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.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi is experimenting with a new changeup this spring as he competes for the fifth starting rotation spot. Odorizzi is using the same split-finger grip as SP Alex Cobb, and he's hoping to have similar success with the new pitch. SPs Erik Bedard and Alex Colome are also competing with Odorizzi for the No. 5 spot.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi will primarily compete for the No. 5 starting rotation spot with SP Alex Colome this spring. Odorizzi went 0-1 with a 3.94 ERA in seven major league games last year after going 9-6 with a 3.33 ERA in 22 starts for Triple-A Durham.

Tampa Bay Rays SP Jeremy Hellickson (elbow) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow last week and is expected to be out until mid to late May. The surgery was done to remove loose bodies from his arm in what was a minor surgery, but he's expected to miss the first six to eight weeks of the season. He went 12-10 with a 5.17 ERA in 2013. SP Jake Odorizzi will likely be counted on to fill Hellickson's rotation spot. SPs Alex Colome and Enny Romero are other options.
Fantasy Tip: Odorizzi can be a late-round flier to fill out your rotation in deeper leagues. He leans more on control, like Hellickson, so his upside is limited, at least this early in his major league career.
