Bumped to 2nd tonight - Brown in top of the 1st on broadcast said it was first time this year.

I have to imagine he is more comfortable playing 2b.  I hope he continues to hit cover off ball.  He’s been fun to watch.

OrioleDog meant batting second in the lineup, if I'm not mistaken.

He has his OPS up to .785. He’s been worth 1.5 WAR. He’s 5th on the team in WAR. So far he’s earned one of the starting IF spots. 

I'm good with him being a starter (preferably at 2B) to start the 2022 season.  He's earned it.

Dare I say that he’s reached “nugget” status?  

I think so. Solid player. Always has good ABs. I wonder if he can hit the gym hard in the off-season and develop just a bit more pop. I like that he can cover any infield position so we have some flexibility while waiting to see which of our infield prospects pan out.

No reason he can’t be here for a little while as a starter/super UTI guy.

The bat has always been there.  

Better than the Mandino, in the good ol' days (the more recent ones).

At 247 at-bats now, roughly half a season, Urias' hitting stats are holding up: .275 / .361 / .413 / .774 (109+). The .361 OBP stands out to me, as well as his much-needed skill for situational hitting. Frankly, his ability to go with the pitch for a clutch single or double reminds me of Nick Markakis even--it's been that long! Plus, as several posters have suggested, he might be able to develop more power as soon as next year.
