Dempter and Olt make Rangers Debut
Tonight the Rangers debut two new players, 1 is a high profile free agent, the other is a high profile top minor league prospect. The Rangers wanted to trade for a top pitcher, but refused to trade two minor leaguers to do it. Texas was able to land Dempster without giving up either top prospect, and now one of them will be in the line up for Dempster’s first start in Texas. Mike Olt will start at 1st base, where the Rangers are hoping he brings his Texas League leading Home Runs to a lineup that could sure use it.
