7/18: Urias recalled by Padres

Urias has established himself as one of the Minors' better pure hitters since the Padres purchased the then-16-year-old's rights from Mexico City for just $100,000 in December 2013. He won the California League batting title (.330) and MVP Award as a 19-year-old after opening the season as the circuit's youngest player, was a Double-A Texas League All-Star in 2017 and then received his first big league callup at 21 last August after a strong Triple-A campaign that included a Futures Game selection in July. Appearing in 12 games with San Diego, Urias hit .208 with two home runs before a hamstring injury ended his season.

Urias has innate bat-to-ball skills and produces hard line drives across the entire field with a compact, level swing. He has plus on-base skills because his approach, plate discipline and pitch recognition are all advanced, and he led the Texas League in on-base percentage (.398) in 2017 before posting the same mark last season in Triple-A. Urias has more power than his size suggests, and after adding a more pronounced leg kick, he got to it more often in 2018, en route to 10 home runs and 31 doubles, both career highs, between Triple-A and the Majors. While the uptick in his power came with an uncharacteristically elevated strikeout rate, Urias became more comfortable with the swing as the season unfolded and slashed .420/.480/.659 with 15 extra-base hits in August prior to his callup.

Urias' best position is second base, and he made all 12 of his big league starts there last season. He's an above-average defender at the keystone, with good lateral range, reliable hands and above-average arm strength that also enable him to play both shortstop and third base if needed. Overall, Urias profiles as a bat-first second baseman who hits for average and gets on base at a high clip from atop a big league lineup.
