Marlins LF Christian Yelich gets a breather on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(4:26 pm ET) Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich is being held out of the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Orioles. No injury is being reported, so it appears to just be a day off.
Yelich had started every game since returning from a stint on the disabled list on May 8, and he's been struggling offensively. In those 12 games, he's batting just .159 (7 for 44) with a home run and a double.
Ichiro Suzuki will make the start in left field and bat seventh in the order.
Marlins rest Mike Morse, Christian Yelich vs. southpaw Alex Wood
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Marlins first baseman Michael Morse and left fielder Christian Yelich were given the day off against left-hander Alex Wood and the Braves on Saturday. Jeff Baker will take over at first base and bat fifth, while Ichiro Suzuki will bat sixth and play left field in Yelich's absence.
Morse has been held without a hit over his last 11 at-bats. He is hitting .214 on the year and is a .143 lifetime hitter against Wood.
Yelich is a lifetime .409 (9 for 22) hitter against the southpaw, but is hitting.160 (4 for 25) since returning from the disabled list.
Miami is favored (-125) at home against Atlanta, per VegasInsider.com.
Marlins OF Christian Yelich hits first home run of season Monday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich picked the perfect time to hit his first home run of the season during Monday's 5-3 loss to the Dodgers.
With the Marlins trailing 2-1 in top of the ninth inning, Yelich hit a two-run home run off Yimi Garcia to give the Marlins a 3-2 lead, but the Marlins ended up losing 5-3.
Yelich finished the game 2 for 4 with two RBI and one run scored. He is now batting .200 on the season. Since returning from the disabled list, Yelich had been 1 for 11 before his two hits in Monday's contest.
Marlins' Christian Yelich making debut in No. 5 spot Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich is batting fifth Sunday for the first time in his career, MLB.com reports.
"I talked with him about it," manager Mike Redmond said. "He’s going to be fine. He needs to play. He needs to get at-bats. He’s been off for a couple of weeks. Hit him a little bit lower, get him going, and we’ll figure out where the best spot for him is going forward."
Redmond also indicated he wanted to keep the combination of Dee Gordon and Martin Prado in place at the top of the lineup. Yelich could settle into the fourth or fifth spot in the lineup and become more of an RBI threat behind Giancarlo Stanton.
"Yeli can hit anywhere. He can hit fourth, too," Redmond said. "I would have no problem hitting him in the cleanup spot, or three."
Yelich has hit .170/.241/.189 in 53 at-bats.
Marlins activate Christian Yelich, DFA Reid Brignac
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/8/15) The Marlins activated outfielder Christian Yelich from the 15-day disabled list Friday, the team announced.
Yelich was placed on the disabled list after he suffered a back injury in April. Yelich will bat leadoff and play left field in Friday's game at San Francisco.
In order to accommodate Yelich on the roster, the Marlins designated infielder Reid Brignac for assignment. Brignac was hitting .077 in 13 at-bats this season.
The Marlins are the underdogs (+115) at San Francisco on Friday.
|2014 Summary: Christian Yelich's gap power and high walk rate gave him the appearance of a strong points league contributor. And with 30 doubles, six triples and a .362 on-base percentage, he didn't disappoint owners in those formats. While Yelich finished with the 22nd-most Fantasy points among outfielders, his ranking in Rotisserie (29th) wasn't far behind. Home run power still isn't a big part of Yelich's game, but he took a step forward as a run producer (94 runs, 54 RBI) and stolen base threat (21 steals in 28 attempts) in his second season.|
Playing time status: Yelich missed a couple of weeks in June with a back strain, but when he returned, he started every game the rest of the way for the Marlins. Especially after batting .317 against lefties, there is no reason to think Yelich will sit against lefties from here on out.
2015 Outlook: Because Yelich is an extreme ground ball hitter, any gains he makes power-wise are likely to be modest. He's probably not done improving as a run producer or base stealer, so owners can count on him to be a top 25 outfielder this season.
