Erick Aybar a sell-high option


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) It's time to shine the spotlight on Angels shortstop Erick Aybar, who probably has been a bit overlooked in Fantasy leagues. I did move him up in my shortstop rankings to 16th because of his recent surge.

Aybar hasn't totaled less than 12 Fantasy points over the last seven scoring periods and is averaging 20 Fantasy points per week in that span. Surprisingly, Aybar is the sixth-highest Fantasy scoring shortstop in Head-to-Head formats and ninth-highest in Rotisserie formats.

If you look at Aybar's numbers, they are pretty much par for the course outside of the fact he's on pace for 87 RBI and 42 doubles, which would both be career highs. Those numbers are definitely helping his Head-to-Head value since a closer look shows Aybar has just 10 more Fantasy points than Asdrubal Cabrera, who is the 12th-highest scoring Fantasy shortstop.

While Aybar deserves credit for how well he's performing offensively, he definitely is a sell-high candidate, so if you can flip him in a trade, then consider doing so.
