Fantasy Baseball Players to Buy Low

Which one MLB player are you trying to buy low and why? Also, who are you willing to give up for him?

Christopher Morel (2B,3B,OF – CHC )

“I still believe in Christopher Morel. Even though his batting average has now dropped below 200, he is actually showing improvements in most areas that should help with his batting average. He has a career-best strikeout percentage of 22% and is walking 11% of the time. That means his expected batting average is also a career-best 256, but he is just getting unlucky. Plus, he is still providing power and speed with 13 home runs and seven stolen bases.”
– Corey Pieper (Fantasy Six Pack)

Freddy Peralta (SP – MIL )

“Freddy Peralta has had some rough outings lately, but over the last 6 weeks, his xFIP is still 3.71 while his ERA is above 5 over that span. Peralta still offers elite level strikeout production (11.6 K.9) and pitches for a competitive Brewers team. If I could flip a Jared Jones (who’s been shaky of late) for Peralta I’d make that deal in a heartbeat. Freddy P. will be relevant down the stretch. I can’t say with confidence that Jones will be. ”
– Joe Pisapia (FantasyPros)

Randy Arozarena (OF – TB )

“I said this earlier in the year and it didn’t pay off, but now I’m back to double-down. It’s been an awful first part of the year, as he sports a .211 BABIP, which is one of the worst in baseball. Things are starting to turn though, as he is hitting .275 in June. He had over 28 K% each month of the year until his month, where it has dropped to just 13%. He’s seeing the ball better as he’s pulling the ball over 50% of the time and has a higher line drive percentage in June than both of April and May’s percentages combined. It’s a good time to get him on the cheap. ”
– Christopher Welsh (FantasyPros)

Pablo Lopez (SP – MIN )

“A buy low is supposed to feel uncomfortable. While Pablo Lopez was drafted in the first few rounds this season, he hasn’t come close to that value. Coming off another bad start on Tuesday against the Rays, this is the perfect time to pry him away from a frustrated manager. Lopez has a 26.3% strikeout rate, 5.3% walk rate and an xERA of 3.28. The actual ERA is 5.63, and Lopez has been hurt by a 1.8 HR/9, and his career average is 1.12. Ryan McMahon or Giancarlo Stanton could get it done.”
