The 23-year old left fielder is having an outstanding July. He is hitting .321 with an on-base percentage of .441 in 14 games. With a $49 million dollar contract that runs through 2022, Yelich is part of the young core of Marlins looking for better days in the future. Yellich had a dreadful series against the D’backs in May with three hits and five strikeouts in 16 at-bats. That’s a stark contrast from 2014 when he ripped 12 hits in 30 at-bats vs Arizona.
