SCOUTING REPORT
Laureano was in the Oakland farm system until 2008, when Oakland released him, and the Pirates picked him up.  Laureano has always been a little older for the level he’s been at, and up until the 2010 season has mostly been used out of the bullpen.  Laureano has put up some decent numbers, but his age takes away from those numbers.  As he moves up, he will likely be relegated to more bullpen work as organizational depth.
