Strengths: Urbina has a loose, quick arm and already sits at 88-89 mph and tops out at 91 with his fastball. He has plenty of projection remaining in his lean, athletic frame and figures to develop at least a consistent low-90s heater. He commands his fastball well and sets it up with a change-up that features good sink. His clean mechanics should minimize his risk of injury. He pitches like the son of a former big league pitcher, as he shows advanced feel for pitching and the ability to throw strikes.
Weaknesses: Urbina’s slider lags behind his other two pitches, though it does show some promise. Thanks to his bloodlines, he’s more advanced than most pitchers his age, but he still has a long ways to go and will require a lot of innings to develop. He’ll need all three of his pitches if he’s to remain a starter.
The Future: The Mets expect that Urbina likely will begin his pro career in the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League. Whether the Mets will push him as quickly as they’ve moved other recent signees such as Jennry Mejia, Wilmer Flores, Fernando Martinez and Ruben Tejada remains to be seen.
