The Tampa Bay Rays will test their organizational pitching depth this week. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reported that Jake Odorizzi will be recalled to start game two of Tuesday’s day-night doubleheader with the Boston Red Sox. Alex Colome will take Alex Cobb‘s turn in the rotation on Thursday.
Odorizzi as made two starts for Tampa Bay this season and appeared in one game as a reliever and has a 8.03 ERA across 12 innings of work, with 12 strikeouts and four walks.
Colome made his debut against the Miami Marlins earlier this season and earned a 5-2 win, while pitching into the sixth inning. He struck out seven and walked two. Cobb is on the seven DL with a concussion after being hit in the head with a line drive off the bat of Eric Hosmer on Saturday.
