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.

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.
May 14 - 1:03 AM

Jake Odorizzi took a no-decision in Saturday's win over the Angels, yielding two runs on five hits over six innings.

Odorizzi struck out four and walked one on the evening. Both runs on his line came home via a shallow RBI single off the bat of Andrelton Simmons in the fifth inning. The 26-year-old right-hander has been fantastic outside of a pair of stinker starts in which he coughed up nine combined runs. In his other five starts, he has allowed a total of six runs. Odorizzi will play host to the A's next time he toes the rubber.
May 8 - 12:30 AM

Jake Odorizzi was sharp in earning a no-decision in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jays, hurling seven innings of one-run ball.

Don't be fooled by the 5-1 final score. This was a juicy pitching duel by starters Odorizzi and Marcus Stroman until the Rays bullpen coughed up four late runs. For his part, Odorizzi struck out six, walked two and allowed just a pair of hits. The lonely run to score on his watch came when Josh Donaldson clocked a solo homer off the 26-year-old right-hander in the fourth inning. Odorizzi is off to a smooth start with a 3.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 30/7 K/BB ratio across 34 2/3 innings. A road date with the Angels awaits him in his next outing.
May 1 - 3:52 PM

Jake Odorizzi limited the Orioles to one run over five innings in a no-decision on Tuesday.

Odorizzi had to work to get through five, scattering seven hits and a walk while striking out just one on the night. And he paid for his inefficiency, exiting before the Rays took the lead an inning later. It's been hit or miss for Odorizzi over his five starts, oscillating between good and bad ones. It all adds up to a 3.58 ERA and 1.34 WHIP. His next start will come Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Apr 26 - 10:01 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched brilliantly in a no-decision against the White Sox on Friday racking up six strikeouts over seven scoreless innings.

The right-hander scattered just four hits and a walk on the evening, needing only 94 pitches to complete seven frames. Unfortunately, Chris Sale was equally as good on the other side of the diamond and the Rays weren't able to generate any offense against him. While he remains winless on the young season, he'll carry an impressive 2.41 ERA and 1.07 WHIP into Thursday's matchup against the Red Sox in Boston.
Apr 15 - 9:35 PM

Jake Odorizzi couldn't avoid the big inning during Sunday's loss to the Orioles, surrendering all four runs on his line in the second inning.

In the second, Odorizzi allowed an RBI double to Jonathan Schoop, a sacrifice fly to Joey Rickard and a two-run homer to Manny Machado. Outside of that four-spot, though, he did not yield a run over his six innings of work. Which is sort of like saying, "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?" The 26-year-old right-hander struck out four and did not walk a batter. He will try to eliminate the big inning when he takes on the White Sox in a home start next time out.
Apr 10 - 5:03 PM

Jake Odorizzi whiffed 10 Blue Jays batters while allowing two runs -- one earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's 3-2 win.

Odorizzi was unable to get through six frames with his pitch count reaching 111, but of course that was due in large part to him racking up a bunch of strikeouts. The right-hander didn't have a single 10-strikeout game last season, although he had nine punchouts on a couple occasions. Odorizzi will get the Indians in his next trip to the hill.
