Brewers acquire OF Christian Yelich from Miami

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Brewers have acquired Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich in a trade with the Miami Marlins. 

In exchange for Yelich, the Brewers have traded Lewis Brinson, Monte Harrison, Isan Diaz, and Jordan Yamamoto. 

Over roughly four and a half seasons, Yelich has been a 290 hitter with 59 homers and just shy of 300 RBI. He has one Golden Glove and a Silver Slugger award in his trophy case as well. 

There were multiple reports this winter that Yelich was unhappy with moves that new Marlins ownership had made.
