Rangers Call Up Top Prospect
The Texas Rangers have called up elite third base prospect Mike Olt. In 95 games this year for the Double A Frisco Rough Riders Olt hit .288 with 28 home runs. He had a .398 OBP to go along with his .291 ISO power rate. Olt is a power hitting corner infielder who will most likely see time at first and at DH down the stretch for the 1st place Rangers.
For his fantasy value, Olt is one of those power hitting prospects you want to own in deep keeper and dynasty leagues. I see him profiling as a potential All Star with Ryan Zimmerman-like potential. For those reasons I think Olt is a must add in all keeper formats. For the rest of this season, I think Olt will start 2-4 games every week. He is a solid player to have on your roster if you own Evan Longoria, Pablo Sandoval or Alex Rodriguez.
