  • Braves' Matt Olson: Goes yard twice in win

    Olson went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Phillies.

    He went back-to-back with Travis d'Arnaud in the first inning off Zack Wheeler to give Atlanta an early 2-0 lead, but it was Olson's blast off Andrew Bellatti in the eighth that provided the decisive run. The first baseman has two two-homer games in the last week, but they are his only long balls since June 13. On the season, Olson is batting .253 with 12 home runs and 42 RBI through 75 contests.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Hits two home runs

    Olson went 2-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI in a 12-10 loss to the Giants on Tuesday.

    Olson launched his ninth and 10th home runs of the season in an offensive onslaught. The three-run and two-run shots upped his season-long RBI total to 37. Olson has been performing in line with his career numbers since coming over to Atlanta from the Athletics in the offseason. 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. Olson had gone hitless in his last two games, but he was perfect at the plate Sunday. The first baseman has a June batting average of .217, but the 3-for-3 outing helped raise his season batting average to .251.

  • 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.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Shows power in loss

    Olson went 4-for-5 with a home run, two doubles and four RBI in Tuesday's 8-7 extra-inning loss to Arizona.

    Olson put Atlanta ahead 3-2 in the fourth inning with a two-run homer, followed by a two-run double in the fifth. The first baseman has four multi-hit efforts in his last 13 games, going 15-for-49 (.306) in that span. The slugger is up to a solid .263/.373/.484 slash line with seven homers, 21 RBI, 21 runs scored and 23 doubles through 50 contests.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: On base three times in loss

    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.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Hits solo homer

    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+.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Slugs third homer

    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.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Drives in two Friday

    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.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Continues raking Monday

    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.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Clubs second homer

    Olson went 3-for-4 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Padres.

    He took Nick Martinez deep in the fifth inning, Olson's second homer of the season. The first baseman has five multi-hit performances through his first 10 games with Atlanta and has an 11:8 BB:K, resulting in a .412/.556/.676 slash line, but Olson curiously isn't driving in many runs -- his only RBI so far have come on his two solo shots.
