MLB Rumors: Oakland Athletics to Trade Outfielder

Although the rumor mill is buzzing with Sean Murphy, there's another Oakland Athletic who will also very likely be traded before the 2023 season - Ramon Laureano.

Laureano was shopped at the deadline last season, but the A's opted to keep him for the remainder of the campaign. However, now that it is the offseason, things are expected to change on that front. As the outfield market decreases via free agency, expect teams to make a bigger push to land Laureano.

Laureano is coming off of a bit of a down year, but injuries can be blamed for that. In 94 games on the year, he had 13 home runs, 34 RBIs, and a low .211 batting average. He certainly has the potential to bounce back, and a change of scenery could be exactly what allows that to occur.
