Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said he has received many trade inquiries on Mike Olt, but is not motivated to move him.

The perception is that Olt is blocked at third base by Adrian Beltre, but the Rangers still view him as an important part of their future with Nelson Cruz, Michael Young and David Murphy all set to become free agents following the 2013 season. The 24-year-old batted .152 (5-for-33) in his first cup of coffee in the big leagues this past season and dealt with a nagging foot injury down the stretch.
