The Top 5 Players to Buy Low and to Sell High
1). Carlos Beltran STL OF 28 R 13 HR 32 RBI 5 SB .295 AVG
Beltran’s power surge is completely out of line with the rest of his career. Add in his propensity to get injured and it all adds up to a player you’re better off sending away for a high reward.
2). Bryan LaHair CHC 1B 16 R 9 HR 20 RBI 1 SB .356 AVG
Odds are a 29 year old making his full season major league debut will not continue to hit at this rate. A regression to the mean or median is likely in LaHair’s near future…probably.
3). Rafael Furcal STL SS 25 R 2 HR 16 RBI 7 SB .370 AVG
Furcal should continue to produce solid numbers, but his average and runs should see a bit of a drop off. I’m not as concerned about injury possibilties because he actually entered this season healthy.
4). Melky Cabrera SF OF 21 R 2 HR 14 RBI 5 SB .338 AVG
Cabrera has been known for his prolonged hot streaks and prolonged slumps. Add in less then stellar support around him and it could lead him to seeing less and less good pitches to hit.
5). Carlos Ruiz PHI C 16 R 6 HR 23 RBI 0 SB .340 AVG
Nothing about Ruiz’s profile says he will keep up this pace. You can find similar catcher production on the free agency wire.
1). Albert Pujols STL 1B 10 R 1 HR 12 RBI .197 AVG
After a month long drought and producing numbers that would make Mario Mendoza blush, all signs point to Pujols turning it around and producing at his normal clip! Grab him now at half the price!
2). Ryan Zimmerman WAS 3B 13 R 1 HR 8 HR 2 SB .241 AVG
Zimmerman is on the verge of coming back off the DL, so it’s a perfect time to grab a top 5 3B. Great candidate to produce across the board for your team.
3). Ben Zobrist TB 2B/OF 21 R 6 HR 16 R 2 SB .218 AVG
Everything on the stat line for Zobrist has fallen into place except for his average. Zobrist will produce a 20/20 season and produce these stats at a premium position. Buy low before his owners realize what they actually have.
4). Eric Hosmer KC 1B 16 R 5 HR 17 RBI 1 SB .174 AVG
With how much Hosmer was crushing the ball, a start like this seems completely ridiculous. It’s not possible for this trend continue. With Hosmer’s power and his normal line drive numbers, expect him to start producing at a much higher rate.
5). Brian McCann ATL C 14 R 5 HR 1 SB .231 AVG
McCann went from being the league’s best offensive catcher to just plain “meh” the first few months this year. He’s only 27. He’s going to hit. Grab him because Piggy gonna start going to the trough on the constant.
