Sell High Candidates

  • Shelby Miller
    • 1-4 with a 6.94 ERA is disgusting. But Miller has been a little better as of late. In his three full seasons in the majors he has posted ERA's of 3.06, 3.74 and 3.02. You have to imagine his ERA will even out and he will get back on track with a lot of starts left. 
  • Evan Gattis 
    • Gattis spent some time in the minors to work on his catching so he can be the backup to Jason Castro. Gattis can also play the OF and DH for Houston. Once he's eligible to play catcher in fantasy he'll could be very valuable as he'll provide the power many catchers around the league do not!
  • Albert Pujols 
    • If there is ever a chance to make a move for Pujols, it's right now. The Angels slugger is hitting just .197 on the year with a .268 OBP. He's a .310 career hitter with a .395 OBP. His value could not be any lower than it is now and you should be able to get him on the cheap. Pujols' average was down last year but he still managed to hit 40 home runs. 
  • Dee Gordon 
    • There is a chance this guy was dropped and if so, please go pick him up. Otherwise try to make a move for him, as his fantasy owners cannot expect much back. Gordon will be back after the all-star break and can be a huge steal for the second half. He's 100% worth the risk if you can get him for a good price. 
  • Chase Headley 
    • It's hard to argue that any player in the MLB got off to a worse start than Headley this year. Headley hit .150 with no extra base hits in the month of April but has started to turn things around in May. He's hitting .275 in May with two home runs and a double. He's been a spark for the Yankees hot offense of late. 
  • Troy Tulowitzki 
    • Fantasy owners were banking on a monster year from the slugging shortstop in his first full year with the Blue Jays and that powerful lineup. However Tulo is hitting just .200 with 8 home runs and 20 RBI. Maybe he's just not as good as people thought because he took advantage of Coors Field, or maybe he's still getting used to AL pitchers. Either way take a chance on him if you don't have to give up a ton to get him. 
  • Carlos Gomez 
    • IF this guy is still owned in your league, try to make a deal to get him, you shouldn't have to give up more than a bag of balls for him as he is hitting .182 with no home runs and 5 RBI. He's also striking out 38% of his at-bats. He might be the worst hitter in baseball right now but when and IF his bat gets going, we know how good he can be.
