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.
Due to off days Thursday and Monday, the Athletics are able to get by with a four-man rotation temporarily, affording the flexibility to add another bench bat for the series in the 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 was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Bolt went 1-for-10 with a run scored as a part of big-league camp, but he's been reassigned to the minors as of Sunday. He made it to Double-A last year and posted a .256/.325/.446 slash line with 10 homers and 37 RBI in 78 games.
Bolt joined Oakland's 40-man roster Tuesday.
Bolt's contract was selected to shield him from the Rule 5 draft. The 24-year-old prospect spent the majority of his 2018 season with Double-A Midland (78 games), posting a .256/.325/.446 batting line with 10 homers and 37 RBI.
