Jake Odorizzi turned in a solid start in a Sunday no-decision against the A's, allowing two runs on three hits over six-plus innings.

Odorizzi struck out four and walked one on the afternoon. Runs scored against him via RBI singles off the bats of Mark Canha and Brett Lawrie in the fourth and seventh innings, respectively. Only an oblique strain that took a chunk out of his season in June has marred what's been a very nice campaign for the 25-year-old right-hander. He'll take his 3.02 ERA and 1.11 WHIP into a home start against the Royals next time he toes the rubber.

Jake Odorizzi struck out nine while allowing one run over six innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Tuesday.

His nine strikeouts matched a season high. Odorizzi scattered six hits and a walk over his six innings but didn't factor in the decision, his fourth consecutive no-decision. The right-hander remains 6-6 but improved his ERA to 3.02 through 20 starts. Odorizzi will look for his seventh win Sunday at the Athletics.

Jake Odorizzi was tagged for six runs and nine hits in six-plus innings by the Braves on Wednesday.

It was four runs through six innings, but manager Eric Wedge sent him back out for the seventh and he allowed a walk and a double before being pulled. Both runners came around to score off Alex Colome, who went on to vulture the win after the Rays scored six in the bottom of the seventh. It was just the second time this season that Odorizzi has allowed five runs, and his ERA jumped from 2.77 to 3.09.

Jake Odorizzi posted his best start since returning from the disabled list, firing 6 2/3 innings of one-run baseball against the Mets in a Friday no-decision.

Odorizzi scattered four hits while striking out six and walking one. Outside of a solo home run by Juan Uribe in the seventh, he did not allow a run. An oblique strain sidelined him for over a month earlier this season and he's struggled to return to his pre-injury form since being activated on July 10, but Friday's start was a definite step in the right direction. Overall, he holds a 2.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 93/28 K/BB ratio across 110 1/3 innings. Next up, a home start against the Braves as he tries to build off of this successful outing.

Jake Odorizzi supplied a quality start in a Sunday no-decision against the Red Sox, allowing three runs on seven hits over six innings.

Odorizzi struck out five and walked one on the day. The Red Sox took him to task for two runs in the first inning and another in the third to account for the scoring on his line. He's flashed signs of his pre-injury self since returning from the disabled list on July 10 after missing over a month with a strained oblique, but there's still room for improvement and owners probably have sunnier days to look forward to with the 25-year-old right-hander. The owner of a 2.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 87/27 K/BB ratio across 103 2/3 innings, Odorizzi will face the Mets at home in his next scheduled start.
Aug 2 - 4:52 PM

Jake Odorizzi will have his next start bumped up a day, as he'll pitch on Sunday against the Red Sox.

Nathan Karns, who had been scheduled to pitch Sunday, will move back a day and work against the White Sox on Monday. The Rays simply wanted to change the order of their rotation, there isn't believed to be anything physically wrong with Karns.

In 16 starts, the right-hander has a 2.76 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and an 82/26 K/BB ratio in 97 2/3 innings. Odorizzi is scheduled to take on the White Sox in a road start next.

Jake Odorizzi pitched decently against the Phillies on Wednesday afternoon, allowing two runs on five hits over five innings.

Odorizzi struck out five and walked two in the contest. Both runs on his line scored in a soft first inning via a double play and an infield single. This was his third start since returning from an early June oblique injury. He was flat-out dominant prior to the injury, but sledding's been tougher on the other side of the DL and he's clearly still working off the rust. Owners should remain patient. Even with the sometime struggles of late, he still holds a 2.85 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. He'll continue to try to work his way back into the light in a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.

He had allowed just one run through the first four innings, but the Jays broke the game open and chased the right-hander with a five-run uprising in the fifth, capped by a three-run homer by Justin Smoak. Despite this setback, he'll carry an impressive 2.80 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Phillies in Philadelphia.
Jul 17 - 9:42 PM

Jake Odorizzi threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings against the Astros in his return from the disabled list on Saturday.

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will make one more rehab start before being activated from the disabled list.
