The 18-year-old Julio Urias is regarded as one of the Los Angeles Dodgers top prospects. The prized left-hander compiled a 2-2 record with a 2.34 ERA over 25 games pitched and 20 starts for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga this season.

With the Dodgers set to promote from within their organization once active rosters expand, Urias is not expected to be among the players called up. Manager Don Mattingly said it would be unfair to call up Urias to the Dodgers.

One reason is Mattingly doesn’t want to promote the young lefty to the Majors is it may be a premature move, which he argues could ultimately set him back further. Mattingly used Dee Gordon as an example and how it took years for him to get back on track after being called up to the team before he was ready.

Urias is the youngest player in California League and the youngest player to ever play in the Futures Game. However, it may be a year or so before Dodger fans see Urias pitch at Chavez Ravine.
