The Odor Exhibition
As you can see, Rougned Odor is in both lineups. Don’t think Odor is a shoe-in for everyday playing time, however. The emergence of Kiner-Falefa and the impression that Profar has made this season place some pressure on Odor. There are plenty of lineup combinations available that can exclude Odor, as we’ve seen lately.
Second base will be Rougned Odor’s to lose, but his leash is shorter than usual. An adjustment could be made over the next couple of weeks if Odor struggles, particularly against left-handed pitchers. Ultimately, his return makes the offense deeper—a luxury that not a single Texas Rangers player or coach will take for granted.
There you have it! Your Rougned Odor-adjusted lineups. We’ll do this again once Elvis Andrus returns to the Texas Rangers and adds to the infield surplus.
