Rangers optioned 2B Rougned Odor to Triple-A Round Rock.
Odor was off to a horrible start this season for the Rangers, batting just .144/.252/.233 in 103 plate appearances. The hope was that he'd be ready to take a big step forward in 2015 after showing promise last season as a rookie, but he's only 21 years old so it's not like this is a death knell. Adam Rosales will serve as the Rangers' primary second baseman until Odor gets back on track. May 11 - 2:58 PM

Rougned Odor is not in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

It appears to be a matter of when, not if, Odor gets optioned to Triple-A at this point. He's now sat in favor of Adam Rosales five out of the last seven games. The 21-year-old is hitting just .144/.252/.233 and badly needs some time in the minors to iron things out.

Rougned Odor is not in the Rangers' lineup Friday.

It's just a day of rest for the struggling youngster. Adam Rosales is at second base Friday in Odor's place.

After sitting out Wednesday's game, Rougned Odor went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts on Thursday.

It's hardly surprising that the 21-year-old Odor has experienced growing pains, but a .144 average a month into the season just isn't very promising. He's still a fine bet for the long haul, but a stint in Triple-A is probably on the way. It probably would have happened already if the Rangers hadn't traded Luis Sardinas in the Yovani Gallardo deal. As is, they're probably looking at Tommy Field as the fallback to Odor.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman writes that Rougned Odor is a candidate for a demotion.

It's unclear whether Heyman is just speculating or has inside information, but it wouldn't be surprising if the possibility is on the table. The 21-year-old has struggled to the tune of a .146/.263/.244 batting line across his first 25 games this season. He was rushed to the majors out of need last year, so some more seasoning in the minors might not be the worst thing for him.

Rougned Odor is not in the Rangers' lineup Monday.

It looks like a routine day off. Adam Rosales is at second base in Odor's place.
May 4 - 4:39 PM

Rougned Odor went 0-for-4 as the Rangers' No. 2 hitter in Wednesday's loss.

Odor has mostly hit in the bottom third of the order, but he's made three starts hitting first or second and gone 1-for-11 with a walk. He'd be a better bet in fantasy leagues if he could claim the two hole for himself, but that .147 average isn't getting it done.
Apr 29 - 11:26 PM

Rougned Odor went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Saturday, dropping his average to .158.

Odor's .158 average hardly stands out among Rangers regulars, so he's not in any danger of losing playing time. The team's offense certainly isn't great, but it can't be this bad, and Odor still projects as a contributor in mixed leagues.
Apr 19 - 1:13 AM

Rougned Odor filled the box score Tuesday, collecting an RBI double, stealing a base and scoring a run in a win over the Angels.

Promoted to the leadoff spot Tuesday, Odor responded by acting like a leadoff man. He led off the game with a walk, stole second base -- his first steal of the season -- and scored on a Mitch Moreland single. He then hit an RBI double in the second inning. It's been a slow start for Odor and the Rangers offense, but the 21-year-old is only getting better and should put up some helpful numbers if he can stick atop the lineup.
Apr 14 - 11:54 PM

Rougned Odor is batting leadoff for the Rangers on Tuesday night against the Angels.

Leonys Martin has been bumped down to the eighth spot. Odor owns a weak .299 on-base percentage in 122 career major league games, but he's only 21 years old and has shown a little bit of early improvement in that department this season. He obviously carries more fantasy potential at the top of the Texas lineup.
Apr 14 - 4:54 PM

Rougned Odor was removed from Sunday's Cactus League game against the Dodgers with a bruised shin.

Odor appeared to get spiked as Adrian Gonzalez slid into second base on his fourth inning double. The Rangers have listed him as day-to-day, so the minor injury shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the regular season.
Mar 29 - 6:03 PM

Rougned Odor will miss Monday's game because he'll undergo a root canal.

He'll be back in game action in a couple days. Odor has six hits in his first 15 at-bats this spring.
Mar 15 - 12:18 PM

Rougned Odor slugged a solo home run in one of his two at-bats in Monday's victory over the Athletics.

Odor is off to a good start, batting .364 (4-for-11). The 21-year-old is coming off of a solid showing in his rookie campaign last year -- logging 30 extra-base hits in 417 plate appearances -- and will start everyday at second base.
Mar 9 - 7:22 PM

Rougned Odor went 3-for-3 with a double in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Brewers.

The second baseman was hitless in four at-bats to start the spring. Odor, 21, held his own as a rookie, batting .259/.297/.402 with nine homers and four steals in 114 games. Now the Rangers' starter at the keystone, it should be an even bigger sophomore season for Odor.
Mar 7 - 6:32 PM

Rougned Odor has been deemed untouchable by the Rangers, per Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

The Rangers are expressing strong interest in some of the Nationals' starting pitching depth, but Washington asked for Odor and the response was a firm "no." Odor, 20, hit .259/.297/.402 with nine home runs and 48 RBI in 114 games this past season as a rookie. He appears to be entrenched as the Rangers' starting second baseman.
