3 San Diego Padres offseason additions we should already be concerned about
3) San Diego Padres outfielder Rougned Odor has been a non-factor
Unlike Carpenter and Wacha, Rougned Odor wasn't guaranteed a spot on the Padres roster. He was signed to a minor league deal and made the team due to the bevy of injuries this team has dealt with.
Odor has played most of the time against right-handers and has just three hits in 26 at-bats. He's struck out 10 times and does not have a home run yet.
Odor is easier to cut than Wacha or Carpenter, but there's a chance Odor lasts the year in a utility role. He's been playing right field with Fernando Tatis Jr. still out, while also having the ability to play second and third base.
While versatility is always great, Odor hasn't really hit at all since his 30 home run season back in 2019. A .196/.268/.368 slash line is not good, and he really shouldn't be on a team trying to win the World Series.
Odor has looked uncompetitive at the plate as a Padre, and the leash shouldn't be long. When guys like Tatis, David Dahl, and Adam Engel return from the Injured List, my hope is Odor is DFA'd.
