Athletics' Matt Olson: Keeps knocking cover off ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and two runs in a win over the Astros on Saturday.

Nine (seven doubles, two home runs) of Olson's 16 hits during August have now gone for extra bases, and he's generated three straight two-hit efforts. The 24-year-old's bat began heating up at the tail end of July, and he's now slashing .318/.366/.545 over the 71 plate appearances encompassing his last 17 games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Walks it off against Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-5 with a walk-off solo home run to send the Athletics to a 4-3 extra-inning victory over Houston on Friday.

Oakland was locked in a 3-3 deadlock with their division rivals in the 10th inning of this contest, but Olson sent everyone home with a laser blast over the wall off Tony Sipp. It was the continuation of what has been a breakout campaign at the dish for the 24-year-old, who has lashed 23 long balls and posted a .240/.327/.448 slash line through 446 at-bats this season.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Crushes two-run blast
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and two runs scored in the 6-0 win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Olson was held without a long ball since his multi-homer effort July 22. He's up to 22 home runs on the year as he's still chasing last year's total of 24 despite having more than double the at-bats in 2018.

Athletics' Matt Olson: On base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-2 with a double and two walks in an extra-innings win over the Tigers on Friday.

It's now a five-game hitting streak for Olson, a modest but nevertheless encouraging stretch of offense during which he's laced four doubles, knocked in a pair of runs and posted three multi-hit efforts overall. Olson had seen his average plummet all the way to .229 prior to the streak -- its lowest point since May 13.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Plates pair in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a two-run single, a double and a run in a win over the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Although he limped to a .220 average overall during the month of July, Olson went 5-for-12 with two doubles and Tuesday's pair of RBI over the last three games. Olson isn't keeping anywhere near the same frenetic home-run pace he established during his 2017 rookie campaign, but he's still blasted an impressive 21 round trippers and compiled 40 extra-base hits overall across 451 plate appearances this season.
