Yelich, 28, has been with the Brewers for the last two seasons after being traded by the Miami Marlins. He has one MVP award and two All-Star appearances in those seasons. The star hit .329 last season with 44 home runs and 97 RBIs.
Since joining the Brewers, Yelich has developed into a star. Milwaukee has made the playoffs the last two seasons with Yelich on the roster and will be hoping to do it for a third straight season.
