MLB Trade Advice: Buy Low and Sell High Candidates for Week 12

  • 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 is 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, with buy-lows on Justin Verlander and Nathan Eovaldi before his heater, 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

    Manny Machado

    This might have the potential to be a league-winning buy-low opportunity for owners. Machado was drafted as a relatively high asset and hasn’t returned much value so far with a .249 batting average, 7 home runs, 22 RBIs, and 2 stolen bases. The window is starting to close here since we all know what Machado is capable of along with him heating up in June. Through 45 at-bats he is slashing .311 with 2 homers, 3 RBI, and 10 walks. The contact rate is rising and the underlying metrics seem to be improving. I’m willing to bank on the talent here and buy stock in Manny!
