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
Devin Hester (toe) has been cleared to return from injury in Week 13.
Hester has been on short-term IR all year with the toe injury and has finally been cleared to return. Considering the offensive struggles for the Falcons, he may be used as more than just a return man. There's been little help opposite Julio Jones so perhaps Hester will get a crack at some extra snaps. He certainly couldn't do worse than what the team has there right now. Of course, Matt Ryan still has to wake up as well. Analysis: Howard Bender
