Yepez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 7-3 extra-inning win over the Blue Jays. Starting at DH and batting fifth, Yepez took Jose Berrios deep in the seventh inning. The 24-year-old continues to prove he belongs in the majors, and through his first 18 big-league games, he's slashing .304/.377/.522 with four homers, seven RBI and 13 runs.
Yepez went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and one strikeout during Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Mets. Yepez opened the scoring with a solo blast off Mets starter Chris Bassitt in the second inning. The rookie added singles in the fourth and eighth innings to notch his seventh multi-hit game and the first three-hit contest of his short career.
Yepez is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports. Yepez went 0-for-4 with a strikeout during the matinee and will head to the bench for Game 2 after starting 12 straight games since making his MLB debut May 4. Corey Dickerson will bat fifth as the designated hitter in the nightcap.
Yepez went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a 10-1 victory versus the Orioles on Wednesday. Though St. Louis scored 10 runs in the rout, Yepez's second-inning solo shot was the only homer of the contest. The long ball was the second of the rookie's career and extended his hitting streak to seven games to begin his big-league tenure. Yepez has been a revelation thus far, slashing .444/.483/.778 through 29 plate appearances. He has been one of the season's top pickups in fantasy.
Yepez went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Giants. Yepez got the Cardinals on the board with a two-run blast in the second inning and later scored again in the sixth. The 24-year-old's MLB career is off to a terrific start. He's 9-for-19 with four extra-base hits in his first five career games. As long as he's swinging a hot bat, Yepez should continue seeing regular playing time.
