Julio Urias was born August 12, 1996 and is a Mexican professional pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB). The Dodgers signed him on August 23, 2012, shortly after his 16th birthday.
Urías was promoted to the Dodgers to make his major league debut against the New York Mets on May 27, 2016. At only 19 years of age, he was the youngest starting pitcher to debut in the Majors since Félix Hernández in the 2005 season and the youngest Dodgers starting pitcher to debut since 18 year old Rex Barney in the 1943 season. His debut did not go well as planned, lasting only 22⁄3 innings while allowing five hits, three runs and four walks. He did strike out three, including the first batter he faced, Curtis Granderson.
Urias underwent three surgeries on his left eye during his youth to remove a benign mass. As a result, his left eye is nearly closed, but he is able to see through it. When asked about his eye condition, Urias, a devout Roman Catholic, said, "That's how God works. He gave me a bad left eye but a good left arm." On May 19, 2015, Urias had an elective surgery to correct the condition.
