Mike Olt, Jurickson Profar Named To Futures Game Roster

Texas Rangers minor league prospects Mike Olt and Jurickson Profar were named to the Futures Game roster on Thursday

Olt is hitting .308 (78-253) with 20 home runs, 13 doubles, and 58 RBI in 67 games for Frisco (AA) this season.

Profar has batted .318 (77-242) his last 61 contests since April 14. ESPN's Keith Law says Olt is one of the players he sees making his way up to the major's pretty soon:

Mike Olt, 3B, Texas Rangers (Double-A Frisco): With Mitch Moreland on the DL, there would appear to be an opening for Olt at the big league level, especially since third base is rather occupied at the moment. As classy as he may be, Michael Young isn't the answer at first.
