2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE FALLOUT: BRAVES STAY AGGRESSIVE ON TRADE FRONT BY ACQUIRING SLUGGER ADAM DUVALL

The Atlanta Braves can almost smell the 2018 postseason and so they made another move to increase their chances of reaching such a destination late Monday by picking up slugging outfielder Adam Duvall from the Cincinnati Reds.  Still young at the age of 29, Duvall is very good in terms of the power game as he heads south with 15 home runs and 61 RBI in 370 at-bats but the limitations come in the form of his annually shaky batting average which currently remains VERY ugly at just .205.  A 27.0 K/9 is a major reason why Duvall has been so hideous on the average front and honestly he has been nothing but an up-and-down OF 3 or bench bat in yearly fantasy baseball leagues since he made his full-season debut in 2016.  What Duvall does have going for him is moving to another launching pad ballpark and another extended power push is likely given the friendly hitting atmosphere in Atlanta.  Be that as it may, Duvall is just a bit player in today's fantasy baseball and this won't change going to his new locale.
