In a weekly staple, we'll discuss who's in a groove and who's in a rut for the Texas Rangers.
Rougned Odor — Also in a weekly staple, here's Odor's spot in the "Who's On?" segment of the weekly post. Wow. The kid just keeps getting better and better. He's now 14-for-35 with two doubles, a triple, three homers and six RBIs in seven games. He's also scored eight runs in that time.
Catchers — This makeshift solution at catcher is actually paying off quite well right now. In the past seven games combined, Bobby Wilson (four starts) and Bryan Holaday (three starts) have combined to go 11-for-26 with two homers and nine RBIs.
Cole Hamels — Hamels had one of his best outings as a Ranger on Friday, tossing seven shutout innings with nine strikeouts. He'll take the hill aiming for a series win against the AL-best White Sox Wednesday afternoon.
Derek Holland — Holland has allowed 15 earned runs in his last five innings of work over two starts. That's pitiful. Some of that could be chalked up to Tuesday's rain delay, but not a lot.
Prince Fielder — In his last seven games, Fielder is hitting just .107 with one RBI. He was dropped to No. 5 in the order on Tuesday and was the only Ranger without a hit.
