Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is hearing the Rays could trade Jake Odorizzi before the start of spring training.

Even after shipping Drew Smyly to the Mariners, the Rays still have a surplus of arms and could move one of them in the near future. Cafardo believes it's unlikely the Rays would move either Chris Archer or Alex Cobb, leaving Odorizzi as the most likely trade candidate. Odorizzi enjoyed one of his best seasons last year, logging a 3.69 ERA over a career-high 187 2/3 innings.

Jake Odorizzi had his shortest outing of the season Sunday, lasting just three innings while allowing two runs in a no-decision versus the Red Sox.

He was lucky to permit just the two runs, as Odorizzi yielded four hits and three walked while throwing a whopping 84 pitches over his three frames. It's a hard one for his fantasy owners to swollen as they come down the stretch, but the matchup was certainly a difficult one. Odorizzi has been excellent overall in the second half (2.81 ERA) and should be better next weekend in Texas.

Jake Odorizzi tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday in a no-decision against the Orioles.

Odorizzi did his part, yielding just five hits and walking none while striking out three. The one run he gave up came on a Manny Machado solo shot in the bottom of the sixth inning. Odorizzi left with the game tied 1-1 and then Mark Trumbo put the O's ahead for good with a dinger in the bottom of the eighth. It's been a very good second half for the 26-year-old right-hander, who gets the Red Sox at home next.

Jake Odorizzi limited the Blue Jays to two run over seven frames but took a no-decision on Monday.

Odorizzi kept a good lineup at bay until Jose Bautista ripped a two-run shot off of him in the seventh inning. It was a terrific performance, though, as he gave up just four hits and one walk with his four strikeouts, throwing only 92 pitches. Odorizzi has been dominant in the second half aside from one hiccup last week versus the Orioles. He'll get those same Orioles again this weekend, this time in Baltimore.

Jake Odorizzi whiffed seven while yielding three runs over six innings in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Red Sox.

He wasn't very economical, needing 113 pitches to cover his six frames. It was a nice showing in a tough environment, though, and the Rays took Odorizzi off the hook with a couple late homers. The right-hander boasts a nifty 1.89 second-half ERA. He'll take on the Orioles the next time out.

Jake Odorizzi limited the Red Sox to one run in seven innings for a victory on Thursday.

A first-half disappointment, Odorizzi has allowed six earned runs in seven starts, lowering his ERA from 4.39 to 3.53. He's showing why the Rays had such a hefty price on his head in trade talks last month.

Jake Odorizzi gave up a single run over six innings in Saturday's win over the Rangers.

As has been his bugaboo all year, the Rangers' run came on a solo homer, but he was otherwise stingy, allowing six hits and a walk while striking out four on the evening. The win was his fifth in a row to run his record to 8-5, and Odorizzi now owns a 3.63 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 26 starts. He'll try to extend his winning streak to six straight when he faces the Red Sox on Thursday.

Jake Odorizzi improved to 7-5 in Sunday's win over the Yankees, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

Quality start for Odorizzi, who struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. All three runs on his line scored via the home run, with young whippersnapper Aaron Judge swatting an opposite field solo shot off Odorizzi in the third and fellow young gentleman Gary Sanchez cracking a two-run dinger in the fourth. Otherwise, it was a smooth six frames for the 26-year-old right-hander. He will carry a 3.72 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into a home start against the Rangers next time he toes the rubber.
