Official Scouting Report

  • OF/LHPPosition Projection

11/11/2021 - Baseball Factory Fall Select Tournament at Pirate City Oliver continues to shine in his baseball abilities. He did show on the mound for the first time at the event. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind but needs to play through, creating momentum to his target. He utilizes his foot quickness in covering a lot of ground in the OF. At the plate, he shows an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. On the mound, fastball showed a range of 67-71 mph. Breaking ball displays 12/6 shape with downward action. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he has a positive attitude, works hard, and is very coachable.

09/19/2021 - National Evaluation and Tryout - Beverly Hills (Detroit), MI Oliver continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities. Foot speed has improved as he ran his best 60 time to date, now a 7.19 runner. In the OF, defensive abilities are now well above average as he takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he reads balls off bat and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through an athletic setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently.

06/21/2021 - All-In Membership - Beverly Hills (Detroit), MI Oliver is a OF in the class of 2024.In the outfield, he shows quick feet and the ability to get to balls on both sides of him. Gets good reads off the bat and creates good angles to work through the baseball. Does a good job of keeping his momentum working to throw. At the plate, he does a good job of keeping a flat bat throughout the hitting zone. Shows a good load and works to get his hands loaded with the knob towards the catcher. Consistently found barrels and worked through the opposite field. Oliver is a good prospect with 3 years left of high school that we expect to continue to develop as he gets older.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
