Oliveros, who missed most of last season while coming back from Tommy John surgery, hit 95 mph on the radar gun in a spring outing last week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He's thrown two scoreless innings this spring.
Oliveros is a fringe candidate for the fifth starter role, but he more likely needs time at Triple-A to prove he's back from surgery. Oliveros has had decent strikeout rates in his minor league career, but has struggled with his control. He could get a chance at the big league rotation later this summer if he's healthy and can reduce his walk rate.
