    Olenek is a Swiss Army knife of a player whose value is in part based around versatility more than defensive excellence at any one position. He's athletic and he's an above-average runner who can play all three outfield spots, second or third base, and even shortstop in a pinch. He played all six of the aforementioned positions at Ole Miss. If Olenek was just versatile, it wouldn't really matter, but he also has an above-average hit tool thanks to excellent hand-eye coordination. As of mid-May, Olenek led the Southeastern Conference with a .396 batting average. Olenek is officially 6-foot-5, 180 pounds, but scouts say they believe he's closer to 200 pounds right now and won't be surprised to see him add another 15-20 pounds as a pro. That frame leads them to believe his currently below-average power can improve as well.
