Julio Urias is one of first four Dodgers reassigned to minor camp

The Dodgers reassign pitcher Julio Urias to minor-league camp

The first cut is the deepest, particularly if you’re one of the four sent out. And especially if you’re been hyped as much as left-hander Julio Urias.

But Urias, the 18-year-old wunderkind, was one of the first four players reassigned to the minor-league camp Saturday by the Dodgers.

Pitchers Chris Anderson, Ryan Buchter and Josh Ravin were also reassigned in the first cuts from the Dodgers’ 2015 major-league camp.

Despite his electric stuff, Urias looked like a teenager who could use some more seasoning in his two spring outings. In his two innings he allowed one run on three hits, three walks and a wild pitch, with two strikeouts.

Anderson also allowed one run in two appearances. The 2013 first-round pick had one walk and strikeout, and allowed one hit.

Ravin was impressive in his three spring games, not allowing a run, hit or walk in his 2 2/3 innings, striking out four. Buchter threw three innings, allowing a run on two hits. He did not walk a batter and struck out three.

Despite the moves, the Dodgers still have 58 players in camp. Their minor-league camp opened Saturday.
