Jake Odorizzi pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Thursday against the Red Sox.

Odorizzi allowed three hits, walked three and struck out three, benefiting from some nice defense along the way. Having yet to allow a homer in four starts, Odorizzi is currently sporting a 1.65 ERA. He's not this good, but there's no reason he can't continue to be an asset.
Apr 23 - 10:39 PM

Jake Odorizzi struck out nine batters and allowed three runs over six innings in Saturday's 9-0 loss to the Yankees.

Despite another good outing he was unable to come away with the win, as Masahiro Tanaka completely dominated Odorizzi's offensive teammates. A Brian McCann RBI triple(!) in the sixth inning broke a scoreless tie. Despite the ultimate team loss, Odorizzi is off to one of the best starts in the majors. His ERA sits at a sterling 1.75 and he's allowed just nine hits over 20 1/3 innings. The 25-year-old has struck out 19 over that same stretch. He'll try to continue his high-strikeout ways against the Blue Jays.
Apr 18 - 11:10 PM

Jake Odorizzi held the Blue Jays to one run over eight innings en route to a win on Monday.

The only run the Jays mustered against Odorizzi came in the fourth, when Kevin Pillar hit a two-out double and scored on a Devon Travis single. They were the only two hits Odorizzi allowed on the evening. He also walked three and struck out three. The 2-0 Odorizzi will face the Yankees at home the next time he takes the mound.
Apr 13 - 10:03 PM

Jake Odorizzi held the Orioles scoreless over 6 2/3 innings en route to a win on Wednesday.

Odorizzi got the first two outs of the seventh inning but was taken out after 93 pitches in favor of reliever Jeff Beliveau. On the evening, Odorizzi yielded only two hits without a walk while striking out seven. It's a 2015 debut that's sure to leave the Rays feeling pleased as punch. Odorizzi is looking to improve on last season's 4.13 ERA. Given that he struck out 174 in 168 innings, he's shown that he has the potential to be much better. Odorizzi will face the Blue Jays on the road in his next outing.
Apr 8 - 10:15 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched four innings and allowed three runs Friday against the Tigers.

Miguel Cabrera got the better off Odorizzi, driving in all three runs with a homer and a double, but Odorizzi did pretty well against the rest of the lineup. He'll start the Rays' third game of the season versus the Orioles, and he's not a bad option in mixed leagues.
Apr 3 - 4:42 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball as the Rays topped a Twins split-squad 4-2 on Saturday.

Odorizzi struck out four and walked none. He rates as at least a fringe mixed-league starter this year after striking out 174 in 168 innings as a rookie last season. We'd like him even better if we thought the Rays would feature an offense this year.
Mar 21 - 4:58 PM

Jake Odorizzi put on 17 pounds this winter in the hope that it will help his durability.

"My upper body's not that much different, it's almost all from the waist down," Odorizzi told reporters upon arriving at Rays camp. "Just more strength for pitching, and more stability. ... More body control having a sturdier base." The 24-year-old right-hander posted a pedestrian 4.13 ERA in 31 starts last season, but he did strike out 174 batters in 168 innings. A breakout could be on the horizon.
Feb 23 - 9:00 AM

Jake Odorizzi failed to record an out in the fourth inning, giving up five runs in three-plus innings as the Rays were handily defeated by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Odorizzi had nothing going for him. The Red Sox compiled seven hits and three walks while striking out three. The right-hander allowed the first three batters he faced in the fourth inning to reach base on a double, a walk, and a single before departing. All three would come around to score. Odorizzi closes the book on his 2014 season at 11-13 with a 4.18 ERA, a 1.24 WHIP, and a 174/59 K/BB ratio.

Jake Odorizzi pitched well on Tuesday, yielding just one run over six innings as the Rays dealt the Yankees a loss.

Odorizzi has been hit or miss for most of the second half, allowing five-plus runs in three of his previous eight starts entering the evening. He was very much a "hit" on Tuesday, as he held the Yankees to five hits and a walk while punching out three batters. The 24-year-old sports an 11-2 record, a 3.98 ERA, a 1.25 WHIP, and a 171/56 K/BB ratio. Odorizzi will take the mound at Fenway Park against the Red Sox on Tuesday next.
Tue, Sep 16, 2014 11:06:00 PM

Jake Odorizzi fell to 10-12 after relenting six runs over 4 1/3 innings as the Rays were bested by the Yankees on Wednesday.

Odorizzi had shut out the opposition in each of his last two starts, but the Yankees were able to push across runs in four out of the five innings in which the right-hander appeared, erasing the Rays' four-run first-inning lead. Odorizzi gave up five hits -- including home runs to Brian McCann and Chris Young -- while walking three and striking out two. He'll take his 4.08 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 168/55 K/BB ratio into another start against the Yankees on Monday, but he'll have home-field advantage this time.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 11:08:00 PM

Jake Odorizzi didn't allow a run in his second consecutive start, but went home with a no-decision as the Rays fell to the Blue Jays in 10 innings on Thursday.

Odorizzi tossed seven shutout frames against the Red Sox on Saturday and followed it up with 7 1/3 scoreless innings against the Blue Jays on Thursday. He yielded only three hits with no walks and three strikeouts. Five of his last six starts have been high-quality. As such, he has lowered his ERA to 3.84 with a 1.28 WHIP and a 166/52 K/BB ratio. Odorizzi will look to keep the scoreless innings streak -- now at 15 1/3 -- into Wednesday's start at Yankee Stadium.

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.

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.
Mon, Aug 25, 2014 10:37:00 PM

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.
