Rangers optioned INF/OF Mike Olt, OF Engel Beltre, LHP Jeff Beliveau and RHP Wilmer Font to Triple-A Round Rock; reassigned RHPs Colin Balester, Evan Meek and Yoshinori Tateyama, LHP Neal Cotts, Cs Juan Apodaca and Jose Felix, and INFs Brandon Snyder and Brandon Allen to minor league camp.

The Rangers cut a total of 12 players from camp Tuesday morning. Olt is the biggest name here, though he batted just .194 (6-for-31) with two homers and 12 strikeouts in 19 games this spring. There isn't a place for him in the Rangers' lineup right now, so he'll continue to get regular playing time in Triple-A. Fantasy owners should monitor his progress in the minors.
