Los Angeles Dodgers: Juilo Urias

He is a young, innings eating, strike-throwing lefty. It would take a lot of trade chips, but getting Julio Urias would be amazing for the Cardinals.

Urias is eligible for free agency in 2024 but it wouldn’t be a surprise to see either the Dodgers, or a team he’s traded to, sign him long-term to avoid arbitration.

In 2021, Urias had an amazing season going 20-3 in 32 games started. He had 185.2 innings thrown and tossed 195 strikeouts. Urias’ curveball is his put-away pitch. He also relies on a four-seam fastball and a changeup. He uses a slider and a sinker sparingly.

Urias will be a fun pitcher to watch. It would be even more fun if he were in a Cardinals uniform. As mentioned before, the Cardinals are always looking for pitching and this would be a good one to try to get.
