The Twins acquired righthander Jake Odorizzi from the Rays on Saturday night. He also headed to the Kansas City Royals as part of the package for Zack Greinke in 2010 and was dealt to the Rays in 2012 as part of the haul for Wade Davis and James Shields.
He might not be the starting pitcher from the Rays that many Twins fans were dreaming of as that was Chris Archer, but Odorizzi was 10-8 a year ago and can bring some more stability to the Twins staff. His nine-inning walk rate, however, jumped from 2.6 to 3.8 last season, and his fielding-independent ERA was a career-worst 5.43. These moves come off the heels of the news that Minnesota would be without its top starter, Ervin Santana, to start the season due to surgery on his finger.
The Rays, meanwhile, traded Odorizzi shortly after designating outfielder Corey Dickerson - the team's leading returning hitter as measured by OPS - for assignment.
