Athletics prospect 1B Matt Olson went 3-for-5 with his second home run of the season on Monday for Double-A Midland.
He drove in three runs in the game and also collected his first double of the season. The 21-year-old led the High-A California League with 37 home runs in 2014, and he also paced the league in runs scored (111), total bases (278) and walks (117), all the while batting .262/.404/.543 in 138 games. His 6’4", 236-pound frame and long arm leave holes in his swing and leads to a fair amount of swing-and-miss (almost 22% of the time in 2014). However, he also generates plus power that projects favorably in the major leagues. Olson could be an option for A’s, either at first base or designated hitter, at some point later this season.
