Odorizzi didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-3 win over the Rangers, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings while striking out five.
The right-hander threw 59 of 99 pitches for strikes before getting the hook one out shy of his eighth quality start of the season. Odorizzi will take a 3.50 ERA and 131:46 K:BB through 126 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against the White Sox.
Odorizzi didn't factor into the decision against the Braves on Monday, giving up one earned run on five hits over six innings, striking out seven and walking three as the Twins won 5-3.
He didn't get the win, but it was a second straight solid outing for Odorizzi after he endured a nine-run blowup against the Yankees on July 24. He's cooled down since his lights-out start to the season, but the 29-year-old's numbers still look solid overall through 22 starts, as he's sporting a 3.61 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP and a 120:40 K:BB across 114.2 innings.
Odorizzi, who was lined up to start Sunday's game against the Royals, will be pushed back at least one day in the pitching schedule with the Twins recalling Devin Smeltzer from Triple-A Rochester to take the hill for the series finale with Kansas City, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Odorizzi isn't believed to be dealing with any sort of injury, so the Twins will likely just have him pick up an extra day rest before returning him to the rotation in Monday's series opener with the Braves. Smeltzer will assume the rotation spot that had previously belonged to Michael Pineda (triceps), who was moved to the 10-day injured list earlier this weekend. Assuming Odorizzi ends up receiving the nod Monday, he would line up for a two-start week, with his second turn coming Aug. 10 versus the Indians.
Odorizzi (12-5) picked up the win in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Marlins, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out five.
After getting wrecked by the Yankees in his last outing, Odorizzi bounced back with a much stronger effort in Miami, throwing 103 pitches (68 strikes) before getting yanked one out shy of his seventh quality start of the year. The right-hander will take a 3.73 ERA and 113:37 K:BB through 108.2 innings into his next start Sunday, at home against the Royals.
Odorizzi (11-5) was charged with the loss against the Yankees on Wednesday after surrendering nine runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out seven over four innings.
Odorizzi gave up a season-high nine runs after struggling with control. In all, the right-hander threw a first-pitch strike on just half of the 24 batters he faced. Didi Gregorius proved to be Odorizzi's nemesis after swatting an RBI double in the second inning and a two-run triple in the fourth. Aaron Hicks and Gleyber Torres also gave Odorizzi trouble with solo home runs in the third. It was the first time in his last six starts the 29-year-old failed to complete six innings. Odorizzi now owns a 3.84 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 108:36 K:BB for the season and will look to bounce back at Miami on Tuesday.
Odorizzi didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 5-3 loss to the A's, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over five innings while striking out three.
The right-hander exited the game after 88 pitches (56 strikes) with the score tied 3-3, the fifth straight start in which he's failed to complete six innings. Odorizzi is unsurprisingly 1-2 with a 6.35 ERA over that stretch, but he could have trouble turning things around in his next outing Wednesday, when he faces the Yankees at Target Field.
Odorizzi (11-4) earned the victory Saturday in Cleveland after giving up one run on three hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out two and walked two.
Odorizzi looked solid in his return from the injured list after dealing with a blister, but he was unable to complete the sixth inning after hitting a batter and issuing a walk. The 29-year-old had a 7.85 ERA in his previous four starts before landing on the IL, so it was good to see a return to form after some brief time off. Odorizzi lines up to take the mound next weekend against the Athletics.
Odorizzi (finger) was activated ahead of Saturday's start against the Indians.
A blister resulted in there being 10 days in between starts for Odorizzi, but he hardly missed any meaningful time due to the All-Star break.
The Twins plan to activate Odorizzi (finger) from the 10-day injured list to start Saturday's game against the Indians.
Odorizzi developed a blister on his right middle finger in his most recent start July 2 against the Athletics, prompting the Twins to withhold him from his final start of the first half last weekend. The Twins' decision to place him on the IL also prevented Odorizzi from appearing in his first All-Star Game on Tuesday, but the time off has at least allowed the right-hander to overcome the minor issue. Odorizzi shouldn't face a strict cap on his pitch count as he returns to the mound Saturday, though manager Rocco Baldelli has been reluctant to allow the 29-year-old to cover more than six innings in most of his outings this season anyway.
The Twins placed Odorizzi on the 10-day injured list after he sustained a right middle finger blister during his start in Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Athletics, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Odorizzi failed to deliver a quality start for the fourth straight outing Tuesday, ceding six runs (five earned) on four hits and three walks over three innings while striking out two. While Park notes that Odorizzi could pitch through the blister if needed, the Twins wanted to get ahead of the matter and give him extra time to heal up ahead of the second half. Odorizzi thus appears to be in line for a minimum stay on the IL or close to it, though the injury will prevent him from starting Sunday's game against Texas and appearing in his first All-Star Game next week. Zack Littell was called up from Triple-A Rochester in a corresponding move to provide the bullpen with an extra arm, but the Twins haven't announced a replacement in the rotation for Odorizzi.
Odorizzi was pulled from Tuesday's game versus the Athletics due to a right middle finger blister, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Odorizzi was visited by the athletic trainer after giving up a grand slam during the fourth inning Tuesday and exited the game after throwing a couple more pitches. The severity of the issue is not yet known, but the Twins could play it safe and wait until after the All-Star break to give the 29-year-old his next start, which is currently scheduled for Sunday.
Odorizzi was removed from Tuesday's game at Oakland with an apparent finger issue, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Odorizzi was visited by manager Rocco Baldelli and the athletic trainer during the fourth inning and they appeared to be examining one of his fingers before he exited the game. The 29-year-old gave up six runs (five earned) across three innings prior to leaving the contest. The specifics of the issue remain unclear, but if there is any concern at all the team could push his next start -- currently scheduled for Sunday -- to after the All-Star break.
Odorizzi did not factor into the decision during Wednesday's win over the Rays, allowing three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.1 innings.
Odorizzi had no problem finding the strike zone against his former club, but he did lose command earlier than expected in the sixth inning. A hard-hit groundout, a home run and a walk chased Odorizzi off the mound after he threw 91 pitches. Overall, two homers accounted for all three of his runs allowed. With 10 wins on the season, the 29-year-old remains tied for the AL lead with Justin Verlander and Lucas Giolito. Odorizzi will take a 2.73 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 94:27 K:BB into a showdown Tuesday with Oakland.
Odorizzi (10-2) earned the victory Saturday against the Royals by surrendering four runs on seven hits over six innings. He struck out seven and walked two.
Odorizzi gave up more than three runs for only the second time this season, but the Minnesota offense rallied to provide him with his third straight win. The 29-year-old has a 2.24 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 85:24 K:BB in 14 starts this season, and he lines up to pitch again versus the Royals on Thursday.
Odorizzi (9-2) gave up one run on five hits and one walk while striking out eight through six innings to get the win against the Tigers on Sunday.
Odorizzi showed flashes of brilliance as he forced 14 swinging strikes and worked his way out of early trouble to pick up another win. He now has three consecutive wins and has only allowed four runs in his last 47.2 innings. The 29-year-old has a 9-2 record with a 1.92 ERA and 10 K/9 through 13 starts this season. Odorizzi will look for another quality start in his next start Saturday at home against the Royals.
Odorizzi is scheduled to start Sunday against the Tigers, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
It remains to be seen who will start for the Twins on Friday, but Kyle Gibson and Jake Odorizzi will finish out the series for Minnesota. Odorizzi last took the mound Sunday against the Rays, so he will be pitching on six days of rest when he gets the ball for Sunday's series finale in Detroit. Over his last five starts, the righty is 4-0 with a shiny 0.94 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 32:6 K:BB in 28.2 frames.
Odorizzi (8-2) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out nine across six scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday against the Rays.
Odorizzi kept his impressive 2019 campaign going, striking out nine batters in consecutive starts. He also pitched deeper into the game than has been customary for him this season, registering only his fourth quality start of the campaign. Still, his ratios have been outstanding as he now has a 1.96 ERA and 0.96 WHIP with 70 strikeouts across 64.1 innings. He hasn't lost a decision since April 10 and has recorded a win in nine of his last 10 outings. Odorizzi will look to keep his strong run of success going in his next start, currently scheduled for Saturday at Detroit.
Odorizzi (7-2) fired 5.1 scoreless innings Sunday, yielding a hit and a walk while striking out nine and picking up the win over the White Sox.
Odorizzi was dominant once again but his high pitch count prevented him from going very deep. He allowed a walk and a single in a 25-pitch third inning but escaped undamaged. The 29-year-old lowered his ERA to a terrific 2.16 in 58.1 frames this season. Odorizzi will take on his former team in Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Odorizzi threw five innings in a no-decision against the Angels on Monday, giving up three hits and no earned runs. He struck out six and walked two as the Twins eventually prevailed, 3-1.
Odorizzi was solid once again in this contest, but he would settle for a no-decision as Taylor Rogers ended up getting tagged with a blown save after relinquishing a 1-0 lead. The right-hander is still off to an excellent start to the season, as he now sports a 2.38 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP through 53 innings. He's lined up to take on the White Sox in his next start in a home matchup Sunday.
Odorizzi (6-2) allowed three runs on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks across 5.1 innings during a victory against the Angels on Wednesday.
For the first time since April 22, Odorizzi gave up runs, snapping a streak of 22 straight scoreless innings. All three runs came via the long ball against Odorizzi -- it was the first time this year he's allowed more than one homer in a game. Although snapping the streak was disappointing, Odorizzi still improved to 6-2, and he owns a 2.63 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 46 strikeouts in 48 innings this year. His next scheduled start will be against these same Angels.
