"It was just eating a lot of food, obviously healthy food, but pretty much as much as I could shovel in," Odorizzi said. "Pretty much every meal I ate was larger than I would have had last year. … There were just a lot of meals, like six or seven a day. I'd eat something every two-three hours.
"My upper body's not that much different, it's almost all from the waist down. Just more strength for pitching, and more stability. … More body control having a sturdier base."
Odorizzi is hoping the added weight will help increase the velocity on his pitches.
"I feel really good, that's the main thing," he said. "Everything feels good coming out, my body feels strong. That's the most I can ask for coming into spring."
Odorizzi (11-13) finishes the season with two ugly lines in his last three starts. After being staked to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, the starter gave up a pair of runs in the second, with one coming on a home run. The Red Sox broke through with five runs in the fourth, with three of the runs being hung on Odorizzi. He ends the season with a 4.18 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 174:59 K:BB ratio in 168 innings.
Odorizzi (11-12) gave up an RBI single in the second inning and appeared he may be headed for a tough loss befor the offense came through with a run in the fifth and another in the sixth. Three of his last four outings have been excellent, but he also has two clunkers in his last five starts. Odorizzi owns a 3.98 ERA and 171:56 K:BB ratio in 165 innings. He's scheduled to face the Red Sox next Tuesday.
Odorizzi gave up six runs on five hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Odorizzi was spotted a four-run lead before he got on the mound, but couldn’t hold on. The Yankees consistently put pressure on him, scoring at least a run in all but one inning against Odorizzi. Brian McCann proved to be a thorn in his side. McCann singled home two runs in the third inning, and would come around to score on a triple in the fifth. Odorizzi was replaced at that point, but was charged with his sixth run after departing.
With the loss, Odorizzi dropped to 10-12. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start.
Of his 95 pitches, 68 were strikes. He own s a 3.84 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 28 starts (154 2/3 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Thursday in New York against the Yankees.
