Laureano (hip) will start in center field and bat second Wednesday against the Angels.
After being reinstated from the injured list earlier in the day, Laureano will occupy his normal spot in the outfield and in the batting order in what will mark his first start since May 27. Prior to missing time with the hip injury, Laureano was arguably been the top fantasy contributor on Oakland's roster. Over his 205 plate appearances on the season, Laureano has hit .257 with 11 home runs, eight stolen bases, 30 runs and 22 RBI.
Laureano (hip) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Laureano ran the bases Tuesday, and he won't require a rehab assignment before returning to the active roster. The 26-year-old had been on the injured list since May 28 due to a right hip strain, but he should be available for Oakland going forward. Skye Bolt was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.
Laureano (hip) is scheduled to run the bases Tuesday and could be activated from the injured list Wednesday if all goes well, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Manager Bob Melvin said over the weekend the team hadn't decided whether the 26-year-old would require a rehab assignment before being activated, and it appears they decided a trip to the minors won't be necessary. Even if he's not activated Wednesday, there's a strong chance Laureano is back for the series against the Yankees this weekend following Thursday's scheduled off day.

The skipper said they'll wait to see how Laureano feels after he takes live at-bats and runs the bases Monday before deciding whether he needs to go on a rehab assignment. In either scenario, Laureano seems to have a strong chance of returning to Oakland's lineup at some point within the next week, assuming he doesn't suffer a setback in the coming days.
Laureano (hip) is scheduled to face live pitching Monday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Laureano has been out with a right hip strain since May 27. The center fielder resumed baseball activities earlier this week and will face live pitching Monday. Assuming he comes out of Monday's workout feeling well, the next step will likely be to go on a minor-league rehab assignment. If all goes to plan, Laureano could rejoin the Athletics' lineup within the next week.
Laureano (hip) anticipates going on a rehab assignment to build up his stamina, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Laureano hasn't participated in game action since May 27 but is nearing a return after participating in batting practice Thursday. Though he said he wouldn't need at-bats during a rehab assignment, he noted that it would helpful to play a game or two to regain his stamina.
Laureano (hip) participated in a full workout on the field ahead of Thursday's game against the Royals, Alex Coffey of The Athletic reports.
Laureano ran Wednesday and felt good afterward, so the team is continuing to increase his baseball activity. Manager Bob Melvin isn't yet sure whether the outfielder will require a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Athletics, and the team will monitor his progress in the coming days to determine his status. The 26-year-old has been on the 10-day injured list since June 1 due to a strained right hip.
Laureano has no structural damage in his hip and is tentatively scheduled to resume running sometime next week, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
The center fielder landed on the 10-day IL with a right hip strain earlier this week and received a cortisone shot and PRP injection Friday. With the plan being for him to resume running next week, Laureano will certainly miss more than the minimum 10 days. With that said, it's still unclear when the 26-year-old could return to the lineup, though a timeline could come into focus within the next week. Tony Kemp, Chad Pinder and Stephen Piscotty should all continue to see increased usage in the outfield with Laureano out.
Laureano was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a strained right hip, retroactive to May 28, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Manager Bob Melvin indicated after Monday's loss to the Mariners that the 26-year-old would likely move to the IL, and the roster move is now official. Laureano was previously reported to be dealing with soreness in his right groin, but the issue is now being classified as a right hip strain. He'll be eligible to be activated next week, though it's unclear what his timeline will be. Skye Bolt was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move.
Athletics manager Bob Melvin said after Monday's 6-5 loss to the Mariners that Laureano (groin) will likely be placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Laureano's sore right groin kept him on the bench for a fourth straight game Monday, but the Athletics were initially hopeful he would be able to move past the issue in expedient fashion and avoid a trip to the IL. Unfortunately for the Athletics, Laureano still didn't feel right after taking batting practice Monday, so the team seems content to shut him down for the next week or so with the hope that the extended rest will resolve the issue. Laureano's impending move to the IL should open up more reps in the outfield for a combination of Seth Brown, Stephen Piscotty, Tony Kemp and Chad Pinder.
Laureano (groin) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners.
For a fourth straight game, Laureano will be relegated to a bench role while he manages a tight right groin. The Athletics are still listing Laureano as day-to-day, so the club is seemingly hopeful that he'll avoid a trip to the injured list and return to the lineup at some point during the three-game series in Seattle. Mark Canha will shift over from left field to cover center field in Laureano's stead.
Laureano (groin) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The 26-year-old will sit for the third consecutive contest while dealing with tightness in his right groin. Manager Bob Melvin said Saturday that Laureano had shown some improvement, but the outfielder still isn't ready to rejoin the lineup.

Laureano is still considered day-to-day. Mark Canha will shift to center field while Chad Pinder starts in left field Saturday.
Laureano isn't in Friday's lineup against the Angels due to right groin tightness, Justice delos Santos of MLB.com reports.
Manager Bob Melvin said that Laureano will be evaluated Saturday to determine the extent of his injury, but it's not yet clear whether he could be available off the bench Friday. If Laureano is forced to miss additional time, Tony Kemp and Chad Pinder could see increased playing time in the outfield.

Laureano went 3-for-5 with a double in a win over the Angels on Saturday.
The hot-hitting outfielder's second consecutive multi-hit effort pushed his tally at the plate over the last two games to an incandescent 7-for-9, a stretch during which he's laced a pair of two-baggers and a home run. The surge has given Laureano's season average a much-needed and immediate 30-point boost to .267, while his OPS has shot up 72 points to an impressive .870.

The 26-year-old is a speed threat as well, leading Oakland with eight steals. He is among the top five in all of baseball in combined home runs and steals. In 179 plate appearances, Laureano is slashing .256/.330/.525 with 21 RBI and 28 runs.

Laureano took Christian Javier deep in the first and fourth innings to up his season home-run total to 10, but arguably his biggest play of the game came in the ninth when he scored Mark Canha from third on a sacrifice fly to win his team the game. The 26-year-old had his first multi-hit game since May 5 as he raised his slash line to .248/.319/.510 with 25 runs scored, 20 RBI and eight stolen bases.
Laureano has started the Athletics' past five games since missing last Sunday's series finale against the Rays and is 4-for-19 with a home run and two RBI across the 19 plate appearances covering that span.
The talented outfielder is working on a modest three-game hitting streak entering Sunday's game against the Twins and provided his eighth home run of the season Friday night. Laureano is slashing .239/.308/.472 across 37 games this season, with his slugging percentage standing out from the rest of his line courtesy of the fact 15 of his 34 hits have gone for extra bases.
Laureano (thumb) will start in center field and bat third Tuesday against the Red Sox, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Laureano's right thumb injury kept him out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rays, but manager Bob Melvin suggested he was withheld from the starting nine mainly as a precaution. After a team off day Monday, Laureano is ready to play again, as expected. The 26-year-old has gotten off to an excellent start to his fourth MLB season, batting a modest .244 but providing seven home runs and eight stolen bases through his first 137 plate appearances.
