Yelich currently leads the NL in batting average, slugging percentage, and OPS, as well as OPS+, wOBA, and wRC+, in addition to the fact that he’s in the top 11 in on-base percentage, times on base and home runs.
Since the All-Star Break, Yelich has batted .356 and slugged .724 with 20 home runs, and incredibly has more games reaching base four times (5) than he does reaching base zero times (3).
Also, Yelich became the first player in Major League history to hit for the cycle against the same team (Reds) twice in one season. Yelich also now has hit for more or as many cycles (2) in the last month than 4 different teams (Rays, Blue Jays, Padres (2) Marlins (0)) have in their franchise’s history.
As the regular season wraps up this weekend, it will be interesting to see whether Yelich or his closest competition in Javier Baez wins the award for NL MVP.
