Yelich, Giancarlo Stanton, and Ozuna were the starting outfielders for the team’s defense. Yelich missed some time in late May because to back spasms.
Ozuna filled in for Stanton in the right field after he was put on the disabled list, while Yelich filled in for Ozuna in the center field on the days that backup outfielder Ichiro Suzuki was unavailable.
Yelich was acquired by the Marlins from the Milwaukee Brewers on January 25, 2018, along with Lewis Brinson, Isan Dáz, Monte Harrison, and Jordan Yamamoto.
Yelich batted .285 with 11 home runs, 36 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases in the 2018 MLB All-Star Game.
Yelich, a bench player for the National League, took Matt Kemp’s spot in left field and finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in an 8-6 defeat to the American League in extra innings.
Yelich has six hits overall in the game on August 29, including a cycle against the Cincinnati Reds. Yelich hit the first grand slam of his career on September 2 against the Washington Nationals.
Yelich became the sixth player in MLB history to hit two cycles in the same season and the first person to do so against the same team on September 17, when he hit the cycle for the second time in 19 days, also against the Cincinnati Reds.
