24-Year-Old OutfielderOF
Oakland Athletics
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Laureano burst onto the scene in August, turning heads with his bat and cannon of an arm. The 24-year-old quickly turned into Oakland's everyday center fielder and finished the season with a 129 wRC+ -- a mark that would have tied for fourth with Tommy Pham among qualified MLB center fielders. Granted, he had a 28.4% strikeout rate and .388 BABIP, which suggest he was playing a little over his head. Even when factoring in regression, Laureano still looks the part of an everyday player, especially given his defensive value. He hits the ball to all fields and did not show significant lefty/righty splits at Triple-A or in the majors, so he should hit at least .250 with double-digit home runs. A plus runner, Laureano was caught just three times on 21 stolen-base attempts last season, so he should push for 15-to-20 steals if he stays relatively healthy. Given his strong debut, he won't be available in the end game, but is a reasonable OF4 in 15-team leagues. Read Past Outlooks

Smacks third homer
OFOakland Athletics
April 12, 2019
Laureano went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-6 win over the Rangers.
ANALYSIS
He took Shawn Kelley deep in the seventh inning as part of a comeback from a 6-1 deficit. Laureano is slashing a mediocre .258/.281/.419 through 17 games, but he's maintaining solid fantasy value with three homers, one steal, eight RBI and nine runs.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
One of the top pop-up prospects of 2016, Laureano capped his breakout campaign by wowing scouts with consistent loud contact in the Arizona Fall League. This brief yet impressive showing helped alleviate concerns about batting averages over .400 on balls in play at stops at High-A Lancaster and Double-A Corpus Christi. Laureano's combined .319/.428/.528 slash line will not be sustainable as he moves to more neutral hitting environments and his BABIP normalizes. The general consensus, however, says he has at least an average hit tool, which, coupled with plus speed and a good eye at the plate, might be enough for him to make it as an everyday player. He stole 43 bases at a 75.4 percent success rate last year, but his speed projects more comfortably in the 20-steal range over a full season against big league batteries. That speed could be complemented by average raw power. He also walked 70 times in 116 games last year and might profile atop a mediocre lineup.
