Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor is not in Sunday night’s starting lineup due to soreness in his right wrist, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Luis Sardinas will start at second base in Odor’s stead and bat ninth.

Odor has been slow to get started at the plate, slashing .200/.231/.320 in 27 plate appearances. He has also yet to draw a walk and is 0-for-2 in stolen base attempts. Going into the season, Odor was rated as the #39 overall prospect by Baseball Prospectus.

      Well they just lost their odor, so they probably won’t stink more than the Astros.

      Eh, no big deal, it can’t be that painful. I mean, most of y’all were Astros fans before, so I’d imagine you would just inconspicuously switch back when the pendulum swings fully the other way.

    It was way too early to call him up in the first place.
