Olson went 1-for-4 with a two-run blast in Thursday's 7-3 loss against Houston.
The 24-year-old has 34 RBI and a .242/.324/.460 slash line alongside his 14 long balls. Olson had 24 homers and 45 RBI in just 59 games last season, but he should surpass both of those totals in 2018. He's also still striking out at a pretty high rate, with 78 punch outs in 248 at-bats.
Olson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Royals.
Olson homered in the fourth inning off Jason Hammel for his 13th home run of the season. He extended his hitting streak to seven games, during which he has hit five home runs to go along with eight runs scored and 12 RBI. That stretch is reminiscent of his production late last season when he took the league by storm, and is a good reminder of his tremendous power upside.
Olson went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.
Olson struck out twice for the second straight game, but that was the only knock on him Tuesday. The 24-year-old has been on a tear of late, as he's hitting .450 (9-for-20) with four home runs and 11 RBI during his current five-game hitting streak. Thanks to the recent outburst, Olson's now sporting a .256/.337/.475 slash line that's much closer to last year's output than the rate he'd been going at over the first two months.
Olson went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a win over the Royals on Sunday.
It suddenly feels like 2017 again for Olson, who's in the midst of a power surge akin to the jaw-dropping one he generated during his rookie campaign. Sunday's homer was already his third of June, as well as his eighth since May 14. Olson sports an impressive 30.8 percent HR/FB rate and 59.7 percent hard contact rate over that 20-game stretch, numbers that have helped lead to a .438 wOBA and .397 ISO during that span as well. More consistent contact has certainly been a key, as Olson's 19.5 percent strikeout rate in that sample is a significant improvement on the 31.4 percent figure he sported over his first 38 games.
Olson went 3-for-4 with a walk, two home runs, three runs scored and five RBI in Friday's 16-0 rout of the Royals.
He took Ian Kennedy deep in the second and third innings, giving Olson 11 homers on the year and three in the last two games. The five RBI were also a career high for the 24-year-old, but despite his current form he still carries a .246/.330/.464 slash line through 58 games, a step backwards across the board from his explosive 2017 debut.
