Christian Yelich extends hit streak to 14 games after going 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Mariners.
The 22-year old is off to a solid start in his sophomore season as he is hitting .333 with a .407 OBP from the leadoff spot for the Marlins with 15 runs scored (tied for 2nd most in the NL), five RBI, and three steals. Yelich still has some room for growth too if manager Mike Redmond would give the kid the green light more on the base paths as he is 13-for-13 in stolen base attempts since coming up last season yet has only had three chances in 17 games this season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Phillies recalled Cody Asche from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
The Phillies seem ready to commit to Asche as their new starting left fielder which certainly gums up the outfield configuration for veterans like Ben Revere, Grady Sizemore and Jeff Francoeur. It also displaces Darin Ruf. While they may be happy with the defensive work he did down in the minors, Asche's bat never really heated up, so the team is still going to have some serious offensive woes. This plan may have looked good on paper, but it should be re-visited in a couple of weeks to see how things are panning out. Analysis: Howard Bender
