MLB Spring Training Player Spotlight: Hector Olivera – The Atlanta Braves rookie third baseman is lighting up MLB Spring Training down in the Florida Grapefruit League. In ten games he is hitting .438 with an on-base-percentage of .441.
Olivera is no spring chicken though. He was part of the Cuban National Team that won the Gold Medal at the 2008 Olympics. The 30-year old is showing that he can play in the MLB and will be a welcome addition to the Atlanta Brave’s lineup.
Hector Olivera’s pre-rookie cards debuted last year in 2015 Topps baseball card products. His first officially licensed MLB rookie cards, including autographs, will debut in several 2016 Topps baseball card sets including:
- 2016 Topps Heritage (In stores now!)
- 2016 Topps Museum Collection
- 2016 Bowman Baseball
- 2016 Bowman Inception
- 2016 Topps Strata
Chances are his inclusion in other products will be announced throughout the 2016 MLB season.
