He's actually been going the right direction on that lately. Only a 20.3 K% in July. It was even better but he had 3 strikeouts yesterday.

 

And 2 Ks tonight but it's Cole so no big deal

Hope he don't go all A Riley on us

 

He's got some swing and miss to his game but it's nothing like Riley's struggles.

Laureano is at 26.9% K% and 13% swinging strike rate. 73% Contact%.  Not too far off MLB averages.

Riley is an ungodly 34.3% K%, 20.9% swinging strike rate, and 63% Contact%.

The link below is to  a new FanTrax article written by Mike Kurland about whether Laureano's recent production is a mirage or the legitimate break-out of a stud.

https://www.fantraxhq.com/deep-dive-is-the-ramon-laureano-breakout-for-real/

 

The piece includes Statcast data charting of and evaluation of splits, batted ball data, plate discipline, etc.

Dig in.

Shin issue bad enough to get an MRI, bet on IL.

Is that where he got HBP?

FWIW I had a shin stress reaction last year and the doctor told me no running for two months, then ease your way back into it. But I'm over 40 so I would think 4 weeks is a pretty good bet for a young professional athlete getting full time care. I wouldn't bank on him running much when he's back though.

Someone in the platforms thread said that blurb about the A's having put him on the IL was incorrect.  They will but haven't yet and intil they do ALL platforms have to refrain jumping the gun.

Huge blow to the As, especially that OF defense. Though the dude was raking with the bat. Martini is a pure LF, good hit tool, but brings nothing else to the table. I guess Canha will play CF? Would love to see Dustin Fowler get another look, but he's buried in AAA.

Grossman used to play CF pretty decently from what I remember. Sucks that this guy got hurt. He was really balling.

Totally was wrong about this guy. Reverse smurf jinx always the best as he raked while in my lineup. Unfortunately the smurf injury curse also got him.

He did seem to improve his plate discipline. If he can make another step there then we'd have a legit star.
