Gallo, Odor leave game with injuries

New, comments

Both Joey Gallo and Rougned Odor have left tonight’s game early due to physical issues

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers lost he entire right side of their infield today, as Joey Gallo was lifted in the fifth inning with soreness in his left hamstring, and Rougned Odor was removed in the top of the seventh due to a contusion on his hand after a HBP.

Gallo was replaced at first base by Pete Kozma, and then Kozma moved to second base when Odor was pulled. Jonathan Lucroy went from catcher to first base, and Robinson Chirinos came into the game at catcher.

Gallo has been dealing with the sore hamstring for a while now, and the score was 8-0 when Kozma pinch hit for him, so this could be a situation where they are playing it safe with him, and if it were a tie game, he would have stayed in.

Odor had x-rays on his hand and wrist, which were negative, so that's good news.

Texas has an off day tomorrow, and hopefully both players will be good to go for the series opener Friday against Anaheim.
