Urena's Improvements in 2017

What I really like with Urenas improvement this year is his ability to withstand rallies and not panic/implode. In past he would be prone to implosions, 5, 6, even 7 run innings and hes limited the damage to 3 runs tops in his worst innings this year. I noticed he doesnt cave in either by laying pitches over the plate. Either when the ump doesnt give him corner pitches or he gets in trouble/walks batters. He stays the course and trusts his command. Really enjoy watching him get more and more confident.

yep, i've mentioned this a few times throughout the season too - he has the ability to work out of jams which is a good sign.  It's obviously best not to get in those jams in the first place but he's shown the ability to consistently get out of them more often than not unlike most of our pitchers.  I think he has the ability to be a very good #3 - aka our staff ace next season and the foreseeable future.

Urena completely proved me wrong. I honestly thought he was one of the worst pitchers on a major league roster, but he made a lot of improvements and has become a solid average #4 starter. Props to @pollythewog and a few others on here (not homers who see it in everyone in a Marlins uniform) for recognizing Ureña's potential when I couldn't see it.
