Christian Yelich is projected to be a top 40 overall pick this year in drafts and, again, I have no idea why. He had 21 home runs (his previous career high was nine) and he drove in 98 RBIs (his previous career high was 54). He is still a young player and those numbers can be the player he is, but I am not taking a chance on drafting Yelich that early in drafts.
The number that scares me is his stolen bases. 2016 was the first year he didn’t steal double digit bases. If he can become a 20/20 guy then he is worth the draft pick but the home run numbers are an outlier and the drop in stolen bases is concerning. Don’t draft Yelich in the top four or five rounds this year. Instead of drafting Yelich, I would recommend drafting Kyle Seager, Wil Myers and Dee Gordon, who will all provide better numbers with less risk.
