Jake Odorizzi allowed just an unearned run over seven innings Thursday in beating the Marlins.
The Marlins did their best to make it easy for him by playing Ichiro Suzuki in right and Tomas Telis at DH. It's actually the first time Odorizzi has completed seven innings in 16 starts since he came off the DL in mid-July. He was much better before suffering his strained oblique, and the guess here is that he'll look more like the Odorizzi of the first half (2.47 ERA in 12 starts) next year. Oct 1 - 11:06 PM

Overall, he holds a 2.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 93/28 K/BB ratio across 110 1/3 innings. Next up, a home start against the Braves as he tries to build off of this successful outing.

He's flashed signs of his pre-injury self since returning from the disabled list on July 10 after missing over a month with a strained oblique, but there's still room for improvement and owners probably have sunnier days to look forward to with the 25-year-old right-hander. The owner of a 2.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 87/27 K/BB ratio across 103 2/3 innings, Odorizzi will face the Mets at home in his next scheduled start.

In 16 starts, the right-hander has a 2.76 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and an 82/26 K/BB ratio in 97 2/3 innings. Odorizzi is scheduled to take on the White Sox in a road start next.

Jake Odorizzi pitched decently against the Phillies on Wednesday afternoon, allowing two runs on five hits over five innings.

Odorizzi struck out five and walked two in the contest. Both runs on his line scored in a soft first inning via a double play and an infield single. This was his third start since returning from an early June oblique injury. He was flat-out dominant prior to the injury, but sledding's been tougher on the other side of the DL and he's clearly still working off the rust. Owners should remain patient. Even with the sometime struggles of late, he still holds a 2.85 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He'll continue to try to work his way back into the light in a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
