  • Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Jake Odorizzi delivers during the first inning of a baseball game against the Cleveland Indians

Jake Odorizzi had an awesome 2019 season which included an All-Star nod and a trip to the postseason.

Pitcher Jake Odorizzi signed a qualifying offer with the Minnesota Twins Thursday. He can become a free agent again after the 2020 season, when there will be no loss of draft picks attached and fewer high-level starting pitchers competing for attention. Giants reliever Will Smith rejected a qualifying offer and agreed to a three-year, $40 million deal with Atlanta.

A native of Breese, IL, Odorizzi posted a 15-7 mark with an earned run average of 3.51 and a WHIP of 1.208 over 159.0 innings pitched in 30 starts. He set career highs for wins and strikeouts (178) as the Twins racked up 101 wins and claimed their first division title since 2010. His velocity jumped on all pitches, and the Twins had him work more with four-seam fastballs up and cutters down or down/glove-side, making his fastball a true out pitch for him.

Abreu recorded yet another strong season in 2019 with the Chicago White Sox, hitting.284 with 33 home runs and a league-leading 123 RBI.

The first domino in MLB's offseason pitching market has fallen.

Teams that sign a QO-rejecting free agent will have to give up at least one draft pick and some amount of worldwide bonus pool money as compensation.

Rather than test the market by opting out of his contract with the Yankees and giving up $30 million over the next two years, Aroldis Chapman amended his deal this month by adding an additional season and $18 million in guaranteed money.

A free agent can be made a qualifying offer only if he has been with the same team continuously since Opening Day and has never received a qualifying offer before. Until 2015, nobody has accepted a qualifying offer.
