Yelich followed up his preposterous 2018 season with an even better one in 2019, batting .329 with 44 home runs and 30 steals in just 130 games. His ridiculous 35% HR/FB rate regressed as expected, but only to a still nonsensical 32.8%, best in MLB. The issue with Yelich for 2020 has nothing to do with his talent, but is instead all about the fractured kneecap that prematurely ended his season. He's reportedly on track to be ready by Opening Day, but there's obviously a modicum of risk to factor in.

Christian Yelich will make spring debut Friday

Christian Yelich will make his spring debut Friday against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Coming off signing a major sever-year extension on Thursday, Yelich will make his spring debut on Friday. He will serve as the team's designated hitter and bat third. Yelich (knee) entered spring training with no restrictions and should be ready by Opening Day. He is slashed .329/.429/.671 with 44 homers, 97 RBI, 100 runs and 30 stolen bases across 580 plate appearances in 2019. Yelich is an absolute surefire top-4 overall pick in fantasy drafts.
