Former UConn 3B Mike Olt is absolutely on fire. ESPN peri0dically ranks the Top 12 fantasy baseball prospects for 2012 that are currently in the minors. ESPN just released an updated list, and Mike Olt has made his debut on the list....at #6 (ahead of Trevor Bauer who is going to be an absolute stud in the majors soon). Olt is absolutely on fire in the minors and if it weren't for Beltre at 3B for the Rangers, he may already be in the MLB. Here is the blurb on Olt in the ESPN Insider piece: http://insider.espn.go.com/fantasy/baseball/flb/story?page=top12prospects120608 6. Mike Olt, 3B, Texas Rangers (Last week: unranked) Last week's stats (at Double-A Frisco): 10-for-22 (.455), 7 HR, 12 RBIs Season totals: .311-18-48 , 3 SB in 55 games Update: Arguably no prospect in baseball is as hot as Olt, whose hitting display included three consecutive two-homer games. The biggest question is where he fits in with Texas. He's certainly not going to usurp Adrian Beltre at the hot corner, and he hasn't been getting much time in at first base or left field. What he can do: There are some holes in Olt's swing, as evidenced by his 63 strikeouts in 55 games. But he has more than enough power and patience to make up for what will be merely an acceptable batting average. Last week he hit almost .500, had 7 HRs, and 12 RBIs....Wow! And he already has 18 HRs and 48 RBIs on the season. That is quite impressive! I have a feeling that Olt may be the key piece to a deadline trade this year for the Rangers to pick up some pitching and Olt may make his MLB debut later this season for whoever he is traded to (the Cubs for Dempster or the Astros for Rodriguez???). Hopefully he just takes off from there and I can finally draft a UConn playe for my fantasy baseball team again (it has been since the 1990's with Charles Nagy)! Very impressive for Mike Olt!!!!!
