Minor League Update: Games of June 6

by Kevin Goldstein

Mike Olt, 3B, Rangers (Double-A Frisco): 1-for-4, HR (18), R, 3 RBI, BB, 2 K.

Olt is the hottest hitter in the minors, slugging seven home runs in his last five days to up his triple-slash line to .316/.416/.641, and it's time to start figuring out what to do with him. He's clearly not getting to Texas at the hot corner with Adrian Beltre signed long term, and while he's playing first base once in a while, it's certainly not enough to think that's where the Rangers see his path at this time. Although with the recent struggles of Mitch Moreland, it's at least something to think about.
