Twins All-Star Right-Hander Jake Odorizzi is placed on the injured list with a blister Dan Hayes of The Athletic . However, the output should only put Odorizzi back for a start. You'll remember the right Zack Littell from Triple-A Rochester, who took Odorizzi's 25-man squad place.
Odorizzis bubble helped him oust the loss of the twins against the athletics on Tuesday after he only threw three innings. He delivered six runs (five earned) in three hits, including two home runs, with three runs against two strikeouts. Odorizzi has now raced four consecutive times without a good start and has raised his ERA to 3.1
Despite recent problems, this was an impressive contract year for Odorizzi, who helped throw the twins into a 53-31 record and a seven-game lead in the AL headquarters. The 29-year-old has achieved a career high of 9.74 K / 9 (vs. 3.05 BB / 9) and a personal best of 3.59 FIP in 88 2/3 innings from a speed increase. While Odorizzi continues to show a dislike of Grounder, he has largely avoided HRs. However, that was not the case with his last picture and now he takes a short break.
