Jake Odorizzi earns first win as Astro
Between injuries and shaky outings, 2021 has been off to a rough start for Jake Odorizzi. He showed a glimmer of hope on Wednesday, though, as he recorded his first win of the year. He allowed three runs on three hits and a walk over five innings against Boston while striking out six batters.
Odorizzi is now 1-3 with a 6.75 ERA, so it’s still too early to trust him from a fantasy perspective. With that said, Wednesday was a step in the right direction. At the very minimum, he’s done enough to remain in Houston’s rotation for the time being.
The Astros have added the top player remaining in free agency, announcing an agreement with righty Jake Odorizzi. The deal is a two-year pact with a player option for the 2023 season. Odorizzi is represented by Excel Sports Management.
