He also spoke to the media prior to Kenta Maeda taking the mound vs. the Braves about being called up by the Dodgers.
“In all honest I’m very happy taking on any opportunity they give me here. This is a dream come true,” Urias told reporters. “I’m just trying to keep working.”
It seems Urias understands the opportunity he has in front of him and is ready to take on the challenge.
“The truth is this is a dream come true and I’ve worked extremely hard to get here and now that I’m here I have to work twice as hard to establish myself here.”
Manager Dave Roberts announced on Friday Urias is slated to have his home debut with the Dodgers on Tuesday vs. the Colorado Rockies.
