At least he's 30, so you could say his peak was right when his expected peak was. But, he has fallen off over exactly the same time period. Amazing. At least h'es kept his walks up, so his OBP is a positive, even though is average, power, and much of his steals have disappeared.

Swipes his 14th bag as the Brew Crew again prevails in Fenway. Yelich hasn't gone deep since July 2 but he's slashed .361/.489/.556 in his last nine games.

Three knocks, one over the fence, in the leadoff spot but it wasn't enough to stop the Brew Crew from losing their eighth in a row.

In the last two weeks Yelich is slashing .362/.464/.745. Nice to see.

Christian Yelich (OF) MIL - Apr. 04

Yelich went 0-for-2 with a walk in Sunday's 13-2 loss to the Rangers in Cactus League play.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yelich has walked in three of his 30 plate appearances this spring and has struck out only six times, though he hasn't been especially effective when he's made contact, going 7-for-27 (.259 average) with two doubles and no home runs. He was slotted into five different spots in the Brewers' batting order a season ago, but he most often hit third. He's set to open the 2022 campaign at that spot in the lineup, having hit third in all 10 games he has appeared in during the exhibition season.

From Baseball HQ yesterday:

Players who are riskier than their health score indicates

Nelson Cruz (DH, FA; A Health Score): He's thus far thumbed his nose at the aging curve, with skills improving as he hit his mid-30s. He's spent only 41 days on the IL in the past four seasons, and none since 2019. However, in 2021 he had six different minor injuries (foot x2, neck, wrist, forearm, and knee) that caused him to miss time even though he was able to avoid the IL. He'll also be 42 in 2022, and that's a big health risk in and of itself.

Fernando Tatis, Jr. (SS/OF, SD; C Health Score): During the 2021 season, he partially dislocated his shoulder at least five times, two of which led to IL stints. He decided against off-season surgery, which potentially leaves him vulnerable to more issues going forward. His production is so good that he can still provide excellent value if his IL trips are limited, but there is significant risk that he sustains an injury that he can't easily return from, as each injury potentially destabilizes the joint a bit more.

Alex Bregman (3B, HOU; C Health Score): After the season ended, he revealed that he needed surgery on his right wrist. Had the injury occurred earlier in the season, he would have missed significant time, likely dropping him to an F health score. The wrist should be 100% to start the season, so it's not an ongoing concern, but three IL-worthy injuries in two seasons means the risk is higher.

Christian Yelich (OF, MIL; C Health Score): He's been battling back problems for years, going as far back as 2014. He's had a couple of short IL stays over the years but seemed to manage it well from 2016 to 2019. In 2021, it cost him 33 days on the IL in two different trips. Could the back issue explain his power drop in 2020 and 2021? Sure, but the risk here is that it gets worse over time. You'd expect that he's taking steps to manage the issue, but it's still here, eight years later.

It's not an agreement. It's the Union is willing to agree to management's 11th hour proposal if management agrees to the Union's other proposals. It's part of the grand bargain proposal from the Union. They have not agreed on this subject as a stand alone.

An agreement has been reached to eliminate the shift. Yelich and Navarez are the biggest Brewers victims against the shift. The shift goes more against lefties than righties (you can't really flex the 1B the way you can flex a 3B) so it means a lot of left handed hitters should see upticks in the coming season (assuming there is one).
