Rangers to discuss extension with Rougned Odor

Rougned Odor

Rougned Odor


Included in the latest Inside Baseball column from Jon Heyman at CBS Sports is this little nugget ...

The Rangers are expected to sit down with Rougned Odor after the World Series to see if something long-term can be worked out.

Odor isn’t even eligible for salary arbitration yet -- and probably won’t become eligible until 2018 -- so there’s no real rush on either side to get a deal done this winter.

The 21-year-old second baseman got off to a poor start in 2015, but he turned it on in a major way after returning in mid-June from a demotion to Triple-A Round Rock and finished this season with a cool .781 OPS in 120 total games.

Odor then went 5-for-18 with a homer, a double, and seven runs scored in the Rangers’ five-game loss to the Blue Jays in the ALDS.
