Rays | Jake Odorizzi scratched Saturday

Sat, 09 May 2015 07:50:53 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (illness) will not make his scheduled start Saturday, May 9, because of an illness. The team will recall P Matt Andriese from Triple-A Durham to make the start.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has been pitching well this season and has a good chance to make his next scheduled start, but owners should monitor the situation. Andriese is probably not a great option to use in any league.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi has impressive outing

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 21:30:57 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi gave up just one run and two hits in his win over the Toronto Blue Jays Monday, April 13. He is now 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA in four career starts against Toronto. Odorizzi pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings in his season debut against the Baltimore Orioles last week. He struck out three and walked three against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: That's two impressive wins for Odorizzi ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) already this year. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues now, if he wasn't already.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi experimenting with new pitch

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 11:48:04 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi said he is experimenting on a hybrid slider/cutter in spring that he wants to use more in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi may not fall in our top-200 fantasy rankings, but he can be a high-impact starter for your fantasy squad in 2015. He went 11-13 with a 4.13 ERA in 31 starts last year, while posting a WHIP of 1.28 and 174 strikeouts in 168 innings. Think of Odorizzi as a cheaper version of his teammate Alex Cobb in fantasy drafts.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi adds weight

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 10:36:43 -0800

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi put on 17 pounds in the offseason in order to strengthen his core and base, and he now weighs 197 pounds. "My upper body's not that much different, it's almost all from the waist down," Odorizzi said. "Just more strength for pitching, and more stability. … More body control having a sturdier base." He will stick with a tailored version of the plan this spring to maintain his weight.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi went 11-13 with a 4.13 ERA in 31 starts for the Rays last year in his first full season. His WHIP was 1.28 and he had a healthy K/9 of 9.3. There is plenty of upside and value available with Odorizzi, who will be a cheaper version of Alex Cobb later in your mixed league drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi came into this league with a lot of hype, and he is definitely starting to live up to those expectations. He is a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues and plenty of mixed formats as well.

Rays | Alex Colome will start Friday

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 08:51:45 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Alex Colome will be called up from Triple-A Durham to start the first doubleheader game Friday, June 27, against the Baltimore Orioles. SP Jake Odorizzi will start the second contest.

Fantasy Tip: The intriguing but erratic Colome would be used as a spot-starter for appropriate deep-mixed situations. He may be an option to take a rotation spot should the Rays do any cleaning of house near the trade deadline, so he's worth an AL-only stash.

Rays | Jake Odorizzi scratched

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 13:09:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi (illness) will not make his scheduled start Tuesday, April 15. RP Brandon Gomes will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: His flu-like symptoms apparently were too taxing for him to start on Tax Day. Gomes isn't a recommended fantasy play, especially for the possibility that Joe Maddon mixes and matches to fill innings tonight.
