Olivares sits for the third straight game Friday against the Tigers.
Olivares has gone just 3-for-18 at the plate over his last seven games. He'll remain on the bench in this one, with Franchy Cordero starting in center field.
Olivares isn't starting Thursday against the Tigers.
Olivares will take a seat for a second consecutive game during the series opener against Detroit. Alex Gordon will take over in left field.
Olivares is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
Franchy Cordero (wrist) was activated off the injured list Wednesday and will immediately enter the starting lineup. Olivares could see less playing time over the final few games of the season with Cordero now healthy.
Olivares is not in the lineup Monday against the Cardinals, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.
Olivares sits for just the third time since joining the Royals in a trade from the Padres at the deadline. He owns a decent enough .720 OPS in 14 games for his new team, though he has just two hits in his last seven contests. Bubba Starling starts in center field in his absence.
Olivares isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.
Olivares will get a breather after going 0-for-12 with one strikeout over the past four games. Nick Heath will take over in center field Saturday.
Olivares is not in the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.
Olivares started the past seven games and went 9-for-27 with two homers, a triple, three runs and five RBI during that stretch, but he'll take a seat Sunday. Nick Heath receives the start in center field in the series finale.
Olivares went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against Cleveland.
Olivares took Aaron Civale deep in the sixth inning for his third home run of the season and second as a Royal. He's enjoyed regular playing time since being dealt from the Padres and has collected at least one hit in all seven of his starts. Overall, the 24-year-old is hitting .277/.298/.477 across 67 plate appearances.
Olivares went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer against the White Sox on Sunday.
Olivares took Steve Cishek deep in the seventh inning to record his second home run of the season and his first since joining the Royals as part of a trade deadline deal, though he had multi-hit efforts in both of his previous two starts with the club. Olivares should get plenty of chances to play in the outfield to close the season, giving him the opportunity to showcase both his power and speed.
Olivares was called up and will start in center field while batting sixth Thursday against the White Sox, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
He was traded to Kansas City as the headliner in the trade that sent Trevor Rosenthal to the Padres. The trade gives Olivares a much better chance of getting everyday at-bats, and it's encouraging to see the righty hitter getting his first start for his new team against right-hander Dylan Cease. Olivares' sprint speed ranks in the 92nd percentile, so he should be a threat on the bases. He also boasts notable pop, hitting 18 home runs while stealing 35 bases in 127 games at Double-A last year.
Olivares, along with a player to be named later, is being traded to Kansas City in exchange for Trevor Rosenthal, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Olivares was one of the top-ranked prospect outfielders in the Padres' farm system but did not showcase any eye-popping ability during his time with the Padres this season. He hit .176/.222/.294 with a home run and three RBI in 34 at-bats but does possess the speed and arm strength to play any of the three outfield positions. The Royals have an aging Alex Gordon in left field -- Gordon is currently struggling at the plate with a .196/.267/.315 slash line across 92 at-bats. There are no guarantees that Olivares takes over the 13-year-old veteran's spot in left, but there's definitely a chance he could compete for playing time there right away if he receives a callup.
Olivares was optioned to San Diego's alternate camp site Wednesday.
Olivares has struggled across 13 appearances for the Padres this season, slashing .176/.222/.194 with one home run and a 2:14 BB:K. He'll remain on the team's taxi squad for the time being. Michel Baez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Olivares went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's win over Arizona.
The three runs scored by the Padres in this game came through solo home runs, and Olivares' bomb was the nail in the coffin for San Diego in this low-scoring win. This was Olivares' first long ball of the season but, as a part-time player, he might not have a lot of fantasy value outside of the deepest formats.
Olivares remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Olivares had seen a fair amount of playing time in right field to begin the year, but he'll be on the bench for a fourth consecutive game Wednesday. Wil Myers will shift to right field with Greg Garcia starting as the designated hitter and batting seventh.
Olivares remains on the bench Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Olivares had started three times in a span of four games last week but has now been on the bench for three straight. He's gone just 4-for-17 at the plate this season.
Olivares isn't in the lineup Monday against the Dodgers.
Olivares has seen a fair share of playing time in right field to begin the season, but he'll play a bench role for the third time in the past four games. Wil Myers will start in right field with Abraham Almonte serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh.
Olivares is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.
Rather than leaning on the struggling Josh Naylor as its primary designated hitter, San Diego has deployed a rotation of players at that spot, including outfielders Wil Myers and Tommy Pham. That's allowed Olivares to start three of the past four games in the outfield, but he'll be relegated to the bench in the series finale in Colorado since an infielder (Manny Machado) is serving as the DH on Sunday.
Olivares went 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored Wednesday in the Padres' 7-6 loss to the Giants.
With Tommy Pham moving to designated hitter and Josh Naylor getting the day off, Olivares was able to pick up his third start of the season and took advantage. The rookie is off to a 4-for-9 start to his big-league career and could be in store for more regular action if the Padres elect to phase out Naylor, who has slashed a lackluster .244/.310/.395 (86 wRC+) over his 284 MLB plate appearances to date.
Olivares went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double in the Padres' 5-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.
The 24-year-old played right field and hit seventh for the Padres in his big-league debut. He was picked off and caught stealing second base in the sixth inning. Olivares was successful on 35 of 45 attempts at Double-A Amarillo last season and had a .283/.349/.453 line to go with those 35 steals, so he would seem to have some upside if Wil Myers ends up DH'ing more than expected.
Olivares will make his MLB debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks, batting seventh and playing right field.
Olivares sat against lefty Madison Bumgarner on Friday but will be in the lineup against another lefty, Robbie Ray, in this one, pushing Wil Myers to designated hitter and Ty France to the bench. Olivares has yet to play a game above the Double-A level but evidently impressed enough in camp to earn at least a part-time role.
Olivares is included on the Padres' Opening Day roster.
Olivares had been trending toward a roster spot after strong performances in both spring training and summer camp, and San Diego rewarded his impressive play by including him on the active roster. The 24-year-old could get a fair amount of playing time this season, especially if the team uses him in a semi-platoon with Trent Grisham.
