Jake Odorizzi yielded two earned runs over six innings Monday in a loss to the Blue Jays.

Tampa Bay's offense managed just one run on four hits as Odorizzi dropped to 6-6 on the year. He pitched well for the most part, allowing just three hits while striking out four. The 27-year-old right-hander will carry a 4.30 ERA and 1.26 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Mariners.
Aug 14 - 10:07 PM

Jake Odorizzi (foot) came out of Friday's bullpen session fine and will start Monday against the Blue Jays.

Odorizzi left Wednesday's game after taking a liner off his foot. He wasn't very impressive in that one before getting hurt, so even though he has a rather easy schedule coming up, he's a fringy play in mixed leagues.

Jake Odorizzi (foot) will throw a bullpen session on Friday.

Odorizzi left Wednesday's game against the Red Sox after being struck by a line drive but said he felt "really good" on Thursday and expects to make his next start. He'll test his foot out Friday and if all goes well, he should get the green light to start Monday against Toronto.
Aug 10 - 4:32 PM

Jake Odorizzi left Wednesday's game against the Red Sox with a right foot contusion.

Odorizzi was hit in the right foot by an Eduardo Nunez line drive in the fifth inning and immediately went down on the mound. Unable to put any weight on the foot, he needed assistance walking off the field. The injury looked scary, but in a silver lining, X-rays have come back negative for a break. The Rays are listing Odorizzi as day-to-day moving forward. He will be reevaluated on Thursday.

Jake Odorizzi left Wednesday's game against the Red Sox after being hit in the right foot by a line drive.

Odorizzi was hit by a liner in the fifth inning and went down in immediate pain. He was unable to put any weight on his right foot as he walked off the field. The Rays should provide an update as to the exact nature of the injury in short order. Odorizzi was just activated off the disabled list after missing several weeks with a lower back strain.
Aug 9 - 8:39 PM

Rays activated RHP Jake Odorizzi from the 10-day disabled list.

Odorizzi will rejoin the Rays' rotation Wednesday against the Red Sox after missing the last couple weeks with a lower back strain. Given his inconsistency this season and tough opponent, fantasy owners would probably be wise in benching him for his first start back.
Aug 9 - 3:50 PM

Jake Odorizzi (back) will rejoin the Rays' rotation on Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Odorizzi gave up two runs but struck out six and didn't walk anyone in a rehab start for High-A Charlotte last Friday to clear his way for a return. He's missed the last couple weeks with a lower back strain.
Aug 8 - 10:08 AM

Jake Odorizzi (back) will make a rehab start for High-A Charlotte on Friday.

Odorizzi was deemed ready after completing a successful pen session on Wednesday. He may need a couple starts to get his pitch count back up but it shouldn't be long until Odorizzi returns to the Rays' rotation. A lower back strain has kept him out for the past couple of weeks.
Aug 3 - 8:27 PM

Jake Odorizzi (back) threw a bullpen session on Wednesday.

Odorizzi is making his way back from a lower back strain which landed him on the disabled list near the end of July. Rays manager Kevin Cash said that the right-hander looked good during his bullpen work on Wednesday and could potentially rejoin the team next week.
Aug 2 - 6:45 PM

Jake Odorizzi (back) is expected to throw off a mound Wednesday.

Odorizzi landed on the disabled list last week with a lower back strain, but he was able to play catch Monday at Tropicana Field. Barring a setback, a return by mid-August appears within reach. Odorizzi owns an underwhelming 4.47 ERA over 18 starts this season.
Aug 1 - 9:24 AM

Rays placed RHP Jake Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

It's not clear who will fill his spot in the rotation Friday night at Yankee Stadium. Odorizzi failed to make it out of the fifth inning in his last start Sunday versus the Rangers and holds a disappointing 4.47 ERA over 94 2/3 total innings this year. He told reporters Wednesday that his back has been bothering him since spring training and is preventing him from properly finishing his pitches.
Jul 26 - 9:38 AM

Jake Odorizzi allowed three earned runs over four-plus innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Rangers.

Odorizzi gave up homers to Rougned Odor and Joey Gallo in the eventual 6-5 loss. Texas didn't take the lead for good until the top of the eighth, thus the no-decision. Odorizzi, 27, will take a 6-4 record, 4.47 ERA, and 1.27 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Yankees.
Jul 23 - 5:24 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed one run and one hit over seven innings in defeating the A's on Monday.

The lone hit was Khris Davis's solo homer in the fourth. Odorizzi struck out five and walked two in improving to 6-4 with a 4.37 ERA. His next start will come Sunday versus the Rangers.
Jul 18 - 1:12 AM

Jake Odorizzi allowed eight hits and seven runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Red Sox on Friday.

Odorizzi yielded a pair of homers while also walking three in the poor outing. Dingers have been a fact of life for the 27-year-old, who has now given up 20 homers in 16 starts this year. The loss was his first in over a month, dropping him to 5-4 with a 4.63 ERA and 1.31 WHIP heading into the break. He's been consistent, if consistently mediocre, for much of the year, but owners will hope for more in the second half.
