The Mexican pitcher obtained his victory number 16, to be the leader of major league wins. We present the reasons for its success
Julio Urías achieved its 16th win in Big leagues and with this he confirmed his best season in the MLB. The pitcher has greater pitching control, a powerful 94-95 mph fastball, a bewildering change of speed and a waist-breaking curve that have him on top of wins.
The Mexican closed the season of the Big leagues, was a World Series champion with Los Angeles Dodgers, being key for the Californians to break a 32-year streak without a championship.
The 2021 season began for the ‘culichi’ taking advantage of the opportunity that Dave Roberts gave him as a starter; and the Mexican pitcher has not disappointed.
This Saturday, the left-hander achieved his 16th victory, his highest figure in this department. With that, Uriah he added eight consecutive starts accepting two or fewer earned runs this season.
He had never gone beyond five wins per year, in wins, his best campaign, was in his debut season (2016). He’s already surpassed that mark by 11 games won (and can be increased).
The Mexican has shone in several outings in this 2021, worked and overcame a faltering start.
In addition, the left-handed Dodgers, is not pressured by eternal comparisons with Fernando Valenzuela, himself Julio Urías, has said that he would like to make his own story.
With 16 victories in a season, the 21 of ‘Toro de Etchohuaquila’ in 1986 and those of Esteban Loaiza in 2003 (a mark of victories for a Mexican in one season) are far away and not because of the quality of the 7 of Dodgers, if not for the number of games left in the campaign
Uriah, with his 16-3, 3.17 ERA, 168 strikeouts and 1.035c WHIP make him a candidate to enter the Cy Young contest, although the competition will be tough.
The Mexican has responded to the confidence of his manager, surpassing his records and at the top of victories in Big leagues.
