Before Christian Yelich was an MVP, he was a star on the rise with the Miami Marlins.

Yelich was a late 2010 First Round Pick in 2010, and the Californian made his first appearance in the Majors three years later.  Playing at Leftfield, Yelich became a starter with the Marlins in 2014, winning a Gold Glove with a 165-Hit, .2984 Batting Average.  Yelich had another season in 2015, and in 2016, he increased his power stats to 21 Home Runs, captured a Silver Slugger while still flirting with a .300 BA (.298). 

Yelich had his second straight 170 Hit year in 2017, and he secured another year where he belted over 18 Home Runs, 80 RBIs, and batted over .280.  He was a star on the rise, but as what was typical with the Marlins, he was traded away, his case being Milwaukee, where he would win the MVP.

With the Marlins, Yelich had 719 Hits with a .290 Batting Average.
