Rays vs. Red Sox GDT: All sorts of starters!

New, comments

TV game + many starters = oh boy!

So Jake Odorizzi is the fifth starter. And who knows? Baseball is full of injuries and ineffectiveness -- Odo might get 28+ starts this year. I know I certainly didn't pencil Archer in for 23 starts last year. The projection systems aren't exactly sold on Odorizzi:

Season Team G GS IP K/9 BB/9 HR/9 BABIP ERA FIP WAR
2012 Royals 2 2 7.1 4.91 4.91 1.23 0.280 4.91 5.41 0.0
2013 Rays 7 4 29.2 6.67 2.43 0.91 0.287 3.94 3.89 0.3
2014 Steamer 17 17 96.0 7.03 3.46 1.25 0.281 4.30 4.52 0.5
2014 Oliver 27 25 146.0 7.20 3.20 1.29 0.287 4.06 4.44 0.7
2014 ZiPS 27 25 136.0 6.62 4.10 1.13 0.294 4.57 4.77 0.2
Total - - - 9 6 37.0 6.32 2.92 0.97 0.286 4.14 4.19 0.3

But I myself peg him for a decent chance at a 3.80 ERA if things go well. Be you never know.

We FINALLY get a Sun Sports broadcast today.
