Brewers’ Christian Yelich taking patient approach in 2022 season

Brewers left fielder Christian Yelich smiles after hitting a single against the Cardinals during the home opener Thursday at American Family Field.

Patience is a virtue Christian Yelich exhibits not only when in the batter’s box.

Seven games into the 2022 Major League Baseball season, Yelich is off to a strong start at the plate and has the underlying numbers that back up those results.

But the Milwaukee Brewers outfielder is just as slow to rush to any conclusions about positive early-season plate appearances as he would be if they were littered with strikeouts and pop outs.

“Players in April, teams in April, everyone on the outside likes to overreact,” Yelich said before Friday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals at American Family Field. “It’s either you’re gonna win the World Series or you’re the worst team ever. You’re either gonna win the MVP or you suck after April, then there’s five months to go.
