There may be confusion. NFL rushing back Ezekiel Elliott is not a baseball player. It's conceivable you're referring to Mexican pitcher Julio Urías, who rose from promising prospect to Dodgers star.

Julio Urías's rise to Dodgers stardom is amazing. Urías, from Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico, was a promising pitcher from an early age. He joined the Dodgers as a 16-year-old amateur free agent in 2012.

Urías quickly advanced in the Dodgers' minor leagues, demonstrating his left-handed pitching skills. Despite hurdles like injuries and adapting to professional baseball in the US, Urías persevered and improved his pitching skills.  

At 19 years old, Urías became the youngest Dodgers starting pitcher in history in 2016, making his major league debut. Early in his career, Urías shown excellence, including a spectacular 2020 World Series performance, but also had challenges on and off the field.  

Urías's talent and determination prevailed despite hurdles. He became a vital member to the Dodgers' pitching staff in 2021, with critical efforts helping the franchise win its first World Series since 1988.

Despite facing challenges such as injuries and adjusting to professional baseball in the United States, Urías persevered and continued to develop his skills on the mound. 

Urías's journey from a promising Mexican prospect to a star with the Dodgers is a testament to his talent, resilience, and dedication to his craft. 

His success has not only made him a fan favorite but also inspired young baseball players in Mexico and around the world to pursue their dreams of playing at the highest level.
