3/22/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Rays manager Joe Maddon has named Jake Odorizzi the team's fifth starter, according to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times. Odorizzi beat out Erik Bedard and Cesar Ramos.
Insight: The Rays acquired Odorizzi from the Royals along with Wil Myers in the package for James Shields, and the 23-year-old had a 3.94 ERA in 29 2/3 innings last season. He also had a 3.33 ERA, a 1.13 WHIP and 124 strikeouts in 124 1/3 innings with Triple-A Durham. He'll try to hold down the fort until Jeremy Hellickson returns from elbow surgery in June. Ramos will pitch in high-leverage situations out of the bullpen, and Bedard will opt out of his contract if he's demoted to the minors.
 
6/18/2013 1:48:00 PM
Description: Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi has been recalled from Triple-A Durham to start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.
Insight: This is Odorizzi's third stint with the team this season. He's considered one of the team's top prospects, but has struggled with the big league club. He has allowed 17 hits and 11 earned runs in 12 1/3 innings over three appearances (two starts) and isn't expected to remain with the team after Tuesday.
 
6/11/2013 6:23:00 PM
Description: Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi has been recalled from Triple-A Durham.
Insight: However, he's not joining the rotation this time. The team needed a fresh arm in the bullpen after Monday's 14-inning game. Odorizzi, who was acquired from Kansas City along with Wil Myers in the James Shields trade, is one of the team's top prospects, but he allowed 13 hits and nine runs in nine innings earlier this season when he was called up to join the rotation.
 
5/22/2013 5:48:00 PM
Description: Rays right-hander Jake Odorizzi's next start has been pushed back to Monday, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. That means he'll get the Marlins instead of the Yankees.
Insight: Odorizzi was called up from Triple-A to take David Price's spot in the rotation while Price is on the DL with a triceps strain. In his first start of the season Odorizzi, who was acquired from the Royals in the James Shields trade, allowed five hits and three runs in his first two innings but finished up by retiring nine of 10 from innings 3-5. He should be owned in all 12-team mixed leagues.

Insight: Odorizzi is 4-0 with a 3.83 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB in 44 2/3 innings with Triple-A Durham this season. The other choices were Chris Archer and Alex Colome, but Odorizzi was expected to be the guy all along. He should be added in deeper mixed leagues.
 
5/16/2013 3:23:00 PM
Description: Rays pitching prospect Jake Odorizzi is the likely choice to replace David Price in the rotation Monday. Price was placed on the 15-day DL Thursday with a strained left triceps.
Insight: Odorizzi is 4-0 with a 3.83 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB in 44 2/3 innings with Triple-A Durham this season, while Chris Archer is on a limited pitch count after some abbreviated starts at Triple-A, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. If Archer makes his scheduled start Thursday afternoon with Durham, we'll know the team has chosen Odorizzi. Odorizzi should be added in most formats given Tampa Bay's past success with pitching prospects.
 
5/3/2013 4:45:00 PM
Description: Rays pitching prospect Jake Odorizzi is second in the International League with 36 strikeouts in 27 innings. He also has a 3.33 ERA.
Insight: Odorizzi has been traded twice for frontline starters, going from Milwaukee to Kansas City for Zack Greinke and from Kansas City to Tampa Bay for James Shields. Chris Archer, who has a 4.06 ERA and 35 strikeouts in 31 innings, will likely get the callup before Odorizzi if the Rays need a starter.
