Due to oblique tightness the Tampa Bay Rays Jake Odorizzi has made it on the 15 day DL with what’s being called a left oblique strain. Luckily for the Rays, it is known that nothing is wrong with his arm and should be able to bounce back into the rotation.
Odorizzi now joins Alex Cobb and Matt Moore on the Rays growing disabled list. Cobb is out for the season due to elbow ligament replacement surgery and Moore is still out due to participating in rehab from his injury from last year.
It has not been finalized, but rumor has it that Odorizzi will not be playing for a few weeks due to the injury. He was set at a 4-5 record with a 2.47 ERA within 12 starts this season. It is said that Nathan Karns or Erasma Ramirez will replace him within the rotation in the next few starts for the pitcher.
Jumping onto the NL side of things, the St. Louis Cardinals left fielder, Matt Holliday, has also been placed on the 15 day disabled list due to a grade 2 quadriceps strain. Holliday was charging a fly ball in the 2nd inning in the lost game against the Colorado Rockies. He then went on to fall on his right knee and after a few minutes on the ground, he walked off the field.
Jon Jay is to replace him in the line up in Tuesdays game and also for the next couple weeks. With 3 home runs, hitting .303, 25 RBI in 52 games and not being out since July of 2013, he hopefully adjusts to not playing accordingly.
