Sardinas, Odor among trio moved to Double-A


ARLINGTON -- The Rangers promoted three of their top nine prospects to Double-A Frisco from Class A Advanced Myrtle Beach on Thursday. Infielder Luis Sardinas, infielder Rougned Odor and right-handed pitcher Luke Jackson made the jump to the RoughRiders as part of six promotions by the organization.

Sardinas, 20, is ranked as the 77th best prospect in baseball. He hit .297 with a home run and 31 RBIs in 95 games with the Pelicans. He's is the second-best prospect in the organization and the ninth-best shortstop prospect in baseball.

Odor, 19, is the youngest player at the Double-A level by nearly three months. He's ranked as baseball's seventh-best second-base prospect and the fifth-best prospect in the farm system. He led Myrtle Beach in batting (.304) and stolen bases (27) in 98 games before his promotion. He was part of the Futures Game "Final Vote" this season.

Sardinas and Odor hit 1-2 in Frisco's lineup Thursday, starting at shorstop and second base, respectively, and went a combined 4-for-10. Sardinas was 1-for-5, while Odor was 3-for-5 with a triple and a run scored.

Jackson, 21, is the ninth-best Rangers prospect and the third-best pitching prospect in the organization. The former first-round pick in the 2010 First-Year Player Draft went 9-4 with a 2.41 ERA in 19 starts. His 104 strikeouts are fourth most in the Texas farm system.
