Jake Odorizzi News
Houston Astros starter Jake Odorizzi lasted only three innings in the Astros 5-1 loss to the Red Sox on Thursday. Odorizzi (0-3) struggled with his control, walking three, and was surrendered a three-run home in the second inning. The 31-year-old was pulled after 76 pitches and his ERA jumped up to 7.16. Odorizzi simply does not look like the type of pitcher that in 2019 went 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA and a 10.08 K/9 rate. There is plenty of time to right the ship but, for now, Odorizzi is not an appealing fantasy option.
Houston Astros starting pitchers Framber Valdez (finger) and Jake Odorizzi (forearm) are expected to be activated from the injured list and pitch this weekend, according to Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle. Valdez fractured the ring finger on his throwing hand back in Spring Training, and was originally believed to have suffered a season-ending injury. Meanwhile, Odorizzi has been out since late April after suffering a forearm strain. In their most recent rehab outings at Triple-A, Valdez struck out two over four scoreless innings while Odorizzi had seven strikeouts in 4 2/3 scoreless innings of work. Valdez is now the scheduled starter on Friday against the Padres, with Odorizzi set to take the mound on Saturday. Managers should make sure to slot both Valdez and Odorizzi into their lineups as soon as they are activated.
Houston Astros starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi (forearm) had a strong rehab outing at Triple-A on Monday. He pitched 4 2/3 scoreless innings, allowing five singles and no walks while striking out seven. Odorizzi told reporters that he is "ready to go" after the start. He will most likely make his next start for the Astros. Odorizzi was first placed on the injured list in late April after suffering a forearm strain. He made just three starts this year before hitting the injured list, pitching eight innings and allowing 10 hits, three walks and nine earned runs while striking out 11.
Houston Astros starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi (forearm) resumed throwing on Thursday. The veteran has occupied a spot on the 10-day disabled list after straining a muscle in his right forearm. The 31-year-old hasn't played well this season despite being an All-Star in 2019, so fantasy managers wouldn't lose much by dropping him.
