Latest Update Rougned Odor hits fifth home run Fri Aug, 15, 04:46 AM
Is an exciting offensive player with both good power and speed. Profiles as a top table-setter who can distract pitchers and provide instant offense. Makes good contact.
Flaws: : Doesn't walk enough, so he needs to become more patient in order to maximize his top-of-the-order skills. Also, he must become a more efficient runner on the bases.
Odor is now slashing .259/.297/.390 with five home runs and 26 RBI in his rookie campaign while filling in at second base for Jurickson Profar. Although he will likely lose his starting gig once Profar in healthy enough to return for the 2015 season, Odor has done enough to at least remain in the big leagues next year, even if in a bench role, but has limited fantasy value moving forward.

Odor's .261/.300/.384 slash line with four home runs and 25 RBI over 245 at-bats are hardly flashy, but few people recognize the fact that this kid was thrown into the deep end of the pool and told to sink or swim without a single at-bat above the Double-A level ad a team of struggling over-priced veterans surrounding him. He's had his ups and downs, but he's managed to stay afloat and is probably giving the Rangers yet another reason not to automatically assume that Jurickson Profar will be their second baseman in the future. Odor is still just 20-years-old so there's still a lot of development to take place. He may not be fantasy gold right now, but he could be someone you continue to appreciate as time passes.

Odor has made nine-straight starts at second for the Rangers, so with lefty Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox on Wednesday, it's the perfect time to give the youngster a rest. Adam Rosales will handle the work at the keystone for Wednesday's action.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite a nice showing on Monday night, Odor is hitting just .241 with six RBI and four runs scored since returning from the All-Star break (54 AB), as he continues to get battle through his rookie season. He is now sitting on a .256 average with four home runs and 24 RBI through his first 223 career at-bats making him a AL-only consideration, at best, as the season progresses. Analyst: Matthew Beck
