MLB.com: Rangers Sign Rougned Odor’s Younger Brother, Also Named Rougned Odor

Hope it’s not too confusing when he goes for a visa:

You met up-and-coming Rougned Odor last season when the 20-year-old middle infielder notched 100 hits in his rookie campaign for the Rangers. Now, meet Rougned Odor’s younger brother ... Rougned Odor. The younger Rougned Odor followed in his brother’s footsteps (something we’re sure he’s accustomed to by now) and inked a deal with the Rangers on Thursday.
.  .  .
The older Odor spoke to MLB.com about his brother’s signing, and pointed out that their names aren’t exactly the same: “We have different middle names,” Odor the Elder said.

Odor the Elder & Odor the Younger? It’s like the Middle Ages.
