  • Olson went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Wednesday's extra-innings loss to the Brewers. The first baseman has stumbled to a .203 batting average through 16 games in May (12-for-59), but Olson is still reaching base at a .338 clip thanks to a strong 16.9 percent walk rate, and eight of his 12 hits have gone for extra bases (six doubles and two homers). Expect more hits to start falling in for the 28-year-old as the weather continues to warm up.

  • Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Padres. Olson opened the scoring with a solo shot off Sean Manaea in the bottom of the first inning. The homer was his fourth of the season, putting him on pace for just 19, but his overall .262/.373/.468 slash line is good for a strong 136 wRC+.

  • Olson went 1-for-2 with two walks and a three-run home run in a 5-4 loss to the Mets during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. The first baseman took David Peterson deep in the fifth inning to get Atlanta within a run, but the offense went cold the rest of the way. Olson snapped a 14-game homer drought with the blast, but on the season he still carries a solid .286/.400/.484 slash line with three home runs and 10 RBI through 25 contests.

  • Olson went 1-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Friday's win over the Marlins. After crossing the plate with the game's first run in the bottom of the first inning, Olson gave his squad some insurance in the seventh with a two-run double. The first baseman is quickly making Atlanta fans feel better about the departure of Freddie Freeman, as Olson is slashing .389/.500/.630 with two homers, four RBI and 10 runs through his first 15 games of 2022.

  • Olson went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's loss to the Dodgers. While Freddie Freeman was busy slugging his first homer with Los Angeles, his replacement at first base for Atlanta was having a pretty good night of his own. Olson has reeled off three straight multi-hit performances, boosting his slash line through 12 games to .452/.566/.714, and while his only two RBI on the season have come on his own solo shots, it's only a matter of time until those hits turn into bigger production.
