Remember last year when Rougned Odor got off to a horrendous start before being sent down. Then, he came back about a month later and was a world beater.
Well, he's kind of on that same track again, though a demotion seems unlikely this time around.
Odor went 2-for-4 on Thursday night — only his second multi-hit game of the year — with two doubles, two RBIs and a run. All of that got his season average up to .200 two weeks into the year.
It'd be a really large development for the Rangers if he could parlay Thursday night's performance into a nice little hot streak, and he'll get that chance by following it up on Friday night and over the weekend before the Astros, who Odor destroyed last year, come to town next week.
