Texas Rangers Fantasy Spin
Rougned Odor went 3-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Athletics. After the Rangers staked the A's to an eight-run lead, the Rangers nearly stormed all the way back on the strength of Odor and Asdrubal Cabrera. Odor knocked a two-run single in the fourth inning to get the Rangers on the board, and his RBI double in the eighth inning helped the Rangers get within striking distance. Odor took his slow starting to an extreme this year -- he's batting a meager .177/.246/.333 even after Sunday's effort -- but he's talented enough to go on a run at any point. Perhaps Sunday was the start of an interesting stretch for the 25-year-old.
Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin
Marco Hernandez went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Rays.Hernandez managed an RBI single off Blake Snell in the second inning to give the Red Sox their only run in what finished as a 6-1 defeat. The infielder was just called up on Saturday. While he was hitting a nice .303/.337/.500 with two home runs and nine RBI across 21 games at Triple-A prior to his call-up, there is no reason to expect him to see serious run with the club barring injury attrition.
