Rangers 1B/3B Prospect Makes Debut

Mike Olt – 1B/3B – Rangers

mike oltMike Olt has been called up from AA Frisco where he batted .288 with 82 RBIs and a league-lead 28 home runs.

Texas manager Ron Washington said he will play Olt mainly against lefties at first base or designated hitter, but he also will give him opportunities to play third and face right-handers on days that Adrian Beltre serves as the DH.

Sounds like he will be a bit of trouble for a fantasy manager because he won’t play everyday, or at least not right away. He is worth the risk if you can deal with his situation early on, because getting a young power hitter in the Texas summer is a good thing for a fantasy team.
