We have already addressed this, but it still needs to be said. There is no place for Jose Urena with the Marlins anymore. The team’s 2018 and 2019 Opening Day starter can be a dominant pitcher, but he also lacks consistency on the mound.
Urena could still be a valuable puzzle piece to a contending team in need of a back-end starter or someone who becomes a long reliever. Because his chance to become the Marlins closer evaporated almost as quickly as his first appearance in September, it is unlikely he would fill that role somewhere else.
But he does have trade value, so he could be the first player discussed in a deal prior to the start of Spring Training.
