Texas Rangers Fantasy Spin
Rougned Odor homered twice and drove in five runs to help the Rangers down the Angels 9-3 on Thursday. Odor crushed a Griffin Canning off-speed pitch into the second deck in Arlington for a two-run homer in the fourth inning, and then he hit a 471-foot shot to right-center in the seventh inning for a three-run blast. The homers gave him 12 long balls on the year, and he's got 43 RBI and 38 runs scored despite a .191/.259/.389 line. Such is life with the contact-challenged-yet-immensely-talented 25-year-old.
Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin
Nelson Cruz went 3-for-5 and scored a pair of runs in a loss to the Athletics on Thursday. He finished the day with two singles and a double. The two runs he scored were the only runs his team could manage in the lopsided loss. Cruz also got nailed attempting to steal a base. The 39-year-old has a .286 batting average with 16 home runs and 46 RBI in 59 games.
