So what happened this year with Yelich? What started out as a terrible start has turned into an awful 55 games. This is not a small sample size at this point.
His power numbers are OK. Over a full season he'd hit about 30 home runs. But everything else is off and he's striking out at an alarming rate. Over a full season at this pace he'd strike out about 220 times. He has drawn a lot more walks, so maybe teams are just pitching around him more without Moustakas and Grandal for protection and he's chasing pitches?
In the last 4 games which will determine whether the Brewers make the post-season, he is now 1 for 13 with 7 strikeouts and 4 walks. No RBIs.
For a guy who had historic seasons the last two years, ending even a 60 game season hitting around .200 is concerning.
