Tampa Bay Rays SP Jake Odorizzi Exits Start with Pulled Hamstring

On just his 18th pitch of the game, Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi felt tightness in his hamstring. Trainers came out and after he was unable to throw warmup pitches with his usual effectiveness and feel, the team pulled him from the game. Tampa Bay announced shortly after that he was pulled with left hamstring tightness.

Odorizzi's removal from the game brought in long reliever Erasmo Ramirez, who immediately allowed a home run but was sharp after that. Across four innings, Ramirez surrendered just three hits and one walk with two strikeouts and 46 pitches thrown. With four days of rest, Ramirez could be the likely replacement for Odorizzi in Tampa Bay's rotation.

While Tampa Bay's pitching in Triple-A and Double-A is deep, no current options are ready for a call up. Top prospect Jose De Leon is currently on the disabled list in Triple-A, while fellow top pitching prospect Brent Honeywell is in Double-A.

Odorizzi's status for his next start is uncertain. We'll provide a further update and the fantast impact when information becomes available.
