Olacio will be an intriguing prospect to follow over the next couple of years. He signed with the Sox back in 2010 for $125,000. His measurables are through the roof. As a 19-year old, he possesses a great build at 6'7/230+. Already his fastball reaches 94-95 MPH.
Olacio, like just about every other 19-year old, is extremely raw and it shows in his numbers. Last year with Bristol and Kannapolis, he had a ERA north of 5.00, a 1.708 WHIP, a nice SO/9 at 8.3, but a 6.0 BB/9 rate. Obviously those stats aren't good, but don't pay too much attention to them. The potential is there and Olacio has plenty of time/room to improve his command.
