BASE CAMP

  

The ‘22 two-way prospect showed off legitimate size at 6-foot-2, 203-pounds with a natural feel for his body coupled with present athleticism in his actions. The right-handed hitter starts from a square stance and uses a knee-to-knee stride to begin. Displayed a gap-to-gap approach with a solid lower half, swinging with intent during batting practice. Demonstrated comfortability lifting the ball to the pull-side with consistent contact out in front of the plate. Registered a bat exit velocity of 86 mph and ran a 7.36 60-yard dash. Played through the baseball routinely at third base with active feet and above average 88 mph arm strength across the diamond. The right-handed pitcher did not throw at the February 16th Preseason All State Southeast event due to soreness.

 

  

THE ASCENT

  

Almost a full year since we last saw him at a PBR event, Oliver improved every facet of his game dramatically. We mentioned the size earlier, but the 3B/RHP put on an upwards of 15 pounds of muscle and you can see it in the actions. The RHH increased his bat-exit velocity by 14 mph (72 mph to 86 mph) and the 3B increased his arm-strength across the diamond by 10 mph (78 mph to 88 mph) putting himself on the map as an interesting prospect to follow in his class. If that’s not enough to like, the RHP has been up to 85 mph in bullpens at Lancaster Catholic (up 9 mph) prior to this season’s postponement.


  

REACHING THE SUMMIT

        

"Already intriguing due to raw strength and stature, Oliver will need to continue refining all phases of his game to allow it to translate to game action. On the mound he has a loose, whippy arm with occasional downhill action on the fastball, but with more consistency on the offspeed, he could be a legitimate strikeout pitcher. When the control is there, he is typically in command of the game and has shown dominance on occasion with a feel for spin on a sharp two-plane breaking ball. Although his 88 mph bat-exit velocity already plays in-game, a shorter bat path to the ball will increase consistency for hard contact in the zone. The ‘22 two-way prospect should continue staying flexible and adding strength in order to maximize a body that is currently ready for the next level." 


PLAYER COMPARISON

 

*Note: Many times coaches will ask our staff "Who does he remind you of?" Player "comps" are a popular tool in the scouting/recruiting world and we have decided to add that niche to our feature articles. Sometimes it's within the physical build, the numbers, the actions or a combination of all three.
