Urias No. 3 on prospect list

Julio Urias is working under a pretty tight pitch count -- his max in any one outing has been 82 pitches -- while also showing great control. He has walked one batter or zero in six of his eight starts so far this season. The Dodgers could reap the benefits of his skills right away as a long reliever if they called him up.

Schefter on potential Super Bowl destinations (1:17)

Jayson Stark ESPN Senior Writer 

When Clayton Kershaw starts, the Dodgers play like a 146-win team (9-1, .900 win pct). With anyone else pitching, they play like a 99-loss team (14-22, .389 win pct). So to recap: With him out there they're the greatest team in history. With anyone else they'd pick first in the draft.
