Trades the past four seasons have left the Texas Rangers’ minor league cupboard without some pieces they would love to have back in a season that has been marked by the worst run on injuries in franchise history.

Mike Olt, who could provide pop at the infield corners, comes to mind. So do right-handers Tanner Roark, Justin Grimm and Kyle Hendricks.

But the cupboard wasn’t left completely bare.

Look past Triple A Round Rock, where the prospects can be counted on one hand. Double A Frisco is where the next wave resides.

There, and, thanks to all those injuries, Comerica Park.

Rookies Rougned Odor and Nick Martinez were the stars Saturday in a 12-2 victory over Detroit in a game that felt as close to perfect as the beleaguered Rangers can currently muster.

“Everyone played great,” Martinez said. “The offense came out and really attacked the starting pitcher, and we played great defense. It was just a great all-around game.”

Credit Martinez with another strike on his description of the victory.

Odor, called up from Double A earlier this month, went 4 for 5 with two triples, a double and five RBIs, and Martinez, with the Rangers for all but two weeks in April, allowed one run in six innings for his first career win.

The hits and RBIs were career highs for Odor.

Adrian Beltre and Donnie Murphy collected homers as the Rangers tallied a season-high 19 hits, and every player who recorded an at-bat collected at least one hit. The bottom three in the order — Leonys Martin, Murphy and Odor — went 8 for 12 with eight RBIs and six runs.

“They were outstanding,” manager Ron Washington said.

Other teams tried to pry away Odor, who entered the season as the Rangers’ top prospect, and Martinez last summer at the trade deadline. Jurickson Profar, whose injury allowed Odor to make his major league debut, was the only position player sought after more than Odor, and Martinez’s availability ranked behind C.J. Edwards and Luke Jackson.

The Rangers are thrilled to have kept them, along with another Double A call-up, infielder Luis Sardinas. More are closing in on big-league service time.

“There’s a lot of great players down there that are just scratching at the door,” Martinez said.
