Player Notes
Athletics prospect 1B Matt Olson went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and five RBI on Monday for Double-A Midland.

Advice: He’s batting .237/.376/.417 with 12 home runs, 25 doubles, 52 RBI and a 103/76 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 96 games in the Texas League. Olson has been on a power surge of late, as he now has four home runs in his last five games after hitting seven over his previous 91 contests at Midland. After clubbing 37 long balls last season at High-A Stockton and tallying 23 in his full-season debut the previous year, Olson’s sharp drop-off in home runs this season has been a disappointment. However, the good news is he’s continued to take walks (76) and reach base at a high clip (.376) despite facing older and more advanced pitching at the Double-A level.
