Julio Urias threw two simulated innings against four middle-of-the-order Dodgers hitters on Thursday.

If the reported results are to be believed, he was quite sharp.

Don’t read too much into one live session, but it’s encouraging to hear Urias looked powerful. He’s got his taste in the big leagues, and expectations are going to be sky high for the young ace.

Urias is one of the key pieces of the team’s future. His development this season is worthy of attention, and his innings cap will be a fascinating situation to follow, especially if it limits him in the postseason. Urias is expected to be Los Angeles’ No. 4 starter in the rotation.

    Great he’s doing well. But let’s please not saddle him (much less jinx him) with labels like the next Drysdale to Kershaw’s Koufax, etc. Sheesh, he’s a very talented kid.
