After a conversation with manager A.J. Hinch and athletic trainer Ryne Eubanks, Olson would indeed depart the game. He was replaced on the mound by Tyler Holton.

He becomes the latest Tigers pitcher to be unavailable due to various ailments, joining the extensive list that already includes Spencer Turnbull, Casey Mize, Eduardo Rodriguez, Alex Faedo, Matthew Boyd, and Tarik Skubal.
