FRISCO, Texas (AP) Rougned Odor's former minor league team has introduced an alcoholic energy drink it says delivers a punch.

The Double-A Frisco RoughRiders introduced ''Rougie's Red PUNCH'' on Tuesday, the same day Major League Baseball suspended the Texas Rangers second baseman eight games for punching Toronto's Jose Bautista in the jaw. Odor has appealed the penalty.

Frisco officials say the drink will be available for a limited time after the team returns home this weekend. It will contain fruit punch, an energy drink and a secret ingredient from Odor's native Venezuela, presumably the alcohol.

The drink will be mixed in a punch bowl and served in limited edition 12-ounce souvenir cups, a tribute to Odor's No. 12 jersey. It will cost $5.15, commemorating the date of Sunday's brawl.
