Mike Olt (TEX No. 2): MLB.com's No. 22 prospect slugged his second Cactus League homer of the year as Texas rolled past Milwaukee on Tuesday. The right fielder -- who also scored twice and drew a walk -- smacked a two-run shot to left field off southpaw Travis Webb in the eighth inning. A third baseman seeing time in the outfield to help his chances of landing a spot on the Opening Day roster, Olt is batting .160 with five RBIs this spring.

Top Braves prospect Julio Teheran lowered his Grapefruit League ERA to 1.29 in four appearances after pitching five no-hit innings as Atlanta ripped St. Louis, 12-3, on Tuesday afternoon. Teheran, who began the 2012 campaign as MLB.com's top prospect but struggled to a 5.08 ERA at Triple-A Gwinnett, seems to have recovered his form in Spring Training: he's allowed just two runs on four hits over 14 innings.
