Odorizzi (finger) is on the Twins' wild-card roster, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
Odorizzi battled multiple injuries throughout the season and went on to make just four starts, allowing 10 earned runs in 13.2 innings. He most recently missed time due to a blister but is evidently ready to pitch in some capacity now. He isn't listed as the expected starter for any of the three potential wild-card games, however, so he'll presumably be stuck in a relief role for the series.
Odorizzi (finger) has progressed well in his recovery and will likely be available for the postseason, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Odorizzi landed on the injured list Friday with a right middle finger blister, but manager Rocco Baldelli sounded optimistic about his availability for the postseason. "He's healed well. His finger looks good. He's played catch. It's all gone fine," Baldelli said. The Twins are taking steps to avoid a setback in his recovery, but he'll likely be available for the team's wild-card series.
Odorizzi was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a right middle finger blister, retroactive to Sept. 17, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
The 30-year-old returned from an abdominal issue Wednesday but left that start during the fourth inning due to the blister. Odorizzi will be eligible to return from the injured list for the regular-season finale Sept. 27, though it's unclear if he'll require additional time to recover. The Twins have scheduled off days Monday and Thursday and won't require a fifth starter in his absence before the playoffs.
Odorizzi (abdomen) left Wednesday's start against the White Sox in the fourth inning due to an issue with his finger, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Odorizzi appeared to be dealing with a blister or fingernail issue before he was forced to leave in the middle of an at-bat. He was pitching well prior to his departure, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out three in 3.2 innings. He was making his first start since Aug. 21 after he was activated from the 10-day injured list earlier in the day.
Odorizzi (abdomen) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the White Sox, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Odorizzi took a line drive off his chest Aug. 21 that has kept him sidelined since, but he'll make his return to the mound Wednesday. The right-hander reached 81 pitches during his most recent simulated game, so it's unlikely that he'll face significant limitations during his return.
Odorizzi (abdomen) will be activated from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday against the White Sox, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The 30-year-old has been sidelined since Aug. 21, when he took a liner off his chest, but he's ready to retake the mound Wednesday versus the top team with the best record in the AL. Odorizzi completed two simulated games and reached 81 pitches in his most recent outing, so he shouldn't face significant limitations in his first start off the injured list.
Odorizzi (abdomen) is expected to return from the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday's game against the White Sox, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
Out since Aug. 21 after taking a line drive off the chest in a start versus the Royals, Odorizzi looks ready to go after completing two simulated outings at the Twins' alternate training site in St. Paul. Considering he tossed 81 pitches in his most recent sim game, Odorizzi looks to be relatively built up for a starter's workload as he prepares for a return. Odorizzi has been limited to just three starts for Minnesota this season, as he opened the abbreviated campaign on the IL due to a strained intercostal muscle.
Odorizzi (abdomen) pitched in a intrasquad game Friday and could return from the injured list next week, manager Rocco Baldelli told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
It sounds like Odorizzi is ready to return from the injured list as this was his third rehab outing, but the Twins don't have an immediate opening in the rotation with five healthy starters pitching well. Odorizzi could also use some extended time to build back arm strength since he's only made three starts this season. It's not clear when Odorizzi will return as a result.
Manager Rocco Baldelli said Tuesday that Odorizzi (abdomen) will make another rehab appearance at Minnesota's alternate training site in St. Paul before returning from the 10-day injured list, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Odorizzi threw about 60 pitches in a rehab outing Saturday in St. Paul. Baldelli said Odorizzi would return in mid-September, so the exact timing of his activation from the injured list is uncertain. The Twins may delay his return with five starters healthy and throwing well and also because he may need some extended time to build back arm strength since he's only made three starts this season after beginning the season on the injured list due to a back injury. Odorizzi suffered an abdominal bruise after getting hit by a line drive in his Aug. 22 start and was subsequently placed on the injured list.
Odorizzi (abdomen) threw about 60 pitches at Minnesota's alternative training site in St. Paul on Saturday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "Physically, he came out in a very good place. That was encouraging," manager Rocco Baldelli said.
Baldelli mentioned that Odorizzi will have another throwing session before the Twins decide on any timetable for his return. Odorizzi suffered an abdominal bruise after getting hit by a line drive in his Aug. 22 start and was placed on the injured list
Odorizzi (abdomen) will throw a bullpen session when the Twins return to Target Field on Monday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Odorizzi suffered an abdominal bruise after getting hit by a line drive in his Aug. 22 start and was placed on the IL. He was too sore to throw the past few days, but it sounds like he's making progress. However, he may need some extended time to build back arm strength since he's only made three starts this season after beginning the season on the injured list due to a back injury.
Odorizzi (abdomen) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
Odorizzi was hit in the chest by a line drive that forced him out of Friday's start early, and he'll miss additional time as a result of the injury. It's unclear exactly how much time he'll have to spend on the injured list. The right-hander sputtered out of the gates to begin the season as he carries an 8.10 ERA over 10 innings during his first three starts, albeit with a strong 9:2 K:BB. Sean Poppen and Daniel Coulombe were added to the 28-man roster in corresponding moves.
Odorizzi was diagnosed with an abdominal contusion following Friday's loss to the Royals, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Odorizzi labored through his start Friday, allowing five runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out one over three innings prior to being hit by a line drive. He was charged with the loss as a result of the performance. Odorizzi said that he had the wind knocked out of him after being hit, but whether he'll be forced to miss any additional time remains to be seen. The right-hander now carries an 8.10 ERA over 10 innings across his first three starts this year.
Odorizzi left Friday's game in the fourth inning after getting hit by a batted ball in the chest, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Odorizzi gave up five runs on seven hits with one strikeout over three innings before departing. He was able to walk off on his own power but was noticeably wincing in pain.
Odorizzi allowed two earned runs on three hits and no walks while striking out six across four innings in the first game of the team's doubleheader Saturday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.
Odorizzi retired the first 11 batters he faced, six of them on punchouts. However, he was quickly pulled after allowing a single and home run to the first batters he faced in the fifth inning, leaving him short of qualifying for the win. Even so, it was a positive outing for Odorizzi, as he showed improved control in his second outing of the campaign. He'll look to work deeper into the game in his next outing, currently projected to come Thursday against Milwaukee.
Odorizzi will start Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Royals on Saturday after Friday's contest was postponed, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Friday's contest was postponed due to rain, but Odorizzi will still be ready to start to open the series against Kansas City. He'll take the mound for the first of the seven-inning contests Saturday with Jose Berrios starting Game 2. Odorizzi allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings in his season debut.
Odorizzi allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings in a no-decision against the Royals on Saturday.
A limited pitch count was expected for Odorizzi after he missed the start of the season with a back issue, and he could only get nine outs on his 71 pitches. He gave up a homer to Jorge Soler in the third inning, so this was one to forget, but Odorizzi took a big leap last season and he's in a great situation with the Twins. The right-hander will look to go deeper into the game next week in a rematch against the Royals, this time in Minnesota.
Odorizzi won't throw more than 70 or 75 pitches in his season debut against the Royals, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Back issues popped up for Odorizzi in the middle of camp and delayed his season debut. He threw just over 50 pitches in his most recent live batting practice session, so he won't come close to a full starter's workload Saturday, but there's a chance he pitches deep enough to earn a win if he's efficient and effective.
Odorizzi (back) was activated off the 10-day injured list Saturday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
Odorizzi has been recovering from back stiffness since the end of camp, but he'll make his season debut Saturday against the Royals. The right-hander threw 50 pitches his last time facing batters and could throw between 70 and 75 pitches against the Royals, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Josh Donaldson (calf) was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move.
Odorizzi (back) will come off the injured list to start Saturday's game at Kansas City, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
He was expected to be on track for a weekend activation and it sounds like his latest side session went off without a hitch. The Twins haven't indicated how deep Odorizzi will be able to go in the outing, but he draws a strong fantasy matchup on paper for what will be his season debut.
