Mike Olt to see more playing time at third base
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday it's time to start playing Mike Olt at third base more often, per The Chicago Sun-Times.

"We’ve talked about gradually getting him into that role," Renteria said. "Do I plan on playing him [Wednesday]? Yes.

"Everything’s very calculated. So I’m going to throw him out there and let him run with it a little bit. We’re still measuring everything; we’re still trying to be kind of guarded, but he’ll be in there (Wednesday) again."

Olt is welcoming the opportunity for more playing time at third base.

"That’d be great," Olt said of getting regular playing time. "I definitely did a lot of work to get myself ready. I definitely feel I’m ready for the task and can build off the last couple games and go from there."

Mike Olt hits fourth homer Tuesday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs third baseman Mike Olt continued his all-or-nothing season Tuesday, clubbing his fourth home run of the season in a 9-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

Olt went 1 for 4 in the game and struck out twice, giving him eight strikeouts in the last four games. Still, he clubbed a three-run shot in the fifth inning to provide what would ultimately be the winning margin in the game.

Olt is hitting just .195, but is providing the kind of power that became his calling card in the minors. Of his eight hits in 16 games, four are home runs and five are for extra bases. He has a .195/.250/.512 line in 41 at-bats.

Mike Olt produces first multi-RBI game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Mike Olt snapped out of a season-opening slump Wednesday, clubbing his second home run of the season in a 7-5 win over the Pirates.

Olt doubled his hit total for the season with one game, going 2 for 5 in the win, with both hits driving in runs. He hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning to give the Cubs their first lead, and then provided the ultimate winning margin with a sixth-inning RBI single.

Olt is hitting just .158 through the first eight games of the season, but has two home runs and four RBI.

Mike Olt returns Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs third baseman Mike Olt has returned to the starting lineup Saturday.

Olt was held out of Friday's game due to concerns about his shoulder. The club doesn't want Olt to over-exert himself early. It doesn't seem to be a serious concern, however, and Olt will get right back into the lineup Saturday. He will hit sixth.

Precaution over shoulder keeps Mike Olt out on Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Rick Renteria plans on easing Cubs promising third baseman Mike Olt into the lineup as an every-day player to take it easy on a shoulder that experienced soreness this spring, per ESPN.

Renteria cited slick conditions at Wrigley Field for holding Olt out of the lineup Friday against Philadelphia. Olt slugged his first major league home run Thursday against Pittsburgh.
