DrB's 2016 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #45 Deiyerbert Bolivar

Deiyerbert Bolivar, LHP.  DOB:  4/3/1996.  5'11", 155 lbs.

2014 DSL:  7-1, 1.27, 64 IP, 9.42 K/9, 2.81 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.47.
2015 AZL:  2-1, 2.08, 30.1 IP, 8.90 K/9, 4.15 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.38.

If nothing else, this kid is in the running for most awesome name in the organization.  Signed out of Venezuela in 2013.  His pro debut in the DSL was successful.  He got a late start in 2015 appearing in his first game on July 24.  He started off slowly, building his innings.  In his final two starts, he went 5 innings in each game with a total of just 1 run allowed on 9 hits with 14 K's against just 2 BB's.

Independent scout Chris Kusoliak tweeted that Bolivar's FB sat 89-91 MPH and touched 92.  There is a nice pic of him in his windup on Fourseam Images.  I don't have much more than that.  His small size makes his odds a bit long, but the numbers look good so far.  I and anxious to see where the Giants place him in 2016 and how he performs.  They will likely try to prevent too big an innings jump, so Short Season is a possibility.  His ceiling is probably back end MLB starter vs left specialist.  ETA is, oh, maybe 2020?
