Jake Odorizzi hits speed bump in 7th, Rays start road trip with loss to Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Danny Santana's triple keyed a late two-run rally, and Phil Hughes pitched seven strong innings Friday night to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays. Hughes (3-4) gave up two runs and five hits to win his third straight start. Glen Perkins pitched a scoreless ninth for his 12th save in as many opportunities. Rays starter Jake Odorizzi...

Preview: Twins vs. Rays

The Minnesota Twins' dreadful pitching performance was to blame for their latest defeat, but their hitters have hardly been at their best for much of this week. That could make Friday night's matchup with the Tampa Bay Rays' Jake Odorizzi especially challenging. Minnesota (19-16) absorbed a 13-1 drubbing in Thursday's finale in Detroit, overshadowing a lineup that produced just five...

Jake Odorizzi Epitomizes Tampa Bay’s Pitching Development Excellence

Jake Odorizzi has come a long way since he was involved in the franchise-altering Wil Myers/James Shields trade from December of 2012. When he arrived in Tampa Bay, Odorizzi was a tenured prospect with an ordinary four-seam fastball and several developing off-speed pitches. Now, just over two years later, Odorizzi is quietly emerging as one of the top right-handed starters in baseball...

Sporting an impressive K/9 number, Jake Odorizzi headlines available Week 16 Two Start Pitchers

The All-Star break is over and the second half is here which means it’s crunch time in Fantasy Baseball. Not a lot of aces scheduled to start twice in Week 16, but there are a few good streaming options available.

Jake Odorizzi's self-confidence pays off with another strong June start

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Jake Odorizzi looked far from a sure thing early this season, when the young right-hander struggled through April and parts of May. He looked less confident than he had when he won the Tampa Bay Rays' fifth-starter job in spring training. He looked timid through his second and third encounters with an opponent's lineup. He looked overmatched. The baseball...

Jake Odorizzi honors 'The Thing' pitch with Dr. Seuss T-shirts

Thing 1 + Thing 2 = Strike 3. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi's new split/change pitch has been a buzzworthy topic in the Tampa Bay Rays clubhouse since spring training. The weapon, taught to him by Rays right-hander Alex Cobb, has been dubbed "The Thing," and it's one of the reasons why the 24-year-old broke into the Rays' rotation as their No. 5 starter with right-hander Jeremy Hellickson...

Jake Odorizzi's journey has him prepped for role in Rays' rotation

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Jake Odorizzi is sleeping better these days. It's hard to tell, because he has been the same, steady, easy-going Jake all along. It's hard to faze him. He's human. There are highs, and there are lows. He feels anxiety, and he lives relief. But mostly, he has been the same, constant, level-headed Jake since he joined the Tampa Bay Rays as part of the seven...
