Marlins | Christian Yelich having good spring

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich has a team-leading four home runs and 12 RBIs while hitting .359 with a 1.251 OPS this spring. He will start the year at Double-A Jacksonville, but he's tempting the organization with his talent. "He's just a natural-born hitter," hitting coach Tino Martinez said. "It doesn't matter if he's facing rookies or guys who've played six or eight years. He knows what he's doing and has a great game plan up there. There's nothing fancy about him. He just hits." He needs to clean up his throwing motion, as he tends to throw across his body frequently.

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is behind Jose Fernandez as the team's No. 2 minor league prospects. Yelich could be a September call-up this season, meaning he probably won't have any worth outside of NL-only leagues in 2013.
