Back-to-back? Brewers’ Yelich one of three finalists for NL MVP honor
Yelich was named the league’s MVP last year after batting .326/.402/.598 with 36 home runs and 110 RBI. In 2019, Yelich followed up his MVP season by leading the NL in batting average (.329), on-base percentage (.429) and slugging percentage (.671). The outfielder also mashed 44 homers, stole 30 bases and tallied 97 RBI.
If Yelich can take home the honor, he’d become the first player to win back-to-back NL MVPs since Albert Pujols in 2008-09.
MLB will announce the winner Nov. 14.
