BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Odor's hyper-aggressive approach led to an early demotion to Triple-A, and for some it was proof he had been rushed to the majors. He wasn't down at Round Rock for long, though, and returned with a better measure of the strike zone. In 367 plate appearances after his recall, Odor put up a .292/.334/.527 line with 15 home runs and a .235 ISO. The cherry was a strong showing in the ALDS, including a home run against the Blue Jays in a losing effort. He'll be 22 on Opening Day, and even in the unlikely event he doesn't improve he'll be one of the best keystoners in baseball. Even without walks, the ceiling is perennial All-Star.
2015 The 2014 season was supposed to be one of continued minor-league development for the 20-year-old Venezuelan infielder, but the Rangers got aggressive when Jurickson Profar went down in May. Odor stuck the whole season and showed glimpses of what made him the top prospect in the Rangers' system heading into the year. Many of the descriptors used on Odor—scrappy, plucky—are, for better or worse, affiliated with players who are lacking in talent, but don't let that fool you: He is a talented and supremely confident player, capable of hitting for a high average with surprising pop and above-average defense at the keystone. He's the kind of player Mariners, A's, Astros and Angels fans will grow to despise, yet respect.
2014 Odor had just turned 19 when the 2013 season started, and was the youngest player in the Carolina League on Opening Day, so it would have been understandable if he had been overmatched in High-A. But Odor continued to impress with his hit tool, his solid glove at second base and his hard-nosed attitude. One of the phrases you hear about Odor is that he plays "with a chip on his shoulder," and if he makes it to the majors, he will no doubt be one of those players who fans love and opposing fans absolutely despise. Like his double play partner Luis Sardinas, his path to the majors is currently blocked, but there will be teams lining up to acquire him if Texas makes him available.
2013 An overall polished game made 19-year-old second baseman Rougned Odor a success in full-season ball last year, and he could begin to fly through the system in 2013.
2012 As a player who more than held his own in the Northwest league as a 17-year old, Venezuelan second baseman Rougned Odor has the combination of polish and promise to make him one of the top infield prospects in the system.

DateQuestionAnswer
2015-07-23 17:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, Thanks for the chat. You guys at BP are the best!! Rougned Odor has been on a real tear since the end of his visit to Round Rock. While I recognize this is a small (but growing) sample size, do you think he has jumped meaningfully in AL 2B rankings?? Thanks for sharing your thoughts??
(DJ from Dallas)
Yes, he moves up quite a bit for me, even though as you point out I wouldn't overemphasize the SSS. He' definitely closing in on the top 10 2B and is in the top half if this isn't a blip. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-28 18:00:00 (link to chat)Mauricio, Thanks for the chat!! Rougned Odor has been on a real tear since being recalled. Assuming he's not going to continue to hit over 350, at what level should we expect him to perform going forward?? In your opinion, where does he rank with the rest of the AL 2B's?? Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
(DJ from Dallas)
The hit tool can carry him and he's definitely a top five AL 2B. I think you are looking at a guy who can maintain a high average here. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-06-30 19:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, thanks for the chat!! What's the story with Rougned Odor?? He seems to be a different guy after a few weeks at Round Rock. Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!
(DJ from Dallas)
He looks like a hitter who worked on his approach in the minors and is being somewhat smarter about his at bats. He has always had the talent and was very young for every level he has been at, and I honestly thought the adjustment period would last the entire season, with a breakthrough coming in 2016. I think Odor's legit. He is going to cool off to be sure but I think he can be on the bottom of the Top 10 at the position right now. (Mike Gianella)
2015-06-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Grade the dynasty trade: Rougned Odor and a second round pick for Robert Stephenson
(Grizz from Ch8)
Not super high on either player, but give me Odor and the pick pretty easily here. (Ben Carsley)
2015-06-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Ben, Thanks for the chat!! Is Rougned Odor going to be the real deal now that he's spent a few weeks in Round Rock, or was he just lucky last night (or both)?? Thanks for sharing your thoughts!!
(DJ from Dallas)
I think he's much better than he showed earlier this season, yeah, but I don't think he's a star. At 21 he's probably too young to be in the majors, and I don't think he's going to approach his top-10 fantasy 2B upside for another few years. (Ben Carsley)
2015-06-02 18:00:00 (link to chat)Should I trade away Jose De Leon to get Rougned Odor in a dynasty league?
(Lizzi from Fort Myers)
I personally would. As I stated previously I like what De Leon is doing but I still would go after Odor if that's the ask. (Mauricio Rubio)
2015-05-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, What are your thoughts about Rougned Odor? Thanks for sharing your outlook.
(DJ from Dallas)
He had some success when he was really young but it wasn't the kind of success that suggested he was a lock to stick. Sure enough, he struggled this year and needs more seasoning. He should be a solid all around middle infield contributor but just needs more time to get it all together. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-16 17:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, Is the Rougned Odor move to the top of the lineup an endorsement of his capabilities or simply a lack of qualifications on the part of Andrus and Martin?? How high should we be on Rougy??
(DJ from Dallas )
It's probably a little bit of both, although I think it's more that Elvis Andrus isn't an ideal leadoff guy and Leonys Martin has enough power that they want to push him down. I could see Odor being standard mixed relevant; in only he probably could earn $16-18 at the top end. (Mike Gianella)
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)CJ, thanks for the chat!! Any idea what's happened to Rougned Odor this year??
(DJ from Dallas)
Struggling to start the year along with the rest of that team. He will adjust. (CJ Wittmann)
2015-04-22 14:00:00 (link to chat)CJ, thanks for the chat!! Any idea what's happened to Rougned Odor this year??
(DJ from Dallas)
Struggling to start the year along with the rest of that team. He will adjust. (CJ Wittmann)
2015-03-25 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Jordan!! What is your opinion of Rougned Odor, both for this year and longer term??
(DJ from Dallas)
I swear I'm really not trying to say only positive things about the Rangers. They just have really good young players. Rougie is all that's right with baseball, and I think he's going to be a stud keystone guy for a long time. I love his approach, I love the way he plays the game, I love his swing... I could write a haiku. (Jordan Gorosh)
2015-01-20 19:30:00 (link to chat)Nick Franklin on par with Rougned Odor?? That's a real head scratcher!! Odor has performed far better at age 20 in MLB than Franlklin, who's 23. What am I missing??
(Jimmy from Arlington)
That I said three-year rankings, and that I was answering from a fantasy POV. I'd probably take Odor IRL, but Odor isn't anywhere near his prime and has competition from Profar. Franklin's floor is lower, but I think his ceiling is comparable and he could turn into a multi-positional monster in Tampa. (Ben Carsley)
2015-02-12 19:00:00 (link to chat)How much #want does Rougned Odor have? Can it be calculated in projections?
(Ty from USA)
It is impossible to quantify Rougned Odor's want. Well, maybe not impossible, but I've not been able to do the math on it. (Kate Morrison)
2015-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat!! Is it safe to assume that Rougned Odor is the Rangers' starting 2B in 2015 and, if so, what kind of production do you expect from him?? I appreciate your thoughts!!
(Bobby from Arlington)
I'd guess incremental improvement on last season. Hitting is so tough right now with the way bullpens are constructed and the speed at which pitchers throw. I haven't seen data on this but it wouldn't surprise me if this is one of the most difficult times to come into the majors as a young player (making Mike Trout all the more incredible). The baseball season is long and Odor is young. He had his best month in September last season so maybe that's an indicator he's figured some things out. Even if he's not a star this year he's an exciting young player who should be increasingly valuable as the years go on. (Matthew Kory)
2014-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat) Thanks for the great chats!! There's a lot of noise about the Rangers trading Elvis Andrus. Are Jurickson Profar and Rougned Odor good enough to handle short and second for the Rangers, or are these rumors just a bunch of hot air??
(DJ from Dallas)
Hey, DJthanks for participating.
I think that both Profar and Odor profile as everyday big leaguers, with a chance to be first-division players, and Odor may even have passed Profar from the standpoint of likelihood of reaching that ceiling. My concern, though, is that both of them might end up at 2B, with Profar's chances of playing SS dented by the shoulder problems that might affect his arm. That being said, the Rangers have more infielders in the pipeline, including Sardinas and Michael de Leon, so if someone were willing to take Andrus' contract, I think they'd gladly ship him off and find a way to patch the hole. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-12-11 18:00:00 (link to chat)Mark, Thanks for the chat!! You guys are the best in the business!! How do you expect the Elvis Andrus, Jurickson Profar, Rougned Odor situation to be resolved for 2015??
(DJ from Dallas )
Thanks for the kind words! It's really amazing how these things always tend to work themselves out, and I think this one will as well, as the Rangers will have opportunities to flip some players throughout the remainder of the off-season. If they have confidence that Profar is healthy and ready to play, then he has the highest ceiling of the trio and should play every day in some fashion or another. His partner in crime up the middle will depend on what the Ranges need to move to improve the rest of their roster, but if I'm in their shoes, I would be inclined to see what I could get back for Andrus and turn the reigns over to the kids. (Mark Anderson)
2014-10-14 18:00:00 (link to chat)Matt, thanks for the chat!! Did any rookie perform better on an age-adjusted earnings basis (if there is such a thing) than Rougned Odor?? I appreciate your insights!!
(DJ from Dallas)
This really was the year of the Old Rookie, wasn't it? Odor got to play a bunch as the youngest MLB player under no pressure, except for maybe Yu Darvish's perfect game attempt. There were plenty of great 23-year-olds but if we, say, subtract one WARP per year older than Odor, I guess he really was at the top. (Matt Sussman)
2014-09-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Craig, I don't understand the talk about Rougned Odor possibly being behind Jurickson Profar for the 2015 Rangers 2B job. Looks like he's a real MLB hitter at age 20. What am I missing?? Thanks so much for your thoughts!!
(Bill from Phoenix)
I think that's forgetting how good a healthy Jurickson Profar is. I originally expected on of Profar, Andrus and Odor to be out the door in the offseason but if Profar can't get healthy there's no reason to stretch themselves thin at the position. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat, Ben!! Is Rougned Odor a keeper?? I see him batting third now against RHP and wondered if he's really that good (at age 20!) or if the new manager is just goofing around.
(Billy from Dallas)
You're welcome! Hes done a nice job holding his own as a 20-year-old in the big leagues, but a .253/.293/.389 line isnt super impressive. Hes a future top-10 fantasy second baseman, but I dont think he comes anywhere close to performing as such in 2015. Hes batting third against LHP because were basically down to him, Beltre and Non-Prospect Daniel Robertson in Texas. (Ben Carsley)
2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ethan, thanks for your insights!! What's the story with Rougned Odor? He's batting third against RHP and looks like he's doing pretty well as a 20 year old. Do you think he's for real?? What's his longer term potential?? The BP chats are the best!!
(Sam from Fort Worth)
I absolutely think he's for real. Role 6 player with a potential plus-plus hit tool and solid grades elsewhere. He's the real deal. He's also 20 years old. Think about that for a second. (Ethan Purser)
2014-09-10 12:00:00 (link to chat)Tucker, Where does Rougned Odor fit for the Rangers in 2015?? Do you think he will he become an impact hitter?? I appreciate your opinion!!
(Bob from Arlington)
Odor is playing for the Rangers, likely at 2B. I really, really like him. I might like him more than that Professor guy. I think he has potential to become an impact bat. His numbers at age 20 are phenomenal, but it's his ability to learn and make adjustments. They are not showing in the numbers. In my viewings, I have seen them from bat to bat. It takes some time to piece altogether.

I'm watching guys in Low-A that are the same age as him and I "like" some of those guys. (Tucker Blair)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jordan, thanks for all the insights!! These chats are a lot of fun. What's your take on Rougned Odor?? Most kids his age are on their way back to the minors after a couple hundred MLB at bats, having had their weaknesses exposed and exploited by the cruel MLB pitchers. He seems to be at least holding his own. Any meaningful upside??
(Jimmy from Arlington)
Hell yes there is meaningful upside. Odor is one of my favorites. Plays the game with his hair on fire, can pick it, and the hit tool has 7 upside. The Rangers may not have expected it, but they've got a legit competition on their hands for 2B in 2015, assuming Andrus isn't moved. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the insights. Is Rougned Odor a lock for the 2B job next year with texas?
(Bill from Dallas)
I wouldn't say lock. Not unless they do something with Elvis Andrus, Jurickson Profar, or someone else that would allow all three to be on the roster at once. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat! You guys are the best!! What's your analysis of Rougned Odor? I know his production isn't great, but most guys his age are in Lo A ball. Does he have any long term fantasy value??
(DJ from Dallas)
Odor is going to be fine. He's going to hit, and hit a lot. Rangers probably rushed him just slightly (or did they really?) so I am not worried about a 20 year old going through his lumps in his rookie season.

Put this in perspective: Jonathan Schoop is two years older and struggling much more than Odor is. (Tucker Blair)
2014-08-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)What's your upside projection for Rougned Odor?? Should we be impressed that he's not overwhelmed by MLB at age 20??
(Billy from Arlington)
I'll stick with PECOTA whne it comes to projections, but absolutely, we should be very impressed when a 20 year old of any name doesn't sink immediately at the major league level. (Matthew Kory)
2014-07-24 19:00:00 (link to chat)Mauricio, Thanks for the great chats - they are the best!! What's the story with Rougned Odor?? Just saw him play three games against NY and he looked good. Solid defense, good offense and he's only 20 years old!! What am I missing?? I thought most kids his age are in low A ball. Does he have a chance to be really good??
(Jim from New York)
Thanks for the kind words!

Odor is holding his own at the major league level which is great to see considering his age. Most kids his age are in low a and yeah he has a chance to be really special (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Not technically a top 50 question, but if you only get to choose one for the next six years, do you take Rougned Odor or Jurickson Profar?
(Or from Denton)
Odor. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-07-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is a Rougned Odor the front runner at this point for the Rangers second base job in 2015??
(Billy from Arlington)
Odor has handled his jump to the big leagues much better than I anticipated this year. Whether he is the front runner or not depends largely on what happens with the rest of the infield, including the recovery of Jurickson Profar. If Profar is healthy and performing at expected levels, Odor can't match that and any apparent grip on that job would have to be tenuous at best. (Mark Anderson)
2014-07-03 19:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the insights, Mauricio!! Rougned Odor was pretty highly rated in the Texas system at the beginning of the year. What's your evaluation of his initial shot at MLB and how does his age factor into that evaluation?
(DJ from Arlington )
I wanted to expand on this a bit even though i answered a similar question. He has a mature skillset for 20 and he's flashed it a bit at the MLB level. I think anytime you're dealing with someone as young as Odor you are ecstatic if he can just hold his own at the major league level. This is not an easy thing to do at any age, much less 20. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the insights, these chats are the best!! With regard to Rougned Odor, how do you evaluate his performance and upside given his relative youth? Should I be disappointed by his modest production or enthused that he's holding his own at an extremely young age (for MLB)??
(DJ from Arlington )
Thanks for the compliments! I'd lean closer to being pleased that he's 20 and not THOROUGHLY OVERMATCHED. I tend to be pretty conservative on expectations of rookies so I wasn't expecting him to set the league on fire. Those stories are still great, but very much the exception and not the rule even with more and more young guys excelling immediately. It still often takes some time. (Paul Sporer)
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Dustin Pedroia and good comp for Rougned Odor or is that more on the optimistic side? Both play with a lot of intensity, power in the 15-20 HR range, 35-40 doubles, hit between 280 - .300? Pedroia may strikeout less, but, to me, those seem like reasonable numbers for Odor.
(Lorenzo from Jacksonville)
Giving anyone that comp would be VERY optimistic. Probably more Omar Infante, but perfect world stuff would be the Pedroia stuff (Paul Sporer)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Who are some guys that you are higher on than other guys on the BP team? Lower? Also, what region do you do most scouting in?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Higher: Jake Thompson. He's going to burst onto the scene as a potential back end of top 100 prospect this year, if I have anything to say about it. Rougned Odor as well, I think he's one of the top 20 prospects in the game.

Lower: Maikel Franco. I see him as a 1B long term, and his feel for the barrel is only okay. The power potential is nice, but I absolutely detest 1B prospects. Gary Sanchez and Jorge Soler are each guys I'm low on, althoug I think the BP team is, too.

I'm located in Chicago, so I see a lot of MWL games. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)What's your take on Rougned Odor, recognizing he only has a handful of MLB at bats?? Thanks for the chat!!
(DJ from Dallas)
Odor is a flat out stud and a gamer. The more I think about it and talk to people in and around the game, the more I like him. I'm not 100% sold it's actually profar's job anymore, and profar is a flat out stud. Odor has swagger in the box, and a 7 bat really might not be an understatement. There is nothing not to love. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-15 20:00:00 (link to chat)Supposing comparable playing time, Kolten Wong or Rougned Odor for rest of the season?
(JoeTinker from Chicago)
Wong. Don't overlook him just because he struggled out of the gate. (Bret Sayre)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Will Rougned Odor stick?
(Tommy from Dallas)
Eventually, yes. He wasn't brought up to stick at this time. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-09 19:00:00 (link to chat)How do you view Arismendy Alcantara in the long term as a fantasy prospect?
(Jake from Florida)
I have him on the same level as Rougned Odor. I sway on who I rank higher depending on the day (and league size). To me hes a do everything well guy with some risk. I think he can be a 20-20 guy. Im really high on him. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-04-03 19:30:00 (link to chat)Rougned Odor or Arismendy Alcantara?
(MRubio52 from Chicago)
I still believe in Arismendy (Craig Goldstein)
2014-03-14 09:00:00 (link to chat)Mike, the most vexing question in our fantasy league this year is surely how to pronounce the given name of prospect Rougned Odor. The second most vexing is which is the stressed syllable of his surname. There are all sorts of kinky possibilities, but we would like to be correct.
(TeamPineTar from KC)
The interwebs tell me that it's pronounced "ROOG-ned o-DOOR. If it makes you feel any better, I'm terrible at guessing pronunciations as well. As a kid, I used to say C.I. Young for Cy Young, much to everyone's amusement. (Mike Gianella)
2014-02-26 19:00:00 (link to chat)Dynasty League looking for a second baseman for the future. Who do you like more, Mookie Betts or Rougned Odor? Or is there someone else you think could be more promising?
(Justin from STL)
I like Odor better, Arismendy Alcantara is right there with him too. (Mauricio Rubio)
2014-03-03 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rougned Odor has a high leg kick and lots of movement in his swing. Are you concerned that major league pitchers may be able to exploit this?
(Ben from Dallas)
Adjustments will need to occur, but this isn't unique to Odor. You stick with what works until it stops working and then you adjust. The best players are the ones that can make the necessary adjustments. I think he has that aptitude. (Jason Parks on the Completed Prospect Rankings)
2014-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you're Rougned Odor, do you have to be thinking 'I'm gonna have to kill either Profar or Andrus in a year or two in order to crack the Ranger's lineup?'
(Paul from DC)
Murder seems unnecessary. Id go with the eye drops in the wine glass that Sak used in Wedding Crashers. These things work themselves out though. A few months ago we didnt know where Jurickson Profar was going to play until the Rangers turned that problem into Prince Fielder. (Jeff Moore)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much separates the following three wonderfully named 2Bs (in terms of their expected future performance, not their names): Rougned Odor, Arismenday Alcantara, and Taylor Lindsey.
(Mario66 from Pittsburgh)
Odor is considerably better than the other two. I like Alcantara and Lindsey, but they're not in Odor's class in terms of future potential. (Mark Anderson)
2013-12-10 18:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mike, Where will Rougned Odor rank among 2b prospects? Do you like him more long-term than Wong?
(Chad from OKC)
Hi Chad:

It could be argued that Odor is ahead of Kolten Wong and ahead of all 2B prospects, keeping in mind that 2B is generally a thinner position prospect wise than most positions. I think that Odor has a higher ceiling than Wong but given how young Odor is time will tell (yes, I know this is a big old copout). (Mike Gianella)
2013-10-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Most likely Rangers 2nd baseman in 2015: Ian Kinsler, Jurickson Profar, Rougned Odor or Mark McLemore?
(Or from Denton)
I'd love for it to be Odor. That kid is full on #want. If the Rangers keep Profar, I can see a scenario (down the line) where Profar slides over to SS and Odor takes over at 2B. Kinsler is still a good player, but I don't see him at 2B in 2015. (Jason Parks)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Chances any of Texas's J2 class this year play Stateside in 2014? Have you witnessed Diplan yourself? When is his arrival?
(Hightower from Texas)
I haven't seen any of them yet but imagine the high-priced ones are likely to be at instructs later this month, so I should be able to put an eye to them then. I'll be able to answer your question more accurately after my visit to instructs, but I think it's always somewhat likely that the high priced guys will start out in the AZL. Not always true sometimes it's DSL and in the rare cases of Martin Perez, Rougned Odor, and Jurickson Profar it was Spokane but it's generally AZL. (Jason Cole)

(Sicnarf from Mahoning Valley)
It's in the conversation. I was pulling for Deik Scram, but that's not happening. Rougned Odor would be up there. (Ben Lindbergh)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Austin Hedges worth driving 3+ hours to see in San Antonio because he DH'd the last day of the Frisco series?
(K. from Frisco)
He'll likely be back in San Antonio to open the 2014 season, so if you don't mind waiting awhile, you don't need to make that drive. But I'll be down in San Antonio for the Frisco series next week. Austin Hedges, Matt Wisler, Rougned Odor, Luis Sardinas, Luke Jackson, and more. That's a fun series. (Jason Cole)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Has Rougned Odor become the Rangers' top prospect?
(Or from Dallas)
I'll answer another couple more in-depth Odor questions soon, but he's probably #2 for me right now, behind Jorge Alfaro. (Jason Cole)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, Rougned Odor has been raking since call up as youngest guy in AA, 1 Aug. SSS, but do you see this season as a breakout enough to get him into top 50? Will he get a cup of coffee next year?
(tsweber from Reno, NV)
I'm hesitant to touch the top 50/100 projections since I haven't really sat down and thought about it. He's probably the no. 2 prospect in the Rangers' org for me right now, though, and he could see the majors at some point next season. (Jason Cole)
2013-08-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Would like your take on Rougned Odor, youngest kid in AA, and getting it done. Is he top 50? Prado a good comp?
(tsweber from reno, nv)
He's been very impressive. Not sure if he'll make the top 50. He's got a lot more speed than Prado. (Paul Sporer)

Nick Williams and Rougned Odor, if you want to consider them sleepers. Maybe Luke Jackson. (Jason Cole)
2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)If the Blue Jays traded Josh Johnson at the deadline what could they realistically expect in return? Would Rougned Odor from Texas or Kolten Wong from St. Louis be feasible?
(Kaya from Toronto)
I think it'll all depend on how Johnson performs and, perhaps mostly importantly, how the stuff looks leading up to the deadline. I think there are a number of teams curious about the direction Johnson will go over the next month. But those types of prospects would be at the very least what Toronto could probably get.

2013-05-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, Rougned Odor has a .195 ISO in A+ at age 19. How soon until he jumps the high-ceiling guys on the Rangers prospect sheet?
(Bucky from Texas)
I like the guy; I've seen him play since he signed. I don't think he will be jumping the high ceiling guys, but he is making a very strong case to be in their loaded Top 10. He won't jump Alfaro. I'm not sure anybody can at this point. (Jason Parks)
2013-05-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What prospects in lower-level stand out to you in having a feel for the game?
(TPX2 from Taiwan)
Off the top of my head, Raul Adalberto Mondesi impressed big time with his overall feel in spring training. Rougned Odor in High-A with the Rangers is another. (Jason Cole)
2012-09-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi, Jason. Good work to you and BP in strengthening the prospect coverage. Future is looking good. Can you compare/contrast 2B prospects Jonathan Schoop and Rougned Odor? Seems like the shine is off of Schoop a bit after a subpar season, numbers-wise. What have you heard from scouts about what the numbers might not be telling us? He was young for that level so I'm hoping the numbers are not a huge red flag. Similarly, do you like what you are seeing/hearing about Odor?
(ORWahoo from Tigard, OR)
Very different players. Schoop has good size and an impressive physical quality about him. I think he could develop into an average offensive player, and maybe develop a little more pop than expected. Odor is a Gestalt prospect, with his overall grade being more impressive than any individual tool. He is a Placido Polanco type, with good actions/range at 2B, and a quick bat capable of line-drive pop. He's a major league regular for me. I would take him over Schoop. (Jason Parks)
2012-06-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any player in baseball whose name is as fun to say as Yoenis Cespedes?
(Mike from Miami )
Maybe Rougned Odor, but he's still a long way from the bigs. (Ian Miller)
