    • Olson went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's 4-1 win over the Rangers. Olson's September tear now has him at 13 home runs and 22 RBI with plenty of opportunities to add to those jaw-dropping numbers before season's end. The slugging rookie has gone deep in six of his last seven contests, although the round trippers have served as his only hits over that span. He also has only one other extra-base hit outside of the home runs this month.

    • Olson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, two walks and two runs during Monday's win over Detroit. The surging slugger now has a homer in four consecutive games and 14 over his past 20 contests. Olson boasts a monster 1.132 OPS with 33 RBI and 25 runs through just 36 games since returning to the big club Aug. 8. While the 23-year-old first baseman is almost certainly overachieving right now, his heater could extend through the end of the regular season.

    • Athletics' Matt Olson: Keeps on mashing in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Olson, who went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Phillies, smacked three homers overall in the three-game weekend series. Olson's torrid September evokes memories of the effort that fellow rookie Cody Bellinger put together earlier this season, as he now has 10 round trippers and 17 RBI over just 16 games. He has six homers in his last eight games, though he's mostly gotten on base via single otherwise, as the 23-year-old counts a pair of two-baggers as his only other extra-base hits for the month.
