Oakland Coliseum is known for raw sewage backing up into its dugouts, but the strangest Odor in the American League West this year emanates from Texas.
On Thursday, the Texas Rangers announced that they have signed the younger brother of second baseman Rougned Odor… Rougned Odor. That’s right, the Odor Brothers have the same first name.
The elder Odor, who already gives the Padres’ Jedd Gyorko a run for his money as “Major League Player who can most easily be confused for a Star Wars character,” made his debut for Texas last season. The 20-year-old second baseman from Venezuela hit .259 with nine home runs in his rookie campaign, and apparently his father goes by George Foreman’s naming conventions.
