Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich will bat second between SS Dee Gordon and OF Giancarlo Stanton, according to manager Mike Redmond. Redmond noted he will try a few lineups in spring training, though, and he wants to see Yelich batting third and Stanton fourth.
Fantasy Tip: Expect Yelich to come off the board in the early-middle rounds on draft day, as he is capable of contributing across all five categories. However, his true value lies in his speed and likely high run total with the power and run production more of a bonus. Entering his second full season, look for Yelich's production trajectory to continue heading straight up.
