Fantasy Baseball Players to Sell High

What one MLB player are you trying to sell high right now, and why? Also, who would you try to get in return?

Ezequiel Tovar (SS – COL )

“Ezequiel Tovar could hit 20 home runs and steal 20 bases this season. It would be shocking if it came with a batting average anywhere close to the .286 he is currently hitting. He has the worst plate discipline of any batter in all of baseball as he literally swings at anything. If you set your expectations to a season like we received from Anthony Volpe last season where he went 20-20 with a 209 average, that’s a safer bet than the 286 you’re currently getting from him.”
– Corey Pieper (Fantasy Six Pack)

Jordan Hicks (SP,RP – SF )

“Jordan Hicks is about to turn into a pumpkin, or at least a bullpen arm. Hicks had had varying success as a starter this year, and certainly, the Giants are right to consider him as a future rotation piece. However, Hicks hasn’t gone 6 innings in a start since April, and he has had some velocity issues of late as he reaches his innings cap. Oh, and Robbie Ray is already working his way back. His 2.82 ERA should be enough of a selling point, along with his dual SP/RP eligibility. His xERA is 3.95 and his K/9 is lagging of late as fatigue is clearly setting in, so it’s time to get what you can. Maybe a low-level closer would be a better investment for the second half of the season.”
– Joe Pisapia (FantasyPros)

“This is the time to try and sell Jordan Hicks. The transition from reliever to starter has gone well. Hicks has a 2.82 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. The concern is the strikeouts are way down as a starter at 21.3% and the walk rate of 8.8% prevents him from going deep into games. He has pitched 76.2 innings after throwing 137 innings combined the last three seasons. I would aim for a Lane Thomas or Tyler O’Neill.”
– Adam Ronis (SiriusXM Fantasy)

Carlos Correa (SS – MIN )

“No doubt Correa has been red hot. Eight of his last eleven games he’s registered two or more hits. His average is up over .300, with many underlying metrics being at least above average, including his hard hit rate and barrel percentage. All of this is great, and it is shades of the Correa we have always wanted. I don’t buy that it lasts, as it never does with Correa. His BABIP is .351, which is almost 40 points higher than his career average and the second-highest of his career by .01. His bat is hot, but he still provides nothing in the stolen base department, as he has not stolen a base since 2019. Finally, his very long injury history is staring us in the face. This seems like a great time to sell high on a decent shortstop in an injury-plagued time for fantasy. ”
