Chris Welsh is here to share his favorite buy-low and sell-high trade targets for Week 5 of the fantasy baseball season!

Ready to make some smart moves in your fantasy baseball league? In the latest video from FantasyPros MLB, host Chris Welsh dishes out some valuable trade advice on who to buy low and sell high as we head into Week 5 of the 2024 season. He also talks about the FantasyPros My Playbook tool, which is designed to aid fantasy managers in making informed decisions, and invites viewers to participate in a FREE giveaway.

Joe Pisapia and Chris Welsh have you covered throughout the fantasy baseball season on the FantasyPros Baseball Podcast and daily in-season via Leading Off.

Fantasy Baseball Trade Targets

What makes fantasy sports so much fun? All pseudo-GMs have their own specific answer to this question, but odds are high that most responses would deal with the fact that the landscape is always changing.

There’s always new data to explore and new opinions to be formed. Plus, the collective fantasy community is wrong on so much. If the consensus opinion on every player was always right, then there would be no reason to trade! Chris Welsh has some suggestions on what those moves could be, so stick around to see who he’s looking to trade for… or away.

Welsh starts off with a sell recommendation for Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Teoscar Hernandez. Despite a strong start, Hernandez’s underlying stats, such as a high strikeout rate and lower barrel percentages, suggest his current performance might not sustain. This makes him an ideal sell-high candidate.

On the buy side, Welsh is high on San Diego Padres second baseman Xander Bogaerts. Despite a rough start, Bogaerts’s expected batting average and solid plate discipline point to a potential turnaround. Welsh suggests this could be a great time to buy low on a player who’s likely to rebound soon.
