Odor (oblique) went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Friday's 4-3 win over the Angels. Odor did not have a triumphant return to the lineup after missing a week with right oblique tightness. The 26-year-old is hitting .107 with 12 strikeouts in 32 plate appearances this season. Odor may need a couple more games as the designated hitter before returning to his usual second base assignment on defense.
Odor (oblique) will bat third as the designated hitter Friday against the Angels.

Odor (oblique) is not starting Thursday against the Athletics, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

The Rangers are confident Odor (oblique) can avoid a trip to the injured list, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Odor has missed the past three games with a right oblique issue, but the hope is that he can return by Thursday or Friday. If Odor misses more time, Nick Solak should continue to see time at second base.
Odor (oblique) is not in the lineup Wednesday at Oakland. The 26-year-old is dealing with a right oblique issue and hasn't seen game action since exiting Saturday's game. The team hopes Odor will be able to return Thursday or Friday, but if he remains unavailable he could end up on the injured list. Nick Solak receives another start at the keystone in his place.
