There is nothing sexy about owning Trey Mancini, but he has rebounded quite nicely from his disappointing 2018 campaign. The underlying metrics suggest what we have seen in 2019 is the real Mancini so it wouldn't be wise to attempt selling high on him.

Mancini has really improved his strikeout rate this season, and his Statcast numbers say he's mostly earned his high batting average and solid power output with quality contact. Mancini overachieved a bit early on, but there's good reason to believe he can maintain quite a bit of fantasy value.

Although Mancini hit 24 homers in each of the last two seasons, his wRC+ fell from 118 to 93 in 2018. He has rebounded in 2019, slapping 17 homers with a 132 wRC+ through 52 games. May's slump might be a false alarm, as his slash line is back up to .300/.355/.533 following a strong June. While the high batting average may still make him a sell-high candidate, he's a strong corner infielder who will post strong counting numbers as a regular with locked-in playing time.
