Rangers | Rougned Odor sent down

Mon, 11 May 2015 12:06:47 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor was sent down to the minor leagues Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known which minor league affiliate Odor will join, so owners should look for an update. Adam Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) likely will receive a majority of the starts at second base for the time being. Rosales is only hitting .167 so far this season and does not appear to be a great option on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Rougned Odor sitting again

Fri, 08 May 2015 14:01:40 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is not in the starting lineup against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, May 8. 2B Adam Rosales is batting eighth and playing second base Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Odor ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) is on the demotion brink, as he is currently hitting just .144 through 103 plate appearances. His seasonal ownership should be reserved to AL-only formats at this point. Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is worth a speculative add in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, however, FantasyScore players should aim higher. Rosales is 5-for-31 on the season, after all.

Rangers | Rougned Odor could be demoted

Mon, 04 May 2015 15:52:28 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor, who is being benched Monday, May 4, is a candidate to have multiple days off or be demoted to the minors. Odor is in a 6-for-49 slump and is batting only .148 on the year, which is the fifth lowest qualifying batting average in the American League. 2B Adam Rosales replaced Odor Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Steer clear of Odor in all fantasy formats, including at FantasyScore, for the time being. In shallow mixed leagues, don't feel the need to keep him on your roster. Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) figures to play second more often with Odor struggling, but he's a low-end outfield target in daily games. Consider Rosales in really deep AL-only leagues if you own Odor or are hurting at a middle infield spot.

Rangers | Rougned Odor not starting

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:12:35 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 4. 2B Adam Rosales is starting at second base and hitting sixth in the batting order against Houston Astros SP Dallas Keuchel.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid Rosales ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) in all daily games Monday night. Keuchel comes into the game with an ERA under 1.00 on the season.

Rangers | Rougned Odor sitting Saturday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 14:28:17 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is out of the lineup Saturday, April 25, against a left-handed starter. 2B Adam Rosales draws the start.

Fantasy Tip: Expect this to be a common theme for the left-handed hitting Odor. He's hitting .132 overall and is just 2-for-20 against lefties. At $2,500 (5.0% of your cap), he's not worth using on FantasyScore until his bat awakens. Rosales doesn't have much appeal either.

Rangers | Leonys Martin back to leadoff spot

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:10:18 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is back in the leadoff spot against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ Friday, April 17. 2B Rougned Odor is hitting ninth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is off to a slow start this year (.143, 6-for-42) for the Rangers and is more of a weak play at FantasyScore tonight against Happ. Martin hit only .250 with two of his seven home runs against southpaws in 2014 in 136 at-bats. Odor ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) also loses a bit of fantasy luster with his move all the way to the bottom of a struggling Texas order.

Rangers | Rougned Odor seeing more pitches

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:37:08 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor has been seeing more pitches per at-bat of late and spoiling more pitches with foul balls instead of putting them into play with soft contact. As a result, manager Jeff Banister has recently utilized Odor higher in the lineup with OF Leonys Martin struggling.

Fantasy Tip: Odor ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) doesn't project favorably as a leadoff hitter for the long term, but if he continues to bat near the top of the lineup, it is a huge value boost. Odor batted second Wednesday, April 15, which is a favorable spot for a player with his cap-friendly price. Odor should be viewed as an upside source of cap relief in favorable matchups.

Rangers | Leonys Martin dropped in order

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:11:59 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin was dropped from leadoff to eighth in the batting order Tuesday, April 14, but manager Jeff Bannister still views Martin as the team's leadoff hitter. Martin has just two hits in his first 26 at-bats of the year, and Bannister thought he needed a break. 2B Rougned Odor is serving as the leadoff hitter Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Because of Martin's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) slow start to the season, you may want to avoid him at FantasyScore tonight against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. A drop to the bottom of the batting order also makes him less attractive for fantasy owners tonight.

Rangers | Rougned Odor gets chance to cement job

Sun, 15 Feb 2015 21:07:34 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor will be given the chance to cement the job of everyday second baseman during spring training. 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) is making his way back from injury, and 2B Adam Rosales also provides depth at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Odor can be a useful FantasyScore option, as he showed at times last season. He can rack up extra-base hits in bunches and plenty of runs scored, too. However, if he flounders for a long period of time, and Profar gets back to 100 percent, it wouldn't be surprising to see him take a backseat, either.
