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.

Jake Odorizzi was knocked around by the Blue Jays on Friday, surrendering six runs on six hits over 4 1/3 frames.

Odorizzi struggled badly with his command, issuing five walks on the night while striking out only one. 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.

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

Odorizzi allowed just two hits while striking out five and walking three over his 5 2/3 innings of work. He had been sidelined with a strained oblique since June 5. Prior to the injury, he held a 2.47 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 63/15 K/BB ratio in 76 2/3 innings. Owners should feel comfortable deploying him as normal moving forward.
Jul 11 - 6:54 PM

Rays activated RHP Jake Odorizzi from the 15-day disabled list.

The right-hander will return to the Rays rotation on Saturday against the Astros. He hasn't pitched since June 6 due to his strained oblique, but looked strong on his minor league rehab assignment. Fantasy owners can confidently activate him for use against the free-swinging Astros.
Jul 10 - 10:04 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will be activated and start Saturday against the Astros.

That was the speculation, and Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed it Wednesday. Odorizzi hasn't pitched since June 5 due to the strained oblique. With Odorizzi drawing the Saturday assignment, Matt Moore's start was pushed back to Sunday.
Jul 8 - 6:14 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab start with High-A Charlotte.

Odorizzi, who has been out for a month with an oblique strain, allowed just two hits and one walk while striking out six. I haven't had any pain for quite a while now so I was just looking to get through this healthy and make sure I got all my pitches in," said Odorizzi. He's on track to rejoin the Rays on Saturday against the Astros.
Jul 7 - 9:13 AM

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

Odorizzi pitched well for High-A Charlotte on Wednesday, allowing just one run on two hits and one walk over four innings. He only got his pitch count up to 57, though, so the Rays will have him stretch out a little more. He'll rejoin the big club's rotation on July 11.
Jul 3 - 5:34 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) allowed just one run on two hits and one walk over four innings in his first rehab start with High-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

It was a nice showing for the right-hander. Odorizzi hopes that he'll have to make just the one rehab start, although the Rays are considering giving him another one. He threw just 57 pitches in Wednesday's outing.
Jul 3 - 11:33 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday at High-A Charlotte.

The outing had been scheduled for Thursday, but the Rays moved it up a day so he wouldn't be on the same schedule as Matt Moore. Odorizzi could require just the one rehab start before being activated, although it's possible the club will ask him to make two starts.
Jun 29 - 4:24 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte on Thursday.

He was cleared for game action after competing a 51-pitch live batting practice session on Saturday with no issues. There's a chance Odorizzi will have to make two rehab starts, although it's likely he'll need just the one if all goes well. He's been on the shelf since early June with a left oblique strain.
Jun 28 - 11:38 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) isn't expected to rejoin the Rays' rotation until after the All-Star break.

It was reported Monday that Odorizzi was two weeks away from a return, but that's apparently not the case. Officially, the Rays aren't setting a timetable for the righty's return, but the feeling is that it will take until after the break to build him back up. "No issue with the side or the oblique," manager Kevin Cash said. "But we have to build him back up. We have to be smart."
Jun 23 - 10:30 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) is two weeks away from being activated from the disabled list.

Odorizzi threw a 40-pitch bullpen session on Monday with no issues. He'll throw another 'pen session Wednesday before tossing live batting practice Saturday. If all of that goes well, he'll be cleared to begin a rehab assignment next. Odorizzi has been out since early June with a left oblique strain.
Jun 22 - 4:29 PM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) is expected to need two rehab starts before being activated from the disabled list.

Odorizzi resumed throwing off a mound Saturday and will throw a full bullpen session on Monday. It's not clear whether he'll be cleared for a rehab assignment at that point, but he's getting close to game action. Odorizzi should make it back to the Rays' rotation in early July.
Jun 21 - 10:41 AM

Jake Odorizzi (oblique) will throw off a mound on Saturday.

He'll then throw a full bullpen session on Monday, as Odorizzi has been playing catch and is now ready to try things from the bump. It's not clear at this point when he might be ready for a rehab assignment, but it shouldn't be long assuming he can avoid a setback.
