      Rangers' Rougned Odor: Picks up in camp

      Rougned Odor is 6-for-12 with a double, two home runs and two walks over six simulated and intrasquad games, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.Ever since last September when Texas management informed Odor he needs to change his plate approach, the second baseman has responded. He finished the 2019 season hitting .263/.340/.632 with nine homers and 26 RBI over the final 26 games. Odor followed up in spring training, going 11-for-31 with two homers and nine RBI in 12 Cactus League games. Despite the success he's achieved since September, Odor will not be given much leeway if he goes through a prolonged slump in 2020.

      Rangers' Rougned Odor: On short leash

      Rougned Odor will get less slack if he struggles in the restructured season, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.Odor is notorious for long stretches of futility, but Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward has given the second baseman the time to work through his issues. That changed last September when he was put on notice that his job was in jeopardy if he didn't change his approach. To Odor's credit, he responded with a monster finish to 2019. That hitting continued during spring training before the season was paused, but the luxury of a long leash is not something he'll have in 2020. If Odor slumps, Woodward may replace him with Nick Solak, a hitter looking for a home defensively.

      Rangers' Rougned Odor: Bops second spring HR

      Rougned 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 Texas 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).

      Rangers' Rougned Odor: Strong start to spring

      Rougned 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 Texas 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'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.

      Rangers' Rougned Odor: Hits double figures in steals

      Rougned Odor went hitless in two at-bats but walked twice and stole two bases Tuesday in the Texas Rangers' 5-3 loss to the Rays in 11 innings.The pair of steals brings Odor's total up to 10 for the season, marking the fourth straight year in which he's hit double figures in the category. Odor's running hasn't come with much efficiency -- he's been thrown out eight times -- but his contributions in that area have been welcome with stolen bases becoming more and more rare in today's game.
