Christian Yelich News
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich went 2-for-3 with a three-RBI double, a walk, and two runs scored in Saturday's 7-4 win over Pittsburgh. The outfielder had a key hit Saturday, as his three-run double in the fourth inning gave Milwaukee its first lead. Yelich has three doubles in the last four games and appears to be finding his timing at the plate. He's slashing .248/.406/.396 with three home runs, 14 RBI, 25 runs scored, and four doubles across 128 plate appearances this season. He may be starting to get his power back after an injury-riddled start to his campaign.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich went 1-for-4 with a two-run double, a walk and a run scored in Friday's 7-4 win over Pittsburgh. Yelich slapped a two-run double and came around to score during a five-run seventh inning. He has four extra-base hits and 10 walks in nine games this month. The 29-year-old outfielder is slashing .235/.395/.378 through 124 plate appearances this season but he appears to be finding his stride at the plate.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run scored in Saturday's 7-5 win over Arizona. Yelich put Milwaukee ahead for good with his eighth-inning crush job. It's his second homer in the last three games. For the year, the outfielder is slashing .256/.390/.402 with three homers, nine RBI, 21 runs scored, and four stolen bases across 100 plate appearances. Finally, fantasy owners are starting to see some dividends.
Milwaukee Brewers superstar Christian Yelich was one of the biggest disappointments of the 2020 fantasy baseball season, slashing just .205/.356/.430 with 12 HR and four steals over 247 PAs after two MVP-caliber campaigns. Part of the problem was likely bad luck, as his average exit velocity was a little bit better than 2019 on both airborne batted balls (97.1 mph vs. 96.7) and grounders (91.5 vs. 90.9). Furthermore, his .250 xBA and .476 xSLG were both better than his actual numbers. Unfortunately, there are also some troubling signs in his profile. Yelich's Swing% fell from 45.2 in 2019 to 34.6% last season, leading to passivity at the plate that sent his K% soaring to 30.8% from 20.3% in 2019. His FB% also slipped back under 30 after a 35.9% mark in his huge 2019, likely playing a role in his rate of Brls/BBE falling from 15.8% in 2019 to 12.1%. His Statcast Sprint Speed also fell to 28.1 ft./sec from 28.7, suggesting that he may not run as often in the future. Yelich is likely to be better in 2021 than he was in 2020, but his ADP of 11.69 may not adequately reflect the risk that his batting average and stolen bases fail to completely rebound.
