Julio Urías has been unstoppable in August
The Los Angeles Dodgers ace revealed that he went through difficult times and even considered retirement because of injuries.
Julio Urías had a slow start of the 2022 MLS season with the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he has been able to turn things around and he is amongst the top contenders for the National League Cy Young award. He is having an outstanding campaign and August has been his best month.
The Mexican ace helped lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-1 trouncing of the Miami Marlins in game three to win the series 3-1. Through the month of August, Julio Urías has thrown 30 complete innings, giving up three earned runs in five starts for an impressively stingy 0.90 ERA.
In his last outing, the 26-year-old went six full innings, notching up seven Ks and walking four, surrendering just one hit and one earned run. This was his 25th game of the season, and his 14th win, and he has been fundamental for the Dodgers being in first place in the NL West.
A complicated road for Urías
It hasn’t been an easy road for Urías to achieve this level in the MLB, suffering a left anterior capsule repair injury in 2017 that had him considering retirement. He missed the majority of the 2017 campaign and all of 2018 with the injury.
“The 2017 surgery made me question my future, but I had the right group of people around me to help during my recovery and good doctors as well,” said the Mexican during an interview with TUDN.
