As reported by MLB on FOX reporter & senior writer Ken Rosenthal, Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich and the team are close to an agreement on a new contract, worth more than $200 million, according to The Athletic.

In a move that couldn’t have come a better time for the franchise, they lock up their star player still in his prime for likely the rest of the 2020 decade. Before the deal, Yelich was under team-control for the next three seasons. The deal according to The Athletic is expected to be announced this Friday at the team’s spring training facility down in Maryvale, Arizona

.

Since coming over to the Milwaukee Brewers from the Miami Marlins in January of 2018, Yelich has been one of the best players in the game of baseball. As a member of the Brew Crew, Yelich has been named an NL All-Star twice, as well as taken home two Silver Slugger Awards, two Hank Aaron Awards, and a NL MVP crown. Over the last two seasons, he has led the NL in batting average and ranks near the top with his on-base percentage.
