Odor is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers. Odor is just 2-for-14 (.143) against lefty Matthew Boyd, Detroit's starter Wednesday, so he'll give way to Danny Santana at the keystone in this one.
Odor is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the White Sox. Logan Forsythe will handle duties at second base while Odor heads to the bench after starting each of the past 17 games. Odor came through with a solo home run in Friday's 5-4 loss, but he's still slashing a lowly .200/.286/.387 so far in June. That actually counts as an improvement from his season-long line, which sits at .174/.249/.348. With Odor showing few signs of meaningful improvement, manager Chris Woodward could decide to at least temporarily pull the plug on the 25-year-old as an everyday player.
Odor went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts Tuesday against the Indians. Odor took Zach Plesac deep in the fifth inning to record his ninth homer of the season. However, he also struck out on two occasions, making it four consecutive games in which he's whiffed multiple times. Though he has a poor .178/.256/.347 line through 243 plate appearances, Odor is a threat to post a 20-20 season, giving him some value in spite of his 31.7 percent strikeout rate.
Odor went 1-for-2 with three walks and a grand slam in Friday's 7-1 win over the Reds. He took Wily Peralta deep in the fifth inning to break open a 2-0 game. It's Odor's eighth homer of the year but first since May 20, and the second baseman continues to struggle with making consistent contact, slashing .182/.265/.345 over 55 games.
Odor went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, three RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 9-8 loss to Oakland. It was Odor's second three-hit performance of the season; his last happened May 16. Even with the big day Sunday, the 25-year-old owns an unsightly .177/.246/.333 slash line across 204 plate appearances.
