Jose Urena (-0.3)
After holding down the Opening Day starter role for the second season in a row, Jose Ureña posted a 4-10 record as a starter / reliever for the 2019 Miami Marlins.
After opponents slashed .289/.343/.463 off Urena in 13 starts through the first half of the season, the Miami Marlins used him as a reliever post-injury. In 11 relief appearances, that already questionable slashline ballooned to .318/.362/.545.
What is Urena’s role going forward? I think a good question is, “Will Urena have a roster spot?”
Drew Steckenrider (-0.3)
Drew Steckenrider‘s season was greatly shortened after only a month. In his 14 1/3 innings, he only surrendered a 0.977 WHIP – all-star level, right? Unfortunately, six of the nine hits he allowed were over the fence, or 3.8 per nine innings of work. That level of ineptitude is unsustainable for such a gifted arm as Steckenrider, and I look for him to bounce back with a solid 2020 campaign.
