Rangers | Delino DeShields back in leadoff spot

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:20:12 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is batting first against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Wednesday, April 27. Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is batting sixth Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Odor has been leading off the past three games, but facing a lefty, DeShields is setting the table again Wednesday. DeShields grabs a huge fantasy boost batting atop the lineup, whereas Odor's value doesn't significantly change outside of likely trading a few opportunities to score runs for RBI chances. Both are strong daily options against Sabathia Wednesday, too.

Rangers | Delino DeShields drops in lineup

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:22:15 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is batting ninth in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Monday, April 25. 2B Rougned Odor is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields remains relevant in all formats, but he'll lose value in daily fantasy leagues if he sticks at the bottom of the order. The move up the lineup can help Odor's fantasy value if this move lasts. He is batting .286 with one home run and three RBI over the last seven games and is an attractive starting option.

Rangers | Rougned Odor, Mitch Moreland out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:40:57 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday, April 21. 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at second base and hitting ninth, while OF Ryan Rua starts at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Against Keuchel, both Alberto and Rua shouldn't gain much traction in daily formats Thursday. Look elsewhere.

Rangers | Rougned Odor will not start

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 11:51:30 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver Sunday, April 10. SS Hanser Alberto will start at second base and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Alberto will see time at multiple positions this season but should only be used in AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Rougned Odor goes deep

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 05:26:02 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor went 1-for-4 with one home run and two RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, April 8. Odor hit four home runs against the Angels during the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Odor has only two hits so far this season, but owners should not worry about his production at this point. He will continue to receive regular playing time and should be a starting option in most mixed leagues.

Rangers | Rougned Odor could hit leadoff

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 14:33:23 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor hit leadoff again in the spring game Wednesday, March 30, with OF Delino DeShields hitting second. Manager Jeff Bannister was non-committal when asked if Odor was a possibility to hit leadoff when the season started. Odor finished the Cactus League hitting .385 with four home runs and 11 RBI, but he has only 11 games of experience at leadoff in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers have options at the top of the lineup, and either way, Odor's power-speed combination make him an intriguing fantasy second base option once the bigger names come off the board. A permanent spot at leadoff would hurt his chances of driving in runs, but it shouldn't negatively affect his value in any way.

Rangers | Rougned Odor tables extension talks

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 10:03:11 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor and the Rangers have tabled contract extension talks after the two parties had discussions about a long-term deal.

Fantasy Tip: Odor is one of the top options at the keystone for fantasy owners if you're targeting more power from the position. He had 16 bombs in 426 at-bats last year and was successful against lefties, too.

Rangers | Rougned Odor returns in minors games

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 10:06:44 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (oblique) played in two minor league games Thursday, March 17, and combined to go 2-for-4 with a double. He was lifted for a pinch runner both times, but says he now feels 100% and expects to be back in the regular lineup soon.

Fantasy Tip: Good news for Odor, who looks like he'll be fine for when the season begins in a couple of weeks. The 22-year-old is coming off a very solid sophomore campaign, in which he hit .261/.316/.465 with 16 home runs and 61 RBI in 120 ballgames. If he can stay healthy over a full season, he has high-ceiling potential relative to most second basemen, which could potentially make him a very nice bargain in the latter half of drafts.

Rangers | Rougned Odor nursing oblique

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 22:40:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (oblique) missed the Cactus League spring game Monday, March 14, against the Cleveland Indians due to a strained right oblique. He will be evaluated before another round of batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: Odor is slowly making progress and should be back in the lineup sooner rather than later, barring a setback. He showed some nice pop from the middle infield for fantasy owners, and will be a solid middle- to late-round fantasy option in most formats in 2016.

Rangers | Rougned Odor takes batting practice

Sun, 13 Mar 2016 13:29:31 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (oblique) took batting practice in batting cages Sunday, March 13, and did not report any problems. He is scheduled to take live batting practice Monday, March 14.

Fantasy Tip: Odor is making progress in his recovery and likely will be able to play in a game in the near future. Odor should have a starting job this season and is coming off a 2015 season where he posted a .261 batting average with 16 home runs and 61 RBI. Odor should be a middle- to late-round option in most mixed leagues.
