Tommy Field's emergence could keep Rougned Odor in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has done well since his demotion to Triple-A Round Rock, batting .281 with three home runs and nine RBI in nine games.

However, despite his success, his recall might not be so quick since Tommy Field has provided stability at second base for Texas, according to manager Jeff Banister.

"If you give a guy like that a timeline and he hasn't met expectations, and the timeline passes, I don't think that's appropriate," Banister said of Odor, per MLB.com. "We told Rougned to focus on defense, turn the double play especially, get the hands and feet together. On offense, stay aggressive, swing at pitches you can hit. You're not going to eliminate chasing [bad pitches], but slow it down and control the strike zone. Get back to using left and center field.

"Go back to being that gritty type of player that other teams don't like, but players on your team love. Have that edge that everybody said he had. He needs to focus on being a minor-league player trying to get back to the big leagues. That's what will get him that edge."

Field has hit .267 with one double, two home runs and five RBI in 10 games since his promotion from Double-A. But it seems Banister is really happy with his effort in the field.

"He has stabilized us defensively and given us some pretty good hits in key situations," Banister said. "His at-bats have been calm. He has been stabilizing in a spot where we needed somebody to step up and play well."


Rangers' Rougned Odor on demotion: 'I didn't feel like me'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor told reporters he was not upset about his demotion to Triple-A Round Rock, but did admit he wasn't himself at the plate this season, per the Dallas Morning News.

"I was swinging at a lot of bad pitches, I know that," Odor said. "I was not like me. I didn't feel like me. I wasn't hitting good. I kind of knew they might [demote him]. They sent me down and now I'm going to work. I don't want to get mad because if I do, I'll block myself from getting better."

Odor hit .144/.252/.233 with one home run, nine RBI and one stolen base in 90 at-bats this season at the time of his demotion.


Rangers option Rougned Odor after losing playing time to Rosales


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) The Rangers have optioned second baseman Rougned Odor, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

The Dallas Morning News reported previously that Odor was on the verge of a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock. He has hit just .144/.252/.233 with one home run, nine RBI and one stolen base in 90 at-bats and has been out of the starting lineup for three straight games.

"Rougned definitely will be part of a winning formula in Arlington," manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "We felt it was time for Rougned to go down and get back to being the type of player that got him here: gritty, gutty, tough at-bats, play routine defense, play with his hair on fire all over the place.

"He is not unlike a lot of players who came up at a young age, had an amount of success, then the major-league atmosphere, major-league players, threw a punch at them. He needs to go down, get re-connected to the player he was, come back better and more capable of throwing a counter punch."

With Odor heading to Triple-A, Adam Rosales could see more playing time at second base moving forward. Rosales has started four of the last five games at second base but has hit just .167/.222/.310 in 42 at-bats.

In a corresponding move, the Rangers have purchased the contract of infielder Thomas Field from Round Rock. He has hit .298/.373/.538 with five home runs and 13 RBI in 104 Triple-A at-bats and is in the starting lineup Monday.


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor stirring up too much breeze


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) A propensity to swing and miss has Rangers 21-year-old second baseman Rougned Odor on the verge of a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock as early as Monday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Odor is batting .144 on the year and has just seven hits in his last 58 at-bats. He has been benched in three of the last five games.

The reason is poor discipline at the plate. He has swung at 90 percent of 254 pitches outside the strike zone, per Brooksbaseball.net. He has missed on 36 percent of those attempts. In 2014, he swung on just 24 percent of pitches off the plate and whiffed on 23.5 percent of them.

It's no wonder he has 25 strikeouts in 90 at-bats and seems destined for regular playing time in the minors.


Rangers getting closer to decision on 2B Rougned Odor


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) The Rangers are still undecided on what to do with second baseman Rougned Odor, according to the Dallas Morning News.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Slumping Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor was held out of the lineup again Sunday. Adam Rosales replaced him at second base for the third straight game. 

Odor has started once in the last five games and twice in the last seven, after starting 23 of the season's first 24 games. He's hitting .144 with 25 strikeouts in 90 at bats. 


CF Leonys Martin (wrist) returns, hits seventh in Rangers' lineup Saturday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/9/2015) Leonys Martin (wrist) is back in the starting lineup for the Rangers Saturday, playing center field and batting seventh.

Martin had injured his wrist while attempting a diving catch in a game and has been out since May 5.

Martin had batted leadoff for the Rangers prior to his injury but right fielder Shin-Soo Choo will remain hitting first for Saturday's game.

Martin was hitting .221 before the injury, with five doubles and six stolen bases in 25 games.

In addition, Adam Rosales will get his second consecutive start at second base in place of the slumping Rougned Odor(3 for his last 30).


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor sits for third time in five games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor was held out of the starting lineup for the third time in five games Friday against the Rays. Adam Rosales started at second base again in Odor's absence.

Odor is off to a rough start offensively in 2015, and his struggles in the first month have followed him into May. He is batting .136 (3 for 22) through seven May games (five starts).


Rangers' Rougned Odor, Carlos Corporan out of the lineup


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor and catcher Carlos Corporan are out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Astros, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Odor got the start Tuesday after getting a breather Monday to work on some things with his approach at the plate. Adam Rosales will take his place at second.

Corporan and Robinson Chirinos have been alternating behind the plate over the last few games. Texas is currently the underdogs (+125) against Houston Wednesday.


Rangers' Rougned Odor working on approach at the plate


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor is trying to work out some of the kinks in his swing after starting off the year with a .146 average, according to MLB.com.

Odor returned to the lineup Tuesday after getting the day off Monday to work on some of the issues he's been having.

"We saw some things in the workout today that we liked in his bat path and direction," manager Jeff Banister said. "A very simple fundamental drill and it was an eye-opener for him. He could see the direction of his bat path was very pulled-oriented. He was able to work through the drill, go into the batting cage and put it in play."

Odor remains confident in his swing despite the struggles.

"I feel like I'm a little late and missing my pitch," Odor said. "My confidence is good, I always have confidence."


Rangers make multiple adjustments to starting lineup


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) The Rangers reshuffled their lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros, slotting Carlos Corporan at catcher, Carlos Peguero in left field, Delino DeShields in center and Rougned Odor at second base, according to MLB.com.

All four were out of the lineup Monday. DeShields replaces Leonys Martin in center after Martin suffered a sprained left wrist trying to make a diving catch. The Rangers are currently the underdogs (+145) against Houston. 


Rangers' Rougned Odor out of the lineup Monday, may be optioned


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor is out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Astros with Adam Rosales taking his place and batting sixth, the team announced.

Odor has started the last seven games in a row at second, but general manager Jon Daniels is considering a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Daniels is preaching for his position players to step up and Odor is one of them. He is hitting just .148 with nine RBI in 81 at-bats this season.

"We believe he is part of the solution, not part of the problem," Daniels said to the Dallas Morning News. "He is working on some things. We're looking for some improvement."

The Rangers are currently the underdogs (+200) against Houston.


Slumping 2B Rougned Odor may be demoted


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) With the Rangers floundering with the worst record in the American League, General Manager Jon Daniels said that the team will make some "smaller changes" this week, per the Dallas Morning News

One of the trouble spots the Rangers may address is second base, where Rougned Odor is slumping badly, with only six hits in his last 49 at-bats. The Rangers may decide to let him work out his swing in the minors. 

"He's still learning," manager Jeff Banister said of Odor. "There are going to be growing pains. He was aggressive. He got himself in a hole a couple of times. Then you are facing the pitcher’s [choice of] pitches. It makes it tougher."


Rougned Odor misses first start of season for Rangers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor was held out of the starting lineup for the first time this season on Saturday.

The Rangers are +145 money line underdogs at the Angels.  


Banister: Leonys Martin will remain the Rangers' leadoff hitter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Leonys Martin will remain the Rangers' leadoff hitter over Rougned Odor, despite his early season struggles, manager Jeff Banister said, per the Dallas Morning News.

On Tuesday, Bannister tweaked the lineup, moving Odor to the leadoff spot and sliding Martin to the No. 8 spot.

"Leonys is going to be our lead-off hitter," Banister said. "That structure has been a little inconsistent. More than anything else, I wanted to give it a different look. There are times when you give the lineup a different look."

Odor doubled in a run in the second inning, stole a base and scored a run to help his club secure an 8-2 win over the Angels on Tuesday. Odor has a hit in all but one of his last six games. He is hitting .172 (5 for 29) with three doubles, a home run and four RBI.

"I feel happy," Odor said. "I helped my team."

Martin reached base twice on Tuesday and is hitting .154 (5 for 39) with two RBI in nine games.


Rangers move Odor, Moreland to top of lineup


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has been moved to the leadoff spot for Tuesday's game against the Angels.

Odor has batted in the bottom third of the lineup in each of the team's first eight games, hitting .160/.323/.360 in 31 at-bats. He said his approach will stay the same in the leadoff spot, FOX Sports Southwest reports.

Center fielder Leonys Martin, who has also struggled early, has been moved to the No. 8 spot.

"Leonys is going to be our lead-off hitter," manager Jeff Banister said, per the Dallas Morning News. "That structure has been a little inconsistent. More than anything else, I wanted to give it a different look. There are times when you give the lineup a different look."

In addition, designated hitter Mitch Moreland will bat second Tuesday. He has yet to bat higher than fifth this season while hitting .217/.321/.435 in 23 at-bats.

The Rangers are home underdogs (+104) against the Angels Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Odor entered the game 0 for 8 with three strikeouts, and it looked to be another mediocre day for the second baseman before he delivered an eighth-inning home run, which was the team's fourth homer of the day.

Rangers' Banister: Rougned Odor controlling strike zone better


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Rangers manager Jeff Bainster spoke Tuesday about the improvements second baseman Rougned Odor has made at the plate, MLB.com reports.

"He looks like he is doing a better job of controlling the strike zone," Banister said. "He looks like he can swing the bat and he's got some raw power. He hangs in there against left-handers. I think eventually if he is not one of the top of the order guys, he could be in an RBI slot as an offensive second baseman. His power sneaks up on you."

Odor is 7 for 20 with two doubles and one home run in nine games this spring.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) The Rangers are receiving a lot of interest in their middle infielders, including Jurickson Profar, according to MLB.com. Many clubs are showing heavy interest in Rougned Odor, but the Rangers aren't shopping him.

The 21-year-old Profar missed the 2014 season due to a shoulder injury. However, he was considered the top propsect in baseball in 2013 by multiple outlets.

Odor didn't quite make it as high in the prospect rankings as Profar, but the 20-year-old infielder was considered a top-100 prospect in 2014 by Baseball America (No. 42) and MLB.com (No. 59). Odor hit .259 with seven triples, nine home runs, 14 doubles and 48 RBI in 114 games as a rookie last season.
