Odor is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Odor went 1-for-3 in Saturday's 13-0 loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Odor's season has been one impressive peak sandwiched between two valleys. He had a .602 OPS over his first 173 plate appearances and a .605 OPS over his last 141 plate appearances. In between, from June 20 to Aug. 11, Odor batted .333 with a 1.055 OPS, 13 home runs and 30 RBI over 189 plate appearances. The Rangers are looking for the peak Odor over the final week and for him to carry that momentum into 2019. Even with the slump over the past month, overall Odor has improved walk and hard-hit rates in 2018, indicating he's on the right path after a disastrous 2017.

Odor is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Odor will take a seat for the second time through 16 games this month. Over that stretch, the 24-year-old is hitting .196/.246/.286 with a homer and two stolen bases. Hanser Alberto is starting at the keystone and hitting ninth in his place.

Odor will start at second base and bat leadoff Sunday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Three of the Rangers' preferred candidates for the leadoff role -- Shin-Soo Choo, Delino DeShields and Elvis Andrus -- are all out of the lineup, so Odor will handle those honors in the series finale. Though not the most patient of hitters, Odor has at least made strides on that front in 2018, with his 8.4 percent walk rate representing a career best by more than three points. While he remains active on the basepaths, Odor's efficiency has plummeted, as he's needed 23 attempts to nab 11 steals.

Odor is not in the lineup Monday against the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Odor will head to the bench for what appears to be a well-deserved off day following 38 consecutive starts. The second baseman owns a solid .281/.353/.569 slash line with 11 homers and 35 RBI over those contests. Hanser Alberto will man the keystone and hit ninth in Odor's place.

Odor went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers were already down 5-0 when Odor took Hunter Strickland deep in the eighth inning. The second baseman now has 17 homers on the year, seven of which have come in August, and he's pulled his slash line up to a solid .274/.349/.482.

Odor went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Odor delivered a first-inning, run-scoring single then bailed out starter Yovani Gallardo with a three-run homer in the seventh. It was his first home run in 11 games, but he's been an impact hitter even without leaving the yard, slashing .310/.362/.429 during that run. He raised his season OPS to .838, nearly 200 points higher than last season, and ranks fourth in that category among second basemen.

Odor went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, four RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 11-4 win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

A productive Odor has become a near-daily occurrence. He's knocked seven home runs, driven in 16 and scored 14 runs over the last 10 games, posting a 1.434 OPS during that stretch. Since being scratched for two games in June -- which may have been related to a violation of team rules -- Odor is slashing .327/.408/.653 with 13 homers and 29 RBI over 39 games.

Odor went 2-for-5 with a grand-slam home run and two runs scored in Friday's 11-3 win over Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Odor will not want to see the Orioles leave town. He's gone 3-for-6 with five walks, two homers and seven RBI in the first two games of the series. But it isn't only the Birds feeling the thunder of Odor's bat. Since the All-Star break, the second baseman is hitting .404 (21-for-52) with six home runs, 14 RBI and 17 runs over 13 games.

Odor went 1-for-1 with a two-run home run, five walks, three RBI, and three runs scored Thursday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Odor took Miguel Castro deep in the sixth inning for his 11th home run of the season and fifth since the All-Star break. The five walks were a season high and also nudged his walk rate over eight percent through 277 at-bats, nearly double his 4.6 percent career rate. That has aided him in posting a surprisingly solid .348 on-base percentage, which would be his best mark in a season by over 30 points.
