New York Yankees acquire IF Rougned Odor in trade with Texas Rangers

The New York Yankees have acquired infielder Rougned Odor from the Texas Rangers.

The Rangers will receive minor league outfielders Antonio Cabello and Josh Stowers, with the Yankees also getting cash considerations in the deal.

Texas is expected to absorb almost the entirety of the $27 million owed to Odor, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. He’s due $12 million this year, $12 million in 2022 and a $3 million buyout on a $13 million club option in 2023.

Rougned Odor won’t make opening day roster, is no longer a Texas Ranger

The Rangers on Monday fully embraced moving into a new era and letting the remnants of the past go.

Rougned Odor is no longer a Ranger.

The player who entered spring training as the player with the most remaining big-league service to the Rangers was informed he would not make the opening day roster. Because he has more than five years of major league service, Odor can’t be sent to the minor leagues without his permission. He can, in effect, force the Rangers to release him while still receiving more than $24 million guaranteed to him over the next two years.

Odor, 27, has played 858 games in a Rangers uniform and had one of the most memorable moments in team history — a TKO punch of Jose Bautista in 2016 after a dustup at second base. But he never seemed to recover from that viral moment where he was cast as a baseball tough guy. He seemed to try to live up to that reputation and his on-field performance declined.

The decline was even more sharply pronounced after he signed a six-year, $49 million contract extension with the Rangers in the spring of 2017. Since the start of that year, his WAR ranks 137th of 138 players in the majors with at least 1,500 plate appearances. In 2020, he slashed just .167/.209/.413/.623 in 38 games.
