2. Tommy Field
When the Rangers demoted Rougned Odor, there were several players the team had in mind that could step in and replace him. One of these players was Tommy Field who started off strong with two home runs in his first week. In the past week, however, Field has not gotten a hit in 11 at-bats and has struck out six times.
Including Field, the Rangers have had four players play second base this season with the most successful so far being Adam Rosales hitting .225/.295/.400 in 13 games. Odor started at second base for 25 games but hit just .136/.248/.227 after a successful rookie 2014 season in which he hit .259/.297/.402 with nine home runs.
Since being sent down, Odor has hit .309/.397/.691 in 16 games and could be close to making his comeback to the majors. Since this piece was started, Field was designated for assignment to make room for Gonzalez tonight.
