Olivares was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Alec Lewis of The Athleticreports.

Olivares had seen his playing time slip in recent days and now he'll return to to Omaha for the first time since late July with Michael Taylor returning from the family medical emergency list. If Olivares doesn't return to the majors during the season's final two weeks, he'll conclude the campaign with a .224/.280/.398 slash line, five homers and 12 RBI.
