Julio Urias could give the Dodgers a needed jolt of energy when he makes his debut Friday. But his time in the big leagues will be limited.
Urias, Valenzuela have plenty in common
Julio Urias naturally draws comparison to Dodgers legend Fernando Valenzuela, and with good reason:
- Both are from northern Mexico
- Both are left-handed pitchers
- Both are undersized (Valenzuela - 5-foot-11, Urias - 6-0)
- Both were discovered by Dodgers scout Mike Brito
- Both will have debuted at 19 years old

The only other teenager to start a game in the past 25 seasons has been Felix Hernandez. Urias is widely considered the second-best pitching prospect in the game and had a 1.10 ERA at Triple-A, although he never threw 90 pitches there.
