Christian Stephen Yelich (December 5, 1991) is a Major League Baseball left fielder for the Milwaukee Brewers (MLB). He was previously with the Miami Marlins.
In the first round of the 2010 MLB draft, the Marlins picked Yelich. He made his MLB debut in 2013 with the Marlins before being sent to the Brewers in the 2017-18 offseason.
In 2014, Yelich received a Gold Glove Award, the Silver Slugger Award in 2016, 2018, and 2019, and the National League Most Valuable Player Award in 2018.
After the 2019 season, Yelich became the only player in Major League Baseball history to have consecutive seasons hitting .325 or higher with 35 or more homers and 20 or more steals.
On March 6, 2020, Yelich signed a nine-year, $215 million contract extension with the Brewers, more than doubling Ryan Braun’s previous record of $105 million for the richest contract in franchise history. In the shortened 60-game 2020 season, he hit .205/.356/.430 with 12 home runs.
At the start of the 2021 season, Yelich had a lingering back problem that caused him to spend over half of the months of April and May on the injured list.
