Marlins LF Christian Yelich collects three hits in rout of Reds
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/11/15) Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich got in on the scoring frenzy, as he went 3 for 4 with two RBI and two runs scored in the 14-3 thrashing of the Reds on Saturday.
Yelich had been held hitless in nine at-bats over his last three games, but he has now reached base safely via a hit or a walk in 14 straight games.
Marlins' Christian Yelich extends hit streak to nine games Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/7/15) Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich extended his current hitting streak to nine games with a 3-for-4 effort on Tuesday. Yelich had an RBI single in the third inning, and then drove in another run with a double in the seventh, though the Marlins would end up losing 4-3 to the Red Sox.
Yelich is batting a robust .533 (16 for 30) with four doubles and three RBI over the nine-game streak.
Marlins LF Christian Yelich stays hot with homer against Cubs
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich got his team off on the right foot Friday against the Cubs. He didn't do much else - though neither did most hitters in a 2-1 Miami win.
Yelich slammed his fifth home run in the first inning to remain on a roll. It gave him 10 hits in his last 15 at-bats before he went hitless in his last three plate appearances. He now owns a respectable slash line of .253/.331/.364.
Marlins LF Christian Yelich batting .643 over last five games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/3/15) Marlins left fielder Christian Yelich extended his hitting streak to a modest five games Thursday against the Giants. He went 1 for 2 with a double, two runs, two walks, one strikeout and one stolen base.
Yelich's hit streak started June 27 with a four-hit outing against the Dodgers. He is batting .643 (9 for 14) with three doubles, six walks, four runs, two strikeouts and two stolen bases in that span.
Yelich has been on a good run offensively since early June. He is batting .329 with a .507 slugging percentage and .937 OPS in his last 21 games. His batting average has climbed from .216 to .253 in that span.
|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.
