Julio Urias makes peace with long rehab road ahead – Orange County Register

PHOENIX – Julio Urias went through all of the stages of grief.

“I had a lot of emotions,” the 20-year-old left-hander said of his reaction to the news that he would need season-ending shoulder surgery. “You feel sadness. You feel angry. Everything goes through your head. You think about your career. You think about everything that you’ve done to get to that point. I tried to get out of that stage as fast as I could. Now I feel very motivated and ready to work every day.

“It was hard. No baseball player wants to have a surgery like that. But we didn’t really have an option. I’m glad that we did it. Everything is good.”

Urias underwent surgery on June 27 to repair a tear in the anterior capsule of his left shoulder. The recovery is estimated to take 12 to 14 months, forcing Urias to miss most if not all of the 2018 season as well.
