Welcome to the 4-5-21 edition of Dynasty Baseball Buy or Sell. Be sure to check out all of our Dynasty Baseball content all year long.

PLAY BALL! We made it. Opening Day is finally here, and there are meaningful games being played. Spring Training is behind us; the cold and snowy winter is in our rear-view mirror, and crisp bright spring and summer are here to stay.

Opening weekend saw some satisfying moments. Walk-off home runs, extra-inning games, a bench-clearing brawl, a player starting a perfect 8-8 to begin his career, and many other notable moments.

Unfortunately, there was also an opening series that was postponed due to COVID concerns. So that was a reminder that COVID concerns are real and MLB is taking all the necessary precautions in order to keep the season on track.

Now let’s take a look at some players worth buying and selling. Make sure to check out Dave’s freshly updated 900+ Dynasty Rankings.

Randy Arozarena, OF, Tampa Bay Rays

Randy Exploded onto the baseball scene during the 2020 playoff and World Series run by the Rays.  If you’re not familiar, he hit a record-breaking 10HR in 20 games while slashing 377/442/831.

Many people want to frown at his postseason breakout, claiming the sample size is too small. Which I can agree with to an extent. However, when you look deeper that is far from the truth.

During his time in the St. Louis Minor League system, his wRC+ increased year after year from .124 in 2017 to .150 in 2019. The wOBA also increased from .357 in 2017 to .409 in 2019. Even at the major league level, the wOBA increased as well (.380 in 2019 to .422 in 2020).

His 17% K rate and 9% BB rate in 2017 and 18% K rate and 9.5% BB rate in 2019 showcase the above-average plate discipline. He was able to drop his SwStr% down to an abysmal 8.5% in 2019.

Randy is entering his 26-year-old season and is on the doorstep of his prime years. He is set to be the number 3 hitter for the Rays, and has the ability to spray the ball to all fields. His right-handed swing is full of power that generates tons of hard contact (44.2% hard-hit rate in 2020).

Another great attribute that Randy can bring to the table is his speed. He currently ranks in the 93rd percentile for sprint speed and was able to swipe 61 bags across 3 levels in 326 games in the minors.

Randy should easily be able to reach 20/20 consistently while batting in the 270 range while having a wRC+ of 125+ for the next several seasons.

Aaron Bracho, 2B, Cleveland Indians

The switching hitting Cleveland prospect is someone to take note of. He is listed at 5’11” 175lb, so a bit on the slight side. However, what he lacks in size he makes up for with his hit tool.

He makes solid contact but the power hasn’t quite been there. Although only being 19 he has room to grow, so the power numbers should increase as he continues to bulk up.
