As a fantasy baseball manager, I’m always looking to maximize my roster in any way possible. One of the oldest but sometimes misused tactics are buying low on players who are underperforming and selling high on players that are expected to regress in some capacity. This season I have been crushing it! Suggesting buy lows on Nathan Eovaldi and Christian Yelich while also recommending sell highs on James Outman and Patrick Wisdom. With that, I’m going to get into 3 guys that you should target as buy-low candidates and 3 guys you should look to trade based on their inflated value. A few names I might’ve mentioned on my Twitter (@Andrew_FBB) so you can check them out over there as well!
Undervalued Players to Buy
Someone who has dealt with injury after injury over the past few seasons. He has made a full return this season and so far has posted a 5-2 record, a 4.72 ERA, and a 65:14 K:BB in 55.1 innings pitched. Not a very Chris Sale-like stat line but that’s exactly why he is a buy-low candidate. Sale is a proven talent and we know he can be good and his underlying numbers support that. He has done a nice job limiting hard contact being in the 78th percentile in HardHit% and has a .214 xBA which is in the 79th percentile. Sale also has a 3.58 xERA which is more than a full run lower than his true 4.72 ERA. He is pitching well right now and the surface-level numbers aren’t supporting that so this could be a great time for you to buy in while the value isn’t there for some owners.
