- The Texas Rangers don't have a place in their major league lineup for third base prospect Mike Olt, and Marc Hulet of FanGraphs.com discusses what a positional change would do to Olt's value and whether or not he may be more valuable to the Rangers playing another position or for what he would bring them in a trade. Given our shortage of quality third basemen throughout baseball and Olt's ability to remain at the position and hit for power, I'd like to see him traded and get a chance to stay at the position.
- Jonathan Schoop is the best hitting prospect remaining in the Baltimore Orioles farm system, but the jury is still out on just how well he will hit at the major league level. Ray Guilfoyle of MinorLeagueBall.com attempts to cross the divide of opinions, including one from Keith Law, who believes that Schoop can be an "impact bat." I like Schoop, but for different reasons. I don't believe in his bat quite that much, but I think he's going to hit enough to get regular playing time and think his true value will come from his defensive versatility.
