Jake Odorizzi had his shortest outing of the season Sunday, lasting just three innings while allowing two runs in a no-decision versus the Red Sox.

He was lucky to permit just the two runs, as Odorizzi yielded four hits and three walked while throwing a whopping 84 pitches over his three frames. It's a hard one for his fantasy owners to swollen as they come down the stretch, but the matchup was certainly a difficult one. Odorizzi has been excellent overall in the second half (2.81 ERA) and should be better next weekend in Texas.
Sep 25 - 5:16 PM

Jake Odorizzi tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday in a no-decision against the Orioles.

Odorizzi did his part, yielding just five hits and walking none while striking out three. The one run he gave up came on a Manny Machado solo shot in the bottom of the sixth inning. Odorizzi left with the game tied 1-1 and then Mark Trumbo put the O's ahead for good with a dinger in the bottom of the eighth. It's been a very good second half for the 26-year-old right-hander, who gets the Red Sox at home next.
Sep 18 - 4:46 PM

Jake Odorizzi limited the Blue Jays to two run over seven frames but took a no-decision on Monday.

Odorizzi kept a good lineup at bay until Jose Bautista ripped a two-run shot off of him in the seventh inning. It was a terrific performance, though, as he gave up just four hits and one walk with his four strikeouts, throwing only 92 pitches. Odorizzi has been dominant in the second half aside from one hiccup last week versus the Orioles. He'll get those same Orioles again this weekend, this time in Baltimore.
Sep 12 - 9:47 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed seven runs over four innings in a loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.

Home runs continue to be an issue for the 26-year-old, with the Orioles hitting two -- including a Manny Machado grand slam -- in the game. Odorizzi has now given up 25 home runs in 29 starts overall, posting a 3.86 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. The loss dropped him to 9-6, his first loss since the All-Star break. Odorizzi will look to get back in the win column Sunday against the Yankees.
Sep 6 - 10:42 PM

Jake Odorizzi whiffed seven while yielding three runs over six innings in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Red Sox.

He wasn't very economical, needing 113 pitches to cover his six frames. It was a nice showing in a tough environment, though, and the Rays took Odorizzi off the hook with a couple late homers. The right-hander boasts a nifty 1.89 second-half ERA. He'll take on the Orioles the next time out.
Aug 30 - 10:59 PM

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.
