2023 Fantasy Outlook
Urias produced a fairly average line last year, slashing .248/.305/.414 with 16 home runs, 51 RBI, 50 runs scored and a stolen base in 445 plate appearances. He was right in line with his expected metrics, and he played well enough to earn regular run at second and third base. Urias' future with the Orioles is likely dependent on how Gunnar Henderson settles in at the major-league level. Urias is entering his age-29 season, so there's not a lot of room for growth. His ability to make hard contact (45.1 percent career hard-hit rate) is his only real standout mark, but Camden Yards' spacious left field will likely continue to see him rack up doubles at the expense of homers. He does have versatility in his favor, which should help him maintain a regular spot in the lineup. Read Past Outlooks

Facing multi-month recovery
3BBaltimore Orioles
Knee
October 3, 2022
Urias said Monday that he'll need 8-to-12 weeks to fully recover from his sprained right knee, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.
ANALYSIS
Urias won't require surgery to address the knee sprain that resulted in his placement on the 10-day injured list last week, but he'll still be in rest-and-rehab mode for the early portion of the offseason. Barring any setbacks that extend his recovery timeline, however, Urias should be back to full health in advance of spring training. The 28-year-old was a full-time infielder for the Orioles in 2022, seeing action in 118 games while slashing .248/.305/.414 with 16 home runs and one stolen base across 445 plate appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
Urias received his first extended run in the majors in 2021 and hit .279/.361/.412 with seven home runs, 38 RBI and one stolen base in 85 games. The 27-year-old doesn't provide much upside with his power or baserunning, which combined with Baltimore's poor lineup severely limits any fantasy potential. Urias should see plenty of playing time to open the season for the Orioles and will likely need to surpass last season's production to be a worthwhile fantasy asset in 2022.
After joining the Orioles in February, Urias spent the majority of the campaign at the alternate training site, though he made his major-league debut and hit his first big-league homer. Urias has a strong contact profile, regularly recording strikeout rates below 20% in the minors. Simultaneously, he struggled to provide much pop and stole only five bases on eight attempts since reaching the upper levels of the minor leagues in 2018. Urias will be nearly 27 years old when the 2021 campaign kicks off, leaving little upside left to squeeze out of his profile. His strongest opportunity to stick in the major leagues comes from his defensive versatility, as he primarily plays at second base but is capable at both shortstop and third base. Given the Orioles' current lack of depth along the infield, that could be enough for him to earn at-bats at the big-league level in 2021.
