GLENDALE, Ariz. — Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias threw approximately 40 pitches over two “innings” to live hitters for the first time in spring training Sunday. The 18-year-old left-hander struck out four batters: Alex Guerrero (twice), Chris Heisey and Joc Pederson.
Here’s his three-pitch punchout of Pederson:
Urias then struck out Guerrero and got Heisey to ground out in the area of the second baseman.
Here are all 18 pitches he threw in the second “inning,” including the strikeouts of Guerrero and Heisey. He also faces O’Koyea Dickson in this inning and induces a pop-up toward second base. The inning ends with a planned pitchout as Pederson stands in the box.
