Cubs | Mike Olt optioned

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 17:42:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) has been activated from the 60-day disabled list and optioned to Class AAA Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Olt began the season as the Cubs' regular third baseman but the combination of a poor start at the plate prior to going on the DL (2-for-15) and the emergence of Kris Bryant ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) resulted in him losing his job. Feel free to drop him in all fantasy formats.

Cubs | Mike Olt headed to DL

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 19:32:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) will be placed on the disabled list after an MRI revealed a fractured wrist Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: Olt was already a shaky play at FantasyScore because of his poor batting average, and he heads to the disabled list just in time for Kris Bryant to be called up. If Bryant performs at the level he is expected to, Olt may not have many at-bats waiting when he recovers.

Cubs | Mike Olt remains out

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:23:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) is still not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 15. 2B Arismendy Alcantara is starting at third base and is hitting seventh in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Jason Marquis.

Fantasy Tip: Alcantara ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) brings an exciting mix of power and speed as an infielder, and he should be considered a nice sleeper choice at second base at FantasyScore against Marquis.

Cubs | Mike Olt remains out Tuesday

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 15:15:12 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and hitting ninth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Olt's injury doesn't seem to be too serious, and he was feeling better Tuesday, so he could be back in the starting lineup tomorrow. Herrera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't recommended for FantasyScore lineups, even against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:43:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Jonathan Herrera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will fill in at third base Monday night and hit ninth in the batting order. Herrera should be considered a very weak FantasyScore option.

Cubs | Mike Olt likely to win 3B job

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:35:23 -0800

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt is the front-runner to win the third base job over 3B Kris Bryant to start the season. However, Bryant hit .325/.438/.661 with 43 homers in the minors last year, and he'll likely be starting in Chicago by midseason or season if he keeps that up. Olt, though, saw marked improvement late last year and could re-establish himself as a lineup fixture this spring. 2B Arismendy Alcantara could also see time at the hot corner. The Cubbies have said they do not want to rush things with Bryant.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that Bryant is likely to start 2015 in the minors again, he'll probably continue to be overvalued by fantasy baseball drafters. For that fact alone, Olt could be a nice sleeper target in NL-only leagues for his power stroke, but he'll need to make much more contact to last in the starting lineup and hold off Bryant.
