Jose Urquidy: 8-8, 4.62, 1.27 WHIP

Jose Urquidy has only pitched 177 innings in the Major Leagues, so take what I say with a grain of salt, but I don’t get this projection at all.

Urquidy finished 2021 with 20 starts, an 8-3 record, 3.62 ERA and 0.99 WHIP.  Quick math says that a full run jump in ERA and 0.28 in WHIP. I doubt it, unless something goes horribly wrong.
