2021, the year of the confirmation of Julio Urías in the Major Leagues

PIt seemed that overcoming the 2020 that Julio Urías had was very complicated, however, the Mexican pitcher of the Los Angeles Dodgers shone in 2021 and he was the winningest starting pitcher in the majors.

Julio left a good image in the season in which the Dodgers broke a long drought and won the World Series, precisely with the left-hander closing the game and leading the team to victory.

During the 2021 campaign. Julio made 32 starts, earning the trust of Dave Roberts, who until a year before used it as a real wild card.

Urías ended up winning 20 of those 32 starts for the year, where he only lost three games and finished with a 1.02 WHIP in 185.2 innings pitched. being one of the most reliable pitchers in Las Mayores.

Already in the postseason, Julio retired five players in four innings against San Francisco, bringing the Sinaloan to 49 strikeouts in playoffs, more than any other Mexican in history of the majors.

At the end it was not enough for Julio to get into the final shortlist for the Cy Young, where Max Scherzer of the Dodgers, Corbin Burnes of the Milwaukee Brewers and Zack Wheeler of the Phillies were nominated.
