Marlins 'intend to hold onto' Christian Yelich

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the belief is that the Miami Marlins will retain, not trade, outfielder Christian Yelich.

What It Means:

Miami has already unloaded outfielders Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna. But, by shedding their financial obligations, the Marlins believe that they've opened up enough space to hold the 26-year-old Yelich. After all, he's set to make just $7 million and $9.25 million over the next two seasons.

Over 156 games, Yelich hit .282 with 18 home runs, 81 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 2017.
