Athletics' Matt Olson: Makes surprise return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson (eye) will start at first base and bat cleanup Sunday against the Orioles.

Manager Bob Melvin said a day earlier that Olson would likely remain out through the weekend due to an eye contusion, but the 27-year-old's vision has apparently improved enough for him to check back into the lineup for the series finale. With Olson back in action after missing the previous three games, Seth Brown will move back into a reserve role.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Unlikely to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that he would "doubt" Olson (eye) returns to the lineup Sunday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Olson has already been ruled out for Saturday's matchup against Baltimore, but he was able to take some groundballs and take some swings in the cage prior to the game. If Olson is held out Sunday, Seth Brown or Mitch Moreland could fill in at first base once again.

Athletics' Matt Olson: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

It appears as though Olson has avoided a major injury, although it's not yet clear whether he could return for Friday's series opener against Baltimore.
