    • Olson hit .200 (5-for-25) with two doubles, one home run, four RBI, nine strikeouts, five walks and four runs across 11 Cactus League games before spring training was suspended. The slugging first baseman's spring average left plenty to be desired, but it was obviously a small sample. The 26-year-old enjoyed the best season of his career in 2019, a campaign that included a new career high of 36 home runs. As good as Olson was last season, Jessica Kleinschmidt of NBC Sports Bay Area reports Olson could still have room for even more improvement, noting multiple baseball metrics sites had projected him to exceed last season's homer total in a full 2020 season.

    • Olson went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run, a walk and two runs overall in a Cactus League split-squad loss to the Reds on Friday. The slugging first baseman took Wade Miley deep in the first inning with Matt Chapman aboard for his first spring round tripper. Olson is hitting just .167 despite the homer, which was only his third hit through nine spring contests. However, there is no concern about the 25-year-old, who set career highs in multiple categories in 2019, including in home runs (36) and RBI (91).

    • Olson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The 25-year-old will step out of the starting nine for the first time since early June, a stretch of 98 consecutive starts in which he posted a .927 OPS with 27 homers. Seth Brown will start at first base Sunday as Olson rests up for Wednesday's Wild Card Game.

    • Olson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Friday. Olson unloaded a 370-foot shot to left with Matt Chapman aboard in the seventh inning to erase a 2-1 deficit at the time. The homer was Olson's first since Sept. 17, but he's still slugged an impressive nine overall during the month, which has helped lead to an impressive 23 RBI across his last 24 games.

    • Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's victory over the Royals. Olson got Oakland on the board in the seventh inning with a massive 450-foot solo shot to center field. The long ball was his fourth in the last six games and eighth overall in September. Olson missed all of April with a hand injury but has still managed to set career highs in homers (35) and RBI (86) in 118 games this season.
