Rays starter Jake Odorizzi exits Friday’s start with an injury

3 Comments

Rays starter Jake Odorizzi was tended to by a team trainer, then was taken out of the game with one out in the fifth inning during Friday’s start against the Mariners. Odorizzi had allowed an infield single to Brad Miller, then struck out Mike Zunino before walking Dustin Ackley on four pitches. Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune suggests the injury has to do with Odorizzi’s right side.

Odorizzi, 25, has been stellar in 11 starts for the Rays entering Friday’s action. He compiled a 2.61 ERA with a 59/14 K/BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings. Needless to say, losing Odorizzi for any amount of time hurts the Rays, who are 29-26 and only a game behind the Yankees for first place in the AL East.

Update (9:16 PM ET): Aaaaaand it’s over. Just like that. Starlin Castro led off the eighth inning with a solo home run to left field. That ends the shutout bid as well, obviously.

Padres starter Chris Paddack has kept the Marlins hitless through seven innings on Wednesday evening in Miami. The right-hander has allowed two base runners on a throwing error and a walk while striking out seven on 82 pitches.

The Padres’ offense provided Paddack with three runs of support, all coming in the fourth on Greg Garcia‘s RBI single and a two-run home run by Austin Hedges.

Paddack, 23, entered Wednesday’s start carrying a 2.84 ERA with an 87/18 K/BB ratio across 82 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Among all 30 teams, the Padres are the only one without a no-hitter. They came into the league in 1969. The Marlins were last victims of a no-hitter on September 28, 2014 when Jordan Zimmermann — then with the Nationals — accomplished the feat.
