    • Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Red Sox. His sixth-inning blast off Eduardo Rodriguez capped the scoring for the A's. Olson had gone just 3-for-26 (.115) in the eight games since his last long ball, but on the season, the first baseman is still hitting a solid .267 with eight homers and 22 RBI through 32 contests.

    • Olson went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run, a double and an additional run scored in Sunday's win over the Orioles. Olson made a surprising return to the lineup after missing three games earlier this week due to an eye contusion, but he saw the ball well Sunday and recorded his fifth multi-hit game over his last eight contests. The 27-year-old is hitting .352 (12-for-34) with three homers and seven RBI during that eight-game stretch.

    • Olson (eye) will start at first base and bat cleanup Sunday against the Orioles. Manager Bob Melvin said a day earlier that Olson would likely remain out through the weekend due to an eye contusion, but the 27-year-old's vision has apparently improved enough for him to check back into the lineup for the series finale. With Olson back in action after missing the previous three games, Seth Brown will move back into a reserve role.

    • Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that he would "doubt" Olson (eye) returns to the lineup Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Olson has already been ruled out for Saturday's matchup against Baltimore, but he was able to take some groundballs and take some swings in the cage prior to the game. If Olson is held out Sunday, Seth Brown or Mitch Moreland could fill in at first base once again.
