  • Braves' Matt Olson: Crushes another homer

    Olson went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Olson opened the scoring with a two-out homer in the first inning. The first baseman had been rather unlucky in the power department early in the season, but he's turned it around in July with nine homers through 25 games this month. For the season, he has 21 long balls, 67 RBI, 48 runs scored, 35 doubles and a .253/.340/.503 slash line through 102 contests.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Stays hot

    Olson went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run Wednesday against the Phillies.

    Olson accounted for Atlanta's only offense by going yard in the sixth inning to tally his 20th homer of the season. He has gone deep seven times in his last 12 starts, also collecting 17 RBI and nine runs scored in that span. Overall, he owns a .252/.339/.499 across 439 plate appearances on the season.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Connects on 19th homer

    Olson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Phillies.

    Olson's fifth-inning long ball gave Atlanta a 5-0 lead that provided more than enough cushion for rookie starting pitcher Spencer Strider, who yielded one run over six innings before getting pulled from the contest. In his first season with Atlanta, Olson has seen his batting average slip from his final year in Oakland, but he's more or less maintained his power production. He's now up to 19 home runs and has already matched his career-high total from last season with 35 doubles, which leads the majors. Olson will start at first base and bat third in Wednesday's series finale.

    Olson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-1 win over the Angels.

The All-Star break did nothing to cool down the first baseman -- Olson's gone yard five times as part of a seven-game hitting streak, boosting his slash line on the season to .255/.341/.495 with 18 homers and 62 RBI through 95 contests.

He is now slashing .251/.353/.468 in 2022 compared to his .252/.348/.506 career line. The homers were Olson's first since June 12 and represented his first multiple-HR game of the season.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Perfect at the plate

    Olson went 3-for-3 with three doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

    Olson picked up a run on a Travis d'Arnaud homer in the first inning, then sent Austin Riley home on a double in the fifth.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Mashes eighth homer

    Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

    The first baseman gave Atlanta an insurance run in the eighth inning, taking Chase De Jong deep for his eighth homer of the year. Olson has begun to pick up the pace at the plate, slashing .276/.333/.534 over his last 14 games with six doubles, three home runs and 15 RBI.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Pummels three-run home run

    Olson went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and a walk in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Rockies.

    Olson took advantage of the altitude, taking Rockies starter Ryan Feltner deep to center field in the second inning. While he's just 4-for-18 in his last four games, Olson has driven in six runs in that span. The first baseman is slashing .255/.363/.466 with seven homers, 28 RBI, 22 runs scored and 23 doubles through 55 contests. His .211 ISO is the lowest it's been since 2018, but he's likely been a little unlucky to see some hits fall for doubles with a 45 percent hard-hit rate that's not so far off from his 49.2 percent career mark in the category.
