Edward Olivares
25-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Kansas City Royals AAA
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Olivares made the jump from Double-A, debuting the first weekend of the 2020 season. While Olivares doubled in his first game and launched his first career home run in early August, he also struck out in 38.9% of his PA in a Padres uniform. The Padres traded Olivares in late August along with a PTBNL in exchange for Trevor Rosenthal -- not a case of San Diego souring on the outfielder as much as it was a straightforward reflection of how MLB front offices view Olivares. He has some power and good speed and is much better at making contact than he showed during his time in San Diego -- indeed his strikeout rate dropped to 16.9% following the trade -- but he's not a big walker and he's not a particularly good defender even with that speed. The Royals are suddenly pushing to compete and playing time is not assured, but Olivares will have every chance to secure a starting job in spring training. Read Past Outlooks

Olivares was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Olivares played a fairly considerable role on the big-league club in 2020, racking up 101 plate appearances across 31 games while hitting .240/.267/.375. However, after the team acquired Andrew Benintendi, Michael Taylor and Jarrod Dyson this offseason, his chances to earn regular playing time shrunk. Despite the demotion, Olivares should have the chance to return to the majors to contribute at various times throughout the campaign.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Padres opted to protect Olivares from the Rule 5 draft in 2018 and he rewarded that optimism by logging a 123 wRC+ with 18 home runs and 35 steals (on 45 attempts) in the Texas League. He turns 24 in March and only had a 23.0 Hard% in 2019, so there is reason for pessimism regarding his ability to hit enough to be an everyday outfielder on a team with San Diego's depth. Olivares is an above-average runner, but improved to just passable in the outfield at Double-A. He has enough arm for right field, so he is versatile enough to handle all three spots, but lacks the instincts to be a huge net positive in the field. This means his bat probably has to be at least league average. He doesn't strike out too much (17.8 K%) and hit line drives at a 25.5% clip while using the whole field. He currently trails Taylor Trammell in the pecking order, but could pass him if he keeps making improvements.
