Brewers' Christian Yelich: Two hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-5 with a double and two strikeouts Wednesday in a Game 1 loss against the Dodgers.

He doubled off lefty Julio Urias, which is an encouraging sign heading into Game 2 against southpaw Clayton Kershaw. Yelich had a 180 wRC+ against same-handed pitching during the regular season.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Reaches three times in finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-2 with a run and two walks in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Yelich really struggled to hit for average during the regular season, but he still found himself on base frequently, posting a .356 OBP -- a mark boosted by the 16 free passes he was issued over the final 12 games. He hit out of the two spot in all 12 of those games and figures to remain there when the Brewers begin postseason play Wednesday.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Smashes 12th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run during a 3-0 win over the Cardinals in the first game of Friday's doubleheader.

He drew another free pass in the nightcap but otherwise went 0-for-2. Yelich's .259 BABIP and 31.5 percent strikeout rate are both far worse than what he posted in his first two years with the Brewers, leading to a .205/.349/.436 slash line, but he's maintained a solid power stroke with 12 homers and 22 RBI through 56 games.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Sparks comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-5 win over the Royals.

Yelich hit a leadoff homer to start the fourth inning, and the Brewers would hang six runs on Royals starter Danny Duffy by the end of the inning. The long ball was Yelich's 11th of the year. He's added 35 runs scored, 21 RBI and four stolen bases in 48 games.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Three hits in blowout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and three total runs in Tuesday's 18-3 drubbing of the Cardinals.

Yelich recorded more than two hits for the first time in a game this season. The 2018 MVP has regressed further of late, hitting .185 over his past seven games with 13 strikeouts. He'll have the opportunity to stay hot in Wednesday's doubleheader beginning with a matinee matchup against Adam Wainwright, who Yelich is 5-for-12 against lifetime.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Posts second XBH of September
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-5 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI in Wednesday's 19-0 win over the Tigers.

On an afternoon in which the Brewers scored their most runs in more than a decade and established a franchise record with 13 extra-base hits, Yelich's box-score line was disappointing. That's been a familiar refrain this season for the 2018 NL MVP, who is barely batting above the Mendoza Line (.213 average). On a more positive note, Yelich has shown some signs of busting out of his season-long slump over the past two weeks, as he's slashed .278/.422/.500 over his past 10 games.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Swipes pair of bases
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 0-for-1 with three runs scored, two stolen bases and four walks in Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Tigers.

Despite not recording a hit, Yelich was able to make an impact in Wednesday's contest. The two steals doubled his total to four stolen bases in 34 games this year. He's added nine homers, 17 RBI, 26 runs scored and a .205/.340/.484 slash line across 147 plate appearances. Yelich has struggled with a career-high 29.3 percent strikeout rate and a career-low .229 BABIP this season. All in all, he's been one part unlucky and another part too hasty at the plate in 2020.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Smacks ninth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Tigers.

Yelich accounted for the Brewers' only run of the game when he took Daniel Norris deep in the sixth inning. It was his ninth home run of the season, and second in his last four starts. His overall line remains underwhelming however, as he is hitting just .207/.324/.488 across 142 plate appearances this season.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Launches eighth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's victory versus Pittsburgh.

Yelich was rested Friday after collecting only two hits in his previous six games, and he responded with a homer and a double in his return to the lineup. The multi-hit game pushed Yelich's average back over the Mendoza Line to .202, though that remains a far cry from the .329 average he posted last season. The slugger has added eight homers and 16 RBI through 129 plate appearances on the campaign.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Pirates.

Yelich went hitless in Thursday's doubleheader and is just 1-for-14 in his career against Pirates starter Derek Holland, so manager Craig Counsell decided to give him a day off Friday. Mark Mathias will get the start in left field in Yelich's place.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Records second steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and a stolen base in Monday's victory over the Reds.

Yelich's batting average on the season is still below the Mendoza Line, but that's still mainly a product of his extremely slow start. Over his last 20 games Yelich reached base at a .407 clip and also added 11 extra-base hits, 12 RBI, 17 runs and two steals.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Single, homer in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Wednesday's win over the Twins.

While Yelich still sits with just one stolen base, there are no lingering questions about his bat after his 1-for-27 start. He is 15-for-51 (.294 average) with five homers and 13 walks in his last 15 games, good for an OPS well north of 1.000 during that span.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Slugs game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Friday's 4-3 win over the Cubs.

With the Brewers down 3-1 in the sixth and two runners aboard, Yelich actually got a pitch to hit from Alec Mills and made no mistake on it, launching it over the fence for his fifth long ball of 2020. The 28-year-old is still only hitting .172 on the year due to a slow start, but he's looked more like himself lately -- over his last nine games Yelich is slashing .267/.405/.767 with four homers and nine RBI.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Swipes first bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 0-for-3 with a hit-by-pitch and a stolen base in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

Yelich's modest four-game hitting streak was snapped in the loss, but the slugger did swipe his first bag of the season after being plunked in the first inning. Yelich notched double-digit steals in six of his first seven MLB campaigns -- including a career-high 30 thefts last season -- but he'll have a hard time reaching that mark in 2020 given the abbreviated schedule.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Heating up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-3 with two walks, a triple, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Reds.

After getting off to a 1-for-27 start, Yelich has gone 6-for-19 with eight walks and five extra-base hits in his last six games, including three home runs. One of those was the freebie inside-the-parker in Chicago, but regardless, Yelich is clearly feeling more comfortable at the plate than he was early on.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Connects for third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-3 loss to the Reds.

After a very slow start to the 2020 season, Yelich has now homered in back-to-back games and has reached base 10 times in his last four games. An NL MVP finalist last year after being named NL MVP in 2018, Yelich has not had his timing down early on, and he's not alone with the league-wide average hovering barely above .230.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Reaches base five times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 1-for-2 with a home run, three runs scored and four walks in Thursday's win over the White Sox.

Yelich is enduring a tough start to the season, but he managed to hit an inside-the-park home run in this one -- perhaps that oddity will boost his confidence moving forward. The 2018 NL MVP seems to be turning things around though, going 3-for-9 with four runs scored and a 6:5 BB:K over his last three games.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the White Sox.

Yelich has been in a massive slump to begin the season as he's gone just 3-for-34 with three extra-base hits, three RBI and 16 strikeouts. He'll be on the bench for the first time this season in hopes that a day off might help to right the ship. Mark Mathias will make his first major-league start in left field, batting seventh.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: Slump lingers on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 0-for-3 with a walk and three strikeouts Tuesday in the Brewers' 3-2 loss to the White Sox.

The Brewers were hopeful that Yelich's struggles at the plate in summer camp would be resolved once Opening Day arrived, but the outfielder remains stuck in the worst slump of his eight-year career. While Yelich's .118 BABIP hasn't helped him any, a 43.2 percent strikeout rate -- well above his 20.8 percent career rate -- is the primary culprit behind his sickly .088/.162/.206 slash line. In an abbreviated 60-game season, Yelich's fantasy managers are surely feeling the sting of their top draft pick's lowly batting average and lack of counting stats (one home run, two runs, three RBI and no stolen bases) through his eight games.

Brewers' Christian Yelich: First multi-hit game this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yelich went 2-for-4 with a double, a run and a walk in Monday's loss to the Pirates.

It's been an unexpectedly slow start for Yelich, but he showed signs of getting on track Monday, reaching base three times and recording his first multi-hit game of the season. After hitting second in the Brewers' first three games of the season, Yelich slotted into the No. 3 spot in the order three times over the club's last four games.
