Ramon Laureano already has seen three weeks into the A’s pending season.
At least, in simulated fashion, via the video game MLB The Show.
“So look, KD [Khris Davis] has eight homers, hitting .327,” Laureano said. “Chappy [Matt Chapman] is hitting .330-something with nine homers.”
OK, but what about Chapman’s Platinum Glove defense?
“Zero errors,” Laureano said. “He’s making the plays exactly like he makes in real life.”
Video games were part of Laureano’s college days, but something he hasn’t had time for in the last five years, as he broke into professional baseball.
