Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Thursday.

He was cleared for game action after competing a 51-pitch live batting practice session on Saturday with no issues. There's a chance Odorizzi will have to make two rehab starts, although it's likely he'll need just the one if all goes well. He's been on the shelf since early June with a left oblique strain.
Jun 28 - 11:38 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) isn't expected to rejoin the Rays' rotation until after the All-Star break.

It was reported Monday that Odorizzi was two weeks away from a return, but that's apparently not the case. Officially, the Rays aren't setting a timetable for the righty's return, but the feeling is that it will take until after the break to build him back up. "No issue with the side or the oblique," manager Kevin Cash said. "But we have to build him back up. We have to be smart."
Jun 23 - 10:30 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) is two weeks away from being activated from the disabled list.

Odorizzi threw a 40-pitch bullpen session on Monday with no issues. He'll throw another 'pen session Wednesday before tossing live batting practice Saturday. If all of that goes well, he'll be cleared to begin a rehab assignment next. Odorizzi has been out since early June with a left oblique strain.
Jun 22 - 4:29 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) is expected to need two rehab starts before being activated from the disabled list.

Odorizzi resumed throwing off a mound Saturday and will throw a full bullpen session on Monday. It's not clear whether he'll be cleared for a rehab assignment at that point, but he's getting close to game action. Odorizzi should make it back to the Rays' rotation in early July.
Jun 21 - 10:41 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will throw off a mound on Saturday.

He'll then throw a full bullpen session on Monday, as Odorizzi has been playing catch and is now ready to try things from the bump. It's not clear at this point when he might be ready for a rehab assignment, but it shouldn't be long assuming he can avoid a setback.
Jun 19 - 11:08 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) could be cleared to throw off a mound early next week.

Odorizzi stretched out his catch to 90 feet on Tuesday and hasn't felt anything with his strained left oblique. It's unclear how many rehab starts he'll need, but the right-hander should make it back before the All-Star break.
Jun 17 - 9:59 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) played catch from 60 feet on Sunday.

He made 25 throws in what was his first bit of catch since landing on the disabled list. Odorizzi could throw again on Monday and should be cleared for mound work before long if he feels well. The right-hander is probably looking at a late June/early July return.
Jun 14 - 11:25 AM

Rays placed RHP Jake Odorizzi on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 6, with a left oblique injury.

Odorizzi left Friday's start with left oblique tightness and will now get some extended rest. Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey said Tuesday morning that he's likely a few weeks away from returning. It's too bad, as the 25-year-old owns a 2.47 ERA with a 63/15 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings over 12 starts this season.
Jun 9 - 3:29 PM

Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Tuesday that Jake Odorizzi (oblique) is likely a few weeks away from pitching in a major league game.

Odorizzi left Friday's start against the Mariners with left oblique tightness and appears headed to the disabled list. Hickey said Tuesday it's not considered serious, but this type of injury typically requires some downtime.
Jun 9 - 10:02 AM

Rays manager Kevin Cash said he expects Jake Odorizzi (oblique) to miss time.

Odorizzi will see the doctor Monday when the Rays return home from their 10-game road trip. The right-hander left his start Friday in Seattle after experiencing discomfort in his left oblique and could be headed to the disabled list. A strain typically takes a few weeks to heal.
Jun 6 - 8:48 PM

Jake Odorizzi left Friday's start against Mariners with left oblique tightness.

Before departing, the right-hander had hurled 4 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing just four hits and a walk. Odorizzi punched out four on the night. The severity of the injury is unclear at the moment, but most oblique strains do lead to a trip to the disabled list.
Jun 6 - 12:06 AM

Jake Odorizzi was removed from Friday's start against the Mariners with an apparent injury.

It's unclear at the moment just what the injury is or the severity, but he was clearly wincing in pain and appeared to grab at something on his left side before walking off the field with the trainer. The Rays should have an update on his status soon.
Jun 5 - 11:54 PM

Jake Odorizzi earned the win, giving up four runs in six innings as the Rays held off the Orioles on Sunday.

Odorizzi entered the start having allowed two home runs total across 66 1/3 innings. He gave up three on the afternoon: two of the solo variety to Delmon Young and one of the two-run variety to Manny Machado. He allowed seven hits overall while walking two and striking out six. It was a rare hiccup in what has otherwise been a sterling season for Odorizzi, now carrying a 2.61 ERA with a 1.01 WHIP, and a 59/14 K/BB ratio over 72 1/3 innings. He'll face the Mariners in Seattle in his next start.
May 31 - 5:12 PM

Jake Odorizzi lost his third straight decision despite yielding only two runs (one earned) in seven innings against the Mariners on Monday.

Odorizzi has notched quality starts in all five May outings, but has lost his last three because the Rays have provided him a grand total of four runs of support. On Monday, he scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. Both runs scored in the first inning, thanks in part to a Tim Beckham fielding error. Odorizzi, sporting a fantastic 2.31 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 53/12 K/BB ratio over 66 1/3 innings, will try to get back in the win column in Baltimore against the Orioles next.
