It has been a rough two months for Oakland Athletics outfielder Ramon Laureano, who underwent core surgery following an injury while working out on his own.
The surgery comes less than two months after the fourth-year player was suspended 80 games when he tested positive for a performance-enhancing substance. He still will have 27 games remaining on his suspension next season.
According to the club, Laureano is expected to ready for spring training in February.
The 27-year-old, who gave up his spot in center field after the arrival of Starling Marte and moved to right field, batted .246 with 14 home runs and 39 RBIs in 88 games this season. He is a career .263 hitter with 49 home runs and 150 RBIs in 313 games, all with the A’s.
