Jake Odorizzi pitched seven innings of three-run ball in a no-decision versus the Reds on Monday.
Odorizzi hasn't been very good of late, but fortunately for his owners, seven of the 19 runs he's allowed in his four starts this month have been ruled unearned. His ERA remains solid at 3.78, but it's a definite concern that he's given up 15 homers in 69 innings. Jun 19 - 11:45 PM

Jake Odorizzi gave up five runs -- three earned -- in 4 1/3 innings against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He allowed just one run through the first four frames before falling apart in the fifth. The big blow was a three-run jack by designated hitter Kendrys Morales. Odorizzi surrendered five hits and three walks while whiffing four batters. He has a steady 3.77 ERA with 55 strikeouts and 21 walks in 62 innings spread over 12 starts.

Jake Odorizzi struck out eight while allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a win over the White Sox on Thursday.

After stumbling in a loss to the Mariners his last time out, Odorizzi straightened it out with five clean frames before allowing three runs in the sixth. He was allowed to start the seventh and nearly finished it, but his 110 pitches ended his night. Still, it was a good rebound for the 27-year-old, who improved to 4-3 with a 3.59 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with the victory. Odorizzi will look to keep it going Wednesday when the Rays visit the Blue Jays.

Jake Odorizzi allowed eight runs - three earned - and four hits with three walks across just 2 1/3 innings in a loss at Seattle on Friday.

Odorizzi was the victim of a costly error by Brad Miller in the first inning, allowing the flood gates to open early. The pitcher was never able to recover, finally getting knocked out in the third inning. He threw just 45 of his 77 pitches for strikes and got himself into trouble, too, allowing two homers.
Jun 3 - 3:55 AM

Jake Odorizzi gave up two runs on seven hits and took a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Twins.

The first run scored on a sacrifice fly in the second inning, and the second run scored on an Eddie Rosario solo shot in the fourth frame. Odorizzi burned through a lot of pitches while walking four and fanning four, and had to be lifted from the game after throwing 118 pitches. He has a cool 3.14 ERA with 41 strikeouts and 14 walks in 48 2/3 innings spread over nine starts.
May 27 - 5:56 PM

Jake Odorizzi gave up two runs in six innings Monday in a no-decision against the Angels.

Odorizzi struck out a season-high eight. Excepting the one-inning start in which he was hurt, Odorizzi has given up a homer all seven times out this year. Still, he has a 3.14 ERA anyway, which is pretty impressive.
May 22 - 11:40 PM

Jake Odorizzi was charged with four runs over six innings in Tuesday’s 6-4 victory over the Indians.

It looked like he was going to cruise to a fourth straight terrific start since returning from the disabled list, but Odorizzi ran into trouble in the sixth with back-to-back singles, an RBI groundout and then a two-run homer by Edwin Encarnacion. He struck out five with just one walk, though, and now boasts a 21/4 K/BB ratio over 24 frames since coming back from a hamstring injury. Odorizzi gets the Angels next.
May 16 - 9:39 PM

Jake Odorizzi pitched six innings of one-run ball Thursday in a hard-luck loss to the Royals.

Odorizzi got an assist in the first, when Corey Dickerson took a solo homer away from Eric Hosmer. Despite giving up six homers, Odorizzi has a 2.21 ERA and a 0.81 WHIP after six starts this year.
May 11 - 4:23 PM

Jake Odorizzi gave up just one run in seven innings during a 6-1 win over the Blue Jays on Saturday.

He surrendered three hits and did not walk anyone. He struck out six while earning his second win of the campaign. The only run came in the first inning courtesy of an Ezequiel Carrera solo shot. Odorizzi is off to a great start to the 2017 season despite spending two weeks on the disabled list with a hamstring strain, registering a 2.88 ERA with 20 strikeouts and four walks in 25 innings through five starts.
May 6 - 8:35 PM

Jake Odorizzi held the Marlins to two runs over five innings in his return from the disabled list Monday.

Tampa Bay won the game 4-2, but Odorizzi took a no-decision because he left to a 2-2 score. The hard-throwing right-hander yielded just two hits and one walk while striking out five, looking sharp after missing just over two weeks with a left hamstring strain. He'll carry a 3.50 ERA into his next start at home against the Blue Jays.
May 1 - 11:34 PM

Rays activated RHP Jake Odorizzi from the 10-day disabled list.

Odorizzi, who has been out since April 15 with a left hamstring strain, will make his return to the Rays' rotation Monday against the Marlins. He didn't require a minor league rehab assignment. Odorizzi had a 4.15 ERA and 8/3 K/BB ratio in 13 innings prior to hitting the DL.
May 1 - 3:39 PM

Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) said Wednesday's simulated game went well.

That view was shared by manager Kevin Cash. Odorizzi has been cleared to return Monday against the Marlins after missing two starts with a strained hamstring. Erasmo Ramirez made one start in his absence while Austin Pruitt made the other in what was deemed as a "bullpen" game.
Apr 26 - 9:38 PM

Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) will have his simulated game pushed back from Tuesday to Wednesday.

Odorizzi didn't have a setback with his hamstring, but the thought is that the weather could be better on Wednesday and would allow him to get on the field. It would also put him five days out from his expected return on May 1 against the Marlins.
Apr 25 - 3:47 PM

Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) is on track to rejoin the Rays' rotation on May 1 in Miami.

Odorizzi threw a bullpen session over the weekend and will go through a four-inning simulated game on Tuesday. The right-hander says the strained left hamstring that put him on the disabled list is no longer an issue. Odorizzi posted a 4.15 ERA in his first 13 innings for the Rays before the injury.
Apr 24 - 4:43 PM

Jake Odorizzi (hamstring) will throw a bullpen session Saturday.

The hope is that Odorizzi will miss just two starts, but the Rays will have a better idea as to his timetable following the session. Erasmo Ramirez made a start in his plate on Thursday.
