Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) is out of the Marlins' starting lineup Monday versus the Braves.

Advice: Yelich singled as a pinch-hitter on Sunday against the Nationals, but he's still not ready to play a full game. The 23-year-old fouled a ball off his ankle last Wednesday and also has a bruised right knee. Derek Dietrich is in left field for Miami on Monday night.

Christian Yelich (knee, ankle) hit a pinch-hit single in the Marlins' loss to the Nationals on Sunday.

Advice: Yelich hadn't appeared in a game for the Fish since re-injuring his right knee and fouling a ball off his ankle last Wednesday. The 23-year-old outfielder should be ready to return to everyday action this week.

Christian Yelich didn't play Thursday because he re-injured his right knee and also fouled a ball off his ankle on Wednesday.

Advice: Yelich just returned from the disabled list on Tuesday after missing the last two weeks with a bruised right knee. It doesn't seem at this point that the Marlins are viewing it as a serious setback, but expect them to be cautious with Yelich over the next few days.

Christian Yelich is out of Thursday's lineup against the Pirates with a bruised knee.

Advice: Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald notes that he's not even taking batting practice, so this situation is worth watching. Derek Dietrich will start in left field while Ichiro Suzuki will play right.

Marlins activated OF Christian Yelich from the 15-day disabled list.

Advice: Yelich ended up missing the minimum 15 days with a right knee contusion and didn't even require a minor league rehab assignment. The 23-year-old is batting .275/.343/.376 with six home runs, 29 RBI, and 14 steals over 92 games this season.

Christian Yelich (knee) is hopeful of being activated from the disabled list on Tuesday, the first day he's eligible.

Advice: It's a surprise, as just a couple days ago Yelich wasn't cleared to run yet. He made nice progress over the weekend, though, and will shag some flies prior to Monday's game in hopes of being activated on Tuesday. The young outfielder has been out with a right knee contusion.
