Odor reportedly rejected extension offer from Rangers

Right hooks notwithstanding, Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor has had a fantastic year. With 16 home runs and 46 RBIs on a .275/.296/.491 slash line in the first half of the season, Odor has flashed tremendous power for a middle infielder and has helped Texas to a comfortable lead atop the AL West. The 22-year-old has done well to boost his value, and he knows it. According to...

David Price vents after frustrating outing: 'I'm tired of this'

BOSTON — There were some promising developments that came out of David Price’s start Tuesday night, but the Red Sox ace wasn’t interested in hearing them. Price lasted eight innings against the Texas Rangers and struck out 10 batters while walking one. It was his fifth eight-inning start of the season and fourth in his last six games, and his 130 strikeouts this season lead...

Rougned Odor drenches reporter with Powerade

Hoisting a Gatorade jug and pouring it all over the baseball player who provided a game-winning hit late in a game is nothing new. Bringing out a second jug and drenching a reporter is, however. The Rangers jumped out to a 3-0 lead and defeated the Red Sox with ease on Sunday, 6-2. After the game, when a sideline reporter was attempting to get an interview with Rougned Odor, he...

Jose Bautista says Rougned Odor was looking for fight before May 16 brawl

Remembering Rougned Odor’s Big Adjustment

After the scrum was gone, after he’d answered all the difficult questions about his punch heard around the baseball world, after he’d deflected and postponed and shrugged, after he slumped into his seat and sighed, Rougned Odor looked up and saw me coming. To his credit, he raised his eyebrows for the coming question, ready for another round. He was relieved when I asked him...

Rougned Odor is the new bad guy of the MLB

You know what is outrageously stupid about the brawl between the Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays? The media and public are completely botching the player in the wrong. Ten years ago today, Chicago Cubs catcher Michael Barrett became a notorious bad boy of the MLB when he threw knuckles at White Sox catcher AJ Pierzynski, similar to what Rougned Odor did to Jose Bautista...

Rangers affiliate to sell drink in honor of Rougned Odor’s punch

Major League Baseball suspended Rougned Odor eight games for rearranging Jose Bautista’s face with his fist, but that’s not going to stop one Texas Rangers minor league affiliate from capitalizing on the punch.

Bautista on Odor: It takes a bigger man to knock me down

Jose Bautista was rocked in the jaw by Texas Rangers infielder Rougned Odor on Sunday, and the Toronto Blue Jays slugger will no doubt be feeling sore for a few days. However, Bautista was quick to point out after the game that he did not hit the ground. While ripping the Rangers for being “cowardly,” Bautista also chastised Odor. “He got me pretty good so I have to give...
