Rangers | Mike Olt fixes flaw in swing

Texas Rangers OF Manny Ramirez helped notice a flaw in 3B Mike Olt's swing at Triple-A Round Rock in the last few days. Olt has since fixed his mechanics and went 2-for-3 with two hard hit balls Sunday, July 7. Before that, Olt was in a 1-for-22 slump. "He saw that I was late and dropping my hands," said Olt, who made his debut with the Rangers last season playing in 16 games. "We went to the cages and I worked with him."

Fantasy Tip: It's been a frustrating season for Olt to this point, thanks to an early-season injury and vision problems. If he can pick it up with the stick in the second half, he's a realistic option to come up and help the Rangers as they push toward the playoffs. Stashing him in deep AL leagues isn't a bad idea.
