    Description: Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor went 1-for-4 with a grand slam Wednesday at Seattle.
    Insight: The 20-year-old Odor was called up from Double-A out of necessity due to the failure of Josh Wilson and Donnie Murphy to fill in after Jurickson Profar's injury and he probably wasn't ready for the big leagues. Odor has batted .248 with six homers, 32 RBI, 26 runs and two steals in 290 at-bats.

    Description: Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor (shoulder) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins.
    Insight: Odor left Sunday's game with a sprained right shoulder, but his MRI revealed no structural damage.
     
    6/9/2014 6:06:00 PM
    Description: Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor's MRI revealed no structural damage in his right shoulder, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
    Insight: Odor left Sunday's game with a sprained right shoulder, but the Rangers received good news for a change. Texas has possibly had more injuries than any other team this season, especially to the right side of the infield. Prince Fielder and Jurickson Profar are likely done for the season and the team announced Sunday that Mitch Moreland will need ankle surgery.
     
    6/8/2014 5:02:00 PM
    Description: Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor exited Sunday's game with an injury, according to Richard Durrett of espndallas.com.
    Insight: The Rangers have possibly had more injuries than any other team this season, especially to the right side of the infield. Prince Fielder and Jurickson Profar are likely done for the season and the team announced Sunday that Mitch Moreland will miss three months due to ankle surgery. Odor appeared to suffer an injury while diving back to first on a pickoff move.
     
    5/24/2014 8:40:00 PM
    Description: Texas 2B Rougned Odor blasted four hits Saturday in a victory over Detroit.
    Insight: The five RBI Odor registered on Saturday were a career-high. With Jurickson Profar encountering another setback in his recovery from shoulder surgery, Odor looks to be the Rangers' starting second baseman for the forseeable future.
     
    5/18/2014 2:28:00 PM
    Description: Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has been scratched from Sunday's lineup due to a sore right wrist, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
    Insight: Odor has gone 5-for-25 (.200) with a homer and two RBI while getting caught stealing twice in nine games since the Rangers called him up directly from Double-A.
     
    5/8/2014 4:32:00 PM
    Description: The Rangers have called up infield prospect Rougned Odor from Double-A Frisco.
    Insight: Odor has hit .279 with six homers, 17 RBI and six steals in 32 games this season. MLB.com ranks the 20-year-old as the No. 54 prospect in baseball. He's expected to start at second base with Donnie Murphy going to the DL.
