DateQuestionAnswer
2019-08-16 12:00:00 (link to chat)Is Brett Phillips a decent under the radar, post-hype dart throw? The elite defense should at least give him plate appearances. Is there a Ramon Laureano V2 here?
(Carl from New York)
I guess he might be worth stashing, but the Royals haven't even really made space to give him a shot yet and he's already 25 (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-02-25 16:00:00 (link to chat)Who is your sleeper breakout player. A non top 150 guy who will make the leap to top 25 value.
(Simon from Atlanta)
Jeebus, Kyle Lewis just crushed one halfway to New Mexico.

That's a pretty high bar to clear--150+ to top 25. Excluding rookies like Kyle Tucker, Nick Senzel, or Peter Alonso, I'll give some 150+ names that could improve significantly (if not top 25): Amed Rosario, Jesse Winker, Luke Voit, Ramon Laureano, Hunter Renfroe, Manny Margot, Josh James, Tyler Skaggs. Off the top of my head. (Jon Hegglund)
2019-02-08 11:00:00 (link to chat)So who are some traditionally big name OFers who will be outperformed by Ramon Laureano this year?
(Vic from Baltimore)
Depends on how you define big name, but PECOTA does have him pegged to beat quite a few guys. Matt Trueblood wrote about this ... we'll find the link for you and update this ... found it https://www.baseballprospectus.com/news/article/46994/the-lineup-card-13-noteworthy-pecota-projections-2019/ (item 3) (Harry Pavlidis)
2018-09-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Ramon Laureano - is this who he is? Looks like his BABIP has returned to a level he sustained in the minors. Did the As get a steal, and is he a 20/20 guy in fantasy?
(jmor1717 from internets)
He's a tremendous athlete who I think will run an above-average BABIP. That said, almost no-one runs a .375. I wouldn't expect the average to continue. I think they've done really well with the trade. The threat to him reaching 20-20 might be continued rotation by the A's, who love to platoon. (Darius Austin)
2018-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Ottoneu-style dynasty league trade advice needed please!! I've been offered Ryan Mountcastle and Ramon Laureano in exchange for 1B mashers Ryan O'Hearn and Luke Voit. Should I do it?
(Tammy Tabernacle from Timbuktu)
I think I'd do that. I prefer the Mountcastle and Laureano upside a good bit more. (Mark Barry)
2018-09-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are Austin Dean and Ramon Laureano keepers? Full-time players in 2019? And what are chances that Austin Gomber remains a starter in 2019?
(Slappy from NC)
I imagine Laureano will be in Oakland's plans, but I can't predict with any confidence what the Marlins will do. Dean doesn't have any "L's" in his name, so that has to work out in his favor.

I think the Cardinals' rotation is probably too crowded for Gomber to see regular action, although their staff hasn't exactly been the beacon of health, so he'll get some starts. (Mark Barry)
2018-05-25 12:15:00 (link to chat)Oakland's Tyler Ramirez and Ramon Laureano; are either likely to be more than 4th outfielders?
(Old Timer from Raleigh NC)
I know we had some internal love for Laureano before the trade but I think that star has mostly dimmed to the range you're talking about. We don't have a ton on Ramirez, but I think based on what I know he fits into that mold as well, since he's not much of a power bat and doesn't have the speed you usually see in center. (Craig Goldstein)
2017-03-09 20:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Ramon Laureano, OF, Houston and RP Jonathan Holder of NYY?
(JAS from MN)
For Scoresheet, we're targeting Laureano in a number of our drafts. We've discovered in the past that players like Laureano (international players who weren't bonus babies) tend to be undervalued by Scoresheet owners, and I think he's close enough to be a good buy opportunity. Holder, like a lot of "star" relief prospects, is off our board. He has options, which hurts him in 2017, and he's not protectable, so talent aside, he slides well down a list. (Ben Murphy, Ian Lefkowitz and Jared Weiss)
2016-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Should we be excited about the season HOU OF Ramon Laureano just put up between high A and AA?
(Jay from NY)
Wilson liked him when he saw him for Lancaster this year, but more in the good fourth outfielder kind of way. Is turning a 16th round JuCo pick into a potential major league contributor exciting? I think so, but YMMV. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Greg Allen, Franchy Cordero and Ramon Laureano all carried over their production after reaching AA this season. LaMonte Wade, Magneuris Sierra and Cedric Mullins hope to do the same in 2017. Rank these by likelihood of becoming an above-average everyday player, and by which will have the most exciting peak season (wearing rose-colored glasses).
(Oliver from Boston)
I was really impressed with Allen in a couple looks this year. I don't think he's an impact fantasy player or anything, but he has great feel to use his speed on the bases and his approach is excellent, to where he should be able to get on base, steals some bags, and score some runs. Franchy...I'm really surprised at his outburst at AA, frankly. He's got a ton of athleticism and quick-twitch to him, but both the swing and approach were real suspect in High-A. Never bet against athletes, but I put a 30 on his hit tool for a reason. And Laureano's a solid player who improved legitimately during his stint at Lancaster, which is not always easy to do. He's not as elite a speedster (or power guy) as the numbers this year would suggest, but there's a second-division profile there. I'd go Allen, Laureano, Cordero out of those guys. (Wilson Karaman)
