5. Christian Yelich
Christian Yelich has been well worth the prospects the Brewers gave up in the offseason. He’s been one of the only consistent players at the plate and has provided stellar defense at multiple positions this season.
Yelich came over from the Miami Marlins and made his first ever All-Star team. He’s got a .288 batting average with a .361 on-base percentage. He’s also already posted a 1.3 Wins Above Replacement.
Yelich has spent the whole season at the top of the order and consistently gets on base. He’s one of the only players Milwaukee can rely upon on a nightly basis. Because of this, there’s been a lot of pressure placed on his shoulders, but he’s responded accordingly. Yelich should continue his push with the Brewers and continue to set the tone after the All-Star break.
