Player Notes
Athletics prospect 1B Matt Olson went 2-for-2 with a solo home run and three walks on Thursday for Double-A Midland.

Advice: The home run was the seventh of the season for Olson, who finished third in the minor leagues last season with 37. The 21-year-old slugger is batting just .236 through his first 205 plate appearances in the Texas League, but he’s been able to keep his strikeout rate (22.9%) in line with his career average and, more significantly, improve his walk rate (20.5%) against advanced pitching. Olson is a big part of the A’s future, but don’t expect to see him in the major leagues before the 2016 season.
