COLLEGE STATION, TX - Some of the top underclass talent from South Texas converged on the campus of Texas A&M for the PBR Underclass Games. This week, we shared our analysis of each player based off of positions. To finish our coverage, here is the last installment of the Top Prospects with of the top players from the South Texas Underclass Games.






OF / PEARLAND, TX / 2020

Athletic frame with strength, 5-foot-9, 165-pounds.  The right-handed hitter has looseness and quickness throughout his swing, and hammered balls to left field in BP, posted 86 mph exit velo off the tee.  Smajstrla has loose rhythm in his hands in an athletic stance, has a simple load back with his body and his hands, he walks away from his hands to create separation during a short stride, has a quick and tight turn in his hips, and his quick hands deliver the barrel with a loose barrel path through the zone.  In the outfield he closed ground aggressively and moves through the play with fluidity, a clean transfer, and showed arm strength at 88 mph with both carry and accuracy to the dish. Ran a 7.41 60-yard dash. In the game, he hammered a double to center field, and had another hit that fell in front of the center fielder.

Strong 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame with a thick lower-half. The right-handed hitter has an easy setup at the plate, as his hands have some wiggle. A short stride and an up-and-back load are followed by a compact, smooth swing with some pop. Olson has loose wrists, a whippy bat that creates good carry (91 mph exit velocity) without tremendous effort, good feel for the barrel, keeps his head centered and is strong, balanced at the point of contact. In the outfield, he plays low through the baseball, utilizes a solid crow-hop and high ¾ arm swing and comes up firing at a max velocity of 85 mph. On the mound, the left-handed pitcher gathers himself with a repeatable, tall-and-fall delivery as he clears his front side well. Showed good command to both sides of the plate with a 81-82 mph fastball. Flashed a 72-74 mph with 11/5 shape, even creating a strikeout. Also mixed in a 74 mph changeup.
