Yelich will undergo COVID testing Wednesday and is expected to return from the COVID-19 injured list Thursday, assuming he clears protocols, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yelich is set to rejoin the team following the 10-day minimum even after experiencing minor COVID-19 symptoms. McCalvy notes the Brewers may elect to give their slugger a few extra days to get back in the swing of things, potentially pushing his return to the field back until the weekend. Tyrone Taylor will continue to see opportunities in left field until Yelich is cleared.

Yelich went 1-for-4 with a two-run double, a walk and a run scored in Friday's 7-4 win over Pittsburgh.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yelich drilled a two-run double and came around to score during a five-run seventh inning. He has four extra-base hits and 10 walks in nine games this month. The 29-year-old outfielder is slashing .235/.395/.378 through 124 plate appearances this season.

Yelich (back) has hit a plateau in his recovery and will undergo an MRI, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yelich has been on the injured list since April 17 due to back soreness, but manager Craig Counsell revealed that the 29-year-old's recovery has slowed down in recent days. As a result, Yelich has been sent back to Milwaukee to undergo further tests. A better idea of Yelich's status could be revealed once the results of his MRI are known.

Here's how Gene McCaffrey sums up Yelich today in his fantasy baseball rankings and auction values for outfielders:

Christian Yelich MLW  Perhaps the most extraordinary of all the short-season surprises, that a hitter so good was so bad for 58 games. His .205/.356/.430 slash was the product of a far more selective plate approach. I wrote about this late last season, predicting that Yelich would see the error of his ways. He very much did not: in his final 10 games he walked 14 times but hit .148 and slugged .259. Should we really expect him to bounce right back? The passive approach hints at injury, but in any case I want to see Yelich swinging the bat. Until I do he is not a 1st-rounder in my rankings or even a $30 player. $28

Found two actual, glossy, totally fun baseball magazines in the supermarket yesterday -- yay!

I mean, for just plain fun, you really do get your money's worth. For instance, flipping through the pages of Lindy's Baseball Preview, just looking at 2020 Stat Leaders for each team... could you ever have guessed which player led the Brew Crew in both OBP and stolen bases?

Yep. Yelich.

Does communal mean both teams had access? 

Christian Yelich (OF) MIL - Feb. 09

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that while communal video rooms will remain closed in 2021, players will have access to in-game video via iPads in each dugout, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yelich was among the more vocal players about the change last season, and one that was seemingly most affected by the change. His strikeout rate jumped from a consistent 20 percent level for years to 30.8% last season. This change could help him return to former levels.

Pretty good analysis as always Rotoman. I was just expressing that when you watched him live, it was very apparent that he was struggling, something that isn't always apparent unless you do a deep dive on the numbers.  It is a small strike/risk factor that knocks him below the guys ike Soto/Betts, but I would still be comfortable going into the high 30's for him (NL only 4x4).
