As the best pitching prospect in the minor leagues, Julio Urias has been finally called up by the Los Angeles Dodgers to start against the New York Mets in their season opener this coming Friday.
In the latest Dodgers news, on Friday Urias will be 19 years old and 288 days and will be only one of the youngest starting pitchers in MLB history to join the likes of Dylan Bundy of the Orioles and Felix Hernandez in 2005.
Twitter is definitely having fun right now!
