Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Spencer Steer, Bo Bichette, Matt Olson

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Spencer Steer, Bo Bichette, Matt Olson

I included some bigger names in this week’s fantasy baseball trade advice article. Some of these players just need patience. It’s still a long season and plenty of time to turn things around. Trade away your shares of players playing well and you could help balance out your roster and/or give you additional strength wherever your preference is. It’s never too early to start some trade discussions

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice (Week 8)

Let’s look at this week’s fantasy baseball trade advice, including three players to trade for now.

Fantasy Baseball Trade Advice: Buy Low

Spencer Steer (OF – CIN)

Spencer Steer kind of had a safe fantasy production feel (if that is a thing) coming into this season. He hit .271 last year with 23 home runs and 15 stolen bases. Believing in him as a 20/20 player wasn’t far-fetched and he also hits in arguably the best ballpark for hitters. His current average of .248 is leaving something to be desired but it’s only the middle of May. It’s early and the possibility of 20 stolen bases seems like a lock since he’s already at 11. His walk rate and hard-hit percentage are higher, and his strikeout rate is lower than his final numbers from last season. He also has extra position eligibility, playing seven games at first and one game at second. He won’t be free, but in deeper leagues, I would be aggressive with some offers.

Bo Bichette (SS – TOR)

Bo Bichette is only hitting .218 with two home runs and a depressing .581 OPS. He has never finished a season hitting under .275, and that was in AAA. Toronto has been underwhelming and it’s not just Bichette who isn’t performing. George Springer is hitting just .200 and although Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is hitting .276, he has only four homers this year. This time last week Bichette was in a 3-40 slump. Since then, he is 7-16 with a home run. Patience is key here for Bichette. If you’re in a league with some nervous owners, I would make an offer.

Matt Olson (1B – ATL)

Like Toronto, Atlanta is not playing as well as originally expected. Ronald Acuna Jr. and Austin Riley are not putting up the expected numbers. Matt Olson is currently hitting .218 with five home runs. I would doubt Olson hits in the .280s with 54 homers again this year but I do believe better days are ahead. His strikeout rate is around the same as it has been over the last two seasons. Also, his launch angle and exit velocity are higher.

I keep hearing Olson’s name thrown around as a player to be concerned about. At some point, fantasy owners will need to decide on struggling players but with a veteran like Olson, patience is essential. Speaking of, I have to admit I was surprised to find Olson is only 30. So, yeah, if fantasy owners want to move on from the “struggling” Olson, I’d throw out some offers.
