Not one, but two. Odor, Fister give Rangers a double DL dosage

Rougned Odor has a Grade 1 hamstring strain that will keep him out up to three weeks, and he‘s not the only Texas Rangers player who was injured Monday and placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday.

Right-hander Doug Fister is also injured. He started against the Los Angeles Angels and was removed after five innings and only 82 pitches, an early exit that was the result of a strained right hip.

He won‘t be ready to make his next start Sunday.

Bartolo Colon will start the weekend finale at Houston, and the Rangers recalled infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa, the Rangers‘ fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft who is transitioning to catcher, from Triple A Round Rock.
