Marlins OF Christian Yelich down to seventh in Saturday lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) The struggles of Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich since coming off the disabled list on May 8 have forced him to be lowered in the lineup. He is batting seventh Saturday against Baltimore. He had previously batted fifth or sixth.

Yelich, who was out of the lineup Friday, has just three hits in his last 30 at-bats.


Marlins LF Christian Yelich gets a breather on Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) 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.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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

Marlins' Christian Yelich making debut in No. 5 spot Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) 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.

The Marlins are the underdogs (+115) at San Francisco on Friday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2015) Marlins manager Mike Redmond said outfielder Christian Yelich is poised to rejoin the team and play in Friday's game at San Francisco, reports MLB.com.

"He's in transit, so he won't be active [Thursday], but he will be here at some point," Redmond said. "Look for him to be activated [Friday]. He will go right in the lineup."

Yelich has been on the disabled list after suffering a back injury in April. He has not played since April 19.

"It will be good to get Yeli back," Redmond said. "We need him. We need a full squad. The full squad we left spring training with is the team that we need, and hopefully after [Friday] it will be a step closer to that."

MRI on Marlins' Christian Yelich shows bulging disk


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Yelich is on the 15-day disabled list, and the team is confident that, despite the MRI findings, Yelich will be ready to return to the lineup at the end of the 15 days, in early May.

"It should be alright after a few days if I just stay on it and take care of it," Yelich said, per the Miami Herald. "We didn't really know what it was last year, what was causing it. We kind of had an idea. The MRI kind of confirmed what everybody was thinking."

"It's pretty much the same thing, slightly less [pain] this time compared to last year. It's not nearly as bad, but there's still discomfort, not a whole lot of range of motion. It just takes time. This is about day five or six now. It's starting to get a little bit looser, feel a little bit better. I have to go through all the progression stuff that will get me back on the field."
