Brewers' Christian Yelich: Three-hit effort in loss
Yelich went 3-for-4 with a double, a hit-by-pitch and a run scored in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Reds. He was also caught stealing for the first time this year.
The double was Yelich's first extra-base hit in six games. Since the All-Star break, the outfielder has hit safely in 13 of 14 games, going 20-for-56 (.357). He struggled at the plate early in the year, but he's up to a .266/.368/.397 slash line with eight home runs, 35 RBI, 70 runs scored and 16 stolen bases through 102 contests.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Registers 16th steal
Yelich went 1-for-3 with a pair of walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 5-1 win over the Reds.
Yelich has recorded three steals in his last six games, and he's up to 16 thefts without getting caught this year. Across his last 14 contests, he's batting .339 (19-for-56) with six extra-base hits and a 13:18 BB:K. The 30-year-old outfielder remains a fixture atop the Brewers' lineup, and he's up to a .261/.363/.391 slash line with eight home runs, 35 RBI and 69 runs scored through 444 plate appearances....

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Ejected Thursday
Yelich was ejected from Thursday's game against the Pirates for arguing balls and strikes, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Yelich went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts to begin Thursday's matchup but was tossed in the top of the seventh inning after being called out on strikes on a pitch that appeared to be outside the zone. Assuming Thursday's ejection doesn't result in further discipline, the 30-year-old should be available for Friday's series opener against the Reds.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Swipes 15th base
Yelich went 1-for-3 with two walks, three runs scored and a stolen base in an 8-7 loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.
Yelich had another good night from the leadoff spot, scoring all three times he reached base. He also swiped second base off Pirates starter Tyler Beede for his 15th stolen base of the season. Yelich has been red hot as of late and extended his hitting streak to 12 games with the performance. The 30-year-old left fielder is slashing .357/.471/.524 over the last 15 days.... See More ...

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Notches 14th theft
Yelich went 2-for-5 with a double, a walk, a run and a stolen base in Saturday's 9-4 victory against the Red Sox.
Yelich extended his hitting streak to nine games, and he has tallied multiple hits in four of those contests. The left fielder also swiped his 14th bag of the campaign, though it was just his second in July. Yelich's ability to steal bases is his primary fantasy appeal in 2022 -- he has only eight homers and a modest .259/.360/.396 slash line on the season.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Hitting streak reaches six games
Yelich went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk and an RBI in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the Twins.
The 2018 National League MVP has picked up hits in each of his last six starts, good for his third-longest streak of the season. Unfortunately, Yelich is also striking out at an elevated 34.5 percent clip during that span, and none of his four extra-base hits (three doubles, one triple) were home runs. Though Yelich hasn't been a total disaster for fantasy purposes this season due largely to his 13 stolen bases, he's far off from reaching the immense power production and exceptional batting averages that made him a first-round value during his first two seasons in Milwaukee....

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Good to go Friday
Yelich (back) is starting in left field and batting leadoff Friday against San Francisco, Sophia Minnaert of Bally Sports Wisconsin reports.
The 30-year-old has been held out since being scratched from Tuesday's lineup with mid-back tightness, but he's been cleared to return to action Friday versus the Giants. It's an encouraging sign that Yelich is back playing the field rather than being limited to DH duties.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: On base thrice in return
Yelich (back) went 1-for-3 with two walks and a run scored in Friday's 8-5 loss to the Giants.
Yelich sat out three straight games with the back issue before returning with an effective performance Friday. He's still searching for his first multi-hit game in July after finishing June with three such efforts. The outfielder owns a .251/.349/.382 slash line with eight home runs, 31 RBI, 58 runs scored and 13 stolen bases as the Brewers' main leadoff hitter.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Still not starting
Yelich (back) isn't starting Thursday's game against the Giants.
Yelich was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against Minnesota due to mid-back tightness and will be excluded from the starting nine for a third consecutive game Thursday. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available off the bench, but Andrew McCutchen will start in left field while Pedro Severino serves as the designated hitter.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Back improving, but out Wednesday
Yelich has shown improvement in his recovery from mid-back tightness, but he'll be out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Yelich was scratched from the lineup ahead of Tuesday's 6-3 win in the series opener after the back issue cropped up, allowing Jonathan Davis to pick up a start in the outfield. Though Yelich was troubled by back problems during the 2021 season, the Brewers don't seem to believe his latest recurrence of the injury is as worrisome. McCalvy suggests Yelich has a chance to rejoin the starting nine for Thursday's series opener in San Francisco, but Friday may be the more realistic target for the 30-year-old's return to the lineup....

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Scratched with back issue
Yelich was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to mid back tightness, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Yelich has a history of back issues, so his removal from the lineup raises an eyebrow. However, until more information is released, it's possible the Brewers are simply taking the cautious route. Jonathan Davis will replace Yelich in the outfield, and Kolten Wong will take his place atop the batting order.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Takes seat Sunday
Yelich is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.
He'll head to the bench for the first time since June 4, ending a stretch of 31 consecutive starts. The day out of the lineup plus Monday's team off day should allow Yelich to get a mental reset after he went 2-for-18 with a double, four walks, two runs, an RBI and a stolen base over the Brewers' past five contests. Keston Hiura will replace Yelich in left field in Sunday's series finale.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Swipes 12th bag
Yelich went 2-for-5 with a run scored and a stolen base in a 5-3 win Tuesday in Tampa Bay.
Yelich singled, stole second and scored in Milwaukee's four-run sixth inning. He served as the designated hitter for the second straight game and sixth time in his last 13 contests. Since moving to the leadoff spot in the order, Yelich has performed much better, slashing .312/.398/.416 over his last 88 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Two runs scored in win
Yelich went 1-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.
Yelich knocked in Jace Peterson on a groundout and came around to score twice thanks to a Rowdy Tellez home run and an Andrew McCutchen single. The hit in Sunday's game extended Yelich's hit streak to six games. The outfielder has raised his batting average from .235 to .245 during that span.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: On base four times in loss
Yelich went 2-for-3 with two RBI, two walks and a stolen base in Friday's 9-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
Yelich's two hits were both singles, including one that knocked in a run in the ninth inning. He also had an RBI on a fielder's choice in the fifth in a productive contest. The outfielder has looked more like himself in June, batting .324 (22-for-68) across his last 17 contests. For the season, he's slashing .245/.336/.381 with seven home runs, 11 stolen bases, 26 RBI, 44 runs scored, 11 doubles and two triples through 304 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Scores twice in win
Yelich went 2-for-5 with two runs scored in Saturday's win over Cincinnati.
Both of Yelich's runs came early in the game, one on a Rowdy Tellez double in the first and again on a Willy Adames homer in the third. Yelich has been hot in June, picking up at least one hit in eight of his last 11 games, including five multi-hit games. The outfielder raised his batting average to .242 after Saturday's two-hit performance.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Smacks homer Thursday
Yelich went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and three strikeouts in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Mets.
Yelich got the Brewers on the board with a solo shot in the fourth inning, which sparked a four-run rally. The outfielder continues to succeed from the leadoff spot, as he's gone 14-for-39 (.359) with two homers, two RBI and eight runs scored during a nine-game hitting streak. He's lifted his season line to a .242/.325/.386 triple-slash with seven long balls, 23 RBI, 39 runs scored and nine stolen bases across 62 contests.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Christian Yelich: Dialed in as leadoff man
Yelich will start in left field and bat leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Mets.
Since Kolten Wong suffered a calf strain exactly one week ago that ultimately resulted in him landing on the injured list, Yelich has handled table-setting duties in each of the Brewers' subsequent six games. The Brewers could consider keeping Yelich atop the lineup even after Wong returns, given how well the 2018 National League MVP has responded to the assignment thus far. He'll carry a six-game hitting streak into Tuesday, with Yelich having gone 11-for-26 with a home run, two stolen bases and a 1:4 BB:K over that stretch.... See More ... See Less
