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.

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.

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.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox sent senior vice president of baseball operations Frank Wren to scout Jake Odorizzi recently.

The Red Sox will get another look at the right-hander when he starts against them on Sunday. Odorizzi holds a 4.33 ERA on the season, but he's still missing bats and would make for a fine trade target, especially since he's under team control through 2019. The Rangers and Marlins also reportedly have interest.

Jake Odorizzi allowed seven runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Angels.

Possibly auditioning for trade suitors -- the Rangers are among those interested, per ESPN's Jim Bowden -- Odorizzi didn't show much to get excited about. He walked two and struck out four to go with the nine hits allowed. He's now oscillated between good and bad starts for roughly a month, adding up to a 3-4 record, 4.33 ERA and 1.26 WHIP through 18 starts overall. Odorizzi will get one more first-half start before the All-Star break, taking on the Red Sox on Sunday.
Jul 5 - 10:34 PM

According to ESPN's Jim Bowden, the Rangers have discussed acquiring Rays starter Jake Odorizzi.

Bowden says Tampa Bay wants a young bat in return and lists Jurickson Profar, Joey Gallo, and Lewis Brinson as possibilities. The teams are not close to a deal, per Bowden, but the "dialogue continues" as we near the All-Star break. Odorizzi has struggled a bit lately, but the hard-throwing 26-year-old right-hander still holds a cool 3.91 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 90/31 K/BB ratio in 94 1/3 total innings this season. He is under contractual control through 2019.
Jul 4 - 12:04 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed five runs on eight hits over five innings in Saturday's doubleheader nightcap against the Orioles.

Odorizzi was staked to a four-run lead but wasn't able to hold it, eventually settling for a no-decision. The right-hander was done in by homers, as the Orioles hit three of them on the evening. He walked one and struck out one before exiting. He now owns a 3.93 ERA and 1.22 WHIP through 16 starts, numbers he'll look to improve upon Thursday against the Tigers.
Jun 25 - 11:45 PM

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reports that the Marlins have had preliminary contact with the Rays regarding Jake Odorizzi.

Morosi hears that the Marlins are looking at starters and relievers, so this is likely just some early due diligence as the club looks ahead to the August 1 non-waiver trade deadline. Odorizzi won't be arbitration-eligible for the first time until this offseason, so any trade would require a significant haul of prospects. The 26-year-old owns a 3.63 ERA through 15 starts this season.
Jun 20 - 7:28 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched well in taking a no-decision against the Giants on Sunday, allowing one run on four hits over six innings.

Odorizzi struck out eight and did not walk a batter on the afternoon. The only run to score on his watch came via a fourth-inning solo homer off the bat of Brandon Belt. For the season, the 26-year-old right-hander holds a 3.63 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 82/27 K/BB ratio across 84 1/3 innings. A road tilt with the Orioles shows next on his schedule.
Jun 19 - 4:45 PM

Jake Odorizzi whiffed nine but allowed five runs over 5 2/3 frames, taking a no-decision in an 8-7 victory over the Mariners.

He yielded eight hits and tied his season high with four walks, getting ejected for arguing about the final free pass. Odorizzi has had control problems of late with 18 walks over his last 33 2/3 frames, a high total for a guy who usually has good control. He'll try for better results on Sunday against the Giants.
Jun 14 - 11:35 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed three runs on five hits over five innings in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Odorizzi fanned eight and walked three on the afternoon. The Diamondbacks would score a pair of runs in the second inning and an additional run in the third to account for the scoring on Odorizzi's line. He will carry a 3.47 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 59/20 K/BB ratio (66 2/3 innings) into a home date with the Mariners next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 8 - 7:35 PM

Jake Odorizzi surrendered a two-run home run to Starlin Castro in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Yankees, the only hit he allowed over seven innings.

Tough loss for Odorizzi, who was almost perfect on the afternoon. Almost. Entering the seventh inning, the 26-year-old right-hander had not allowed a baserunner. He walked Brett Gardner with one out in the frame, though, and Castro promptly followed that up with a two-run home run. Through his first 11 starts (61 2/3 innings), Odorizzi owns a 3.36 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 51/17 K/BB ratio. A home start against the Twins shows next on his schedule.
May 29 - 3:58 PM

Jake Odorizzi tossed five scoreless innings in Tuesday’s 4-3 win over the Marlins.

Odorizzi gave up just two hits, but walked three and struck out seven, so he needed 107 pitches to get through five innings. After going winless through his first eight turns, Odorizzi has now won back-to-back starts. He’ll bring a 3.46 ERA into a matchup against the Yankees on Sunday.
May 24 - 3:40 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed two runs on a pair of solo homers in five innings of work against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

It was a hot-and-cold start for Odorizzi. He struggled with his command a bit, allowing four walks and only striking out two, but he also didn’t give up a base hit aside from the two homers. The Rays’ offense picked him up and helped him pick up win no. 1 of the season. The right-hander now owns a 3.81 ERA over 49 2/3 innings. He’ll get the Marlins on the road in Tuesday’s interleague matchup.
May 18 - 10:44 PM

Jake Odorizzi was tagged for a season-high five runs over four innings Friday in a loss to the Athletics.

Odorizzi put himself in an early hole by giving up four runs in the first inning. He had allowed just four runs combined over his previous three starts, but this just wasn’t his night. He gave up seven hits in all, including three home runs. The 26-year-old is winless through eight starts, but he still owns a quality 3.83 ERA and 36/9 K/BB ratio over 44 2/3 innings. He’ll try again to get into the win column next week against the Blue Jays on the road.
