Christian Yelich belted a solo home run for his team's only run in a loss to the Phillies on Wednesday.

His blast off starter Aaron Nola was his only hit of the game, and one of only four knocks the Marlins totaled on the night. The 25-year-old is having a solid campaign but he hasn't taken the step forward many observers predicted prior to the season. In fact he is going to have to pick up the pace in a hurry if he wants to match last season's stats. He has a .289 batting average with 17 home runs and 76 RBI in 628 plate appearances.
Sep 13 - 10:12 PM

Christian Yelich went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in Monday’s loss to the Nationals.

His fourth-inning blast was the only offense the Marlins could muster against Max Scherzer. Yelich had a quiet first half on the power front, but he’s slugged eight homers in 42 games since the All-Star break. He had eight homers in 84 games during the first half.
Aug 28 - 10:56 PM

Christian Yelich finished 3-for-5 with a homer and three runs scored versus the Phillies on Thursday.

He's had three three-hit games in his last five starts. Yelich hasn't quite met expectations this year, but he hasn't been bad and there's still time for a late power binge. He's at 15 homers right now.
Aug 24 - 5:30 PM

Christian Yelich had a three-run homer and a fourth RBI on a groundout as the Marlins topped the Phillies 7-4 to complete a doubleheader sweep Tuesday.

Aug 23 - 12:00 AM

Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs in a win over the Rockies on Friday.

He singled twice and scored twice in the contest and is now batting .280/.368/.433 with 13 home runs, 58 RBI and 72 runs scored. He's chipped in 10 stolen bases in 11 attempts to boot. He is not lighting the world on fire yet but he remains one of the more promising young hitters in the game.

Yelich took Reds starter Tim Adleman deep for the three-run blast in the third inning, the outfielder's 12th homer of the year. It was his only hit in four at-bats. The 25-year-old has been the subject of trade rumors in recent weeks, but it sounds as though he'll be staying put in Miami for at least the near future. Yelich is hitting .287/.365.441 with those 12 homers, 55 RBI, 68 runs scored and nine steals on the year.
Jul 29 - 10:02 PM

Christian Yelich went 3-for-4 with a homer and four RBI as the Marlins fell to the Rangers on Tuesday.

Yelich was responsible for all of the Marlins' offense in this one. He got the Fish on the board with an RBI double in the first inning then tagged Cole Hamels for a three-run blast in the fifth. With the three-hit night, the dynamic outfielder is slashing .284/.361/.421 with 10 homers and 51 RBI.
Jul 25 - 11:10 PM

Christian Yelich went 1-for-3 with a single, a walk, and two RBI in Friday’s victory over the Reds.

Yelich plated a run on a ground out in the first inning before collecting an RBI single in the seventh. This was his first multi-RBI game since July 4. The 25-year-old has picked things up on the batting average front over the past two months, but he hasn’t shown the same power we saw last year.
Jul 22 - 12:20 AM

Christian Yelich enjoyed a three-hit game Saturday against the Dodgers.

With rumors about Yelich being a potential trade target for teams, the 25-year-old just continues to hit, registering his fifth multi-hit game in his last six contests. That's raised his overall line to .285/.362/.408 through 86 games. The Phillies are at least one team known to be interested, but it's still very much unclear whether the Marlins will part with Yelich prior to this month's trade deadline.
