Matt Olson is a 2015 RHP/1B/3B with a 6-4 195 lb. frame from Mableton, GA who attends Whitefield Academy. Tall, slender young build, very projectable. High hand delivery, extended 3/4's arm slot, some drift to release point, fast paced medium arm action, lands closed and throws cross body, hips don't get opened. Mid 80's fastball, topped out at 86 mph, mostly straight. Best pitch is true slider that has sharpness and bite, hides slider well and throws it for strikes, developing change up. Getting better direction and lower half use could mean immediate velocity and fastball command improvement but is very projectable nonetheless. Has already gained 4-5 mph on his fastball and slider in the last year. Right handed hitter, long pre-loaded swing, has some bat speed, stays on plane well and squares up, solid mid field contact, has some hitting tools. Good student.
