BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
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)
2013-08-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)If I make the ML would I have the best name ever?
(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)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Better offense: Rougned Odor or Jonathan Villar?

2013-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any sleeper candidates to make the Rangers Top 10 this offseason?
(Brian from LA)
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)
