastrous 9.82 ERA and 2.32 WHIP across 14.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Strikes out six in five innings
Urena did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over five innings during a 7-4 loss to the Cardinals. He struck out six.
After failing to get through the third in each of his first two outings, Urena's performance Wednesday was certainly a step in the right direction. However, it was far from perfect, and he was in line for the loss until the Rockies tied the game at 4-4 in the seventh. All three of Urena's runs came via homers, and he's now given up five home runs over his first 10 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Rockies' Jose Urena: Struggles again in loss
Urena (0-2) took the loss Friday, allowing six runs -- four earned -- on seven hits and three walks with no strikeouts over 2.2 innings against the Nationals.
Urena gave up back-to-back homers to begin the start to Alex Call and Jeimer Candelario and two more runs in the second and the third. He was hurt by his defense, but it's another rough outing for the right-hander that sees him fall to 0-2 with a 14.40 ERA. It goes without saying, but Urena is not a recommend streaming option for his next scheduled start next week against the Cardinals.... See More ... See Less
