Jake Odorizzi lost his third straight decision despite yielding only two runs (one earned) in seven innings against the Mariners on Monday.
Odorizzi has notched quality starts in all five May outings, but has lost his last three because the Rays have provided him a grand total of four runs of support. On Monday, he scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven. Both runs scored in the first inning, thanks in part to a Tim Beckham fielding error. Odorizzi, sporting a fantastic 2.31 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 53/12 K/BB ratio over 66 1/3 innings, will try to get back in the win column in Baltimore against the Orioles next. May 25 - 10:11 PM

Jake Odorizzi allowed two runs in six innings, taking a tough-luck loss against the Braves on Wednesday.

The Braves scored their first run with a two-out single in the third inning, then added another in the sixth in a ground out. Odorizzi was solid, but opposing starter Williams Perez and the Braves' bullpen were slightly better. The right-hander allowed four hits and a pair of walks while striking out two. Now 3-4, Odorizzi will bring a 2.43 ERA, a 0.96 WHIP, and a 46/10 K/BB ratio over 59 1/3 innings into a home start versus the Mariners.
May 20 - 10:56 PM

Jake Odorizzi posted a quality start against the Twins on Friday, allowing three runs on eight hits over six innings.

With the game tied at 1-1, Odorizzi started to lose a bit of steam to start the seventh inning, when Danny Santana hit an RBI-triple off the pitcher. Santana would score after Odorizzi left the game. The Rays were unable to overcome the 3-2 deficit and Odorizzi took his third loss of the season. Overall, he struck out five without walking a batter. He's been very consistent in 2015, having not allowed more than four runs in any one start. He holds a 2.36 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and a 44/8 K/BB ratio over 53 1/3 innings.
May 15 - 11:09 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched well, yielding one run in 6 2/3 innings, but had scant run support, leading to a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

Odorizzi made one mistake, resulting in a solo home run to Adrian Beltre in the fourth inning, and it ended up taking him out of the running for the win as the Rays could only muster one run on the afternoon. The right-hander scattered seven hits, walked none, and struck out seven. Odorizzi has a terrific 2.09 ERA with a 0.91 WHIP and a 39/8 K/BB ratio in 47 1/3 innings. He'll face the Twins in Minnesota the next time he toes the rubber.
May 10 - 4:38 PM

Jake Odorizzi (flu) has been cleared to start on Sunday against the Rangers.

He was scratched from Saturday's start due to the flu but is feeling much better. The owner of a 2.21 ERA through six starts, Odorizzi obviously needs to be slotted into fantasy lineups.
May 10 - 9:29 AM

Jake Odorizzi (flu) indicated he was feeling much better on Saturday and could start for the Rays on Sunday.

Odorizzi was scratched from Saturday's scheduled start due to illness, but with Drew Smyly heading to the disabled list they have an opening in their rotation on Sunday as well. There's a good chance he's able to give it a go and simply have his start pushed back one day.
May 9 - 2:43 PM

Jake Odorizzi has been scratched from his scheduled start on Saturday due to illness.

Matt Andriese will get the call in place of Odorizzi. With Drew Smyly hitting the disabled list on Friday, the Rays have yet to determine who will start on Sunday.
May 8 - 10:53 PM

Jake Odorizzi picked up his third win on Monday, holding the Red Sox to one run over seven innings.

Odorizzi scattered seven hits without issuing a walk and striking out six. The Red Sox plated their only run in the second inning following a Xander Bogaerts triple. The 25-year-old Odorizzi has been close to lights-out through his first six starts, owning a 2.21 ERA with a 0.89 WHIP and a 32/8 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. He'll test his stuff next in a home start versus the Rangers.
May 4 - 10:51 PM

Jake Odorizzi got the loss on Tuesday versus the Yankees, serving up four runs over 6 1/3 innings.

The right-hander allowed two runs in two separate innings. In the first, the Yankees scored twice on a Brett Gardner ground out and a Brian McCann double. In the fifth, McCann doubled again, but brought in two runs. Overall, Odorizzi gave up nine hits without issuing a walk and striking out four. Tuesday's outing was his toughest of the year, which speaks to how well he has pitched. Odorizzi owns a 2.41 ERA with a 0.73 WHIP, and a 26/8 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings. He'll have to face the Red Sox at Fenway Park his next time out.
Apr 28 - 10:18 PM

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.
