Rays make it official, call up Odorizzi to start Tuesday



The Rays made it official Monday, recalling RHP Jake Odorizzi from Triple-A Durham as the 26th man, and having him start Game 2 of Tuesday's day-night doubleheader in Boston.


Of course, Odorizzi's former roomate, OF Wil Myers, will be the headline act arriving at Fenway Park for his big-league debut. But Odorrizi, who scuffled at times in his first two starts with the Rays this season, will pitch the night game after RHP Chris Archer starts Game 1.

The Red Sox will start RHP Alfredo Aceves in the day game and LHP Felix Doubront at night.

RHP Jeremy Hellickson will start Wednesday.

With Odorizzi called up for Tuesday, it means that RHP Alex Colome will likely get the call later this week to take RHP Alex Cobb's turn in the rotation. Cobb was released from the hospital Sunday, having suffered a mild concussion while getting struck by a line drive Saturday. He's on the 7-day concussion disabled list, but there's no timeline for his return.
