He's really made strides this year with power before being injured. Hasn't quite played as well since coming back, but the upside is there.

He's probably worth a flier, but I would have tempered expectations. I don't think he'll do much in that lineup as a rookie and in that park.
You're television incarnate, Diana: Indifferent to suffering; insensitive to joy. All of life is reduced to the common rubble of banality. War, murder, death are all the same to you as bottles of beer. And the daily business of life is a corrupt comedy. You even shatter the sensations of time and space into split seconds and instant replays. You're madness, Diana. Virulent madness. And everything you touch dies with you. But not me. Not as long as I can feel pleasure, and pain... and love.

Just be aware that this guy is not a plug-n-play just yet-- still can't hit lefties.

If you have the roster versatility, then he should provide some solid stats if you can handle platooning him.

Can't remember where, but I remember seeing him ranked on a recent prospects list above Taveras.

Not everyone plays in 8 team mixed snake draft leagues.

I play in an 11 team nl only auction league and yelich has plenty of value compared to some of the crap some teams are forced to have active each week. No he won't put up huge numbers but no one here was expecting that. If he shows some signs he could also become a keeper.

I don't expect much. A couple of homers, few steals, .260ish batting average, lots of strike outs. I definitely won't ever be starting him against a lefty that's for sure. I just picked him up to use as trade bait before the deadline in my keeper league.

Taveras all day over this dude. Not close in my opinion.

I've heard him compared to Shawn Green with less power.  Tall lefty with sweet swing.  Right now, he'll likely be a doubles hitter with 12-15 HR power at the MLB level.  Could be a 25 HR hitter in his prime, with elite BA and OBP.
