Jake Odorizzi Recalled

The Rays have recalled Jake Odorizzi from Triple-A after placing Alex Cobb on the bereavement list, according to the official team site’s transaction log.

It should not surprise anyone to see a fresh arm in the Rays bullpen following Monday night’s 14-inning game, however, this was not the expected move. That would’ve been placing Kyle Farnsworth, who left Monday’s game with right arm soreness, on the disabled list. Instead the Rays promoted Durham’s probable starter to serve as a long reliever. Cobb, meanwhile, is dealing with a death in the family.

The Rays could still place Farnsworth on the disabled list in the coming days. Presumably Josh Lueke or Jeff Beliveau would then head to Tampa Bay, though a vacant spot on the 40-man roster gives the team flexibility to add a non-roster place like Kirby Yates if they so desired.
