Jake Odorizzi delivered seven shutout innings Saturday in the Rays' 7-0 win over the Red Sox.
It was a complete turnaround for the young right-hander, who got pummeled for eight runs in four innings Monday by the Orioles. Odorizzi allowed just one Boston hit and struck out seven Boston batters. He'll bring a 10-11 record, 4.03 ERA, and 1.28 WHIP into his next outing at home against the Blue Jays. Consistency remains an issue, but Odorizzi can look truly dominant at times. He has whiffed 163 batters in 147 1/3 innings this year. Aug 30 - 10:21 PM

Jake Odorizzi was pummeled for eight runs in four-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Orioles.

This came out of nowhere. Odorizzi struggled back in April, but he had allowed three runs or fewer in 17 of 20 starts since, never giving up more than five. He allowed four homers tonight, the last two coming consecutively to end his outing. After he was pulled, Kirby Yates made it three in a row, giving up a bomb to Chris Davis. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Odorizzi wear down some in September, but we'll chalk this one up as a fluke for now. He gets the Red Sox next.

Jake Odorizzi was solid but faltered in the seventh inning in a loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

Odorizzi limited the Tigers to one run through his first six innings, but allowed a two-out double and an RBI single in the seventh before departing. He was charged with three runs on five hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven in the process. The talented right-hander has been pitching well as of late, and now has a 3.83 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and a 153/48 K/BB ratio. The Orioles await him in his next start, which will come on Monday in Baltimore.
Aug 20 - 9:59 PM

Jake Odorizzi dominated the Rangers, allowing two runs over seven innings as the Rays won 6-3 on Thursday.

Odorizzi has had back-to-back dominating starts now. Against the Rangers, he yielded only four hits -- though one was a home run to Geovany Soto -- and a walk while striking out seven. The 24-year-old now has a 3.82 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 146/46 K/BB ratio, which he'll bring into Wednesday's home start against the Tigers.
Aug 14 - 11:27 PM

Jake Odorizzi fired six innings of shutout ball Saturday in the Rays' 4-0 blanking of the Cubs.

Odorizzi gave up just three hits, walked none, and struck out nine in the dominant performance. The 24-year-old right-hander has been pretty inconsistent this season, but he currently boasts a 3.89 ERA and 139/45 K/BB ratio in 122 2/3 innings. Those are very useful fantasy numbers, and he'll try to keep it rolling next week in Arlington, Texas.
Aug 9 - 7:20 PM

Jake Odorizzi couldn't recover from a five-run first inning against the Angels on Sunday, lasting just three innings in the loss.

Coming off three straight victories, Odorizzi faced nine Angels hitters in the first inning. Things got better from there -- he didn't allow a run over his next two -- but he was pulled after three in his shortest start of the season. The loss dropped the 24-year-old to 7-9 with a 4.09 ERA, and he'll look to get back in the win column Saturday at the Cubs.
Aug 3 - 7:09 PM

Jake Odorizzi limited the Brewers to one run and three hits in seven innings to earn a win Monday.

It's hard to believe this is the same guy who kept getting knocked around his second and third times through the order back in April. He's now gone nine straight starts without allowing more than three runs, dropping his ERA from 5.31 to 3.80.
Jul 28 - 10:07 PM

Jake Odorizzi limited the Cardinals to two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Tuesday in the Rays' 7-2 win.

Odorizzi yielded a leadoff solo home run to Matt Carpenter in the bottom of the first inning but settled in after that, out-dueling Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright. The 24-year-old right-hander boasts a 2.39 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 53 strikeouts in 49 innings (eight starts) since June 10. He's a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues. A home start against the Brewers is next.
Jul 22 - 11:49 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched decently in a no-decision against the Orioles on Friday, allowing just one run on six hits over his five innings of work.

The young right-hander racked up six strikeouts, but also issued four walks and needed 106 pitches to get through his five frames. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Nick Hundley in the second inning. Though he sports a 3-7 record, he has impressed during his time with the Rays, compiling a 4.14 ERA (3.54 xFIP), 1.33 WHIP and 97/34 K/BB ratio over 82 2/3 innings. He'll take on the Yankees in New York his next time out.
Jun 27 - 10:34 PM

Jake Odorizzi was dominant over 7 1/3 innings Saturday in the Rays' 8-0 defeat of the Astros.

Odorizzi surrendered just one hit and two walks while racking up 10 strikeouts. The 24-year-old right-hander has been inconsistent this season, but his upside is considerable and he remains a good matchup-to-matchup play in standard mixed fantasy leagues. Odorizzi will try to stay in a groove next week in Baltimore.
Jun 21 - 7:39 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed two runs and three hits over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Monday.

Another solid outing for Odorizzi that didn't result in a win. He left with a one-run lead tonight, but he remained 0-4 in his last six starts and 2-7 overall. He deserved that poor record early on, but he has a 3.38 ERA in his last eight starts.
Jun 17 - 12:19 AM

Jake Odorizzi allowed just three hits over 7 1/3 innings on Tuesday, but Matt Holliday's solo home run was the difference in the loss to the Cardinals.

Odorizzi and the Rays deserved a better fate, but it's just the way the club has been going all season. The right-hander walked one and struck out five on the night, with Holliday's blast with two outs in the sixth inning counting as the Cardinals' only extra-base hit in the game. Alas, Odorizzi falls to 2-7 while lowering his ERA to 4.85. The 24-year-old will look for a better fate Monday against the Orioles.
Jun 10 - 10:08 PM

Jake Odorizzi struck out eight but was tagged for four runs over just five innings in Thursday's loss to the Marlins.

It was more of the same for Odorizzi, who has piled up strikeouts but consistently failed to go deep into games. The young right-hander now has whiffed 71 over 57 2/3 frames this year but holds a 5.31 ERA and has yet to record an out past the sixth inning. He'll get the Cardinals the next time out.
Jun 5 - 8:20 PM

Jake Odorizzi was knocked around for five earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings Saturday against the Red Sox.

Odorizzi looked sharp through his first two frames, but Jonathan Herrera opened the third inning with a single and then Brock Holt slugged a two-run homer. Mike Carp added a run with a sacrifice fly a few batters later and the Red Sox plated two more runs in the fourth. Odorizzi has shown great promise at times this season, but he owns a rough 2-5 record, 5.13 ERA, and 1.54 WHIP in 52 2/3 total frames.
May 31 - 10:38 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed one run on four hits in six innings of a no-decision against the Red Sox on Sunday.

Odorizzi staked the Red Sox to an early one-run lead but kept them off the board for the rest of his time. He walked just one while striking out five in the game. Unfortunately for him the Rays bullpen was unable to deliver his third win, but it was still his third strong start in his last four outings. Odorizzi will carry a 4.56 ERA and 1.50 WHIP into a rematch with the Red Sox on Saturday.
