by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) The Rays have made changes to their rotation, flip-flopping Jake Odorizzi and Nathan Karns, per the Tampa Bay Times.

Odorizzi will now start Sunday in Boston with Karns going Monday against the host White Sox.


Rays' Jake Odorizzi evens record at 6-6 with win


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2015) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi won for the first time since July 11, improving to 6-6 on the year, Tuesday against Detroit. 

Odorizzi allowed one run, the third time in five outings that he's surrendered zero or one runs. He struck out eight, his most since April 18, and gave up one run over six innings.


Rays SP Jake Odorizzi mediocre in no-decision Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi still hasn't recorded a quality start since May 25, but his performance Wednesday in Philadelphia represented a small step forward.

Odorizzi allowed two runs on five hits in in five innings with two walks and five strikeouts. The effort took the bad taste out of his mouth after after a pounding Friday in Toronto.

He retired 10 of the last 11 batters he faced in the no-decision. Odorizzi settled down after allowing the first three to reach. A double play scored one and single tallied another, but he shut the Phillies out thereafter.

Odorizzi has given up 17 walks in his last 38 1/3 innings pitched, which partially explains his inability to get through the necessary six to secure a quality start.


Rays' Jake Odorizzi gives up six in loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) Rays starter Jake Odorizzi gave up six runs in 4 1/3 innings in Friday's loss to Toronto.

Rays to start second half with Odorizzi, Ramirez, Archer vs. Jays


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Rays have not yet announced how the rotation will follow in the next series in Philadelphia.


Rays SP Jake Odorizzi strong again in taming Astros


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/11/2015) Rays starter Jake Odorizzi continued to provide the bullpen with plenty of work Saturday, but he again kept his team in the game against Houston.

The result was a win in which he pitched shutout ball for 5 2/3 innings with two hits, three walks and five strikeouts to even his record at 5-5.

Odorizzi cruised through the first three innings, but loaded the bases in the fourth before retiring Hank Conger on a foulout. It was his only jam of the night, but he wasn't totally satisfied.

"I think at some points in the game I got too cute with [my offspeed stuff] and I threw it a little too much and got behind, which caused me to walk guys," Odorizzi told MLB.com. "If I execute a few good pitches there, it's a different story. I just wasn't executing too many of them, but I was able to make good pitches when it counted."

Odorizzi has surrendered three runs or less in seven of his last eight starts and has lowered his ERA to a fine 2.30.

Rays' Cash confirms Jake Odorizzi will return to rotation Saturday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2015) Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Wednesday starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi will return to the rotation Saturday against the Astros. Odorizzi, who has been on the disabled list since June 9 with a left oblique strain, threw a bullpen session Wednesday, which went well, per Cash.

"Huge [lift getting him back]," Cash said, per MLB.com. "Just kind of like the [James] Loney lift, getting these guys back. Guys that we penciled in at the start of spring. Odo has already done a lot this season. But I think if you look what him and [Chris Archer] kind of combined to do. Veteran pitchers in our pitching staff, it allows those extra days and extra innings for our relievers not be used."


Rays SP Jake Odorizzi says he's eager to rejoin rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2015) Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi (oblique) made his second and final rehab start for Class A Charlotte on Monday.

The right-hander was brilliant, tossing 5 2/3 scoreless innings. He allowed 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 to get all my pitches in, and I was able to get more outs than the five innings I was scheduled for,” he said, per The Tampa Tribune.

Odorizzi is expected to rejoin the Tampa Bay rotation Saturday against the Astros after he allowed one run in 9 2/3 innings during his rehab assignment.

“Everything went well,” he said. “It went as best as it could, and I’m ready to get back and contribute again.”

Odorizzi tossed four innings, struck out two batters and allowed one run. He threw 57 pitches and was impressive while recovering from a left oblique strain.

"This is my first time doing a rehab assignment, so it probably went about as well as it could," Odorizzi said. "My arm felt really good, the breaking pitches were really good -- I was surprised with the sharpness after not pitching for three weeks, and it felt like I hadn't skipped a beat. So it was a great sign."
 
Odorizzi said he is on track to return to the team with at least one more rehab start under his belt.
 
"I feel like the stuff I had today, I could have taken into today's [Rays] game and been perfectly fine and out there doing normal things," Odorizzi said. "I was really encouraged with how everything went."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Odorizzi threw a bullpen session on Monday and will still need to participate in at least a couple of rehab starts before re-joining the team. 

"We're not committed to putting a timetable on him yet because he's just thrown one bullpen," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "He's got to get out there and see some hitters and then we'll factor that in where he is."

Rays place SP Jake Odorizzi (oblique) on disabled list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2015) An oblique injury has forced the Rays to place starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi on the 15-day disabled list, the Tampa Tribune has reported.

Odorizzi referred to it as a mild strain and added he hopes to be throwing again by this weekend. How his oblique reacts to that will determine a timetable for his return.

Pitching coach Jim Hickey had indicated that the right-hander was going to miss a few starts with the injury, which was sustained in his Friday start.

Odorizzi has been a pleasant surprise after posting a mediocre 4.13 ERA in 2014. He has lowered it to 2.47 despite a 4-5 record. He has markedly improved his control, walking just 15 in 76 2/3 innings.

Odorizzi left his last start Friday against the Mariners due to an left oblique injury. After opening the season with a 3-2 record and 2.09 ERA in seven starts, Odorizzi is 1-3 with a 3.07 ERA in his last five starts.
