Myself and several other like to joke about Falvey and Levine having stronger interest in FAs that have at some point had Cleveland and Arlington mailing addresses, but (if true) this takes the cake as the most ridiculous.
Mike Olt, of the Had a .758 OPS in AAA Last Year Olts, has apparently signed a minor league contract with the team.
I understand minor league depth signings, but the guy hasn't sniffed the bigs since '15, and his 3 MiLB seasons since then haven't been remotely good.
There has to be better depth out there, isn't there?
The boys know there's, like, a bunch of other teams, right?
On the bright side, the same Baseball Prospectus 2012 Top 101 Prospects for 2012 that ranked Robert Grossman at #76, had Olt at #45.
