Rangers Texas Rangers Call up Mike Olt


The Texas Rangers have called up super prospect, Mike Olt. Olt was ranked the 43 best prospect in America at the start of 2012.

In Triple-A Olt was hitting .287 with 27 home runs and 81 RBIs in 94 games. It was just a matter of time before the Rangers called their top prospect up.

The Rangers have been going through a slump. Getting no production from Josh Hamilton, and their starting pitching has been bad. The Rangers hope Olt can provide a spark much like the Angels got with their 20-year-old phenom, Mike Trout, did to the Angels' offense.

Olt has been playing some outfield in the minors because he is currently blocked by All Star and Gold Glove third basemen, Adrian Beltre.

When and where this 23-year-old phenom will play still remains to be seen. One thing is for sure: It's going to be interesting to see how much of an effect Olt will have on a team that is clinging on to first and in the dead heat of a pennant race.

If Olt could be just nearly like the Trout for the Angels, the Rangers are defiantly going to be a world series team.
