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

He can play all those positions. We talk about ways of getting him in the lineup during the season and that’s how it’s going to be, maybe a day off for (Christian) Yelich, a day off for (Marcell) Ozuna, a day off for (Giancarlo) Stanton at some point maybe. I want to make sure we’re comfortable with him playing all those positions. This is a great time to do it.

“When you start filling out those bench spots you want guys to do and cover as much as you possibly can and I got to feel comfortable (we can) throw those guys out at any position.”
