CF,RF - OAK
Ramon Laureano went 3-for-4 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting two singles along with a double while driving in one run, and striking out once as the Athletics lost to the Angels 5-4 in an extra innings game.
Laureano did his best to help the A's to a win as he put up a three hit night. The Athletics' outfielder is currently slashing .218/.297/.395 on the season and is one of the few players on the A's who can currently be rostered. The 28 year old has added some value with his legs this season as he has 10 stolen bases so far, which leads his team.
Ramon Laureano went 2-for-5 at the plate on Thursday, hitting a home run and a double for a total of four RBI, and striking out twice as the A's beat the Angels in a 8-7 game.
Laureano's homer on Thursday was his 12th of the season as he brought his total slightly above average. The A's outfielder is batting .227 on the season with an OPS of .725. The 28 year old has a wRC+ of 108, he is also using his speed to add value as he has 10 stolen bases on the season.
The Philadelphia Phillies are reportedly looking for some defensive help in centerfield and Ramon Laureano is at the top of that market.
Heyman noted that while Laureano is a potential target, he is not that likely to be traded. He added Michael A. Taylor, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Jose Siri as some other considerations. Either way, it sounds like the Phillies are expected to make some sort of move to address the outfield by Tuesday's trade deadline.
Ramon Laureano went 2-for-3 at the plate on Sunday, hitting a double along with a solo homer, walking once, and striking out once as the Athletics' went on to lose to the White Sox in a 4-1 game.
Laureano increased his trade value by playing Sunday as he went on to hit his 11th home run of the season. The Athletics' outfielder is batting .226 on the season with an OPS of .717, he would likely see an increase in fantasy value if he was to be traded to a contender of course. The 28 year old has also added value with his legs this season as he has stolen 10 bases through 73 games played.
The Athletics and Brewers have been rumored to have had discussions around trading Ramon Laureano.
Laureano, along with pretty much any A's player, makes sense as a trade target for a team like the Brewers. He hasn't been great as of late, hitting .184 with a .260 OBP in the month of July. Perhaps a change of scenery would provide a spark to Laureano's season.
