RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Olt wasted away on the Texas bench following a late-season callup, partly due to injury and partly because "That's the way baseball go" was at the helm. He skipped Triple-A Round Rock entirely, blasting his way through the Texas League at a .288/.398/.579 clip. Adrian Beltre isn't going anywhere any time soon, so Olt could inherit the first base role full-time if Texas elects to keep Ian Kinsler at second base and start Jurickson Profar in the minors to begin the year.

2012

Olt was sidelined two months with a broken collarbone, but he showed good power and patience in his first full season after being drafted in 2010. He managed 15 doubles, 14 homers and 48 walks in just 240 at-bats at High-A Myrtle Beach, though the 70 strikeouts are a bit troubling. His Arizona Fall League season earned him a spot on the AFL Top Prospects team, as his .349/.433/.764 line was fueled by 13 homers in just 106 at-bats. Strikeouts were again a problem however, as he fanned 36 times against just 15 walks, which could lead to some struggles upon his initial exposure at Double-A Frisco. The power projects at the major league level if he can make consistent contact.
