Rays | Jake Odorizzi takes hard-luck loss

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:37:12 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi gave up only one hit and struck out six over seven innings Sunday, May 29, against the New York Yankees, but that one hit was a two-run shot off the bat of SS Starlin Castro, resulting in a 2-1 setback.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi did not allow a baserunner through six frames but ran into trouble in the seventh when he issued a one-out walk to Brett Gardner and served up Castro's decisive home run. The 26-year-old is somehow only 2-3 despite a 3.36 ERA and 1.10 WHIP, but he stands a decent shot at earning his third win of the season Friday in a road start against the Minnesota Twins.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi has solid outing

Tue, 24 May 2016 19:25:35 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi pitched five scoreless innings against the Miami Marlins Tuesday, May 24, to record his second win of the season. He allowed two hits, while striking out seven batters and walking three.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi has not pitched more than five innings in any of his last three starts but has won each of his last two starts. He is scheduled to face the New York Yankees in his next start and should be a decent starting option in some mixed leagues.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi earns first win

Wed, 18 May 2016 19:33:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (1-2) allowed two runs on two hits over five innings in a victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 18, with four walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Although the Rays are 4-5 through Odorizzi's nine starts, he hadn't recorded a win of his own until Wednesday's contest. His next outing will come against the Miami Marlins Monday, May 23, but he makes a risky play in DFS due to an inability to consistently pitch deep into games.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi remains winless

Fri, 13 May 2016 19:31:31 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (0-2) allowed five runs on seven hits over four innings in a loss to the Oakland Athletics Friday, May 13, with one walk and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: The Rays are 4-4 in games started by Odorizzi in 2016 despite the fact that he is still searching for his first victory. He has a tough matchup for his next scheduled start against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, May 18, and is not a recommended fantasy option due to his inability to consistently pitch deep into games.

Orioles | Matt Wieters not starting Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 12:54:50 -0700

Baltimore Orioles C Matt Wieters is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays. C Caleb Joseph is hitting eighth against Rays SP Jake Odorizzi.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal day off for Wieters, who was the catcher in the Monday game. He has a .239 average in April with only one home run, but you should keep an eye on Wieters for fantasy purposes.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi shaky Thursday

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 16:33:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi allowed eight hits (one home run) and five earned runs while walking one and striking out three in four innings for a no-decision against the Boston Red Sox Thursday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi was lucky to not be saddled with the loss, as the Rays came back to bail him out. Give him a pass in this one, though, as pitching in Boston is never an easy task. With strikeout upside and good control as more of a ground-ball pitcher, Odorizzi has breakout potential in 2016.

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 20:03:46 -0700

Rays | Jake Odorizzi struggles Thursday

Thu, 31 Mar 2016 16:26:51 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi allowed eight runs on six hits in one inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, March 31.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi finished the spring with a 6.92 ERA but will be one of the team's top starting pitchers this season. Odorizzi should be a middle-round option in mixed leagues and can be used as No. 3 or No. 4 starting pitcher. He is scheduled to face the Toronto Blue Jays in his first regular season start and would be a risky option because of Toronto's power potential.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi makes adjustment

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 05:43:15 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi made a quick adjustment in his delivery Sunday, March 6, after pitching coach Jim Hickey spotted Odorizzi's head leaning to the left. This caused Odorizzi to lose his line to the plate and walk two batters.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi has some strikeout potential and is a nice chip on the fantasy back end of the rotation.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi bulks up

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 11:26:54 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi "put on a little bit more muscle, more weight," according to manager Kevin Cash.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi could be a breakout candidate in 2016 if his dominance and control both meet in the middle ground. Target him as a middle-rounds sleeper for your fantasy staff.
