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

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.
