Christian Yelich rips timely triple Friday

Christian Yelich went 2-for-5 with a triple and a run scored in Friday's loss to the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Yelich's triple came off prized closer Will Smith in the ninth, and he later scored to tie the game and send it to extras. He was a full participant in the All-Star game after sitting out the Home Run Derby, and he appears to be 100 percent as we move into the second half.

Christian Yelich: skipping home run derby with back injury

Christian Yelich (back) will not participate in the Home Run Derby on Monday night due to a lingering back injury.

Fantasy Impact

Initial reports indicated that Yelich was missing Sunday's game for regular rest, but now it appears he may be dealing with a back injury. Yelich is also scheduled to start in Tuesday's All-Star game, and there has been no indication that he won't play then. He is day-to-day for now, but is likely just being cautious in skipping the derby. Matt Chapman will replace Yelich in Monday's home run derby.
