MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Wesley Dotson writes that Rougned Odor carried the Rangers to a series-clinching 4-2 victory over the Angels yesterday afternoon.

Jeff Wilson writes that Rougie saved the Rangers during another sloppy game in Arlington after a weekend filled with storms.

In a bit of Alanis Morissette irony, Evan Grant writes that the storms caused damage to the construction of the stadium the Rangers are building with the promise of getting fans out of the weather.

Levi Weaver writes about Odor’s August heroics and a near miss for yesterday’s starter Yovani Gallardo.

Grant writes that it’s been a remarkable turnaround for Odor as he’s gone from benched to potentially league Player of the Month in a matter of months.

Wilson ponders if 2018 second half Rougie is the new normal or if the Rougie of 2017 is still the real Rougie.

Grant’s notebook looks at how the Rangers might plan to survive the next few days with several aching starting pitchers, among other notes.

Dotson notes that Jose Leclerc has settled into being a force in the late innings after a few false starts to begin his big league career.

Weaver writes about the difficult season at the plate Delino DeShields has had trying to establish himself as a hitter.

The DMN provides an AP report on Leonys Martin getting released from the hospital as he continues to recover from a life-threatening infection. Godspeed, Leonys!

And, lastly, Jay Jaffe and Fangraphs have noticed that Jurickson Profar is finally here and living up to all that promise.

Have a nice day!
