Rangers Agree To Terms With Venezuelan Shortstop

Venezuelan shortstop Rougned Odor has agreed to terms with the Rangers for $450K, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America.  The left-handed Odor can also hold his own at second base and many scouts feel that he will transition to the other side of the bag.

At 5'10", Badler writes that Odor stands out for his simple, compact stroke and advanced feel for hitting.  Some who have seen the middle infielder recently say that he has increased his speed, as evidenced by his time of 6.62 seconds in the 60-yard-dash.  Earlier this year Baseball America projected that Odor would be one of the ten best-compensated free agents from Latin America.
