"It's invaluable for Jonathan and Henry to see these games in September that are meaningful," Showalter said before Saturday's game against the White Sox. "It's such a teaching/learning tool that they're benefitting from what these guys have done to be in this environment."
Showalter said the younger guys will probably get more of a shot to show things in Spring Training next year.
"You can tell there's a process that they're taking in," Showalter said. "Some guys are different. Some guys don't get any benefit from it."
Urrutia had a big part in Saturday's 4-3 win over the White Sox in 10 innings, as he hit a pinch-hit single to left to start the winning rally before being lifted for pinch-runner Chris Dickerson.
