Player Notes
Athletics prospect first baseman Matt Olson went 3-for-5 with a home run for High-A Stockton on Friday.

Advice: Olson has three home runs over his last four games, raising his season line to .243/.395/.534. Olson's power was never questioned, but he has taken advantage of the hitter-friendly ballparks in the California League to the fullest, blasting 28 home runs in 438 plate appearances. Olson could see time in Oakland by the end of 2015.

Athletics first base prospect Matt Olson went 1-for-4 with a home run and a walk on Monday for High-A Stockton.

Advice: The 20-year old Olson has had a great season, seeing a bump in his walk rate (12.9 percent in 2013 to 19.3 percent in 2014), isolated power (.210 to .278), and wOBA (.349 to .397) while decreasing his strikeout rate (26.5 percent to 22.0 percent). He still strikes out too much, but his power is near the top of the charts and his prospect status is increasing accordingly.
