Rangers 2B Rougned Odor left last night’s game with an injured hamstring. This is the second time that Odor has missed time with this same injury. Look for the team to give him a few days off, but most likely he will be placed on the 10-day DL. If that happens, Jurickson Profar is expected to start in his place.
Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo will be placed on the 10-day DL with a back injury. The original plan was for Rizzo to play on Wednesday, but with the weather as bad as it is, it looks like the Cubs want to give Rizzo another few days to rest up. His DL stint will be backdated to last Friday, so expect Rizzo to be back at some point in the middle of next week. Super fill-in Ben Zobrist will get most of the action at 1B until Rizzo returns.
Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is going on the DL and is expected to miss about two weeks with a small fracture in his left ankle. This seems a bit conservative as I would expect closer to three weeks. This is a significant loss for the Red Sox as Bogaerts was mashing the ball and batting fifth in their lineup. Look for Brock Holt to get most of the playing time with Bogaerts out.
