Right-hander Jake Odorizzi will begin his Major League rehab assignment at 6:05 pm. on Tuesday with a start for the Skeeters in Round Rock.

Valdez was originally scheduled to start Sunday, and Odorizzi on Monday, prior to the postponement of Sunday’s scheduled game in Round Rock due to inclement weather. The Skeeters and Express are scheduled to play a straight doubleheader on Monday with two seven-inning games.
