Marlins | Christian Yelich hot

Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich went 5-for-6 with two triples and a home run with Double-A Jacksonville Tuesday, May 7. "Yelly, he's turning it up, he definitely is," said INF Derek Dietrich, who watched Yelich through Tuesday go 13 for his last 26 (.500) with two doubles, four triples and two homers. "He's a great hitter, one of the purest hitters I've ever seen and I'm sure it won't be long before we're seeing him in this uniform, too."

Fantasy Tip: Yelich is perhaps the team's most exciting and top-rated position player prospect in their minor league system next to Jake Marisnick. Marisnick might be closer to a call-up, though, even though both are playing at Class AA. Miami is clearly in a rebuilding process and can afford to give Yelich some major league experience later this year if he continues to impress in the minors. Keeper leaguers need to be aware of this kid.
