Slapped with 11th loss
PTexas Rangers
September 25, 2019
Jurado (7-11) took the loss Tuesday as the Rangers were downed 12-10 by the Red Sox, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits over three innings of relief. He struck out one.
ANALYSIS
Edinson Volquez got tagged for four runs in the first inning as the opener, but Jurado didn't fare much better as the Rangers' primary pitcher for the night. The right-hander is likely done for the season, and he'll wrap up his second MLB campaign with a 5.81 ERA and 81:36 K:BB through 122.1 innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Jurado has shown advanced control for his age, along with the ability to keep the ball down in the zone. Using his best pitch, the sinking two-seam fastball, Jurado posted a 2.0 GB/FB ratio between High-A and Double-A in 2016. Jurado also walked just 34 batters in 123 innings. He does not have massive strikeout potential, and he does not have a huge frame, though he did fan 106 batters in those 123 innings. Jurado also has improving secondary pitches, most notably a changeup and curveball. Overall, the 6-foot-1 righty notched a 3.66 ERA last season, but his most impressive feat was posting a 3.86 ERA in the California League while pitching half his games at High Desert, one of the most hitter-friendly parks in the minors. Jurado will pitch in the majors, perhaps as early as the second half of this season, and he has all the tools to make it as a back-end starter.
Just by glancing at Jurado’s professional numbers, it is hard not to get overly excited about the 20-year-old righty. His 2.45 ERA last season at Low-A Hickory was the highest mark of his three-year run as a professional, and he has never had a WHIP higher than 1.11 in 186.2 innings across rookie ball and Low-A. Jurado also boasts an insane 177:23 K:BB over that span, which should be enough for him to get on the radar of most dynasty league owners. Unfortunately, his gaudy numbers do not match the scouting report. He certainly projects as a big league starter, but it’s more of a command/control profile which has been more than enough to feast on hitters at the lower levels. Even though his realistic ceiling may only be that of a mid-rotation starter, his control and advanced pitch mix means the floor is significantly higher than that of his contemporaries in the lower levels.
