Athletics' Matt Olson: Whiffs three times, but homers too
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and three strikeouts against the Astros on Wednesday.

That marks the rookie's third consecutive three-strikeout game, and he's now 5-for-32 (.156) in the majors this season. Olson has a good eye and he's flashed noteworthy power in the minors, but the 23-year-old doesn't looked well prepared for the majors just yet. However, the A's are going nowhere, so they can afford to stick with him and see if he can find a way to make more contact.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Hits first two home runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with two home runs, two walks and four RBI in Saturday's win over the White Sox.

Olson bookended Oakland's 10-run showing against James Shields and company with the first two home runs of his young career. With the A's seemingly embracing a youth movement, Olson may stick around for a while this time. He's hit second in the order in each of the team's last three games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Plates two in return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-3 with two RBI from a run-scoring groundout and a double in Thursday's 12-9 loss to the Astros. He also walked twice and scored once.

Olson celebrated a return to the big-league club by getting on base four times and notching his first two major-league hits of 2017 in the process. The 23-year-old's defensive versatility figures to afford him some playing time while fellow prospect Matt Chapman (knee) remains sidelined, giving him some much-needed seasoning against big-league arms.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Rejoining big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Athletics recalled Olson from Triple-A Nashville on Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The A's designated Stephen Vogt for assignment and put Matt Chapman (knee) on the disabled list. Olson, who has smashed 17 home runs while hitting .217/.365/.561 in 249 plate appearances, could find some work at outfield and designated hitter, with a dash of first base. He should at least minimally help AL-only and some mixed-league fantasy players for however long he has this window.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Optioned to Triple-A Nashville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson was optioned to Triple-A Nashville following Tuesday's game to make room for Wednesday's starter Daniel Gossett, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 23-year-old went 1-for-9 with an RBI, two walks and a run over 11 plate appearances across five games with the big-league club. He'll look to continue what's been a solid season at Triple-A Nashville, where he's slashed .286/.376/.582 with 15 home runs and 38 RBI.
