Athletics' Matt Olson: Supplies grand slam in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-5 with a grand slam Wednesday in the Athletics' 9-3 win over the Mariners.

Olson's bases-clearing drive off reliever Chasen Bradford concluded a six-run fifth inning for the Athletics, who kept their hopes of earning home-field advantage for the wild-card matchup with the Yankees alive with the victory. Though he has seen his OPS fall more than 200 points from his impressive rookie campaign, Olson is coming on strong in September with a .295/.396/.526 slash line, five home runs and 19 RBI in 23 games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Stays hot in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 1-for-2 with an RBI single, three walks and two runs in a win over the Angels on Thursday.

Several of his teammates did it in more spectacular fashion, but Olson had his fair share of contributions in the Athletics' jaw-dropping 21-run outburst. The multiple walks were a rarity for Olson, who'd last accomplished the feat on Aug. 3 and had only done it on eight occasions overall this season. Olson's on-base percentage for September is up to a whopping .406 following Thursday's performance, as he's now reached safely in eight straight games.

Athletics' Matt Olson: On base thrice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-3 with a walk in a loss to the Rays on Sunday.

Olson continued to swing a hot bat through the entirety of the three-game set versus Tampa, and he's now hit safely in five straight games overall. That stretch includes back-to-back two-hit efforts, and his consistency at the plate throughout the month has helped lead to an impressive .311 September average.

Athletics' Matt Olson: Pops 27th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Olson went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo homer in Saturday's loss to the Rays.

Olson tied the game up at 2-2 in the sixth inning with his solo shot off Yonny Chirinos, though the Rays would respond with five runs over the next three innings to secure the victory. While the 24-year-old has taken a step back in his sophomore campaign, he's still slashing a respectable .244/.327/.454 with 27 homers, 75 runs and 75 RBI through 149 games.
