Jake Odorizzi: 4-4, 4.21 ERA/1.25 WHIP

I’d take these numbers from Jake Odorizzi, assuming health and production from everyone else.  These projections show 50 appearances and six starts in 2021 for Odorizzi and that sounds like a lot for me. Given the Astros youth and injury history in the rotation, the six starts are reasonable, but 44 relief appearances seems like way too many.
