The A’s No. 1 prospect is on his way to the big leagues.
The 24-year-old was the No. 9 overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, and he was acquired, along with Cristian Pache, Ryan Cusick and Joey Estes, prior to the season as a key part of the trade that sent first baseman Matt Olson to Atlanta.
Langeliers has showcased his 60-grade power in the Minors, bashing 41 home runs since the start of last season. He also homered and took home MVP honors in the 2022 SiriusXM Futures Game.
But Langeliers also provides plenty of value behind the plate. He has one of the best arms of any Minor Leaguer at any position and threw out 42% of potential basestealers in 2021.
