The Rays have officially announced that Jake Odorizzi will be Monday's starter against the Blue Jays.

The move won't be made official until Sunday, but the Rays have confirmed what was suspected since David Price (triceps) went on the disabled list. The Blue Jays are not a very pitcher-friendly opponent, but Odorizzi is talented enough to warrant a roster spot in deeper mixed leagues. The 23-year-old right-hander has a 3.83 ERA and 47/15 K/BB ratio in 44 2/3 innings this season at Triple-A Durham.
