If you are in the middle or bottom of the pack in your league, you might need to make a trade to get your team back into contention. Here are a few players who have terrific pedigree but for one reason or another have yet to produce this season:
Justin Turner — Coming into this year, Fantasy owners looked to Dodgers 3B Justin Turner as a bedrock for their rosters. However, before the season Turner broke his wrist and missed time. He is 63 at-bats into his return, and we have yet to see the power we have been expecting from him. Wrists are a tricky thing. Former Cubs 1B Derrek Lee was never the same after he injured his wrist, which seemed to sap his power. Turner, however, is not only not hitting for power, but he’s also not hitting on the whole. Look for him to start hitting for average soon. After that happens, watch to see if Turner’s power begins to resurface after getting some confidence at the plate.
Marcell Ozuna — SiriusXM Fantasy Baseball’s Craig Mish wrote on Twitter (@craigmish) on May 31 that Ozuna had been watching video and found a change in his stance from last season to this season. Mish then predicted that Ozuna would get hot. Well, it’s only been two days since that tweet came out but Ozuna is 5-for-10 over the past three days with two HRs and five RBIs. It just goes to show three things: 1) that Ozuna is a good enough hitter to fix his problems, 2) Craig Mish is a darn good reporter, and 3) Twitter can actually help your Fantasy Baseball team win!
