Odor went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 7-3 win over the Cardinals. His second-inning shot off Miles Mikolas was the big blow in a seven-run frame that chased the St. Louis starter from the game. Odor carries a weak .170/.244/.366 slash line through 29 games with six homers and 17 RBI, but half of his long balls have come in the last two contests.
Odor went 3-for-5 with two home runs, one walk, four RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Royals. Odor hit his home runs in each of the final two frames, the first off Ian Kennedy and second against Chris Owings. He now has five home runs on the season, four of which have come since May 5. While he continues to strike out a prolific rate -- he's whiffed 16 times in 46 at-bats this month -- his average has increased from .122 to .167 in his past 10 games.
Odor went 2-for-3 with a walk, two doubles and two runs scored in Tuesday's 11-5 loss to the Royals. Odor, who returned from a two-day break, showed some life in a bat that was 6-for-53 (.113) since he returned from the injured list in late April. The Rangers are puzzled by his early-season struggles, with manager Chris Woodward hinting at a minor-league option. "It's a really tough thing he's going through. I don't know what the future holds, but we'll cross that bridge when and if we feel like we have to. It's a tough one for me, but at some point, if there are no results, you have to make decisions, tough ones, I don't know if we are at that point, but it's something we have to think about, talk about," Woodward told Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News.
Odor will be out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale at Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Odor went 1-for-4 with a stolen base, a run and three strikeouts in Saturday's loss, and he also made an error. The Rangers have a scheduled off day Monday, so the 25-year-old should get two full days to clear his head. Odor is 4-for-38 with 17 strikeouts over his last 10 games.
Odor went 1-for-4 with a walk, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 9-6 win over Pittsburgh. Odor's two-run jack was part of the Rangers' three-run ninth inning that completed their comeback from a 6-2 deficit over the final two innings. The second baseman is hitting just .141 but has popped homers in two of his last three games.
