DateQuestionAnswer
2019-07-22 15:00:00 (link to chat)For all the talk of Gavin Lux lately, doesn't Isan Diaz seem like the premiere shortstop prospect for the rest of 2019, at least?
(Jeff from Miami)
For contributing over the final two months? He seems like a pretty good bet. The Marlins have no reason not to play him and even if Lux does get the call, the Dodgers have so many pieces he'll be tough to rely on in fantasy. Luis Urias has got the jump on Diaz already, though, and he could easily be the most valuable the rest of the way. (Darius Austin)
2019-06-10 20:00:00 (link to chat)I need to fill 2B for next season and beyond in my dynasty league. I have two ongoing discussions, one for Luis Urias, and one for Brendan Rodgers. Which discussion should take precedence here?
(AJ from Phoenix)
The short answer: Rodgers. The long answer: This is an exercise in ceiling vs. floor. I think Urias is more likely to at least be usable in fantasy leagues for all of 2020, but he might hit, like. 270 with 10 homers and steals. There's a better chance Rodgers flops, but also a better chance he hits, like, .280 with 25 bombs and 10 steals. So again, TL;DR: Rodgers. It's not really *that* close. (Ben Carsley)
2019-03-15 16:00:00 (link to chat)Are there prospects you are higher on than Brett & Ben? Also is there a type of prospect profile you are a sucker for?
(George from Earth)
Not significantly? I like Luis Urias an awful lot, probably more than the #34 spot that Bret and Ben have him placed. I really like the big contact guys, with a little bit of plate discipline and some flexibility. So pretty much I just described Urias again. (Mark Barry)
2019-03-08 16:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin--- I'd like to know your thoughts about two young 2B: Jeff McNeil and Luis Urias. McNeils numbers were especially impressive last year at Triple A, and he also hit very well after his callup----and for me Urias has an elite hit tool and may surprise with his gap power and SB ability----possible 10-15 in each category which is better than many have predicted-------but what do you think about both players?
(bob from pa)
I like McNeil, but the Mets have a way of screwing up playing time for non-veterans. Upside of 20 SB, and maybe stretching for 15 HR in a lucky year but more likely 10 dingers. High contact makes for a nice batting average floor.

Urias is the more exciting pick, with 15/10 capability as early as this year given the playing time. Grounders are going to limit his power upside and even his batting average, but .270/10/5 could be his floor starting in 2019.

If McNeil wasn't on the Mets, I'd lean toward him for 2019 alone. But long term I'd choose Urias for sure. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-09-18 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike, in a 16 Team Dynasty League I have one 4 year contract and two 3 year contracts left, who would you keep, Jo Adell, Drew Waters, Luis Urias, Chris Paddack. Who would you sign to the 4yr? Thanks
(Rich from New Jersey)
I'd drop Waters. Adell gets the 4-year. (Mike Gianella)
2018-04-23 20:00:00 (link to chat)12 team dynasty forever.. my Matt chapman and Buxton for his Luis Castillo, Luis Urias and Adam Eaton. Yay or nay?
(The old professor from New York)
Pass. Chapman is looking legit and Buxton, well, he can be great or just bomb as he's currently doing. The other package doesn't do it for me. (Eddy Almaguer)
2018-04-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)What hitting prospect, who is outside the top 50, has the greatest fantasy upside?
(cracker73 from South Carolina)
For this year? Making an impact? Maybe Jorge Mateo finds a way to get promoted, and he has some nice speed to help in a category where there are few impact guys. Luis Urias could give high BA and maybe 10 SB with enough playing time, but my guess is the Padres aren't in a rush. (Kevin Jebens)
2018-02-05 12:00:00 (link to chat)What grade would you put on Luis Urias's hit/OBP tool, and who on the list do you feel will has better one?
(Cameron from The John)
I don't really grade OBP. He's a plus hitter with a good approach, may not have enough power to keep MLB pitchers honest. It's probably the best hit tool outside the top 50. (Top 101 with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-07-06 12:00:00 (link to chat)Did Luis Urias get any consideration for that hit tool?
(Steve from San Diego)
He was in discussions. Divisive dude within the team. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-05-15 17:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Luis Urias in a dynasty league. I know there is no power or speed, but with the way he is hitting worth the speculative pick up?
(JP from TX)
I wouldn't. There are players like this who emerge/come out of "nowhere" who you don't have to burn a slot on. (Mike Gianella)
2017-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Luis Urias a 2B or SS when he arrives in SD and your thoughts on his upside ? Thanks
(Ernie from San Diego)
My understanding is that he's a batting average asset. The upside is non-existent. No power, no speed. It's very Joe Panik. (George Bissell)
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat)Does Luis Urias handling AA (small sample size notwithstanding) change his projection at all? Can he handle short in the majors, at least for a while?
(Jeff from Bay Area)
I meant to submit another Eyewitness on him at the end of the year last year and never got around to it. I put a 55/30/45/45/45 line on him after my first few looks, but noted later in the summer that he'd made impressive strides with his glove at second and had more power than I'd originally anticipated. Those updated #feelings continued to update further down the stretch. Revised line would've been something more like 60/40/45/55/50 at second. He's a very good prospect. Didn't see enough of him at short to give you a great opinion, though the arm would be borderline for me, and I'd have questions about the range. (Wilson Karaman)
2017-04-28 13:30:00 (link to chat)When is the earliest and at what position (2B or SS) do you see Luis Urias in SD ?
(Ernie from San Diego)
I'll say 2019 and at 2B, but I've also been wrong on him so far. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Luis Urias doesn't get much love..lack of power and older prospect? Do you see him becoming a top 30 prospect next year?
(Accudart from Vermont)
I doubt you'll see Urias climb into top 30 consideration in a prospect list. He's gotten off to a bit of a slow start this season, and there really isn't a high ceiling tool in his profile. There are a few things he seems to do adequately well, but that's not typically the type of profile that makes someone a highly regarded prospect. (Eric Roseberry)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this Kevin Garnett-esqu trade in a 30 team dynasty league: Andrew Benintendi for German Marquez, Jacob Nix, Brock Stewart, Chance Adams, Taylor Trammell, Luis Urias, TJ Friedl, and Ricardo Cespedes?
(Bob from Georgia)
I have no idea whether this is a good trade or not. It depends too much on too many things I don't know. I don't play dynasty leagues. Best guess: if you're willing to trade present for future, I really like the idea and several of these names. Go for it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Anyone in the Padres system you like more than most minor league evaluators?
(Philip from San Diego)
He got a little lost in the shuffle on their prospect-heavy rotation in Fort Wayne, but Enyel De Los Santos could be a decent starter and he doesn't get a lot of love. I'd have said Luis Urias a few months ago, but I think people are coming around on him. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Have you gotten to see Luis Urias at any point? He's having a remarkable season for someone so young for his level.
(Steve from SD)
Not in-person but I've caught some of his outings on television. Impressive pitchability for his age to be sure. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2016-05-16 23:00:00 (link to chat)Do you like Luis Urias? Dinelson lamet? Any thoughts on those padres prospects
(sdsuphilip from San diego)
We're BACK, baby! Chris Crawford just wrote up Urias in today's Ten Pack & I'll have something up on him shortly as well. I'm not *quite* as bullish on the hit tool as Chris's write-up, but he's got a sound approach and good hand-eye. He deserves a spot on the radar as a keystone prospect, yeah. And then Lamet I wrote up after his first start of the year. Didn't show me a CH, but hear tell it's okay not great. Enough to keep him in the mix for a back-of-the-rotation trajectory for now, liked the feel of his FB-SL-size/presence for high-leverage work a good bit though.
