Jose Urquidy – 76

Injuries limited Jose Urquidy to 20 starts in 2021, but he only allowed 7.6 hits and 1.6 hits per nine innings over 107 innings. As we’ll see, that 1.6 number is outstanding among Astros pitchers.  Urquidy had the second lowest strikeout rate for the Astros starters, the lowest base on balls rate and second lowest BABIP.
