|Christian Yelich a batting average risk |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/13/13) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich has gotten off to a promising start to his career, but his solid batting average may not last.
Yelich's stat-line has been propped up by a .372 BABIP, which is likely to decline. On top of that, his 22 percent strikeout rate is another indicator that he's not a .290 hitter just yet. Yelich has shown some promising skills in his brief debut, walking 10.5 percent of the time, so there's certainly value to be had there.
Moving forward the rest of this year, and in keeper leagues, he's unlikely to repeat that perfomance unless he cuts down on his swings and misses.

|Christian Yelich hits solo homer |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(9/2/13) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich recorded three hits Monday during a 4-3 win at Chicago. Yelich hit his third home run of the season in the first inning.
Yelich hit a solo shot with one out in the first as he was the No. 2 hitter for the Marlins on the game. He finished 3 for 4 and is batting .281.
The 21-year-old top prospect has hit in five of his last six games. He's gone 10 for 22 over that stretch with two homers and three runs driven in.
|Christian Yelich having early struggles vs. LHPs |

(8/18/13) Marlins rookie outfielder Christian Yelich entered Sunday's game against the Giants batting .364 against right-handed pitchers and .176 against left-handed hurlers. With the Marlins facing four left-handed starters, including Sunday against Madison Bumgarner, in their next five games, Yelich will be tested in the coming days.
"No different if it's lefty or righty, I'm still trying to look for a pitch to hit," he said, per MLB.com. "I kind of have the same approach against every guy. I try not to make it any more complicated than that. When you do that, I think it takes you out of your game. If you approach it like, 'It's a lefty, I'm going to do something different here,' it doesn't work."
|Christian Yelich keeps on hitting |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/14/13) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich's hitting streak ended at 10 games Sunday, but he has been able to get back on track in two games since.
Yelich went 3 for 4 with a game-winning RBI Tuesday, in a 1-0 win over the Royals in 10 innings. He added a walk as well, while raising his batting average to .299. It had fallen to .282 after his hitless game Sunday.
Yelich has hit safely in 16 of 21 games since his call up from Double-A. He has a .735 OPS in 87 at-bats.
