Official Scouting Report

  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

12/27/2018 - Baseball Factory Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18) Oliver is a coachable SS/RHP prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Christmas Camp & Tournament at Pirate City. In the field, Oliver takes a good first step and displays active footwork. He gets into an athletic position and fields the ball out in front of his body. He makes a quick exchange and gets rid of the ball quickly, working to keep his throws accurate to his target. Oliver can improve defensively by long tossing to build up his arm strength. At the plate, Oliver sets up in a tall stance and takes a short stride. He gets into a simple load and rotates his core well, leading to consistent contact and line drives. Getting his stride foot down sooner can help Oliver improve as a hitter. On the mound, Oliver gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He works with a loose arm and stays inline towards the plate, finishing with a controlled landing. Oliver shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 81mph with tailing action. Breaking ball sits from 67-68mph with 10-4 break. Changeup sits at 71mph as he throws with deceptive arm speed. Extending through his release more can help Oliver improve as a pitcher. Overall, Oliver is a solid prospect who has the potential to further develop his skills on the field.

09/16/2018 - College PREP - Indianapolis, IN Oliver is an athletic and talented 2020 2-way prospect. At SS, Oliver is on time with his prep step, he anticipates the ball off the bat, and funnels the ball into his body. He has a clean exchange and throws from multiple arm angles. At the plate, Oliver starts in a squared stance and loads his hands back into the drive position. He attacks the ball with his lower half, and stays balanced through contact. On the bump, Oliver gathers over the rubber, has a loose arm action, and attacks the bottom half of the zone. He sinks the fastball at 81 mph, and throws his slider/ curveball down in the zone. Oliver will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.

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 (tools), 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, using the scale below. However, grades 10-18 are not available for use with High School players (ages 14-18), while grades 55-70 are not available for use with Pre High School players (ages 12-14). These instances are marked as "--- N/A ---" in the "Description" fields below.
