Seeing Los Angeles Angels outfielder Taylor Ward atop the Trade Value Chart is more than a little surprising. Out of nowhere in his fifth year in the majors, Ward has emerged as a real force. The right fielder is hitting a ridiculous .381 with a .492 OBP while chipping in across the board with 24 runs scored, eight homers, 22 RBIs, and one stolen base in 27 games played. Additionally, he has reached base safely in 10 consecutive contests. However, Ward’s previous career highs are underwhelming and regression could be coming fairly soon. Will Ward continue to dominate or should you trade him while his value is at its highest?
It’s Week 6 of the MLB and fantasy baseball season. Some players such as Ward have built on their hot starts, while others are starting to sputter and regress to the mean. Our Trade Value Chart has a lot of movement in both directions as another week of baseball is in the books. Let’s take a look at whose stock is skyrocketing and whose stock is plummeting while looking for some sell-high and buy-low opportunities.
