    Tall and stringy with a basketball player's build at 6-foot-5, Olmos delivers his 87-89 mph fastball toward home plate with a sidearm, buggy-whip motion. His projectable frame and loose arm action suggest Olmos will significantly increase his velocity as he fills out, and he has already touched the low 90s several times. An Arizona recruit, Olmos exhibits a fine feel for his secondary pitches. His slow curve shows sweeping movement with a hint of wiffle-ball action. He also offers a changeup that has a bit of screwball rotation. Mechanically, Olmos does an excellent job of keeping his front side closed and showing the piping on his right pant leg to the hitter as long as possible. However, in his delivery he wraps his arm and needs to get fuller extension on his finish. Also, his arm slot varies from fastball to curve, and he tips his breaking ball by "screwing in a light bulb" as he grips the ball in his glove. All of these problems should be easily correctable.
