Christian Yelich News
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich is back in the starting lineup Thursday afternoon versus the St. Louis Cardinals and right-hander Dakota Hudson. Yelich did not appear in Wednesday's narrow 3-2 win over the Cardinals but will return to his familiar leadoff spot while manning left field on Thursday. The 31-year-old is enjoying his best season since his NL MVP runner-up season in 2019 here in 2023, hitting .275 with 19 home runs, 27 stolen bases, and an .810 OPS across 141 appearances on the campaign. His matchup on Thursday is a solid one as he has hit .291 with an .874 OPS versus right-handed pitching while Hudson has allowed a .299 average and an .817 OPS to left-handed hitters this season.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (back) has returned to the starting lineup on Friday against the Miami Marlins and right-hander JT Chargois. He is hitting leadoff and starting in left field. Yelich has barely played in the last two weeks due to a lingering back injury, but he's going to give it a go to start the weekend and hopefully he won't suffer any setbacks in the final stretch of the regular season before the playoffs. The 31-year-old left-handed hitter has had a nice bounce-back season in 2023, but he's also gone just 7-for-49 (.143) with a home run, one double, three RBI, 22 strikeouts and 10 runs scored in 14 games (13 starts) since Aug. 25. Fantasy managers that are plugging him back into their starting lineups will hope that his back injury is behind him and he can pick things up offensively.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (back) continues to sit out on Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals. Yelich has played for the Brewers just one time since Sept. 8 due to lingering back issues, and it's a surprise at this point that he hasn't been placed on the injured list. Mark Canha will get the nod in left field in this one and will hit third in the order against Cardinals right-hander Miles Mikolas. With just 10 games remaining in the 2023 regular season, fantasy managers may not see Yelich play another game as the Brew Crew looks to get him rested up for a potential lengthy playoff run. Yelich has had a nice bounce-back season for fantasy managers, but it's a shame that it appears to be ending on a low note.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich has not been himself since his two seasons of MVP ball in 2018 and '19. He has completely fallen off the map, and the Brewers are looking for a technique to reinvigorate Yeli's success. The 31-year-old mustered a .738 OPS in 2022 while smacking 14 HRs. He hit .252, and Yelich is improving his average by the year since hitting .205 in 2020. Yelich has always been a high strikeout hitter, and his 24.1% strikeout rate isn't the cause of his mishaps. His ISO numbers, however, have regressed exponentially since his MVP days. Yeli amassed a .130 ISO this past year, and we haven't seen much power from him in a while. Let's hope the California native can exceed ATC's projected .249/.343/.402 slash line with 17 homer runs and 15 stolen bases because we've all been waiting for the Yeli return. Most importantly, he's given a 125.32 ADP which is a good approximation considering his recent numbers.
