Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Corbin Carroll, Christopher Morel, Chris Paddack

I have six players this week for consideration to buy low and sell high. When buying low, make sure you are getting a discount for a player you believe will help you down the stretch. For the sell high candidates, these players might have good seasons but if trading one of them makes your team more competitive, then it should be considered. Here is our Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice for this week to help you navigate deals in your leagues.

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice (Week 5)

Buy Low

Corbin Carroll (OF – ARI)

Many owners out there are probably getting frustrated with their first-round pick this year. With every game not being the breakout game that owners are expecting, the anxiety and annoyance grow. I believe in patience for talented hitters, especially early in the season. If you’re interested or can take a struggling Carroll into your team, I would see what owners would like in return. Don’t fool yourself though. You will still need to pay a good price for Carroll. Yes, he’s only batting .191 with just one home run, but owners still paid a high price for him. He will not put up the total numbers this season that he did last season but if he starts heating up, obtaining him will be difficult. You can get a 1st round talent right now at a discount.

Christopher Morel (3B –CHC)

Morel was a popular sleeper pick this season. He hit .247 with 26 home runs in 2023 and is currently only hitting .215 with four home runs. Some owners have voiced their frustration, but his batting percentage rankings are all above league average. He could easily match his home run total from this past season but as for his average, he probably is just a .250 career hitter. That’s not bad, not elite, but still a fantasy contributor. His average has raised in the past week and his strikeout rate is 11% lower than last season. So maybe the average will be higher than .250. If you need help at 3B, Morel has talent at a current discount.

Chris Paddack (SP – MIN)

First, check your waiver wire and see if Paddack is available. If he isn’t, then consider how bad your rotation is. If you are like most this season and your pitching staff is depleted, then you could consider Paddack. He hasn’t reclaimed the excitement that was surrounding him when he first broke into the league, but his name still brings interest to owners. His stat line against the White Sox brings the most buzz: 7 IP, 0 ER and 10Ks. Unfortunately, it was against the White Sox. He had a decent start against the Dodgers earlier in the year but couldn’t reach 5 IP. The Twins are playing better and until Paddack has multiple bad starts, they will continue to use him. Paddack won’t cost you much and I would view him the same as when MLB teams acquire pitchers to ‘eat up’ some innings. Throw him when it makes sense.
