News: Odorizzi (9-10) pitched 6.2 innings Wednesday against the Tigers, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out seven in the loss. Impact: Wednesday's outing marks Odorizzi's third straight quality start, and he's allowed a total of just five runs in those outings (19.2 innings pitched). For the most part, Odorizzi is getting the job done and now sports a 3.83 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 153:48 K:BB ratio in 136.1 innings this year. His next start is scheduled for Monday on the road against the Orioles.(RotoWire, )

News: Odorizzi had another nice outing Thursday, allowing two runs and four hits over seven innings at Texas. He issued just one walk and struck out seven batters. Impact: Other than a five-run clunker on August 3, Odorizzi has been great in his last 10 outings (59.1 innings), with five quality starts and 65 strikeouts during that stretch. On a down note, he hasn't been able to pitch deep into games this season, going seven innings or more in just four of 24 starts. One might assume that his great strikeout rate (10.2 K/9IP) is an explanation for his short outings, as strikeout artists tend to run up a high pitch counts. He's averaging just 97.6 pitches per start though, so it's more that the Rays haven't unleashed him yet. Whichever the case, Odorizzi's stock would rise if he worked deeper into games, as his aforementioned strikeout rate is fifth best among all MLB starting pitchers.(RotoWire, )
