4/12/22

Olafson might be the sleeper pitcher of the year candidate here in BC this spring; as he stands at a 6-foot-1 and 175-pound frame, there is ample room for added growth and strength. Currently, Olafson FB is 85-87 with a spin rate of 2100-2250rpm with a little arm-side run. CB is an over-the-top 11-to-5 break, with a velo range of 72-74. CH is developing and would be a legitimate out-pitch to his arsenal with more depth as the CH is 73-75, a 12-14mph drop off his FB. Mechanically, Olafson generates his power through drop-drive while staying in line with his target well using a balanced square landing. Movement and velocity can easily be added with minor adjustments and focusing on nutrition and athletic strength. Lots to like and plenty of room for growth here.

Olafson is a 6-foot-1, 155 pounds right-hander who plays for the Coquitlam Reds. He throws his fastball in the 80-82 mph range, while generally relying on a curveball and changeup more often than the heater. As a young player, he will continue to develop physically, but Olafson does a good job using his lower half in his delivery already. Another two-way player from the 2022 class, the 15-year old also plays numerous different positions and has yet to find his best spot. But given his young age and the velocity already in the low 80's, with continued focus and dedication to his physical training, Olafson has the potential to be a two-way stud in the next couple of years.
