  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: MRI brings good news

    Odorizzi said his recent MRI revealed some strains and sprains to the ligaments of his right foot/ankle, but the Astros haven't established a timeline for his return to action, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Odorizzi noted that he initially feared he ruptured his Achilles' tendon Monday, when he was carted off the field after going down in pain while he attempted to run and cover first base. Though the right-hander is confident that he'll return to this season, he still appears destined to spent well beyond the minimum 15 days on the IL. A clearer target date for his return likely won't materialize until he's able to resume on-field workouts.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Heads to IL

    The Astros placed Odorizzi on the 15-day injured list Tuesday with lower left leg discomfort.

    The diagnosis matches how the Astros labeled the injury shortly after Odorizzi was carted off the field in the sixth inning of his start Monday against the Red Sox. The team relays that Odorizzi underwent an MRI on his leg earlier Tuesday, but a clearer update on the exact nature and severity of his injury may not be known for another day or two. Houston recalled reliever Seth Martinez from Triple-A Sugar Land to take Odorizzi's spot on the 26-man active roster, but the team may not tab a replacement for him in the rotation. Odorizzi had already been part of a six-man rotation, so the Astros may choose to condense their starting staff to the traditional five pitchers in the wake of his absence.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Carted off

    Odorizzi was carted off the field during Monday's game against Boston after suffering an apparent leg injury, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. He allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings prior to exiting.

    Odorizzi suffered the injury after popping off the mound in an effort to cover first base, but he crumbled to the ground before reaching the bag. The nature of his injury is unclear at this time, though it's worth noting that he wasn't able to put any weight on his left leg, per Bill Koch of The Providence Journal.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Earns win in scoreless start

    Odorizzi (3-2) yielded one hit and two walks over five shutout innings Sunday, striking out five and earning a win over the Tigers.

    The only danger that Odorizzi faced in the victory came during the fourth inning; after two walks and a wild pitch, he had two runners in scoring position with one out but escaped the jam unscathed. The veteran righty has allowed just one run over 17.2 frames during his three-start winning streak after giving up 12 runs (nine earned) in his first three outings. Odorizzi will carry a 3.38 ERA into next week's projected start in Washington.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Impressive again in win

    Odorizzi (2-2) earned the win over Seattle on Monday, completing 6.2 scoreless innings during which he allowed four hits and one walk while striking out three.

    Odorizzi didn't miss many bats in the contest -- he induced only six swinging strikes -- but he didn't give up any extra-base hits or allow any Mariners to reach second base. The right-hander started the season poorly, posting a 9.00 ERA through his first three starts, but he has bounced back to allow just one run over 12.2 frames across his past two trips to the mound. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which lines up to come at home against Detroit this weekend.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Dominant over six frames

    Odorizzi (1-2) tossed six innings, giving up one run on one hit and a walk while striking out four on his way to a win Tuesday over the Rangers.

    Odorizzi was almost perfect Tuesday with his only run given up coming on an Adolis Garcia solo homer in the bottom of the second inning. His four strikeouts were a season high while he picked up his first win of the campaign. After back-to-back challenging outings, Tuesday's start brought his season numbers from a 9.00 ERA and 2.56 WHIP to a more manageable 6.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP. He'll look to build off of this start when he faces the Mariners on Monday.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Can't escape first inning

    Odorizzi (0-2) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering six runs (three earned) on two hits and four walks over two-thirds of an inning as the Astros fell 6-0 to the Angels. He struck out two.

    The first five Los Angeles batters all reached base against Odorizzi, and while a Yuli Gurriel two-out error after he'd already gotten the hook tacked some additional runs onto his ledger, there's no silver lining for the right-hander here. Odorizzi has a brutal 9.00 ERA, 2.56 WHIP and 5:7 K:BB through nine innings over his first three starts, and it may not be long before he loses his spot in the rotation entirely given how effective Cristian Javier has been in long relief, including 3.2 scoreless frames Wednesday.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Hit hard by Mariners

    Odorizzi (0-1) took the loss during Friday's 11-1 defeat at the hands of the Mariners, allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks with one strikeout in 4.1 innings.

    Odorizzi permitted multiple baserunners leading to runs in the first, fourth and fifth innings, only for the Houston bullpen to allow seven more runs in the final three innings. That's now consecutive starts going fewer than five innings for the 32-year-old, who has offered little in the way of strikeouts thus far as well.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Solid through four innings

    Odorizzi took a no-decision during Friday's 13-6 victory over the Angels, allowing two runs on six hits with two strikeouts in four innings.

    Odorizzi surrendered both runs in the first but settled down to limit Los Angeles' offense thereafter and bide time for Houston's offense to ignite. The 32-year-old is set to face Seattle in his next start Friday and should hold the fifth spot in Houston's rotation at least until Lance McCullers returns from injury.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Set to start Houston's second game

    Manager Dusty Baker confirmed Odorizzi will start the Astros' second game of the season April 8 against the Angels in Anaheim, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Odorizzi won out over Cristian Javier for the fifth and final spot in the rotation, a role that opened up when it became apparent earlier this spring that Lance McCullers (forearm) wouldn't be ready to go for Opening Day. Though he was moved to the bullpen during the playoffs last fall when the Astros shortened their rotation, Odorizzi's larger body of MLB starting experience and solid first half in 2021 before forearm issues torpedoed his season were enough to give him the edge on Javier for the rotation spot heading into 2022. Odorizzi helped his cause by proving his health in his lone Grapefruit League appearance March 22, when he tossed two scoreless innings against the Mets. He's since continued to build up his pitch count in simulated games.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Available for ALCS

    Odorizzi has been included on the Astros' ALCS roster, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The absence of Lance McCullers (forearm) opened a roster spot for Odorizzi, who is a candidate to start Game 4 on Tuesday. The 31-year-old pitched twice against Boston in early June, allowing six earned runs on seven hits and four walks in eight total innings.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: Not included on ALDS roster

    Odorizzi isn't included on the Astros' ALDS roster, Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Odorizzi made two starts late in the regular season after he returned from a foot injury, but he won't be part of the rotation for the ALDS. However, he'll be on the taxi squad and will be available to fill in during an emergency situation.

  • Astros' Jake Odorizzi: No-decision Saturday

    Odorizzi didn't factor into the decision Saturday against the Athletics after allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk across 4.2 innings, fanning three.

    Odorizzi ended a streak of six straight appearances allowing two or fewer runs, and this was his fourth straight no-decision as well. He posted a 3.15 ERA through his five appearances since the beginning of September, but his season-long ERA was a 4.21 mark through 104.2 innings across 24 appearances (23 starts).
