Rays get right-han­der Odorizzi back from DL

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Rays will bring right-han­der Jake Odorizzi off the dis­abled list and start him Satur­day against Hous­ton, with Matt Moore pitch­ing Sun­day in their fi­nal game be­fore the All-Star break. Rays man­ager Kevin Cash made the an­nounce­ment be­fore Wed­nes­day’s game in Kansas City. Odorizzi has missed 30 games while deal­ing with a strained left oblique that landed him on the DL on June 9. Along with All-Star Chris Archer, Odorizzi had been one of the bright spots in Tampa Bay’s ro­ta­tion, go­ing 4-5 with a 2.47 ERA in his first 12 starts. Moore will be mak­ing his third start fol­low­ing Tommy John surgery. The for­mer Al­lS­tar has al­lowed eight runs over nine in­nings in his first two out­ings.
