Rougned Odor has a shoulder injury

15 Comments

Because the Rangers’ injury news apparently never stops, now infielder Rougned Odor will be examined further by team doctors today after leaving Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury.

Odor hurt his shoulder sliding back into first base on a pickoff attempt and has been diagnosed with a sprain for now, leaving him day-to-day until the Rangers find out more.

Texas’ roster has repeatedly been wrecked by injuries all season and that continued yesterday, as the Rangers announced that first baseman/outfielder Mitch Moreland will miss three months following ankle surgery.

Odor, who was called up from Double-A well ahead of schedule at age 20 because of injuries to Jurickson Profar and Donnie Murphy, has hit .290 with two homers and a .793 OPS through 24 games.
