Baltimore Orioles reach 1-year deal with veteran 2B Rougned Odor

The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a one-year deal with second baseman Rougned Odor.

The team announced the move Tuesday night. The 27-year-old Odor spent last season with the New York Yankees, hitting .202 with 15 home runs and 39 RBI in 102 games.

Odor played seven seasons with the Texas Rangers before joining the Yankees. He’s hit just .234 for his career, but he’s produced plenty of power for a middle infielder. Odor hit 33 home runs in 2016, 30 the following year and then 30 again in 2019.

A perfect marriage. Replacement level player, replacement level team.

The Orioles had 5 or 6 really awful hitters get decent time at 2B last year. Pat Valaika (58 starts, 47 OPS+), Stevie Wilkerson (18 starts, 15 OPS+), Rio Ruiz (14 starts, 49 OPS+), Jahmai Jones (8 starts, 11 OPS+) and Domingo Leyba (8 starts, 25 OPS+).

O's 2B were -3.8 wins above average in 2021, the worst at any position in MLB.

Yeah, it's hard to picture that Odor could be an improvement for a team. But the Orioles are right there.

This should give them enough of a bridge to the Jordan Westburg era at 2B. He started 2021 in Low-A Delmarva and ended it playing 30 games at AA, going .323/.429 in that stint for Bowie. I assume he starts 2022 in AA but ends in AAA, and is in Baltimore to start 2023 (his age-24 season). That is, of course, if they decide to put him at 2B.
