The chance that Carlos Gomez keeps up his .370 BABIP is slim, making him a great sell-high candidate.

Finally, Longoria's 19.7 percent line-drive rate and 46.2 percent fly-ball rate are out of line with a .351 BABIP. His career BABIP is also .307, so as he works his way back to that, his rates will come down. I'm not suggesting you go out and sell him simply because of this. He's still a top player at a shallow position and he has 14 home runs. I'd just recommend that you're open to putting him on the market and seeing what sort of return he can net you.
