ARLINGTON, Texas — Second baseman Rougned Odor is back in the lineup for the New York Yankees.

Odor was activated from the injured list and started Tuesday’s game against his former team, the Texas Rangers.

He missed 12 games with a left knee sprain after a collision at home plate against the Astros on May 4.

Odor hit a single in his first at-bat and had a nifty stop to start a double play in the field. He played each of his first seven big league seasons with the Rangers.

They designated him for assignment before the season, and then traded him to New York.
