The Rays announced on Wednesday that pitcher Jake Odorizzi has been activated from the 10-day disabled list. He’ll square off against Rick Porcello in Wednesday night’s home game against the Red Sox.

Odorizzi, 27, was placed on the disabled list on July 26 with a lower back strain. He’ll pick up where he left off, holding a 4.47 ERA with an 82/35 K/BB ratio in 94 2/3 innings.

Getting Odorizzi back is good news for the Rays, who enter Wednesday’s action 6.5 games behind the Red Sox for first place in the AL East and tied with the Royals and Mariners for the second AL Wild Card slot.
