It's a good thing the Tampa Bay Rays have tons of pitching depth.

The club has lost a key member of its rotation, placing right-hander Jake Odorizzi on the 10-day disabled list with a hamstring injury, the Rays announced.

The 27-year-old left his start against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday in the second inning after throwing only 18 pitches. He was greeted by trainers and attempted to test the leg on the mound, but was replaced by Erasmo Ramirez shortly after.

Odorizzi has been an effective and durable arm in the Rays' rotation since 2014, averaging 31 starts per season, including a combined 3.72 ERA and 1.20 WHIP, while striking out 8.4 batters per nine innings.
