Matt Olson hasn’t been the power threat the Braves may have been expecting, but he has been a very quality hitter — posting a 123 OPS+. Olson is having a bit of a down year by some standards, but where he isn’t lacking is in the doubles department. He has 32 of them already, a Braves record before the All Star Break:
So far this year, Matt Olson is on pace for 63 doubles.
A 60 double season is actually more rare than a 60 homer season, 60 doubles has only happened 6 times in history compared to 8 times for 60 homers.

These are the six 60 double seasons in MLB history, as you can see, it hasn’t been done in almost 100 years:
- Earl Webb, 1931 Red Sox: 67.
- George Burns, 1926 Cleveland: 64.
- Joe Medwick, 1936 Cardinals: 64.
- Hank Greenberg, 1934 Tigers: 63.
- Paul Waner, 1932 Pirates: 62.
- Charlie Gehringer, 1936 Tigers: 60.
Matt Olson has been a great addition to the Braves, and it would be really cool to see him get to 60 doubles as the Braves bring home another division title.
