1. Rougned Odor
Odor hit .144/.252/.233 in his first 29 games before being sent down to Triple-A Round Rock. He returned on June 15 and has played in 21 games since then. In those 21 games, he has hit .370/.415/.589 and has been one of the best hitters on the time during that time. He has had nine extra base hits and has driven in 14 runs while scoring seven of his own. Odor has hit second in the lineup several times with the struggles of Choo and should provide a better spark at the top than Choo did.
This past week, Odor hit .389/.400/.722 with a three extra base hits and four RBI and scored four runs. Odor hit second in the order twice this week, going 2-for-8 with a run scored. He should stay in the two-hole as long as he can keep up his hot streak. With Fielder, Adrian Beltre, Moreland, and Hamilton following Odor in the lineup there is a chance they can be as efficient as they were in June.
