Rays' Odorizzi adds 17 pounds to help strengthen lower body
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/23/15) Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi spent the offseason working to strengthen his core and base, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Odorizzi reported to camp at 197 pounds following a 17-pound weight gain.
"It was just eating a lot of food, obviously healthy food, but pretty much as much as I could shovel in," Odorizzi said. "Pretty much every meal I ate was larger than I would have had last year. … There were just a lot of meals, like six or seven a day. I'd eat something every two-three hours.
"My upper body's not that much different, it's almost all from the waist down. Just more strength for pitching, and more stability. … More body control having a sturdier base."
Odorizzi is hoping the added weight will help increase the velocity on his pitches.
"I feel really good, that's the main thing," he said. "Everything feels good coming out, my body feels strong. That's the most I can ask for coming into spring."

Odorizzi (11-13) finishes the season with two ugly lines in his last three starts. After being staked to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, the starter gave up a pair of runs in the second, with one coming on a home run. The Red Sox broke through with five runs in the fourth, with three of the runs being hung on Odorizzi. He ends the season with a 4.18 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 174:59 K:BB ratio in 168 innings.
Jake Odorizzi spins six one-run innings in win vs. Yankees
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/16/14) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi earned a win Tuesday, giving up one earned run on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out three in his team's 6-1 victory over the Yankees.
Odorizzi (11-12) gave up an RBI single in the second inning and appeared he may be headed for a tough loss befor the offense came through with a run in the fifth and another in the sixth. Three of his last four outings have been excellent, but he also has two clunkers in his last five starts. Odorizzi owns a 3.98 ERA and 171:56 K:BB ratio in 165 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox next Tuesday.
Jake Odorizzi turns in a rough game Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/10/14) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi had a rough game Wednesday against the Yankees.
Odorizzi gave up six runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Odorizzi was spotted a four-run lead before he got on the mound, but couldn’t hold on. The Yankees consistently put pressure on him, scoring at least a run in all but one inning against Odorizzi. Brian McCann proved to be a thorn in his side. McCann singled home two runs in the third inning, and would come around to score on a triple in the fifth. Odorizzi was replaced at that point, but was charged with his sixth run after departing.
With the loss, Odorizzi dropped to 10-12. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
Jake Odorizzi looks dominant in no-decision
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/5/14) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi had another dominant outing on Thursday, but failed to factor into the decision at home against Toronto. He allowed three hits and no walks while striking out three over seven scoreless frames. |
Of his 95 pitches, 68 were strikes. He own s a 3.84 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 28 starts (154 2/3 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday in New York against the Yankees.
|2014 summary: Few starting pitchers provided a clearer start/sit decision rule than Jake Odorizzi did in 2014. He had a 2.62 ERA and 1.04 WHIP at Tropicana Field and a 6.32 ERA and 1.62 WHIP on the road. Odorizzi's extreme flyball tendencies and Tropicana Field's hostility to home runs had much to do with the lopsided splits, but he fared better at home in other regards, including a lower walk rate and a higher popup rate. The overall result was less than impressive: an 11-13 record, a 4.13 ERA, a 1.28 WHIP and an 81st-place ranking among staring pitchers in Fantasy points.|
Playing time status: Odorizzi logged 31 starts in his first full year in the Rays' rotation, but he managed to pitch only 168 innings. Efficiency is not exactly his strength, so Odorizzi's impact on your Fantasy staff will likely be watered down by a relative lack of innings.
2015 outlook: Because Odorizzi is a little too wild and more than a little vulnerable to the long ball, he may not develop into a pitcher standard mixed league owners can trust on a weekly basis. If he can shore up those weaknesses, though, he could not only be a must-start option, but a high-end one. Despite the immense risks he entails, it could be worth your while to invest a late-round pick on Odorizzi.
