Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 60 | Arm: 60 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

Signed as an international free agent out of Venezuela in 2014, Olivares produced mixed results early in his career, but still made steady progress through Toronto's system. The Padres' took note of a solid 2017 campaign, in which Olivares finally tapped into his power and launched 17 home runs between Class A and Class A Advanced. They acquired him in a trade for Yangervis Solarte the following January.

Olivares' upward trend continued, as he notched a solid season with Class A Advanced Lake Elsinore before an outstanding showing in the Venezuelan Winter League. He batted .340/.404/.479 for Aragua, and when the Padres needed to protect Olivares from the Rule 5 Draft in November, they did so without hesitation, placing him on the 40-man roster.

Wiry and athletic, Olivares stands out as much for his remaining physical projection as he does for his present athleticism and tools. He combines bat speed with a short right-handed swing to produce lots of hard contact, generating good extension through the ball and driving it to all fields. Scouts believe there'll be more power to come as he continues to add strength to his lean frame. But he could use a bit more plate discipline. Olivares boasts well above-average speed on the basepaths as well as in the outfield, where he possesses the necessary range for all three positions and a strong enough arm to play right.
