- A’s trade All-Star Yonder Alonso to Seattle
By Susan Slusser - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
ANAHEIM - The A’s traded their 2017 All-Star on Sunday, sending first baseman Yonder Alonso to the Mariners in exchange for onetime Oakland prospect Boog Powell.Instead of withdrawing the revocable waivers, Oakland - continuing its stated mission to go young - worked out a deal for Powell, 24, an outfielder who hit .194 with two RBIs in 23 games with Seattle this year but who is batting .340 in 58 games at Triple-A Tacoma.Vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane said a month ago that the team is in a full rebuild with an eye to going into a new stadium with a strong core group centered around the current young players.Of his work with them, Alonso said with a laugh, “I tried to help them out every single day, I definitely think they got the picture.”Alonso already had texted his longtime friend and former Oakland teammate Danny Valencia, who now probably will platoon at first with Alonso.With Matt Joyce serving the final day of his two-game suspension for directing an anti-gay slur at a fan, Oakland will have a 23-man roster against the Angels on Sunday because first baseman-outfielder Matt Olson couldn’t arrive in time for the day game in Anaheim.Olson’s promotion won’t be official until he arrives in Oakland on Monday or Tuesday, but manager Bob Melvin said that Olson will go into a first-base platoon with Healy.Olson is batting .272 with 23 homers, 60 RBIs and 45 walks in 79 games at Triple-A Nashville, where he has an OPS of .935.
- A’s Matt Olson getting into swing of things
By Steve Kroner - Tuesday Aug 15, 2017
A’s Matt Olson getting into swing of thingsBaseball’s chicken-and-egg question — do players thrive because they get consistent playing time or do they get consistent playing time because they’re thriving? — has a perfect case study in A’s first baseman Matt Olson.Olson homered in each of the final three games of the Baltimore series over the weekend.Olson, 23, has accepted his fate of yo-yoing between Oakland and Triple-A Nashville.“It isn’t as bad of a gig as the media makes it out to be,” Olson said before going 0-for-4 Monday.Olson said that manager Bob Melvin just came up to me in the dugout and was like, ‘Someone’s got to go.Olson returned to the big club Wednesday, and this time, it appears he’ll get an extended stay in the majors.[...] he knows he’s going to get a significant opportunity and he’s taken advantage of it.To put some significance to Olson’s recent power surge:On Sunday, he became the first left-handed hitter to take Baltimore’s Zach Britton deep since April 29, 2013.Olson is hitting .200 with seven homers in 75 at-bats with the A’s this season.“It doesn’t ever look like anything really makes him nervous or antsy,” Melvin said.Steve Kroner is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.The A’s on Monday announced a season-ticket membership program for the 2018 season.Season-ticket holders will receive various benefits based on their membership level.
- A’s give manager Bob Melvin an extension through 2019
By Susan Slusser - Thursday Sep 28, 2017
The A’s core young group of players, the bunch the team is building around - Matt Chapman, Matt Olson, Chad Pinder, Franklin Barreto, Bruce Maxwell et. al. - will have their manager in place at least through 2019. Oakland announced Thursday that manager Bob Melvin’s deal has been extended through 2019, which puts him on a par with vice president of baseball operations Billy Beane and general manager David Forst. Melvin, who won American League manager of the year honors in his first full season with Oakland in 2012, is 535-532 since becoming the A’s interim since taking over on June 9, 2011. His 535 wins are the third most in Oakland history behind Tony La Russa (798) and Art Howe (600).
- All power, no platoon for A’s Matt Olson
By Susan Slusser - Sunday Sep 10, 2017
When the A’s dealt Yonder Alonso away last month, their plan was to make Matt Olson the primary first baseman - and unlike Alonso, Oakland’s 2017 All-Star, Olson isn’t even platooning much. Olson started Sunday against Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel, and the rookie entered Sunday’s finale against Houston with a .250 average and .464 on-base percentage against lefties. "That’s an easy one right now," manager Bob Melvin said of playing Olson every day. "He’s taken (Zach) Britton deep, it seems like he gets good swings against all lefties. The defense is sensational. … It’s tough to take him out of the lineup right now.
- A’s end road skid with win at Fenway
By Ken Powtak - Thursday Sep 14, 2017
BOSTON — Doug Fister’s rough start was too much for the Red Sox to overcome this time. Matt Olson hit a two-run homer, Jed Lowrie drove in two runs and the A’s rebounded for a 7-3 victory over the AL East leaders to win for the sixth time in seven games Wednesday night. Jharel Cotton (8-10) picked up the win, allowing three runs in five innings. “You look at the box score and it doesn’t tell you how he battled and had to make some big pitches with the lead,” A’s manager Bob Melvin said. The loss trimmed Boston’s cushion in the division to three games over the Yankees, who beat Tampa Bay 3-2.
