Rangers agree to deal with shortstop Odor

The Rangers and Venezuelan shortstop Rougned Odor have agreed to terms on a $425,000 deal, according to Baseball America.

Odor is a 5-foot-10 left-handed hitter with a clean swing. He's increased his speed of late, but could be better suited at second base as his career advances. His uncle, Rouglas Odor, is the Indians' Double-A hitting coach.

Over the summer, Baseball America reported that Odor was 16 years old and that the Yankees, Phillies and Blue Jays had interest in him.
