Something completely out of the ordinary happened Monday at Globe Life Park, where the Texas Rangers actually received a positive medical update on one of their injured players.

An MRI exam on second baseman Rougned Odor’s right shoulder showed no structural damage a day after he suffered a mild sprain as he jammed it while scrambling back to first base on a pickoff attempt.

Odor hit in the cages and was available to pinch-hit in the finale of the four-game series against Cleveland. He will attempt to throw today and could be back in the field during the two-game interleague series against Miami.

“It was good news,” manager Ron Washington said. “When I left the ballpark yesterday, he was smiling.”

Odor said that he did the same thing to the same shoulder three years ago and missed only a couple days. That’s his expectation this time.

“It was nothing serious,” said Odor, who is batting .290 (20 for 69) since making his major-league debut last month. “I know how to deal with it.”
