For the second time in three weeks, Texas Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor received AL Player of the Week honors, becoming the first Rangers player in 13 years to earn the honor twice in one season.
The 24-year-old is having a sneaky-good season, especially if you look at his numbers after his less-than-stellar first half. Over the past week, Odor slashed .304/.448/.870 with four home runs and 10 RBI.
That's just a small sample size of what has been an incredible start to the second half. Since the All-Star break, Odor is slashing .400/.471/.833 with seven home runs and 16 RBI.
Matt Carpenter (NL) and Rougned Odor (AL) named Players of the Week for the second time in three weeks. Carpenter 423/.543/.962, 7 R, 2 2B, 4 HR, 7 RBI for #Cardinals; Odor .304 (7-for-23), 8 R, 2B, 4 HR, 10 RBI for #Rangers— Kyle Glaser (@KyleAGlaser) August 6, 2018
After a rough 2017 campaign, Odor has bounced back in a big way and is having a career year. Over 82 games, the Rangers second baseman is slashing .272/.352/.472 with 13 home runs and 40 RBI.
