Rays SP Jake Odorizzi impresses in rehab outing


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi was solid during his first rehab outing for Class A Advanced Charlotte on Wednesday, per MLB.com.

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."

Odorizzi is on the disabled list with a left oblique strain and is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Wednesday. If all goes well, he would begin a rehab assignment Saturday.

"There's going to be a buildup process," Rays manager Kevin Cash said. "I'm not going to sit here and say it's going to be a five-rehab-start buildup, but he's going to have to build back up. He's taken multiple weeks off now of really throwing with high intensity."

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.

Rays' Jake Odorizzi allows four runs in win vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2015) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi earned a win on Sunday, allowing four earned runs on seven hits and two walks in six-plus innings while striking out six in his team's 9-5 victory over the Orioles.

Odorizzi (4-5) served up three homers in the game, two courtesy of Delmon Young in the first three innings and a two-run shot with no outs in the seventh to the last batter he faced. He had surrendered just two home runs over his first 10 starts of the season before struggling to keep the ball in the park on Sunday.

"Odo was Odo. Perfect again, kind of what we've come to anticipate," manager Kevin Cash said to the Tampa Tribune. "Probably a little gassed going back out there, but the value of him trying to get three more outs was beneficial for our bullpen. It didn't work out, but he pitched a heck of a ballgame."

Odorizzi owns a 2.61 ERA and 59:14 K:BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Mariners in Seattle on Friday.


Rays P Jake Odorizzi pitches well in loss to Mariners


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi allowed two runs — one earned — in Monday night's 4-1 loss to the Mariners. 

Odorizzi had a good game, going seven innings and allowing five hits. He struck out seven batters and walked two. His season total for strikeouts is now at 53.

Rays P Jake Odorizzi has strong game but earns loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi allowed two earned runs in Wednesday night's 2-1 losss against the Braves. 

Odorizzi gave up a run each in the third and sixth innings. He went six total innings and gave up four hits, two walks and struck out two batters. 

"You feel for him because he's pitched really well all year," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, via MLB.com. "At the same time, he's a pro. He gets it. He just keeps going out there giving us what we need."

This is Odorizzi's third loss in a row, even though he's had strong efforts in each game. His run support has been lacking, however, as the Rays have only scored a combined five runs in his last three starts. 

Odorizzi's next start is projected for May 25 against the Mariners.

"I felt better, but I ... tried to give us as many innings as possible with what I had," Odorizzi said. "It was a tough one, but I was able to get through it and the defense really helped me out. I was just trying to pitch to contact to get as many outs as I could as quick as I could."
