  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Two hits including homer in win

    Yelich went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Diamondbacks.

    Yelich took Tommy Henry deep for a solo shot in the bottom of the second frame before notching a single and coming around to score in the ninth. The homer was his 14th of the campaign and second in the last three games. After going 1-for-26 in his previous eight contests, Yelich has now produced five hits over his last 19 at-bats, going deep twice while compiling three RBI, four runs and a stolen base over the last five games. On the season, the outfielder is batting .254 with 14 home runs, 57 RBI, 99 runs and 18 stolen bases over 152 games.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Swipes 18th base

    Yelich went 0-for-3 with three walks, a stolen base and an RBI in a 4-3 extra-innings loss Sunday against Miami.

    Yelich walked and stole a base in the first inning and drove in a run with a groundout in the eighth. It was his 18th stolen base in 20 attempts this year and just his second since Aug. 6. The 30-year-old has struggled over the last five weeks and has a .192/.323/.308 slash line with two homers in his last 29 appearances.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Hits solo homer

    Yelich went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Miami.

    Yelich's solo shot came in the fourth inning. It was his 13th homer of the season and his first since Sept. 6. Since batting .291 in June, the veteran outfielder's monthly batting average has steadily declined, as he slashed .209/.308/.308 last month. In his last six games, Yelich is 2-for-24 and has seen his season average drop from .259 to .251. Fantasy managers would surely like to see him finish strong at the end of the season to instill confidence for next season's fantasy slate, but he has been very inconsistent down the stretch.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Sits amid offensive dry spell

    Yelich is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Even while Milwaukee is fighting for its playoff life, manager Craig Counsell will make the tough decision to give Yelich a break Wednesday after he's fallen into a 1-for-26 rut at the plate while striking out nine times in the past seven games. A matchup with southpaw Jose Quintana was unlikely to bring about a breakthrough for the lefty-hitting Yelich, who will cede his spot in left field to Andrew McCutchen.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Reaches base three times

    Yelich was 0-for-11 in his previous three games after collecting 12 hits and hitting .364 over an eight-game span. He reached base three times Friday and swiped his 17th bag of the season. The veteran outfielder is now slashing .259/.360/.387 with 41 extra-base hits and 94 runs scored this year.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Cleared to start Monday

    Yelich (neck) will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's game in Colorado.

    Yelich's return from a three-game absence due to neck soreness is a major boon for fantasy managers as the Brewers begin a three-game set at MLB's most hitter-friendly venue. Before the neck issue surfaced, Yelich had been in the midst of one of his most productive stretches of the season. Over his final 15 games in August, Yelich slashed .328/.400/.500 with three home runs, 12 runs and 10 RBI.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Remains out Sunday

    Per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, Yelich took swings earlier Sunday and is showing improvement as he works through a sore neck, but he'll remain on the bench for a third straight game in any event. Esteury Ruiz will pick up another start in left field in place of Yelich, who didn't rule out a return to the lineup for Monday's series opener in Colorado.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Likely to avoid IL

    Yelich is day-to-day with neck soreness after leaving Thursday's game but is not expected to be placed on the injured list, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

    Manager Craig Counsell stated that Yelich irritated his neck on a swing, which caused him to exit Thursday's game against the Diamondbacks in the fourth inning. The skipper noted that Yelich could miss a "couple of days" but there wasn't worry beyond that. The veteran outfielder has also battled back injuries throughout his career, though it's unclear if the issues are related.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Homers from leadoff spot

    Yelich went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in a 9-7 win over the Cubs on Sunday.

    Yelich hasn't showed much power this season and is slugging a mere .396 in 455 at-bats. The home run gives him 11 on the year, which is a far cry from his 2018 and 2019 seasons, when he hit 36 and 44, respectively. Yelich's main category contribution this year has been his ability to tally runs from the top of the Brewers lineup. He has 83 runs this season and could flirt with his fourth 100-run season by season's end.

    Yelich went 4-for-5 with a three-run home run and two total runs scored in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Cubs.

    Yelich launched a three-run shot in the seventh inning that scored Kolten Wong and Jace Peterson, then reached home again on a Willy Adames homer in the eighth. It was Yelich's 10th home run of the season and his second this month. The outfielder has gone 15-for-his-last-42, taking his batting average from .250 to .260 during that span.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Batting third Monday

    Yelich will start in left field and hit third Monday against the Dodgers.

    Yelich had previously batted leadoff in the last 58 games in which he started, but manager Craig Counsell will switch things up and put Yelich back in the lineup spot he opened the season in. The 2018 National League MVP had a rough go of it earlier in August, but he's gotten back on track a bit, hitting .286 (6-for-21) and posting an .804 OPS over his last six games.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Yelich is not in Sunday's lineup against the Cubs.

    Yelich will get a day off after making a key error that cost the Brewers the chance to close out a victory against the Cubs on Saturday. More positively, he is riding a five-game hitting streak during which he's hit .286 with a homer, three RBI and six runs scored. Keston Hiura will enter the lineup and hit sixth while Andrew McCutchen will take over in left field.

  • Brewers' Christian Yelich: Snaps homerless drought

    Yelich went 1-for-4 with a home run, two runs and a walk in Tuesday's victory over the Dodgers.

    Yelich had not left the yard since July 2 and had not homered in Milwaukee since May 5, but he snapped both streaks with a 451-foot no-doubter in the fifth inning of Tuesday's contest. The homer was Yelich's only hit in 29 at-bats over his last eight games, but it could provide the spark he needs to get back on track.
