10th Round, 297th Overall – JB Olson, RHP, University of Oklahoma 

JB Olson was a solid relief option for the Oklahoma Sooners. And hopefully the same will hold true for the White Sox. The right hander finished 5-1 and had eight saves. He also sported a very solid 1.99 ERA in 31 appearances this season.

In 2016, he went 1-1 with a 2.03 ERA in 29 appearances. One concern is the opponents batting average against him. In 2016, opponents hit .234 against him. However, this year it increased dramatically to .263. That is something he’ll need to work on to be successful at the major league level.
