CF,RF - CLE
Laureano had a solid performance in Friday's game against the Rangers, going 2-for-2 with a home run, an RBI, and three runs scored.
While his season-long numbers haven't been impressive, this outing could be a positive sign for Laureano's fantasy outlook going forward. He will look to build on this performance and provide more consistent production for fantasy managers in the coming weeks.
Laureano's 2 hits included a double and a home run, driving in 3 runs and scoring once, boosting his season RBI total to 27 in 78 games played.
Although his batting average remains low at .216, his ability to produce extra-base hits and contribute in multiple categories makes him a valuable fantasy asset.
