Rays' Jake Odorizzi allows one run in no-decision Thursday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi didn't factor into the decision Thursday after giving up just one earned run on three hits and three walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 2-1 win over the Red Sox.
Odorizzi allowed his only run on a sacrifice fly in the second inning, but the Rays weren't able to take a lead in the game until the final play of the night, which was a walkoff RBI single by catcher Rene Rivera. The pitcher has posted a 1.65 ERA and 22:8 K:BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Yankees in New York Tuesday in his next start.
Rays starter Jake Odorizzi comes apart in sixth inning, takes loss
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/18/15) Rays starter Jake Odorizzi (2-1) held the Yankees scoreless through five innings on Saturday but was touched for three runs in the sixth and ended up suffering the loss.|
He struck out nine in his six innings of work in his first loss of the year.
Odorizzi came into Saturday's game as the third AL pitcher in the last 100 years to start the season by winning consecutive starts of six-plus innings, two hits or fewer and one run or less.
Odorizzi will look to get back in the win column on Thursday against the Red Sox.
Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi goes eight strong innings in win Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi allowed just one run on two hits in eight innings of work in Tampa Bay's 2-1 win over the Blue Jays Monday.
Odorizzi used 103 pitches, 63 going for strikes, to navigate his start. His lone blemish came in the fifth inning after surrendering a double to Kevin Pillar. Second baseman Devon Travis singled him home. Odorizzi finished the inning off with a strikeout. His ERA remains low at 0.61 and will look for a third straight win Saturday against the Yankees.
Rays' Odorizzi on '15 debut: 'I wanted to execute and that's what I did'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi had seven strikeouts in his season debut Wednesday against the Orioles. Six of his strikeouts were on swings and misses, as well as changeups.
"I was commanding it with all my pitches," Odorizzi said, per MLB.com. "Throwing curve balls, slow curve balls when I needed to keep them off everything else. For the most part, I think commanding the zone was a big part of how successful we were tonight."
Odorizzi has allowed two hits or fewer four times in his career, including Wednesday. He is 4-0 with a 0.00 ERA in those outings.
"I warmed up well and sometimes that doesn't translate to a game," he said. "It doesn't show up. ... I was relaxed, I wasn't nervous, I wasn't anything. It was just another game. I kind of took that mentality into it. I wanted to execute and that's what I did."
|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.
