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.
Apr 5 - 10:55 PM

Jake Odorizzi was torched for eight runs in one-plus innings by the Pirates on Thursday.

Yikes. Odorizzi, though, is a top-15 starter in AL-only leagues entering the year. He does have a tough one coming up in the first week, as he'll be facing the Blue Jays.
Mar 31 - 5:03 PM

Jake Odorizzi picked up his first win of the spring with 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday against the Pirates.

Odorizzi struck out six and walked two. He's one of 2016's best breakthrough candidates, though really, most of the breakthrough came about last year (3.35 ERA, 150/46 K/BB in 169 1/3 IP).
Mar 27 - 1:19 AM

Jake Odorizzi was charged with four unearned runs in 1 1/3 innings Sunday against the Twins.

The runs were unearned, but Odorizzi walked two before the error and subsequent grand slam in the first inning. He went on to walk one more in the second before getting pulled. The lack of control is anything but typical for him. Odorizzi looks like one of the AL's better breakthrough candidates this year.
Mar 6 - 4:35 PM

The White Sox and Cubs have spoken with the Rays about acquiring a starting pitcher.

Jake Odorizzi has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason. The White Sox and Cubs have also checked in on Desmond Jennings, who could be available now that Corey Dickerson has been added to what should be a crowded Rays' outfield. Odorizzi is a native of southern Illinois. The right-hander is under team control through 2019.

Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports that the Cardinals have been active in talks with the Rays about acquiring a starting pitcher.

The Rays have been shopping several of their starters around, so it's unclear at the moment who the Cardinals are inquiring about. Jake Odorizzi is from the St. Louis area and would make a lot of sense for the Cardinals, and had been talked about in previous trade discussions with the Dodgers. Drew Smyly, Matt Moore and Erasmo Ramirez would also be possibilities as the Cardinals strive to replace the hole in their rotation created by the departure of John Lackey and injury to Lance Lynn.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports no trade is imminent between the Dodgers and Rays regarding Jake Odorizzi.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported earlier in the day that the two sides were talking, but several sources indicated to Topkin that the sides are still pretty far apart. The Dodgers would likely have to give up quite a lot to get Odorizzi, who had a 3.35 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 150/46 K/BB ratio over 169 1/3 innings last year.
