Jason Urquidez
Name: Jason Carl Urquidez
Born: Sep 12, 1982 in Tarzana, Calif. USA
High School: Royal HS, Simi Valley, Calif.
Ht.: 6'0" / Wt.: 175 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 17th round (501st overall) by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2005
Arizona State senior RHP Jason Urquidez went 12-3, 3.41 while averaging nearly a strikeout an inning in 2004, when he was picked in the 11th round by the Reds. He chose not to sign, hoping to improve his draft position with another year in college. But the decision may have backfired as he went 7-4, 4.34 this season while striking out 71 in 87 innings. Urquidez has a complete repertoire but tends to be too fine with his pitches. He has a resilient arm, works at 88-89 mph, touches 91 and complements his fastball with a curve, slider and changeup--all of which he can throw from different arm angles.
