Plantar fasciitis to sideline Olt 10-14 days
ARLINGTON -- Rangers infielder Mike Olt will be sidelined for 10-14 days with plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation in his right heel. Olt has been bothered by the condition for the past few weeks, and he aggravated the injury running out an infield hit in the seventh inning on Wednesday night.

The Rangers aren't sure if there will be enough time for Olt to be ready for the playoffs if Texas advances to postseason.

"Everybody's healing process is different," manager Ron Washington said. "I don't know how his body heals."

Olt was called up from Double-A Frisco on Aug. 2, and had been playing mainly against left-handers. Olt is 5-for-32, and has played in just four games since Aug. 23 while dealing with the inflammation.
