Notes

4/21/22

Uncommitted. Physically mature, 6-foot, 190-pound frame, strong lower-half with equally distributed strength. The freshman southpaw started on the mound for No. 5 St. Laurence, impressing with a high-level fastball and off-speed to pair. His arm works with a short circle out of the glove into a ¾ slot, playing quickly to release. Down the mound, Olson moves with a somewhat up-tempo pace into his leg-lift, dropping slightly into his back knee from balance point and exploding down the mound in-line with the plate. His fastball plays with effortless life out of the hand, running to his arm-side and sitting in the 84-87 mph range. His go-to secondary offering was a tight 1/7 breaking ball, thrown with intent and flashed sharp action at times, 72-73 mph. High-level 2025 arm to follow moving forward. 

2/26/22

Positional Profile: LHP
Body: 6-0, 185-pounds. Athletic build.
Delivery: Up-tempo, athletic delivery, tall and fall delivery. High leg lift, abbreviated balanced point. Strong front side. Lands front toe closed.
Arm Action: LH. Quick, clean arm action. High 3/4 slot.
FB: T85.9, 83.7-85.2 mph. Plays straight, controls the zone. T2074, 1973 average rpm.
CB: 68.7-70.4 mph. 1/7 shape, occasional depth, above-average action and feel for his age. T2109, 1999 average rpm.
CH: 73.2-74.6 mph. Slight fading action, thrown with fastball arm speed and intent to locate at bottom of the zone. T1557, 1459 average rpm.

2/26/22

Representing the Class of 2025, LHP Joey Olson (St. Laurence) showed as one of the top in attendance. At an athletic 6-foot, 185 pounds, Olson has a quick, clean arm that produced an 84-85 mph fastball that played true, flashing carry through the zone. While the secondary stuff is still developing, his arm speed and athleticism should lead to a quick transition for developing matching advanced secondary offerings.

10/17/21

Positional Profile: LHP/1B
Body: 5-11, 180-pounds. Athletic build.

Hit: LHH. Athletic setup with weight on back foot, leg-lift timing trigger into a short stride.  Quiet, calm confidence in the box. Uphill path to contact, bat head works underneath the baseball. Comfortable elevating to the opposite field.
