Brewers' Christian Yelich wins 2019 Silver Slugger award

The Milwaukee Brewers' defending National League MVP has received his second consecutive Silver Slugger award for being the best offensive player at his position.

Right fielder Christian Yelich earned the 2019 Silver Slugger despite missing much of the final month of 2019 with a knee injury.

Yelich still led all of Major League Baseball with a 1.100 OPS and a .671 slugging percentage.

He led the NL in both batting average (.329, his second consecutive year winning that title in the NL) and on-base percentage (.429).

Yelich was sixth in all of MLB with 44 home runs. In the NL, he was third in total WAR (Wins Above Replacement) in the NL with 7.1, first in offensive WAR (7.3), third in stolen bases (30) and first in runs created (150).
