Christian Yelich bats leadoff on Sunday

by Brad Richter | Brewers Correspondent | Mon, Mar 5th 2:51pm EST

The Brewers new outfielder Christian Yelich was slotted into the leadoff spot during Sunday's Spring Training game against the Indians. He went 2-for-3 with a double and scored both of the Brewers' runs in the 6-2 loss.

Fantasy Impact:

Yelich has primarily hit second in the order so far this spring but was moved into the leadoff spot on Sunday. He is batting .333 so far this spring in 15 at-bats with four runs scored and an RBI. Whether it is the leadoff spot or the two-hole, the 26-year-old outfielder will hit near the top of a strong Brewers' lineup while taking advantage of a positive park adjustment playing half his games in Milwaukee instead of Miami. Yelich is currently ranked 48th overall by our Expert Consensus Rankings with an ADP of 51.
