Christian Yelich (OF) MIL - Mar. 14

Yelich went 2-for-2 with a home run, a double, two RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Angels.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Yelich laced a double to right field in the first inning and smacked a two-run home run in the third before being lifted. He's been so locked in at the plate that the Brewers have had a quick leash with their star outfielder in spring training, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.  "We've taken him out of the games quickly a couple of times," stated manager Craig Counsell. "He squares up two balls every day. You just want to make sure he's feeling good." Yelich is seeing the ball well so far this spring, as he's now 12-for-24 with three homers, five RBI and seven runs scored.

As a Brewer fan who saw over 100 of his games, I concur with FanGraphs. For a guy with a terrific defensive reputation, I was stunned at how average (or even slightly below) he was in the field.

His 35 percent HR/FB wasn't just the best in the majors (400+ PA), it was the best by a considerable marging. The top five:

Yelich 35%

JD Martinez 30%

Max Muncy 29%

Aaron Judge 29%

Joey Gallo 28%

Average of all players with at least 100 PA is 12%.

According to Fangraphs, defense was not a big part of his MVP season.
