Jake Odorizzi To Start Against Toronto Blue Jays

Rays NewsAs first reported by Marc Topkin  of the Tampa Bay Times Jake Odorizzi will make his Tampa Bay Rays  debut starting against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday. The move won’t be made official until Sunday.

Alex Torres who pitched four hitless shutout innings for Tampa Bay against Baltimore On Saturday will likely head back to Durham.

Odorizzi  is replacing David Price who  went on the disabled list with a strained biceps earlier this week.

Odorizzi, a 23-year-old right-hander, is 4-0 with a 3.83 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 47 strikeouts in 44 2/3 innings this season in Triple-A Durham was part of the trade that sent James Shields and Wade Davis to Kansas City for uber prospect Wil Myers.

Fantasy Play:  There are better places to get your first start with your new team that in Toronto.  The best play here  would be to watch closely before jumping on board.
