Rougned Odor: Cut by San Diego
The Padres released Odor on Monday.
Odor was designated for assignment last week and has now officially cleared waivers.

Over 157 plate appearances with the Padres this season, Odor slashed .210/.306/.370 with four home runs and two stolen bases.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Rougned Odor: Dropped from 40-man roster
Odor was designated for assignment by the Padres on Tuesday.
This move comes a few weeks after the Padres cut ties with Nelson Cruz. Odor was receiving semi-regular playing time out of the DH spot at one point, but he heads into DFA limbo having registered an overall .210/.306/.370 batting line with four homers and 18 RBI in 59 games (157 plate appearances) for San Diego....

Padres' Rougned Odor: On bench for afternoon game
Odor will sit for the first portion of Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Odor has featured regularly against righties of late but hasn't started against a southpaw all season, so it's no surprise to see him on the bench against Ranger Suarez. Odor could return to the lineup for the nightcap against right-hander Taijuan Walker.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Rougned Odor: On bench Friday
Odor is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets.
Odor seemed poised for an uptick in playing time when the Padres parted ways with Nelson Cruz earlier this week, but he's now been absent from the starting lineup five out of the last six games.

Padres' Rougned Odor: Takes seat Wednesday
Odor is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.
Though he's on the bench for the fourth time in five games, three of the lefty-hitting Odor's absences have come against southpaw pitchers. Odor still appears to have the edge on the final spot in San Diego's regular lineup versus right-handed pitching, even though he owns a modest .214/.307/.393 slash line (96 wRC+) in those matchups on the season....

Padres' Rougned Odor: On bench versus southpaw
Odor is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

Padres' Rougned Odor: May avoid trip to injured list
The Padres believe that Odor (groin) may not need a trip to the injured list, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
As Cassavell notes on his report, this is an unexpected turn of events. Odor left Friday's loss to the Cubs after tweaking his groin while rounding first on a double, and Padres manager Bob Melvin told reporters that it was widely expected that Odor would need a stint on the injured list. The Padres will now wait a few days before making the decision, but the optimism suggests this could be a short stay on the IL if he is placed on the list early next week.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Rougned Odor: Out as expected against Cubs
Odor (groin) is not in the starting lineup against the Cubs on Saturday.
Odor suffered a left groin strain in Friday's loss to the Cubs, and Padres manager Bob Melvin suggested that Odor was likely to be placed on the 10-day injured list. That hasn't occurred yet, but the infielder will miss Saturday's game as expected. Ha-Seong Kim gets the start at second base and will hit seventh with Odor out.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Rougned Odor: Diagnosed with left groin strain
Odor suffered a left groin strain during Friday's loss to the Cubs and he's likely to be placed on the 10-day injured list, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
"[Odor] gives us length in the lineup, has been great for us," manager Bob Melvin said after the game. "So, if you lose him for a significant period of time, it's going to hurt." Odor was injured while rounding second on a double. Assuming he does go on the injured list, Ha-Seong Kim -- who had been filling in at third base for Manny Machado -- would likely shift into a regular role at the keystone.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Rougned Odor: Leaves with apparent injury
Odor left Friday's game against the Cubs with an apparent lower-body injury, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. He had gone 2-for-3 with a run scored before exiting.
Odor doubled into the alley in the eighth inning, but the infielder pulled up lame as he ran the bases. Ha-Seong Kim came in as a pinch runner. For now, Odor should be considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
Padres' Rougned Odor: Goes to bench versus lefty
Odor is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Odor has been occupying a regular spot in the lineup since Manny Machado fractured his left hand May 15 and eventually landed on the injured list, but with southpaw Braxton Garrett on the bump for Miami, the lefty-hitting Odor will retreat to the bench. Jake Cronenworth will fill in at the keystone for Odor, who had gone 6-for-26 with three home runs, a double, a stolen base, 10 RBI and five runs while starting in each of the past six games....

It's just the 29-year-old's second homer of the season, although both have come in his last 10 games -- a stretch in which Odor is batting .360 (9-for-25) with two doubles, a steal, four runs and seven RBI.
