Jake Odorizzi Focused On Starting Today

Rays_Jake_Odorrizi_2013Jake Odorizzi is focused on Thursday’s start. That’s it. There’s little else.

His most recent promotion to the Tampa Bay Rays could last longer. Or he could receive word that he will be sent back to Triple-A Durham soon after. Whatever the case, the right-hander wants to maximize his chance to impress in another major-league start.

Odorizzi, 23, will be recalled from Durham on Thursday to start the series finale against the Los Angeles Angels at Tropicana Field. He is 0-0 with a 6.00 ERA in four starts with the Rays this season, the last a 5 2/3-inning effort in a no-decision against the Boston Red Sox on June 18 at Fenway Park.
