Major League Baseball’s 25-and-under postseason All-Star team

Second base: Rougned Odor, Texas Rangers, current age 21.272

Regular season stats: .261/.316/.465, 16 HR, 61 RBI

Postseason stats: .278/.381/.500, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 5 R

Odor showed a lot in only five postseason games. He homered off David Price in Game 1 of the ALDS, and was the heads-up baserunner who dashed home on the controversial play in Game 5. Odor’s future is incredibly bright. In 38 fewer games this year, the 5’11, 190-pounder hit two fewer home runs than Hosmer and boasted a higher slugging percentage. The Rangers needed to send Odor to the minors for some brief seasoning earlier in the year, but there is no denying the future star power of this 21-year-old who debuted only three months after his twentieth birthday.
