Athletics' Matt Olson: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson (hand) was reinstated from the injured list as expected Tuesday.

Olson made it just two games into the season before suffering a broken hamate bone. He should resume an everyday role at first base now that he's healthy. Skye Bolt was optioned in a corresponding move.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Returning from IL on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson (hand) will be activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Olson has been cleared to rejoin the A's ahead of Tuesday's game against the Reds after completing a five-game rehab stint with Triple-A Las Vegas, during which he went 4-for-22 (.182) with a homer and two RBI. To make room for Olson, the Athletics are expected to designate Kendrys Morales for assignment. Look for Olson to immediately reclaim his role as the team's primary first baseman, though he may be eased back into action given the extended length of his absence.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Pair of hits in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson (hand) went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Fresno on Sunday.

Olson has now hit safely in three straight rehab games and has a pair of RBI during that stretch. The 25-year-old is likely to be evaluated Monday for a possible activation Tuesday, as per previous reports.

Athletics' Matt Olson: May return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson (hand) could be activated from the 10-day injured list as early as Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Olson began his minor-league rehab assignment Wednesday and will be evaluated for potential activation after Sunday's game with Triple-A Las Vegas. The 25-year-old suffered a broken hamate bone in his right hand just before the start of the regular season, while the A's acquired Kendrys Morales to help fill the void at first base.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Progressing well in rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson (hand), who went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Triple-A Las Vegas' extra-innings loss to Fresno on Friday, is progressing well overall during his time with the Aviators, Jake Crouse of MLB.com reports. "He feels good. He's seeing a lot of pitches," manager Bob Melvin said. "Hit a couple balls hard the first night, had a walk. ... Maybe not his best night, but feels good seeing pitches, and it's health that we want. Still got a few more games before we potentially bring him up."

Melvin's comments actually predated Friday night's game, and Olson's ninth-inning homer in the contest only served to validate the general spirit of the Athletics skipper's words. Olson is expected to continue suiting up for Las Vegas over the weekend before being reevaluated for potential activation.
