Report: Veteran starter Odorizzi draws interest from Giants originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Giants’ search for starting pitching appears to be ongoing, as the organization is among the teams expressing interest in free agent Jake Odorizzi, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reported Friday morning citing sources.
Free agent Jake Odorizzi, an All-Star in 2019, continues to draw interest from multiple @MLB teams. The #Angels, #SFGiants, #BlueJays, #Twins, and #RedSox are among the clubs with interest, sources confirm, as I just mentioned on @MLBNetwork. #HotStove

Odorizzi battled injuries that limited him to just four starts in 2020, but went 15-7 and was named an All-Star in 2019, finishing with a 3.51 ERA over 159 innings.
The 30-year-old could be a nice addition to a Giants rotation that recently signed southpaw Alex Wood.
Odorizzi likely won’t be a cheap commodity, especially with so many teams showing interest.
Given that Odorizzi has spent the entirety of his career in the American League, perhaps he’d be intrigued by the pitching paradise that is Oracle Park.
