Rangers Odor named AL player of week
ARLINGTON, Texas – Texas second baseman Rougned Odor was tabbed the American League player of the week after batting .385 with three home runs, eight RBI and nine runs scored in six games.
Odor is the first Rangers’ player to win the honor since Kevin Kouzmanoff nabbed the honor last April.
"I feel amazing," Odor said. "I’ve been really working hard every day. I feel really good."
Odor led all AL players in runs scored last week and his seven extra-base hits were tied for the most in the league. He also had 24 total bases and is now hitting .367 since coming back from Round Rock.
"I just worked hard to get back here and work on everything, my hitting approach and my defensive approach," Odor said. "Everything I did over there I’m doing here and it’s been amazing."
