The 25 year-old enjoyed a breakout month of July before hitting the injured list
Oakland Athletics outfielder Ramón Laureano has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a stress reaction in his right shin, according to A’s manager Bob Melvin.
“We’re going to have to shut him down for a while. He’s not going to be back in ten days,” Melvin stated.
Laureano had recently enjoyed an incredible month of July that saw him win American League Player of the Week honors.
