Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Multi-hit effort Tuesday
Laureano went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a run in a Cactus League win over the Angels on Tuesday.
The defensive-minded outfielder came through with his first multi-hit effort since March 7 and only his second of spring overall. Laureano has hit safely in three of his last four games, but he has just one extra-base hit, a double, and his spring average sits at a pedestrian .243 across 41 plate appearances.... See More ...

Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Struggling since return from injury
Laureano is 0-for-7 with two walks over the three Cactus League games he's played since returning from a two-game absence due to a groin injury.
Laureano was held out of Wednesday's and Thursday's exhibitions after being removed from Tuesday's game against the Angels with groin tightness. His lack of success at the plate since returning leaves him with an .083 average (1-for-12) over five Cactus League games overall.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Back in lineup Friday
Laureano (groin) is starting in right field and batting third Friday versus the Royals.
Laureano missed the team's last two contests after being removed from Tuesday's lineup with groin tightness, but the 28-year-old will be back on the diamond Friday. The outfielder is one of the A's most experienced players and could have a big season if he hits third on a consistent basis, as expected.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Likely sitting out Thursday
Laureano (groin) went through a normal workout Wednesday, but he was held out of the Athletics' Cactus League lineup for the second straight game and is likely to remain sidelined Thursday, the team's official site reports.
Laureano was a late scratch from Tuesday's game against the Angels with what was later revealed to be groin tightness. The Athletics are unsurprisingly taking a cautious approach with Laureano at this point in spring training, making it likely he doesn't return to Cactus League action until this weekend at the earliest....

Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Dealing with groin tightness
Laureano's removal from Tuesday's lineup was due to left groin tightness, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The Athletics have deemed the move precautionary, but, given the type of injury, Laureano would figure to be down for at least another day or two. He's currently slated to be Oakland's starting right fielder this season.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Scratched from Tuesday's lineup
Laureano was a late scratch from the Athletics' Cactus League lineup Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
There's no word yet on the reasoning for Laureano's removal, but the A's should provide an update before long. Conner Capel will play right field instead.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Settles with Oakland
Laureano agreed to a one-year, $3.55 million contract with the Athletics on Friday to avoid arbitration, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Laureano missed the early part of last season while serving a PED suspension and missed the final couple weeks of the campaign with hamstring and hip issues. The 28-year-old struggled when healthy with a .211/.287/.376 slash line in 94 games, but he'll nonetheless receive a raise for his first year of arbitration eligibility.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Recovering from PRP injection
Laureano (hamstring), who's already ruled out for the remainder of the season, recently received a PRP injection in his right hip, the Associated Press reports.
A right hamstring strain is what has ended Laureano's season early, but the outfielder also opted to try and address some right hip discomfort now that he's been ruled out for the season. Laureano will begin a rehab program with team trainers this week ahead of what's expected to be a normal offseason.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Deemed unlikely to return in '22
Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Wednesday he doesn't expect Laureano (hamstring) to return before the end of the regular season, the Associated Press reports.
Laureano's stint on the injured list began Sunday, which would leave him just enough time to return for a handful of games in before the conclusion of the campaign. However, Kotsay threw cold water on that notion Wednesday, remarking "I'm kind of sure it's going to be a season-ending (injury)," with respect to Laureano's hamstring strain. The A's skipper did confirm the 28-year-old would begin a rehab program in coming days with the goal of being able to have a normal offseason.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Return this season not certain
Laureano (hamstring) continues be evaluated, and it remains unclear whether he'll be able to return before the conclusion of the regular season, the Associated Press reports.
Laureano went on the injured list Sunday with a right hamstring strain amidst a very difficult start to September, where he'd hit just .108 across his first 10 games of the month. If the curtain is indeed ultimately closed on the 28-year-old's 2022 campaign, it's one he'll be eager to put behind him after it began with him completing an 80-game PED suspension carried over from last season and then led to a career-worst .211/.287/.376 slash line across 94 games....

Athletics' Ramon Laureano: To IL with hamstring strain
Laureano was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right hamstring strain.
Laureano is hitting .108 with 15 strikeouts and zero walks in 10 games this month. Cristian Pache should get steady run in center field while Laureano is out.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Not starting Saturday
Laureano will be on the bench Saturday against the Astros.
Laureano started nine of the last 10 games since his return from an oblique strain, struggling to a .108/.175/.216 line and 0:15 BB:K over that stretch. Cristian Pache will be the center fielder Saturday, while Seth Brown starts in right.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Swipes 11th bag Friday
Laureano went 0-for-1 with a hit-by-pitch and a stolen base in a loss to the Astros on Friday.
Laureano was eventually replaced by Chad Pinder in right field, but he was able to contribute a steal after getting plunked by Justin Verlander. The outfielder remains mired in a significant slump, however, as he owns a .108 average, .391 OPS and 37.5 percent strikeout rate across the last 10 games.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Homers on second chance
Laureano went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 10-3 victory over the White Sox on Sunday.
With White Sox starter Johnny Cueto laboring in the fifth inning, Laureano hit a routine foul pop up in what appeared to be the third out of the inning. However, Leurys Garcia dropped the ball in a fielding error which allowed Laureano to stay alive. Laureano then took Cueto deep for his 13th home run of the season. The home run is only Laureano's second hit over his past 22 at-bats since coming off the IL (oblique) and comes after he expressed his frustration in the dugout this past weekend.... See More ...

Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Resting Sunday
Laureano is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Laureano will get a breather after he went 1-for-18 with eight strikeouts while starting in each of Oakland's last five games following his return from the injured list Tuesday. Cristian Pache will spell Laureano in center field in the series finale.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Gets on twice in return
Laureano (oblique), reinstated from the injured list earlier in the day, went 1-for-4 with an RBI single, a hit-by-pitch and a run in a loss to Atlanta on Tuesday.
Laureano appeared no worse for wear while playing a full game in his center field, and he was able to contribute offensively in the high-scoring loss. Now apparently back to full health, the 28-year-old will look to gather some momentum heading into the offseason after what has been a forgettable suspension- and injury-shortened campaign, one where he's mustered a middling .224/.302/.393 slash line across 85 games....

Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Returns from IL
Laureano (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.
Laureano has been sidelined by the oblique strain since Aug. 14, but he's been cleared to rejoin the A's after a three-game rehab stint in the minors. The 28-year-old has a career-worst .695 OPS through 343 plate appearances this year and will attempt to finish the season strong now that he's healthy.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Second straight rehab game Sunday
Laureano (oblique) played seven innings for Single-A Stockton in right field Saturday and will serve as the designated hitter on Sunday before potentially rejoining the Athletics on Tuesday, the team's official site reports.
Laureano went 0-for-4 in the Ports' loss to San Jose, but of overriding importance was the fact he was able to play nearly a full game on defense without any apparent setbacks. Assuming the 28-year-old swings the bat pain-free in his DH role Sunday, it appears he'll have a clear path to Tuesday activation ahead of the first game of an interleague series with Atlanta....

Athletics' Ramon Laureano: Targeting Tuesday return
Laureano (oblique) is on pace to return against the Braves on Tuesday, according to manager Mark Kotsay, Byron Kerr of MLB.com reports.
Laureano made his first rehab appearance in Single-A Stockton on Thursday as the designated hitter, and he went 2-for-4 with a strikeout. In the majors this season, the 28-year-old outfielder currently holds a career-worst .695 OPS.... See More ... See Less
