Urbina had a rough extended spring training and the skipper said the plan for Urbina is to use him “an inning or two at a time and get him ready.”
Looks like its just a performance thing. He was "pushed" to Brooklyn "ahead" of someone like Morris because they probably valued getting Morris starts and didn't care as much about Urbina and he was more tenured than those going to the pen in KPort.
Toby notes it'll be a 6 man rotation in Brooklyn (and there will be the same in KPort, presumably), so Urbina couldn't crack the top 12 starters in Extended this year. Sad.
Ynoa goes tonight, following by Dueling Luis' (Mateo and Cessa) and then Julian Hilario. He doesn't disclose the other 2 starters.
Just by guesses, I think Rainy Lara (he mentioned Urbina scheduled to go "after Lara" on Saturday) and Brandon Welch, but those are just guesses. They may elect to go relief only with the recently-drafted arms (they also have college starters Sewald and Bowman there) as they did last year for the most part, which opens up a rotation spot.
