Jake Odorizzi limited the Red Sox to one run in seven innings for a victory on Thursday.
A first-half disappointment, Odorizzi has allowed six earned runs in seven starts, lowering his ERA from 4.39 to 3.53. He's showing why the Rays had such a hefty price on his head in trade talks last month. Aug 25 - 4:17 PM

Jake Odorizzi gave up a single run over six innings in Saturday's win over the Rangers.

As has been his bugaboo all year, the Rangers' run came on a solo homer, but he was otherwise stingy, allowing six hits and a walk while striking out four on the evening. The win was his fifth in a row to run his record to 8-5, and Odorizzi now owns a 3.63 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 26 starts. He'll try to extend his winning streak to six straight when he faces the Red Sox on Thursday.
Aug 20 - 9:40 PM

Jake Odorizzi improved to 7-5 in Sunday's win over the Yankees, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

Quality start for Odorizzi, who struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. All three runs on his line scored via the home run, with young whippersnapper Aaron Judge swatting an opposite field solo shot off Odorizzi in the third and fellow young gentleman Gary Sanchez cracking a two-run dinger in the fourth. Otherwise, it was a smooth six frames for the 26-year-old right-hander. He will carry a 3.72 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into a home start against the Rangers next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 14 - 5:58 PM

Jake Odorizzi was charged with four runs over 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Odorizzi has been excellent of late but didn't have it in this one, giving up eight hits, walking three, hitting a batter and throwing a wild pitch. He entered the game boasting a 21 1/3-inning scoreless streak. Odorizzi will have another tough matchup this weekend at Yankee Stadium.
Aug 8 - 10:48 PM

Jake Odorizzi gave up only two harmless base hits while tossing six shutout innings to beat the Royals 12-0 on Wednesday.

Both hits were singles. He struck out six batters and walked two as the Rays rolled. The stellar outing lifts his record to 6-5 with a 3.70 ERA. He has a very nice 121/37 K/BB ratio in 131 1/3 innings on the year.
Aug 3 - 11:06 PM

Jake Odorizzi fired 6 2/3 scoreless innings in Friday’s 5-1 win over the Yankees.

The Rays have now racked up nine straight quality starts. Odorizzi scattered six hits (all of them singles) while walking none and striking out five. He has now thrown 14 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two starts to go along with a 10/0 K/BB ratio. He has improved his ERA from 4.39 to 3.88 in the process. He’ll try to keep it going next week in a start against the Royals.
Jul 29 - 10:30 PM

Jake Odorizzi blanked the A's for eight innings on Friday.

It didn't get him a win, as the game stayed scoreless into extra innings, but it was a second straight positive outing for the right-hander. Even if he hasn't pitched quite as well as hoped this year, he still has considerable trade value heading into the deadline. He has a 4.10 ERA and a 110/35 K/BB ratio in 118 2/3 innings.
Jul 23 - 12:39 AM

Jake Odorizzi came through with a nice showing in Sunday's win over the Orioles, surrendering two runs on seven hits over six innings.

Odorizzi allowed a sacrifice fly to Manny Machado in the first inning and a solo home run to Pedro Alvarez in the sixth, but otherwise kept the scoreboard free and clear from damage. He struck out seven and walked just one on the afternoon. Through 20 starts, the 26-year-old right-hander holds a 4.39 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 105/35 K/BB ratio. He has the talent to pitch better than that in the second half and will look to build on Sunday's performance when he hits the road for a date with the A's in his next scheduled start.
Jul 17 - 4:37 PM

Jake Odorizzi was decidedly average in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox, surrendering four runs on six hits over five innings.

Odorizzi struck out four and walked one on the afternoon. The loudest of the four runs on his line came courtesy of David Ortiz, who socked a two-run homer off the right-hander in the first inning. Adding intrigue to Sunday's showdown, the Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo reported prior to the game that the Red Sox have shown an interest in Odorizzi as a potential trade chip and are scouting him as such. He finishes out the first half of the 2016 season holding a 4.47 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 98/34 K/BB ratio through 19 starts.
Jul 10 - 6:26 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox sent senior vice president of baseball operations Frank Wren to scout Jake Odorizzi recently.

The Red Sox will get another look at the right-hander when he starts against them on Sunday. Odorizzi holds a 4.33 ERA on the season, but he's still missing bats and would make for a fine trade target, especially since he's under team control through 2019. The Rangers and Marlins also reportedly have interest.

Jake Odorizzi allowed seven runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

Possibly auditioning for trade suitors -- the Rangers are among those interested, per ESPN's Jim Bowden -- Odorizzi didn't show much to get excited about. He walked two and struck out four to go with the nine hits allowed. He's now oscillated between good and bad starts for roughly a month, adding up to a 3-4 record, 4.33 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through 18 starts overall. Odorizzi will get one more first-half start before the All-Star break, taking on the Red Sox on Sunday.
Jul 5 - 10:34 PM

According to ESPN's Jim Bowden, the Rangers have discussed acquiring Rays starter Jake Odorizzi.

Bowden says Tampa Bay wants a young bat in return and lists Jurickson Profar, Joey Gallo, and Lewis Brinson as possibilities. The teams are not close to a deal, per Bowden, but the "dialogue continues" as we near the All-Star break. Odorizzi has struggled a bit lately, but the hard-throwing 26-year-old right-hander still holds a cool 3.91 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 90/31 K/BB ratio in 94 1/3 total innings this season. He is under contractual control through 2019.
Jul 4 - 12:04 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in Saturday's doubleheader nightcap against the Orioles.

Odorizzi was staked to a four-run lead but wasn't able to hold it, eventually settling for a no-decision. The right-hander was done in by homers, as the Orioles hit three of them on the evening. He walked one and struck out one before exiting. He now owns a 3.93 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through 16 starts, numbers he'll look to improve upon Thursday against the Tigers.
Jun 25 - 11:45 PM

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Marlins have had preliminary contact with the Rays regarding Jake Odorizzi.

Morosi hears that the Marlins are looking at starters and relievers, so this is likely just some early due diligence as the club looks ahead to the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Odorizzi won't be arbitration-eligible for the first time until this offseason, so any trade would require a significant haul of prospects. The 26-year-old owns a 3.63 ERA through 15 starts this season.
Jun 20 - 7:28 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched well in taking a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits over six innings.

Odorizzi struck out eight and did not walk a batter on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came via a fourth-inning solo homer off the bat of Brandon Belt. For the season, the 26-year-old right-hander holds a 3.63 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 82/27 K/BB ratio across 84 1/3 innings. A road tilt with the Orioles shows next on his schedule.
