Christian Yelich News
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (neck) is back in left field and is hitting leadoff on Monday against the Colorado Rockies and right-hander Ryan Feltner. Yelich missed the last three games with neck soreness, but he'll return on Monday for the start of a series against the Rockies in hitter-friendly Coors Field. Fantasy managers will want to get the 30-year-old left-handed slugger back into their lineups, as Yelich has been very productive in his last 16 games, hitting .317 (19-for-60) with three home runs, 10 RBI and 12 runs scored. Overall, he's been a disappointment with his .259/.360/.387 slash line with 11 homers, 45 RBI, 83 runs scored and 16 stolen bases in 468 at-bats.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (neck) is not in the lineup on Sunday vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks. Yelich has now missed three straight games after exiting Thursday's contest vs. the D-Backs early with neck discomfort. Milwaukee is hoping he can avoid the injured list but fantasy managers still need to consider him day-to-day. The 30-year-old outfielder is slashing .259/.360/.387 with 11 long balls, 45 RBI, and 16 thefts over 468 at-bats on the season. Rookie Esteury Ruiz is batting ninth and starting in left field against Zac Gallen and the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Milwaukee Brewers skipper Craig Counsell said that outfielder Christian Yelich (neck) is day-to-day after leaving the game early on Thursday against the Arizona Diamondbacks with neck discomfort. "He just irritated his neck on one of the swings in that second at-bat. We're day-to-day. I think there's a chance he misses a couple of days but I wouldn't worry about it past that," Counsell said. Fantasy managers should prepare to be without Yelich for a few days, but it doesn't appear to be a long-term issue. Yelich went 0-for-2 with a strikeout before departing and is now hitting .259/.360/.387 on the season with 11 home runs, 45 RBI, 83 runs scored and 16 stolen bases. He finished the month of August hitting .255 (26-for-102) with three homers, 10 RBI, 18 runs scored and two stolen bases.
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.
