Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Jack Leiter, Alex Bregman, Randy Arozarena

This week I have six total players to consider adding or moving, including a couple of bigger-name players and a couple of reserve-role players. Here are all of our Week 7 fantasy baseball buy-low and sell-high trade candidates. Below we dive into a few notable names to trade now in fantasy baseball leagues.

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice

Let’s look at a few players to trade now in fantasy baseball leagues.

Buy Low

Randy Arozarena (OF – TB)

Randy Arozarena is hitting just .152 with 44 strikeouts in 132 at-bats. That’s not the production fantasy owners expected from a fifth/sixth-round pick. In the previous three seasons, Arozarena hit at least 20 home runs and stole at least 20 bases. He’s currently at six home runs and six stolen bases this season. Even with early struggles, he should still reach his 20/20 expectations. His career batting average low was last season at .254. I could see him hit .245 to .250 this year. If owners are searching to replace the struggling Arozarena, throw out some discount offers. His launch angle is currently higher this season than last and his K% is also better. Better times will come.

Alex Bregman (3B – HOU)

A .195 batting average with one home run and two stolen bases in 32 games is far from a .296 average with 41 home runs. Fantasy owners keep chasing that 2019 season of Alex Bregman. Those days are probably in the past, but Bregman is better than what he is currently producing. He started slowly last year with a .240 batting average in the first half before finishing with a .290 average in the second half. He’s in a contract year so he wants to perform better. Fantasy owners could be tired of dreaming about past years and are ready to move on from the third baseman. I would gamble that Bregman and the Astros will heat up sooner rather than later.

Jack Leiter (SP – TEX)

This buy-low pick is mainly for dynasty leagues. I wouldn’t say Jack Leiter isn’t necessary for redraft leagues, but I imagine he’s on the waiver wire. Leiter didn’t look good in his MLB debut. I suspect nerves and it being a road game helped contribute to the poor outing. He was sent back to the minors and has continued his resurgence this year. After struggling his first few years in the minors, Leiter has appeared to bounce back.

Leiter’s K/9 rate is up, his walk rate is down and his HR/9 is way down. I would expect Leiter to get the call back soon. The Rangers have Max Scherzer, Tyler Mahle and Jacob deGrom ready to come off the injured list (IL) later in the year, so Leiter owners might feel he will be put aside. That could happen but expect Leiter to perform better in his next stint up. If that does happen, owners will be less likely to move a top pitching prospect. Trade for Leiter now before he reaches the majors again.
