Jake Odorizzi surrendered a two-run home run to Starlin Castro in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees, the only hit he allowed over seven innings.
Tough loss for Odorizzi, who was almost perfect on the afternoon. Almost. Entering the seventh inning, the 26-year-old right-hander had not allowed a baserunner. He walked Brett Gardner with one out in the frame, though, and Castro promptly followed that up with a two-run home run. Through his first 11 starts (61 2/3 innings), Odorizzi owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 51/17 K/BB ratio. A home start against the Twins shows next on his schedule.
Nathan Eovaldi was sharp in Sunday's win over the Rays, firing six innings of one-run ball.
Eovaldi scattered six hits, walked two and struck out seven on the afternoon. The only run to score against him came when Evan Longoria notched an RBI single in the third inning. The 26-year-old right-hander has allowed just two runs over his last 18 innings (three starts) and has pushed his ERA down to 3.71 in the process. He will look to continue this recent strong trend in a road start against the Orioles next time he toes the rubber.
ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) felt sore after his last rehab start and is "backing off his planned assignments."
It's unclear how big of a setback it could be, but obviously it's not a good development. Ryu tossed four scoreless innings in his last rehab outing and had been scheduled to start on Monday. The Dodgers could have more on the left-hander's status later Sunday.
Carlos Gomez (ribs) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.
Gomez will play his fifth and likely final rehab game on Sunday. He's 5-for-17 with one homer in his first four contests as he works his way back from a bruised left rib cage. "I think he's feeling a lot better, which is the number one priority," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said of Gomez. "Getting production out of him is the second phase of this."
Christian Bergman (oblique) threw on flat ground Sunday.
It's the first time he's thrown since being placed on the disabled list with an oblique strain. Bergman is likely still a couple weeks away from a return.
Glen Perkins (shoulder) has resumed a throwing program.
Perkins had to be shut down for a week after feeling stiffness in his pitching shoulder. He will throw off a mound later this week, assuming all goes well. Perkins has been on the shelf since mid-April and obviously still has numerous hurdles to clear before rejoining the Twins' bullpen.
Giancarlo Stanton (side) will take batting practice Sunday.
Stanton is out of the lineup again, but he could be back in there as soon as Monday if BP goes well. The outfielder hasn't played since Tuesday because of soreness in his right side.
Jordan Zimmermann (groin) threw a bullpen session Sunday.
Zimmermann said he felt great during the session. He'll throw another bullpen session on Tuesday and if that goes well should be cleared to rejoin the Tigers' rotation later this week.
