Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Alec Burleson, Tanner Bibee, Luis Matos

For Week 10, I have some fantasy baseball trade advice including sell-high veterans and a couple of real buy-lows. The possible returns for the sell-high candidates probably won’t be too high, but it’s all about balancing out your fantasy baseball roster via trades.

Here are the six buy-lows and sell-highs for Week 10 of the fantasy baseball season. Happy trading!

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice (Week 9)

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Buy Low

Alec Burleson (OF – STL)

Alec Burleson has been heating up lately. For the past two weeks, he hit .390 while racking up two HRs, two SBs and 16 hits. His playing time doesn’t seem to be in jeopardy either.

Yes, he has played against right-handed pitchers more often. He has 97 ABs against right-handers compared to just 26 ABs against left-handers. He’s hitting .320 against righties and .231 against lefties.

The Cardinals are playing better, and Burleson is helping them and should be a regular in the lineup now. If you’re in a five-outfielder or a three-outfielder league, he’s worth consideration. You might be able to grab him off waivers since he’s rostered in under 30% of leagues.

Tanner Bibee (SP – CLE)

Perhaps Tanner Bibee is being overlooked in your league. He is just 2-1 in 10 games started. His 3.93 ERA and 1.23 WHIP are leaving some managers underwhelmed. He has also only pitched over six innings just twice this year. Last year, Bibee finished with a 10-4 record and a 2.98 ERA.

Some managers might be expecting better results, and if they haven’t paid attention to Bibee’s last seven starts, where he has posted a 3.23 ERA, you could still get a solid starter at a lower price. Bibee pitches for a good team and his next two starts are against the Angels and Nationals. If he pitches well, then the price for obtaining Bibee will, of course, be higher.

Luis Matos (OF – SF)

Luis Matos is coming off a great week. Since being called up on May 12, he is hitting .324 with two HRs and 17 RBIs in 34 AB. After a disappointing last year, many managers were down on Matos.

Like Burleson, Matos could still be available in your league. I wouldn’t pay a high price for him, but with the Giants losing Jung Hoo Lee for the season, Matos will be given every chance to keep the starting job in centerfield. If you need an extra outfielder, even if it’s just an emergency starter situation, Matos should be considered.
