Athletics first base prospect Matt Olson went 2-for-4 with a home run and a walk for High-A Stockton on Wednesday.
Olson leads the California League and is third in all of minor league baseball with 36 home runs for the season. He has been white-hot in August, hitting .293/.424/.600 with five doubles and six home runs over 19 games, raising his overall season line to .254/.400/.543. The California League is hitter friendly, but Stockton is slightly slanted toward pitchers, which makes Olson's higher output at home (.253/.396/.589 with 21 homers) as opposed to on the road (.256/.405/.493 with 15 homers) all the more impressive. He won't be up until mid-2015 at the earliest, but he has the power to be among the home run leaders in the major leagues once he's established. Aug 21 - 9:41 AM
