Brewers potential All-Star #3 - Christian Yelich - OF

Now this may come as a surprise to many, but Christian Yelich's form recently has been outstanding. It would also be great to see the former MVP back in the All-Star game having had a tough few years at the plate.

He is currently batting .271, which would be the best mark since his last All-Star season back in 2019. Everyone in Milwaukee has been rooting for him to get back on track and it is starting to feel like he has found his feet again. What has perhaps snuck under the radar is that his batting average is ninth out of all NL outfielders, something I did not expect to see. That's better than Mookie Betts and Juan Soto.

With just nine home runs it does put him in 13th but an OBP of .367 has him above the likes of Betts, Nick Castellanos and Bryan Reynolds, all who will feel they should be a lock for a spot on the All-Star roster. Well, Yeli is throwing his hat in the ring.

Another factor that comes into play and boosts Yelich's case is his ability when on base. 16 stolen bases has him fifth and then his 49 runs has him fourth, just behind Ronald Acuna Jr., Betts and the sensational rookie Corbin Carroll.

Since the 1st of May, Yeli is one of just four players with a line of .300 AVG, .400 OBP and .500 SLG. To make things better, his last 15 games he is at .333, .433 and .561. Narrow that further to his last seven games and he is batting at a whopping .407, getting on base at .484 and his slugging numbers are at .778. Yes they are his actual stats over the last seven games. Mindblowing.

As we approach the All-Star game, there is still time for players to turn heads and throw their name in the hat for reciving the honor. These are just three of the Brewers players I picked out to make an appearance in Seattle in mid-July. Stay tuned to find out which player gets to represent the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2023 All-Star game.
