ARLINGTON -- Rangers rookie Mike Olt ran for the first time since playing his last game on Sept. 12 against the Indians and had a positive report. Olt missed the recent road trip and has not played on the current homestand because of plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
"It feels good today," Olt said. "I did a lot yesterday. I'm not sore. I took ground balls. I jogged around."
Olt is attempting to get back on the field as the Rangers try to clinch a playoff spot and a chance to make the postseason roster looms for the 24-year-old.
Olt has made 11 starts since being called up from Double-A Frisco on Aug. 2, eight of them at first base. He gives the Rangers depth at the corner infield positions.
