Due to off days Thursday and Monday, the Athletics are able to get by with a four-man rotation temporarily, affording them the flexibility to add another bench bat for the series in a National League park. With the slow-footed Khris Davis expected to see time in the outfield this weekend, it makes sense for the Athletics to have a capable late-inning defensive replacement on hand in Bolt, who can play all three spots. The 25-year-old switch hitter may also prove to be a useful pinch-hitting option, especially while he's been wielding a hot bat in the Pacific Coast League. Through 22 games with Las Vegas, Bolt was slashing .325/.400/.675 with six home runs and three stolen bases.
