Odorizzi (9-8) tossed six innings of two-run ball to earn the win Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing one hit with two walks and six strikeouts. Odorizzi took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in this one, only to see Jackie Bradley ruin both that and the shutout with a two-run home run. He ran up his pitch count before finishing the frame and was not brought back out for the seventh, as his side turned over a newfound lead to the bullpen. Odorizzi has now allowed just three earned runs across 16.1 innings in his last three starts and will look to build off of this successful outing Saturday against the Orioles.
Odorizzi (8-8) allowed five runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks across 3.2 innings while taking the loss Monday against the Yankees. He struck out five. Odorizzi coasted through three innings before struggling in the fourth, when he allowed four runs on three hits, two walks, an error and a catcher's interference. Though his teammates' gaffes meant four of the runs didn't affect his ERA, the Rays never mounted an offensive charge and doomed him to his eighth loss. Odorizzi was coming off of his best start in recent memory and will look to get back on track Sunday against the Red Sox.
Odorizzi (8-7) tossed 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Twins, allowing one hit and one walk with six strikeouts. Odorizzi was terrific in this one and took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, only to see it ruined by an infield single with one out. The right-hander struck out the next man he faced but was then lifted somewhat prematurely, with just 90 pitches under his belt. This stellar outing came at the right time for Odorizzi, who had allowed 13 runs across 12.1 innings over his last three starts. He will look to build on this performance Sunday against the Red Sox.
Odorizzi (7-7) gave up three runs on four hits and three walks over five innings Wednesday, but that was enough for a win against the Royals. He struck out three. Considering the recent struggles of the Royals' offense -- which was shut out for four consecutive games before scoring six runs against the Rays on Tuesday -- this has to be considered a disappointing outing for Odorizzi, who threw 84 pitches and didn't even record a quality start despite coming away victorious. On the bright side, all of Kansas City's runs came on one swing: a three-run homer by Whit Merrifield in the third inning. Times have been tough for Odorizzi lately, as he didn't even finish the fourth inning in either of his two prior starts. In fact, his last 10 outings have seen the righty give up 34 runs in 48 innings -- that's a 6.38 ERA and less than five innings per start, which isn't exactly the stuff of fantasy championships.
Odorizzi (6-7) allowed seven runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out two over 3.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Mariners. Odorizzi gave up all seven of those runs after the second inning. Not only has he dropped three straight decisions this month, his ERA has risen from 4.47 to 4.74, making him a difficult player to trust in fantasy lineups. He'll make his next start Saturday against the Cardinals.
