The three-hit afternoon Sunday got his average up above .300 again, leaving his line at .305/.371/.467 through Sunday's games. Now seemingly settled in, the 26-year-old is showing why the Brewers paid a high price to acquire him this winter, and he should only continue to get better as the year goes along.
May 27 - 5:28 PM

Christian Yelich went 3-for-5 with an RBI triple, a two-run double and three runs scored in Saturday's 17-6 romp over the Mets.

Yelich was one of three Brewers batters (joining Lorenzo Cain and Jesus Aguilar) to finish with three knocks. He raced around for an RBI triple in the fourth inning and added a two-run double in the fifth, putting him on Cycle Watch for the back half of the game. While he already had the most difficult leg of the cycle -- the triple -- under his belt relatively early, the former Marlins outfielder came up short of the fun statistical when he failed to find himself a home run by the end of the contest. He's played solid (if unspectacular) baseball this season, slashing .296/.365/.463 with five home runs and 23 RBI in 162 at-bats.

Through Saturday, the 26-year-old is hitting .299/.362/.470 with five homers, 19 RBI, 22 runs scored and three steals.
May 19 - 11:20 PM

May 16 - 7:45 PM

Christian Yelich came off the bench and went 2-for-2 with a stolen base, an RBI, and a run scored Monday night against the Diamondbacks.

Yelich fell into a bit of a slump toward the end of April, but he's been terrific in May and is batting .299/.366/.436 with three home runs, 15 RBI, three stolen bases, and 18 runs scored through his first 30 games in a Brewers uniform.

May 14 - 6:33 PM

Christian Yelich went 2-for-5 with a two-run single in a win over the Rockies on Sunday.

Batting leadoff with Lorenzo Cain getting a day off, Yelich stepped in and delivered a two-RBI single in the second inning before adding a double later in the game. The 26-year-old got off to a sluggish start to his Brewers career, batting .214/.308/.375 in April, but after Sunday's game he's now hitting .311 (14-for-45) in May. The dual threat should finish the year with strong all-around numbers in his first year in Milwaukee.

Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

Yelich collected an RBI single in the seventh inning, snapping a 1-1 tie in the process.

An oblique injury suffered at the beginning of the season has him a little behind the eight-ball in terms of his exposure this year.
