Athletics' Matt Olson: Sitting out finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Mariners, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The 25-year-old will step out of the starting nine for the first time since early June, a stretch of 98 consecutive starts in which he posted a .927 OPS with 27 homers. Seth Brown will start at first base Sunday as Olson rests up for Wednesday's Wild Card Game.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Leaves yard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Mariners on Friday.

Olson unloaded a 370-foot shot to left with Matt Chapman aboard in the seventh inning to erase a 2-1 deficit at the time. The homer was Olson's first since Sept. 17, but he's still slugged an impressive nine overall during the month, which has helped lead to an impressive 23 RBI across his last 24 games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Belts 35th round tripper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's victory over the Royals.

Olson got Oakland on the board in the seventh inning with a massive 450-foot solo shot to center field. The long ball was his fourth in the last six games and eighth overall in September. Olson missed all of April with a hand injury but has still managed to set career highs in homers (35) and RBI (86) in 118 games this season.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Another pair of RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a two-run double and another two-bagger in a loss to the Royals on Monday.

Olson erased an early 1-0 deficit with his first-inning double that plated both Ramon Laureano and Marcus Semien. The 25-year-old has been a terror with men on base in September, driving in 17 runs on the strength of 13 extra-base hits (six doubles, seven home runs).

Athletics' Matt Olson: Homers for third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Rangers.

Olson's power surge continued, as he's gone yard in three straight games and has five homers in his last five games. The first baseman has accumulated 10 RBI and seven runs scored in that span. For the year, Olson is up to .273/.356/.564 with 34 homers, 83 RBI and 68 runs scored in 114 games. He needs just one more RBI to match his total from last season, when he played in all 162 games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Leaves yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a win over the Rangers on Friday.

Olson squared up on a first-inning Brock Burke offering and sent it 395 feet into right center to open the scoring on the night. Despite a strong overall second half of the season, Olson's power production had been somewhat modest by his standards since the calendar flipped to August (seven home runs across 149 plate appearances between Aug. 1 and Sept. 9), but he's making up for that relative dry spell with four round trippers over his last four games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Slugs 32nd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's victory over Houston.

Olson took Justin Verlander deep in the third inning, launching a two-run shot to right field to stake Oakland to a three-run lead. Despite missing all of April with a broken bone in his right hand, the 25-year-old is now tied for the team lead with 32 homers and 81 RBI while slashing .274/.358/.557 in 481 plate appearances this season.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Timely hitting continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-4 with a two-run double and a run in a win over the Astros on Wednesday.

Olson has displayed a welcome penchant for timely hitting in September, with Wednesday representing his third multi-RBI game over the last five. The slugger has gotten it done with the help of eight extra-base hits (four doubles, four home runs), and he's been solid all season with men on base. Olson is now just five RBI from equaling the career-best 84 he tallied last season, and he's slashing .297/.391/.605 with 23 extra-base hits across 215 plate appearances with teammates on the basepaths this season.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Goes yard twice in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a walk, two home runs, three runs scored and four RBI in Tuesday's 21-7 rout of the Astros.

The first baseman was right at the heart of an A's attack that tied the franchise record for hits in a game with 25, while also tying the club's season highs in runs and homers (six). Olson now has 31 long balls on the year, joining Mark McGwire and Jason Giambi as the only first basemen in Oakland history with multiple 30-HR campaigns.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Matches career high in homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 4-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, two runs, and a walk in Saturday's 10-2 win over the Tigers.

The monster night began as Olson scored the tying run in the fourth inning on a Ramon Laureano single. He then homered off Tigers starter Jordan Zimmermann in the fifth inning and added his two-run single in the sixth. The first baseman is on a 10-game hitting streak, batting .390 (16-for-41) with three homers, seven RBI and 10 runs scored in that span. For the year, Olson is slashing .275/.359/.544, matching his career high with 29 homers and adding 73 RBI and 61 runs in 108 games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Blasts 28th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

Olson extended his hitting streak to five games with his second homer over that span. The 25-year-old also has a pair of doubles during that stretch as he continues to add to an extra-base hit tally that currently stands at an impressive 48 over 439 plate appearances.

September 1, 2019 12:08 PM
Athletics' Matt Olson: Reaches base five times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, two walks and two RBI in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Yankees in 11 innings.

Olson has now reached base in all but three of his 11 plate appearances through the first two games of the series in New York. He'll look to stay hot while sticking in the lineup in the series finale Sunday, though he'll draw a lefty-on-lefty matchup with southpaw J.A. Happ on the bump for the Yankees.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Doubles, scores twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs in a win over the Yankees on Friday.

Olson's multi-hit effort was his 10th of August, pushing his average to .319 (15-for-47) over his last 12 games. The 25-year-old slugger's current .264 season average is his highest since May 9, while his 19 RBI in August is just one short of his best monthly total this season.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Smacks timely double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 3-for-4 with a two-run double, a walk and two runs in a win over the Royals on Monday.

Olson has been racking up multi-hit efforts during what is his second straight solid month at the plate. The slugging first baseman has an impressive 23 hits overall during August. Olson has boosted his season average 17 points to .264 since the calendar flipped to July, and following Monday's production, his slugging percentage sits at .529, the second-highest mark of his career.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Stays hot with another homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, two runs and a walk to help the Athletics to a 6-2 victory over the Yankees on Tuesday.

Olson is red hot, as this marked his seventh multi-hit effort in his last nine games -- a stretch that has seen him crank four more long balls to give him 26 on the season. The recent tear has the 25-year-old's slash line up to a healthy .267/.348/.545 across 389 plate appearances.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Bat heating up as August unfolds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson, who went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a walk and a run in a win over the Astros on Saturday, is hitting .357 (10-for-28) with a double, three home runs, 10 RBI, two walks and four runs over his last seven games.

Olson has churned out five multi-hit games over that span, making it one of his most productive stretches of the season. The hot hitting already has the slugger just two RBI away from equaling the 15 he compiled during all of July while also pushing his average to a solid .260.

August 16, 2019 01:40 AM
Athletics' Matt Olson: Homers twice in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in Thursday's 7-6 win over the Astros.

Olson's three-run home run off Aaron Sanchez in the fourth inning marked his fifth three-run homer of the season. The 25-year-old continued to show off his ability to generate power with a solo long ball in the sixth, once again off Sanchez. Olson is now slashing .262/.343/.542 with 25 long balls, 58 RBI and 45 runs scored,

August 15, 2019 01:28 PM
Athletics' Matt Olson: Timely hitting continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the Giants on Wednesday.

Olson's August surge continued with his third two-RBI tally of the last seven games. The 25-year-old only has two extra-base hits overall in August, but he's nevertheless just six home runs away from equaling the career-best 29 he slugged last season in 293 additional plate appearances.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Swats deciding homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 2-0 win over the White Sox.

Olson's fourth-inning shot -- his 23rd of the year -- accounted for the only runs for either squad in Sunday's contest. He snapped a nine-game homerless drought in what's been a disappointing start to August; he's gone 8-for-33 (.242) with one extra-base knock and nine strikeouts.

August 11, 2019 04:04 PM
Athletics' Matt Olson: On base thrice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-4 with a walk in a loss to the White Sox on Saturday.

Olson had one of only two multi-hit efforts for the Athletics in the contest, as he partly emerged from a 4-for-26 funk in which he'd opened August. Despite the successful night at the plate Saturday, however, Olson still hasn't notched an extra-base hit since the calendar flipped, an atypical streak that's now reached eight games.
