Bolt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Thursday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
With Mark Canha nursing a groin injury, Bolt will provide the Athletics with outfield depth for the final series of the season. The 25-year-old has spent most of the season at Triple-A, slashing .269/.350/.459 with 11 home runs and seven steals in 89 games for Las Vegas.
Bolt was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday.
Bolt joined the Athletics' roster when Khris Davis (hip) landed on the injured list in late May. He went 0-for-3 in his only start. With Davis returning Saturday, Bolt heads back to the minors.
Bolt went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run in a win over the Mariners on Sunday.
The 25-year-old rookie drew his first major-league start after logging his first three appearances with the Athletics earlier in the season as an in-game replacement. Bolt is up with the big-league club as a result of Khris Davis' current injured-list stint due to hip and oblique issues. Bolt was slashing an impressive .311/.379/.571 with 17 extra-base hits (nine doubles, two triples, six home runs) and 30 RBI with Triple-A Las Vegas in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League before his promotion.
Bolt was recalled by Oakland on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bolt spent a brief period on the big-league roster earlier in the season, going 1-for-4 at the plate. He'll likely fill a bench role during his time with the team. Khris Davis (hip/oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Bolt was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Bolt was called up for his big-league debut Friday. He got into three games, going 1-for-4 with a double and two strikeouts. He'll make way for Matt Olson, who returned from his broken hamate bone in a corresponding move.
The Athletics will call up Bolt from Triple-A Las Vegas prior to Friday's series opener with the Pirates, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Due to off days Thursday and Monday, the Athletics are able to get by with a four-man rotation temporarily, affording them the flexibility to add another bench bat for the series in a National League park. With the slow-footed Khris Davis expected to see time in the outfield this weekend, it makes sense for the Athletics to have a capable late-inning defensive replacement on hand in Bolt, who can play all three spots. The 25-year-old switch hitter may also prove to be a useful pinch-hitting option, especially while he's been wielding a hot bat in the Pacific Coast League. Through 22 games with Las Vegas, Bolt was slashing .325/.400/.675 with six home runs and three stolen bases.

Bolt joined Oakland's 40-man roster Tuesday.
