"You can't be not pleased with [Odor], that goes without saying," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "Obviously, we look to Rougie to be a force in the lineup. It's something that he did in the second half for us."
Odor struggled at the plate in the early going this season, hitting .205 in his first 12 games. But the 22-year-old infielder has busted out of late and raised his batting average to .287.
Skepticism has surrounded Odor since his second-half breakout in 2015, when he hit .292 with 15 home runs after being called up in mid-June. But he has exceeded expectations, giving the Rangers a five-tool player at the top of their lineup.
