Tue Aug 808:50Gio Urshela To Have A Normal Offseason
Los Angeles Angels infielder Gio Urshela (pelvis) sustained a left pelvis fracture back in June, and it was reported that he'd miss the rest of the 2023 season. As of Monday, though, the 31-year-old is no longer using crutches and is expected to go through a normal offseason, but he still won't return before the end of this year. Before hitting the injured list, Urshela batted .299 with a pair of home runs, 22 runs, 24 RBI, and three steals over 62 games. The eight-year veteran is a free agent heading into 2024 and shouldn't have trouble landing a big-league contract.
Wed Jun 2118:52Gio Urshela Likely To Miss Rest Of Season
Los Angeles Angels infielder Gio Urshela (pelvis) is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to manager Phil Nevin. The veteran infielder landed on the injured list over the weekend due to a left pelvis fracture. The good news is, Urshela won't need surgery, but he isn't expected to be able to play again this season. It's a tough blow as Urshela's defensive versatility was a beneficial asset to this roster. Michael Stefanic was recalled to take the spot on the roster, so possibly he gets more playing time going forward.

Fri Jun 1600:19Gio Urshela Exits Early With Hip Injury
Los Angeles Angels corner infielder Gio Urshela (hip) was removed from Thursday's game against the Texas Rangers in the first inning after falling down while running out a double-play ball. Urshela said after the game that he couldn't walk and both his hips and knee hurt. Urshela will likely miss some time, especially since he was just returning from back tightness that caused him to miss multiple games. The 31-year-old is batting .300, but isn't providing much else with just two homers and a .703 OPS. He doesn't need to be rostered in most leagues.

Los Angeles Angels third baseman Gio Urshela (back) remains out of the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Texas Rangers. The right-handed slugger has played in one game since being scratched last Friday due to back tightness. It's unclear if Urshela is going to need an injured list stint. It sounds like the Angels are just being extremely cautious with their 31-year-old slugger. Luis Rengifo covers second base, while Brandon Drury is at first base versus left-hander Andrew Heaney on Wednesday.
Fri Apr 1415:12Gio Urshela To Rest On Friday

He's hitting .341 with three RBI, so he's earned a day off. Luis Rengifo will cover shortstop duties while Brandon Drury plays second base and Jake Lamb makes a start at first base on Friday.

Fri Nov 18 202219:58Gio Urshela Traded To Angels
The Los Angeles Angels have acquired third baseman Gio Urshela from the Minnesota Twins, according to an announcement made by the team. Minnesota will receive minor league right-handed pitcher Alejandro Hidalgo in return. Urshela enjoyed a strong 2022 season at the plate, slashing .285/.338/.429 with a 119 wRC+ in 551 plate appearances across 144 games. While his natural position of third base is blocked in Los Angeles by Anthony Rendon, he is expected to garner playing time around the infield, and has a chance to be the starting shortstop for manager Phil Nevin, who coached Urshela when both were with the New York Yankees.

Tue Sep 13 202223:53Gio Urshela Homers, Reaches Base Four Times
Minnesota Twins third baseman Gio Urshela reached base in all four of his plate appearances in a 6-3 win over the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, going 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk.

For the season, he's managed a serviceable .745 OPS with 48 runs scored, 54 RBI, and one steal. Urshela isn't a must for fantasy managers, but he's worth rostering during this hot streak.
Sat Jun 11 202213:27Gio Urshela Not In The Twins Lineup
Minnesota Twins third baseman Gio Urshela is not in the lineup on Saturday vs. the Tampa Bay Rays. This appears to be a routine day of rest for the 30-year-old.

Sat Jun 4 202212:00Gio Urshela Out Of The Lineup Saturday
Minnesota Twins third baseman Gio Urshela (foot) is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Toronto Blue Jays. Urshela exited Friday's game against the Blue Jays early with a sprain in the mid-arch of his left foot, and he's being considered day-to-day for now. It's bad timing, too, as he was hitting .359 with two home runs in his last 10 games. Overall, the former Yankee is hitting .270/.330/.403 with five home runs, 23 RBI and 20 runs scored in 48 games in his first season with the Twins. Rookie Jose Miranda, who clobbered two home runs Friday night, is at third base and is hitting fifth against Jays right-hander Jose Berrios on Saturday. Miranda is hitting just .185 in his first 23 big-league games, but he does have four homers and 10 RBI in 81 at-bats.

Sat May 7 202212:38Gio Urshela Starting Saturday's Game On The Bench
Minnesota Twins third baseman Gio Urshela is absent from Saturday's starting lineup, according to The 30-year-old is struggling again this season, slashing .241/.311/.304 with one home run, nine runs, and six RBI. He'll hand things over to Ryan Jeffers in the lineup, who's catching and batting eighth. Jeffers is batting just .220 but is slugging .441 with three home runs in 19 games. Across his 130 career games, the 24-year-old has 20 round-trippers. Fantasy managers needing a source of power from the catcher position can take a shot on Ryan Jeffers off of the waiver wire.
Sat Apr 9 202211:40Gio Urshela Heading To Bench Saturday
Minnesota Twins third baseman Gio Urshela will start Saturday's game against the Seattle Mariners on the bench, according to Luis Arraez will take his spot and bat second. Urshela, 30, was traded from the New York Yankees in the offseason. During his time in the Bronx, he slashed .292/.335/.480, but had just a .720 OPS with 14 HRs over 116 games a year ago. Arraez didn't start yesterday's Opening Day matchup but did go 1-for-1 with a single as a pinch-hitter. The 25-year-old doesn't have an everyday position, but given his defensive versatility, should get plenty of at-bats this season. He offers almost no power but hit .294 in 2021 and is a career .314 hitter, so he's a major plus in that department.
Fri Apr 8 202215:51Gio Urshela Hitting Cleanup In Twins Debut
Minnesota Twins third baseman Gio Urshela is hitting cleanup in Friday's season opener against Robbie Ray and the Seattle Mariners. This will be the Twins debut for the 30-year-old, who was acquired alongside catcher Gary Sanchez in the trade that sent Josh Donaldson to the New York Yankees last month. Urshela slashed .267/.301/.419 with 14 home runs, 49 RBI and 42 runs over 116 games with the pinstripes last year. He'll have an everyday role in Minnesota as the team's third baseman and if he continues to hit cleanup, he could wind up putting together some solid counting stats in 2022.

Sun Mar 13 202222:55Twins Acquire Gary Sanchez, Gio Urshela From Yanks
The Minnesota Twins acquired catcher Gary Sanchez and third baseman Gio Urshela from the New York Yankees on Sunday night in exchange for third baseman Josh Donaldson, shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa and catcher Ben Rortvedt, according to a source. The Twins traded away catcher Mitch Garver earlier in the week, but they'll now have Sanchez as their starting backstop. The 29-year-old's power is among the best at his position, but he's had trouble making contact and has hit a combined .201 over the last four seasons. Sanchez is still a high-end catching target, but this trade is a downgrade. Urshela, meanwhile, should serve as Minnesota's starting third baseman with Donaldson now in the Bronx. The 30-year-old took a step back in 2021 with a .267/.301/.419 slash line and 14 home runs in 116 games.

Tue Nov 30 202121:13Gio Urshela, Yankees Avoid Arbitration
The New York Yankees and third baseman Gio Urshela avoided salary arbitration on Tuesday by agreeing to a one-year, $6.55 million deal. Urshela will remain in the Bronx for at least one more season, but he wasn't as good in 2021 as he was when he posted an impressive .850 OPS over the previous two seasons. He had a final slash line of .267/.301/.419 in 116 games this year, and he finished the campaign as the club's starting shortstop when they moved Gleyber Torres to second base. Whether the 30-year-old remains at the 6 in 2022 will depend on whether the Yankees can land one of the remaining big free-agent shortstops like Carlos Correa or Trevor Story.

Tue Oct 5 202116:58Gio Urshela In Tuesday's Lineup
New York Yankees third baseman/shortstop Gio Urshela is in the lineup for Tuesday's Wild Card showdown against Boston.

The veteran infielder told reporters he is still experiencing some discomfort but said he feels better than the night before. Urshela, who will bat seventh, owns four hits, a home run, and two RBI in his career against Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi.

He's on the streaming radar for those in need of a third baseman/shortstop bat in their pivotal playoff matchups.
