Brito said Urias’ command of three pitches was apparent when he scouted a national tournament in Mexico four years ago. Urias was 15 and already throwing 90 mph fastballs with command.“I said, ‘This is the guy that I’ve been looking for,’” Brito recalled.More recently, moving up a level has been a bit of a problem for Urias. He allowed nine runs in his first two starts at Triple-A at the end of last season. Invited to major-league spring training for the first time this year, Urias again struggled with command on occasion.One scout who followed Urias to Double-A Tulsa last year recalled a similar problem.“I won’t be surprised if he struggles at all,” the scout said. “He has a tendency to try to do too much, overthrow and lose command. It’s a youth issue. He settles in everywhere, but every time he gets to a new level he struggles a little. I don’t think he’ll dominate from Day 1.”Brito, for one, isn’t worried.“Struggling last year in Triple-A when they called him up, he knows how to pitch to the Triple-A hitter,” he said. “That can mean a lot. The struggles he had last year can make him a better pitcher now.”The Dodgers, at last, will find out for themselves Friday. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “For a pitcher,” Brito said, “he’s a good hitter. Like Valenzuela.”Brito signed Urias and Fernando Valenzuela out of small towns on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. Valenzuela won the 1981 National League Rookie of the Year and Cy Young awards at age 20; 35 years later, the temptation to compare the two pitchers is inescapable. Urias will be exactly 30 days younger than Valenzuela was when he debuted.If the peril of hindsight is an unmatchable degree of hype, its benefit is that Urias arrives in a virtual sheath of protection. The Dodgers have placed an innings limit on Urias this year believed to be in the neighborhood of 100 innings. He’s thrown 41 innings already at Triple-A — never more than six in a single game — and has not allowed a run in the past 27.Speaking by telephone from Mexico, Brito said Urias was well tended to long before he signed with the Dodgers. It began with Urias’ father, Carlos, a catcher.“He played in the local municipal league in Sinaloa,” Brito said. “His father never played professional ball. His father took care of him. His father was always watching him. One thing I know for sure, his father was a high-character guy, took care of (Julio).” So much has been written about Julio Urias as a baseball player already, it’s impossible that he could be only 19 years old. Magazine covers? Urias crossed that off his checklist long before reaching New York, where he will start for the Dodgers against the Mets in his major league debut Friday.Urias’ many weapons as a pitcher have already been scouted to death. His mid-90s fastball that occasionally reaches 97; his changeup, his curveball, and his command of all three pitches that belies his age. Add it all up, and the left-hander is the consensus No. 1 pitching prospect in baseball for more than one reason.Mike Brito, the Dodgers scout who helped sign Urias out of Sinaloa, Mexico, in 2012, had one more thing to offer on the eve of Urias’ debut.
