Buy Low Candidates

  • Jackie Bradley Jr. 
    • Is there a hotter hitter on the planet than JBJ? What player batting in the 9 hole half way through May ever hit .330 with 6 home runs and 30 RBI? Probably nobody. He's just a .232 career hitter and strikes out over 22% of his at-bats so it's not likely he keeps this up.
  • Welington Castillo
    • Castillo has been one of the most productive catchers offensively this season. He currently is hitting .299 with 7 home runs and 19 RBI. Castillo hit .237 the past two seasons with on OBP under .300. It's only a matter of time before he comes back down to earth and with his backup Chris Herrmann hitting well, there might be more off days in Castillo's future.
  • Chris Carter
    • Carter has enjoyed his short time in Milwaukee so far, hitting .254 with 11 home runs and 26 RBI. His average is currently 34 points higher than his career average and he's beginning to slow down as his OBP is under .300 for the month of May.
  • Mark Trumbo
    • This is a guy you definitely want to sell very soon. Trumbo is having a great season in Baltimore hitting .307 with a .362 OBP, 11 home runs and 28 RBI. However for his career he's never hit better than .268 in any season or had a higher OBP than .317.
  • Nick Castellanos
    • Could this be the breakout year for the 24 year old third baseman? Absolutely. But there is no way he's making this big of a jump from a year ago. Castellanos is currently hitting .344 with 7 home runs and 28 RBI. His average is 89 points higher from a season ago and his OBP is 71 points higher. He is still striking out 24% of his at-bats and he will not be able to keep up this pace until he cuts down on his K's.
  • Aledmys Diaz
    • Diaz has been a nice story this year filling in for the injured Jhonny Peralta. Diaz is hitting .376 with 6 home runs and 20 RBI. With Peralta set to begin rehab games this week, he is very close to returning and will regain his job at shortstop. This would either move Diaz to second base or have him be a utility player moving forward.
