We see a lot of great names here at Scouting Book, but every once and awhile there's still one that makes us do a double-take. This offensive-minded infielder's name (nephew of Indians coach Rouglas) is really named Rougned (RYOO-nyed) Odor. We're hoping that was a little less teaseworthy for a kid growing up in Venezuela than it would have been in Lubbock.
An All-Star for the Venezuelan National Team in 2009, Odor is a short infielder with good fielding instincts, a strong arm, and a sweet swing from the left side of the plate. He's a long way from the majors, with a whole life of A-ball ahead of him first.

After a full month in MLB, Ranger rookie second baseman Rougned Odor is slashing a stellar .302/.327/.490. The recovering Jurickson Profar is looking more and more like offseason trade bait every day.

Rougned Odor will join the Rangers yesterday as part of roster move to cover for the injured Donnie Murphy and Jurickson Profar. Rougned, Rangers' Minor League Player of the Year in 2013, was hitting .279 with six homers in 32 games at Frisco. With a decent showing he could stick on the MLB roster for the rest of the season, if only as a part-time player.
