“One of the people that I had to meet, two years ago I believe, Kylian Mbappe, from Paris Saint Germain. It was something very nice for me, because because I’m a huge soccer fan and he also wears the number 7, so it was something very nice. “

Urías and the Dodgers are currently battling in the division series against the San Francisco Giants to endorse the title won last year. The pitcher’s 20 victories in the regular season were essential for the Los Angeles ninth to be fighting in the MLB playoffs.

Even Club América has celebrated the triumphs of the Mexican pitcher
