Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Colt Keith, Jake Meyers, Brandon Pfaadt (2024)

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Colt Keith, Jake Meyers, Brandon Pfaadt (2024)

This week’s article features two lower-rostered buy-low hitters and one buy-low pitcher who could be a nice addition as the season continues. On the sell-high candidates, I have an exciting young hitter and a veteran hitter who isn’t even 30 yet. Below is this week’s fantasy baseball trade advice for buy-low and sell-high candidates.

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice (Week 10)

Buy Low

Colt Keith (2B – DET)

At the end of April, I was concerned the Tigers might send Colt Keith back to the minors. For all of April, Keith hit .163, his slugging percentage was at .175 and he had zero home runs. In May, though, Keith is hitting .362, has a .500 slugging percentage and one home run. He will sit some against lefties, but if he can continue his turnaround, the Tigers could play him more regularly. Owners were expecting bigger things from Keith this season and could be looking to move on from him, maybe even in dynasty leagues. I don’t believe he’s a lost cause. Since he won’t cost much, I would be willing to make an offer.

Jake Meyers (OF – HOU)

Jake Meyers’ Statcast page has a lot to like. His strikeout rate is below 20%, his hard-hit rate is over 40% and his expected batting average is .300. With the weak outfield position this year, Meyers could be obtained at a low cost. He’s even available on the waiver wire in some leagues. Chas McCormick is back from the injured list (IL) but because he has struggled, Meyers looks to be the everyday starting CF with his current hitting. I would guess Meyers will be much more coveted in about a month, so I would get in line now and obtain him at a reduced price.

Brandon Pfaadt (SP – ARI)

Brandon Pfaadt is rostered in around 60% of leagues. Starting pitching is hard to come by and although Pfaadt isn’t in the top tier of starting pitchers, he could be a solid addition to your staff. In his last five starts, he has pitched at least six innings and hasn’t surrendered more than three earned runs. He has a 4.06 ERA and a WHIP of 1.07. His ground ball rate is just below 40%. One stat I like for Pfaadt is that he throws over 67% of his pitches for first-pitch strikes. Over 92% of first-pitch strikes lead to an out. The MLB average for pitchers throwing first-pitch strikes is 57%. Pfaadt pitches for a good team and there is no reason to believe he will lose a rotation spot. He will cost more than the previous two buy-low options, but a starting pitcher with an expected 3.00 ERA could help any fantasy team.
