24-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Pittsburgh Pirates AA
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Oliva, a plus runner, has averaged 34.5 steals (79.3% success rate) over the past two seasons and is a few good months at Triple-A away from the majors, so he is relevant in dynasty and redraft leagues. His numbers at High-A and Double-A were almost identical -- he looks like a good, not great, hitter with little power, big-time speed and a solid handle of the strike zone. That's mostly true, but he shows off 55-grade pull-side power in batting practice, so he could hit double-digit home runs over a full MLB season. Prospectors have been aware of Oliva for years, but a big Arizona Fall League performance was his coming out party. He hit .312/.413/.473 with a 19:14 K:BB and easily paced the AFL with 11 steals on 12 tries in 26 games. After playing in pitcher-friendly parks for the last two years, he was finally in a hitter's haven and it showed. With Pittsburgh rebuilding, Oliva should get a look this year. Read Past Outlooks

Oliva went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
He also took part in a double play while playing center field. Oliva has started in center almost exclusively throughout the minors. If he gets off to a hot start at Triple-A, then the team could give him a shot in the big leagues this summer. Jarrod Dyson and Jason Martin represent Oliva's main competition for center field, especially with the organization content to leave Bryan Reynolds in left. Given Oliva's strong performance at Double-A and in the Arizona Fall League, he's worth keeping an eye for a major-league debut in 2020. He's hit .275 with 69 stolen bases his last two seasons.
