Jake Odorizzi spins six one-run innings in win vs. Yankees


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) 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
(9/10/2014) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jake Odorizzi eaten alive by home runs


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/25/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi had a rough start Monday against the Orioles.

Odorizzi allowed eight runs on 11 hits over four innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Home runs were a major issue for Odorizzi. He wound up giving up four long balls during the game. Odorizzi got through the first two innings with no issues, but ran into some trouble in the third. Odorizzi gave up a single to start the inning, and then allowed back-to-back home runs. He settled down enough to get out of the inning without giving up any more runs. After a scoreless fourth, things fell apart in the fifth. Odorizzi gave up three straight singles to open the frame, the last of which brought home a run. With two men on, Delmon Young hit a three-run blast. J.J. Hardy followed that up with a solo shot. Odorizzi was replaced before he was able to record an out in the fifth inning.

With the loss, Odorizzi drops to 9-11. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start. 


Jake Odorizzi loses his 10th game Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Tigers.

Odorizzi gave up three runs on five hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two during the outing. The Tigers struck early against Odorizzi. With two outs in the first inning, Rajai Davis doubled and Ian Kinsler singled home a run. Odorizzi then settled in, tossing five straight scoreless innings. He ran into trouble again in the seventh. The same exact sequence happened during the inning. Odorizzi struck out the first two batters of the inning, but allowed a double and run-scoring single to the next two hitters. He was removed from the game at that point. Another run score following his departure. That run was charged to Odorizzi. 

With the loss, Odorizzi dropped to 9-10. He’ll take on the Orioles in his next start.

Jake Odorizzi makes key adjustment


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2014) Rays starter Jake Odorizzi is 3-2 with a 2.28 ERA over his last seven starts, with opponents batting .204 against him, notes MLB.com. His turnaround began with a June 10 game against the Cardinals in which he allowed one run and three hits over 7 1/3 innings.

"I realized some things I hadn't seen before when I went out there," Odorizzi told the website. "Now I notice it every game, and it's translatable at the end of each game, and I can tweak it."

Odorizzi declined to elaborate on his adjustment. "Just, I did something different than what I normally do," he said. "And now that I'm doing it, it's like, 'Why didn't I do this from the get-go?'"

A Highland, Ill., native, Odorizzi will start Tuesday in St. Louis against the team he grew up rooting for.


Jake Odorizzi a second half stud?


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi could be a second half stud.

Odorizzi has emerged as a solid starter over the first half of the season, but there's still some room for improvement. His .321 BABIP suggests he may be experiencing poor luck on balls in play. It should be noted, though, that Odorizzi doesn't have a large sample to work with, so it's possible this is his natural BABIP. 

Still, that seems hard to believe. Odorizzi is primarily a fly ball pitcher, and those types of players tend to post lower BABIPs since fly balls turn into outs more often. All the other tools seem to be there, and Odorizzi could emerge as a second half star if things break right. 


Jake Odorizzi criminally underowned


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/14/2014) I don't know how many different ways I can say it: Jake Odorizzi is really good, much better than his year-to-date numbers would have you believe.

I understand his 5-8 record keeps him buried on the sortable stats page, but I had hoped his 3-1 record in his last five starts would turn the tide in his favor. It has, but not fast enough for my liking.

As always, it goes well beyond the record. His ERA and WHIP (as well as his win-loss record) were skewed by a disastrous start to the season. In his last 13 starts, he has a 2.95 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 11.0 strikeouts per nine innings.

Granted, the innings haven't always been so consistent during that stretch, but you can't discount those numbers too much, especially the strikeout rate. If you limited his season to just the last two-thirds, he'd rank third in that category, behind Clayton Kershaw and Yu Darvish.

I'm thinking I could find a roster spot for him in just about any league, and I'm not the only one who feels that way. Al Melchior named him one of five pitchers due for increased value in the second half.


Jake Odorizzi strikes out seven in win vs. Blue Jays


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi earned a win Saturday, giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings while striking out seven in his team's 10-3 victory over the Blue Jays.

Odorizzi (5-8) has now surrendered three runs or fewer in seven straight starts, and he continues to rack up the strikeouts. He owns an impressive 116:39 K:BB ratio in 101 innings while posting a 4.01 ERA going into the All-Star break.


Jake Odorizzi strikes out eight in quality start Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi was stuck with a loss Monday after giving up two earned runs on six hits and two walks in six innings and striking out eight in his team's 6-0 defeat against the Royals.

Odorizzi (4-8) worked his way out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the second inning before giving up two runs in the third. He was able to keep the Royals' offense mostly at bay, but the Rays' offense couldn't get anything going Monday. Odorizzi owns a 4.10 ERA and 109:37 K:BB ratio in 94 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Blue Jays Sunday.


Jake Odorizzi wins for second time in three starts


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi won for the second time in three starts during a 6-3 win Wednesday at N.Y. Yankees. He allowed three runs on eight hits and one walk, while striking out four in 5 2/3 innings.

Odorizzi's day got off to an ominous start, as he allowed a leadoff home run to Brett Gardner in the bottom of the first inning. He allowed two more hits -- both singles -- in the inning, but he limited the damage to one run.

The Rays tied the game before Brian McCann put New York ahead 2-1 in the third inning with a solo home run. The Rays tied the game again in the top of the fourth before Gardner had a two-out RBI single in the bottom of the inning to put New York back on top. The Rays tied the game in the fifth before taking the lead for good with a two-run homer in the sixth.

Wednesday was the first time in five starts Odorizzi (4-7) allowed more than two earned runs. He's expected to make his next start Monday against the Royals.


Jake Odorizzi struggles with control in no-decision


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/28/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi struggled to get through five innings Friday, in a 4-1 loss to the Orioles.

Odorizzi allowed just one run in his outing, but was in pretty much constant trouble throughout. He surrendered six hits and walked four batters, his highest total in more than a month. Odorizzi also struck six batters out before leaving after 106 pitches.

Odorizzi settled for a no-decision in the game, and remains 3-7 with a 4.14 ERA heading into his start against the Yankees Wednesday.


Jake Odorizzi to start Game 2 Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/25/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi will start Game 2 of the team's Friday double-header, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Odorizzi has posted a 4.29 ERA over 77 2/3 innings. Alex Colome is expected to start Game 1 Friday.


Jake Odorizzi on verge of breakthrough?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/23/2014) If you have yet to realize just what kind of impact Jake Odorizzi could make for your Fantasy team, time to look beyond the 3-7 record and 4.29 ERA.

Let's start with his year-to-date numbers since a smaller sample size is inherently open to criticism. He's averaging 10.5 stikeouts per nine innings -- third-best among qualifying starting pitchers, behind just Yu Darvish and Stephen Strasburg -- and has a 3.15 FIP. In case you're unfamiliar with FIP, it's an estimate of what a pitcher's ERA would be with luck and defense removed from the equation. Quite simply, he's pitched better than his overall numbers show.

And his more recent numbers bear witness to that. In his last nine starts, he has a 2.88 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 11.7 strikeouts per nine innings -- numbers without comparison at starting pitcher. The closest would probably be Madison Bumgarner, but even his strikeout rate is a little off.

Which isn't to say Odorizzi is on the verge of becoming a Cy Young contender -- he at times has trouble pitching deep into games, for one thing -- but a nine-start sample is nothing to scoff at. Nathan Eovaldi is still 80 percent owned because of a not-as-impressive eight-start stretch to begin the year. Right now, Odorizzi is looking like the more attractive of the two.


Jake Odorizzi fans 10, ends losing streak


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi spoiled Jake Buchanan's major-league debut Saturday, as he dominated the Astros in an 8-0 win.

Odorizzi pitched into the eighth inning while facing just three batters over the minimum. He allowed just one hit and a pair of walks in 7 1/3 inning of work, while striking out 10 batters on 111 pitches.

Odorizzi got the win to snap a winless streak that had reached six starts. He is still just 3-7 with a 4.29 ERA on the season, but will try to build on Saturday's outing when he takes the mound Friday in Baltimore. 


Jake Odorizzi surrenders two runs in no-decision vs. Orioles


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/16/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi wasn't a factor in Monday's decision, giving up two earned runs on three hits and two walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 5-4 win over the Orioles.

Odorizzi kept the Orioles off the board until the sixth inning, when he surrendered a two-run home run to Adam Jones. It was his second straight quality start after struggling in his previous two outings. Odorizzi owns a 4.73 ERA and 81:28 K:BB ratio in 70 1/3 innings. He's slated to take on the Astros Saturday.


Jake Odorizzi continues to make strides


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Judging by his 2-7 record, 4.85 ERA and 1.42 WHIP this season, Jake Odorizzi looks every bit like a pitcher you don't want in Fantasy.

But what those numbers conceal is a 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 12.1 strikeouts per nine innings in his last seven starts. Make those seven his first seven, and he's owned in more than twice as many leagues as he is right now.

Of course, his most recent start Tuesday against the Cardinals helped bring down those numbers a good bit. No doubt, a steadier stretch would have attracted more attention in Fantasy. But the point is the good starts for Odorizzi have been frequent enough that he deserves to be on your radar in mixed leagues despite the 2-7 record.

Obviously, he'll have to win at a better rate to contribute anything worthwhile, but I suspect we've seen the worst of the Rays so far. Doesn't mean you have to add him just yet, but keep an eye on him.


Jake Odorizzi takes hard-luck loss Tuesday vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Rays pitcher Jake Odorizzi was hung with a loss Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on three hits and one walk in 7 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 1-0 defeat against the Cardinals.

Odorizzi (2-7) took his third straight loss Tuesday but deserved better, surrendering only a sixth-inning solo home run but getting outdueled by Adam Wainwright. Odorizzi owns a 4.85 ERA and 76:26 K:BB ratio in 65 innings. He's scheduled to face the Orioles Monday.


Jake Odorizzi gets hit hard again in loss to Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2014) Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi continued to struggle in a Thursday afternoon loss to the Marlins, dropping to 2-6 on the year. The right-hander coughed up four runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out eight over five innings.

Over his last two starts covering 8 1/3 innings, Odorizzi has allowed nine earned runs. He has not won a decision since May 14 in Seattle. He will look to get back on track Tuesday at home against St. Louis.
