Ramon Laureano (OF, OAK) - Week 5 Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Leagues

OWNED IN: 8% of leagues

ANALYSIS: Ramon Laureano has had a mixed bag to start the year. He’s had three homers and two stolen bases, but it comes with a .247 average. His defense will keep him on the field, so at-bats should never be an issue. The power and speed combination is tough to leave on the waiver wire, or even the bench for that matter. However, he'll need to do better than a 13.7% swinging strike rate to maximize either his speed or pop. Oakland gets six games this week on the road in Boston and Pittsburgh. Laureano will get to enjoy five right-handed pitchers, against whom he is hitting .281 this year. Don't get too focused on the past and ride with him knowing that he can go off at any moment.
