Astros pitcher Jose Urquidy not with team

Houston Astros pitcher Jose Urquidy has not joined the team yet due to an undisclosed 'condition.'

What It Means:

As no further details were given, it's hard to say what to expect with regards to Urquidy's return. We will hopefully learn more as the start of the season approaches.

Urquidy is expected to have a locked-in role as the team's fourth starter. Assuming he returns to the team before the season starts and gets the all-clear to play, numberFire projects him to pitch for a 4.36 ERA with 50 strikeouts to 10 walks, and 10 home runs allowed.
