Name: Joel Urena
Born: Aug 17, 1999 in New York, N.Y. USA
High School: Luperon HS for Math & Science, New York
College: Monroe (N.Y.) JC
Ht.: 6'5" / Wt.: 235 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: L
Drafted in the 7th round (224th overall) by the Texas Rangers in 2017 (signed for $150,000)
Urena was a 27th round pick of the Mets in 2016, but chose to attend Monroe College (N.Y.) for a year to boost his draft stock. He is extremely young, especially for a junior college player--he won't turn 18 until the middle of August. He's a 6-foot-5 lefthander with a clean, fluid delivery. His fastball works at 88-93 and he has plenty of projection left in him. Urena could be a steal on day two of the draft.
