Rangers 2B Rougned Odor gets two hits, RBI in win over Orioles


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor went 2 for 5 with a double and a RBI in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

Odor provided his team with an insurance run when he singled home a run in the top of the ninth inning and put them up 2-0.

Over his last six games, Odor is hitting .458 with 11 hits, three doubles and three RBI.


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor gets a day off Wednesday vs. Orioles


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/1/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor is out of the lineup for Wednesday's clash with the Orioles. Odor had started each of the last eight games for the Rangers, and has been on quite a roll.

In those eight games, Odor was batting .387 (12 for 31) with two home runs, three doubles and just three strikeouts with five walks. But he underwent a minor dental procedure on Wednesday, which is at least partially the cause for his absence from the lineup, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Hanser Alberto will get the start at second base on Wednesday.


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor remains on roll with three-hit Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) If Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor had scored a run or driven one in Sunday, perhaps his team would have beaten the Blue Jays.

But Odor can't be blamed. He slammed three hits, including a double, in five at-bats and even stole his fifth base of the season to stay hot.

His second three-hit game in less than a week gave Odor six hits in his last 11 at-bats. His batting average has peaked at .219.


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor homers, records two RBI in win


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor went 2 for 3 in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays.

Odor slammed his third home run of the season with a solo shot to right field in the seventh inning. He originally set the scoring off in the game with a sacrifice fly in the second inning.

Over his last 11 games, Odor is hitting .364 with 12 hits, two home runs and nine RBI.


Rangers' Rougned Odor blasts homer, goes 3 for 4 in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Rangers infielder Rougned Odor hit his second home run of the season in Tuesday night's 8-6 loss to the Athletics. 

Odor finished the game 3 for 4, having an outstanding day from the plate. In addition to the two-run homer he hit, Odor also collected a single and a double. Since re-joining the Rangers on June 15, Odor is hitting .474 in the seven games he's appeared in. 

For the season, Odor has a .202/.298/.312 slash line. 


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor hot hitter despite limited playing time


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Rangers second-year second baseman Rougned Odor was promoted from Triple-A Round Rock on June 15. He went 3-for-3 with two RBI in his first game back. But he has started just three of six games since.

Odor is sharing time with Hanser Alberto and Adam Rosales. Yet he is certainly hitting better than he did the first time around with Texas this season. He is batting .400 (6-for-15) in his return after leaving with a sluggish slash line of .144/.252/.233.

He has played in two of the three games he didn't start since coming back. He singled in a reserve role Sunday.


Rangers 2B Rougned Odor collects three hits in Monday's win


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor went 3 for 3 at the plate to help lead the Rangers to a 4-1 win over the Dodgers on Monday.

Odor also drove in two runs during the game. Monday's contest was his first game back since being called up from the minors. He was hitting .144 in 29 games this season prior to Monday's win.

"How about the young man coming back, first night, with three hits?" Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "But more importantly, the big one. Something that we didn't see him do the first go-around in driving through that [opposite field] and staying on the ball well.

"Tremendous job by our development people working with this kid. To get him back up here, night one, you just see the adjustments, and it paid off for us."


Rangers call up Rougned Odor


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) The Rangers called infielder Rougned Odor up from Triple-A, the team announced on Monday.

Odor was sent down earlier in the year, after hitting .144 in his first 29 games. He found his stroke at Triple-A Round Rock, where he was hitting .352 with five home runs and 19 RBI. 

Odor is in Monday's lineup at second base. 


Delino DeShields not in Rangers lineup on Monday


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/15/2015) Rangers left fielder Delino DeShields in not in Monday's lineup. DeShields left Sunday's game with a hamstring injury and will miss his first start in 10 games on Monday. 

The Rangers did some position shuffling in DeShields' absence. Joey Gallo, who had been playing third base, moves to left field. Gallo hasn't played left in MLB, and his minor league experience there consists of six games earlier this season at Double-A.

Replacing Gallo at third is Hanser Alberto, who moves over from second base. Rougned Odor , just called up on Sunday, plays second.


Rangers call up prospect Rougned Odor


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) The Rangers called up second baseman Rougned Odor from its Triple-A affilfate Sunday, reports CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Odor, 21, has 14 multi-games this season while playing in 29 games at Triple-A.


2B Rougned Odor raking at Round Rock


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Premier prospect and second baseman Rougned Odor, who was banished by the Rangers to Triple-A Round Rock on May 11, could be returning soon. He has found himself at the plate.

Odor went down with a .144 batting average. But he has been tearing it up lately for the Express with a six-game hitting streak, which includes five multi-hit performances, four doubles and a triple. He has raised his batting average to .349 and cut down his strikeouts markedly. He has fanned just seven times in 98 plate appearances after racking up 25 in 90 at-bats with Texas.

"He's made some really nice improvements offensively, keeping both hands on the bat, barreling the ball much better," Jeff Banister told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "He's not chasing as much; he's controlling the strike zone."


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.

Manager Jeff Banister said Sunday the team is moving closer to decision on Odor, who was benched for the third straight game. Odor is hitting just 7 for 58 to start the season.

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).

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
