  • Braves' Matt Olson: Hits homer, robbed of another

    Olson went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, an additional run and a double in Wednesday's loss to Miami.

    Olson launched a deep shot to right field in the fourth inning, but Marlins outfielder Peyton Burdick made a great play to bring back what looked to be a home run. Undeterred, Olson responded with a double in his next at-bat before launching a two-run homer in the seventh. In his first season in Atlanta, the first baseman finished with a .240/.325/.477 slash line, 34 long balls, 103 RBI and 86 runs. He's hit at least 34 homers in three of the past four seasons, with the exception being the significantly shortened 2020 campaign.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Continues power surge

    Olson went 1-for-2 with a home run, two walks and two RBI in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Mets.

    Olson went yard in all three contests of Atlanta's series with New York, giving him five long balls in his last six games. After a rough first three and a half weeks of September, Olson closed the month on a hot note and has carried over that success to early October. He secured the third 30-homer campaign in the process and now sits at 33 heading into Atlanta's final series of the regular season in Miami this week.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Launches homer in win

    Olson went 2-for-4 with a home run and two total RBI in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Mets.

He now has a home run in three straight games and in four of his last five. The two-hit outing also extended his hit streak to six games. During that span, Olson has gone 9-for-21 (.428) and has improved his batting average from .233 to .240.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Launches solo home run

    Olson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two total runs scored in Friday's victory over the Mets.

    Olson's solo shot came in the second inning as the second of back-to-back homers with Austin Riley. He later scored on an Eddie Rosario sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. It was Olson's 31st homer of the season and his fourth in September. Friday's two-hit game extended his hitting streak to five games. During that span, the first baseman has gone 7-for-17 (.411). Prior to this recent streak, Olson had picked up just eight hits in his previous 20 games.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Crushes 30th home run

    Olson went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-2, extra-inning loss against Washington.

    The Atlanta slugger took an 0-2 fastball from Josiah Gray the opposite way to left field for his 30th home run of the season and tie the game at 1-1. Olson's bat has come back to life the last couple of days after he received a breather Sept. 24 in response to a .111/.210/.167 slash line in his first 81 September plate appearances. Since the breather, he is 5-for-14 with three extra-base hits.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Clubs 29th homer

    Olson went 1-for-2 with a walk, a home run and three RBI in Monday's 8-0 win over the Nationals.

    His two-run blast off Cory Abbott in the fourth inning opened the scoring and gave Bryce Elder all the run support he would need. Olson snapped a 17-game homer drought with the performance, and his bat is showing some flickers of life with the playoffs on the horizon -- he's gone 6-for-25 (.240) over his last seven starts with two doubles in addition to Monday's long ball, Olson's 29th of the season.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Sits for first time

    Olson will sit for the first time this season Saturday against the Phillies.

    Atlanta has leaned heavily on its new $168 million man this season, and the workload may be weighing on him. He's faded hard down the stretch, hitting .096/.194/.145 across his last 23 games. Austin Riley will slide over to first base to give him a breather, with Orlando Arcia starting at third.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Ends drought at dish

    Olson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's 5-2 win over the Nationals.

    Olson's stat line wasn't eye-popping from a fantasy standpoint by any means, but it was likely a welcome sight for his managers nonetheless amid a prolonged skid at the plate. Since mashing a three-run home run in a win over the Athletics on Sept. 6, Olson slashed .053/.122/.053 with a 34.1 percent strikeout rate over his subsequent 10 games. Even after the two-hit game, Olson is batting just .235, the lowest average of his career aside from the pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Three-run homer in win

    Olson went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-9 victory over the Athletics.

    Olson walked and scored in the first inning before taking Cole Irvin deep for a three-run shot in the top of the third frame. The long ball was his 28th of the year and first since Aug. 24. Olson came into Tuesday's contest having gone 1-for-23 in his previous seven games, so perhaps the homer will get him back on track moving forward. On the season, the first baseman owns a .247 average with 28 homers, 90 RBI and 74 runs scored over 136 games with his new squad.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Knocks 40th double

    Olson went 3-for-4 with a double, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's 11-4 win over the Cardinals.

    Olson's collected six hits, including a home run and three doubles, in his last two games. For the season, he's up to 40 two-baggers, trailing only the Dodgers' Freddie Freeman (42). Olson continues to flex strong power, with Friday's effort getting his slugging percentage back up to .500 for the first time since July 31. The first baseman is batting .254 with 27 home runs, 87 RBI and 67 runs scored through 127 contests overall.

  • Braves' Matt Olson: Extra-base barrage Wednesday

    Olson went 3-for-5 with a walk, two doubles, a grand slam and a second run scored in Wednesday's 14-2 rout of the Pirates.

    The first baseman is now tied for third in the majors with 66 extra-base hits, including a career-high 39 doubles, and only Aaron Judge (68) and Olson's teammate Austin Riley (67) are ahead of him on that leaderboard. Olson's been providing plenty of power in August, batting .239 (22-for-92) through 23 games with six of his 27 homers on the year and 20 of his 87 RBI.
