Jose Urena

Before the talk of Jose Urena being on the table for trade discussion this past week, I thought he might get another shot to claim the team’s closer role.

That might still happen. There is also a good bet he will be traded to make room in the bullpen for another arm. Urena still has value both as a starter and in the bullpen.

Urena could be a solid fifth starter in a rotation or a long reliever for a contender. He is two years removed from a 14-win season and despite a back injury that sidelined him for the majority of 2019, he was better at times than his record indicated.

If the front office does make a move soon, he should be the first name taken off this roster, possibly before New Years.
