Odor went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's spring game against the Rockies. Odor continues to mash in the Cactus League, batting .368 with four extra-base hits and a team-high nine RBI. The strong September finish in 2019 has carried over to 2020. His 20 spring plate appearances are among the team leaders, which is odd for an established player at this time of training camp, but it indicates the Rangers are serious to have him establish a consistent plate approach after he batted just .205 last season. It was his second time in three seasons with an average just above the Mendoza Line (.200).
Odor went 3-for-3 with a home run, a double and four RBI in Thursday's win over the Cubs. Odor is off to a flying start this spring, going 5-for-9 with six RBI in three spring games. The Rangers' second baseman feels the work he put in at the end of last season and during the offseason has continued to pay off in spring training. Odor, who teetered on losing his full-time job at times in 2019, posted a .984 OPS with nine home runs in 24 games during September last year. Still, the Rangers have seen similar bursts out of Odor, and they have not sustained over longer stretches.
Odor went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, a two-RBI double, a stolen base and a walk in Saturday's 9-4 win over the Yankees. Odor recorded both his 30th homer and 30th double of the season, and drove in six of the Rangers' nine runs in the game. The second baseman is slashing only .204/.281/.439 this year, but he's tallied a career-high 93 RBI and added 76 runs scored while stealing 11 bases in 20 tries.
Odor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Red Sox. Odor capped off the Rangers' rally Thursday with a solo home run in the seventh inning, his 29th long ball of the season. While still striking out at a 30.6 percent rate, Odor now has a .231 ISO to match his career-best mark from the 2016 campaign. He's flashed plenty of power of late, recording five extra-base hits across his last 10 starts.
Odor went 1-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, two walks and a second run scored in Tuesday's 12-10 loss to the Red Sox. Odor popped his 28th homer during a game in which the Rangers played catch-up all night after going down by four runs in the top of the first inning. The second baseman, who continues to flirt with a .200 batting average, has picked the right time for his best hitting month. Odor's .954 OPS during September qualifies as a high-water mark for him this season and leaves a positive impression as the Rangers evaluate him for an everyday job in 2020.
