Brewers' Luis Urias: Moves down in order

Urias will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Rockies. Urias led off and scored three runs in Saturday's 6-5 win, but he'll move down in the batting order with Kolten Wong back in the lineup after a one-game respite. Now that Wong has overcome the oblique injury that sidelined him for two weeks, Urias will likely find himself in the bottom third of the batting order on a more frequent basis.

Brewers' Luis Urias: Homers, steals base

Urias went 2-for-2 with a solo homer, a walk, two runs scored and a stolen base in Friday's 6-5 loss to the Rockies. Urias put Milwaukee on the board with a solo shot in the third inning, his eighth long ball of the year but his first since June 3. He reached base in each of his four plate appearances and later recorded his third steal of the season after he was hit by a pitch. The 24-year-old infielder is sporting a .755 OPS with 20 extra-base hits and 30 RBI through 234 plate appearances.

Brewers' Luis Urias: Knocks in all three runs in loss

Urias went 2-for-5 with a double and three RBI in Thursday's 7-3 loss to Colorado. Urias accounted for two of Milwaukee's three hits in the contest, and he cleared the bases with a three-run double in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old was in an 0-for-10 rut entering Thursday's game. He's posted a lackluster .223/.326/.396 slash line with seven home runs, 29 RBI, 25 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases across 230 plate appearances this year. With Kolten Wong (oblique) expected to return from the injured list Friday, Urias will likely serve as Milwaukee's full-time third baseman going forward.

Luis Urias is finding his power stroke

When the Brewers acquired Luis Urias in November 2019, he was seen as a replacement for Orlando Arcia at shortstop. Arcia was one of the worst offensive players in franchise history. The Brewers had hinted that they were growing impatient with him and searching for an upgrade. Urias was ranked as the #3 prospect in the San Diego Padres organization and the #31 prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America in 2019. Scouts were impressed by his quick bat speed, plate discipline, and ability to hit to all fields. They projected him as a potential .300 hitter.

Brewers' Luis Urias: Cranks seventh homer

Urias went 1-for-2 with a solo home run Thursday against the Diamondbacks. He was not in the starting lineup but was forced into action after Kolten Wong suffered an oblique injury. Urias took advantage of the opportunity by cranking a home run in his first plate appearance of the game. He now has seven long balls on the season, including one in each of his last two appearances. If Wong is sidelined for any additional time, Urias is likely to see more regular opportunities.

Brewers' Luis Urias: Belts sixth homer

Urias went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 10-7 loss to the Tigers. The ball was flying at American Family Field as the two teams combined for nine homers, and Urias got in on the fun with a ninth-inning blast off Gregory Soto, his sixth home run of the year. The infielder has five hits and four RBI in his last three games, and with Travis Shaw mired in a 4-for-40 slump, Urias has become more than just a platoon option against lefties at third base for the Brewers.
