Analysis: Yelich, who also spent a two-week stint on the disabled list last season with a similar back injury, is batting only .200 with 13 strikeouts in 11 games. His back has bothered him much of this season, and a diagnosis has proved elusive.

Ichiro Suzuki replaced Yelich in left and was batting second for Tuesday night's game.
Analysis: Yelich, a Gold Glove winner last year, has been getting treatment recently for his back and is listed as day to day. Yelich made a diving catch in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Braves. But manager Mike Redmond says the injury is "just something that's just kind of been lingering for a day or so."

The Marlins have a club option for an eighth year with the 2010 first-round draft pick. They have now locked up two-thirds of their outfield through 2021. Giancarlo Stanton signed a 13-year deal worth $325 million in November.
Analysis: The 23-year-old Yelich hit .284 last year in his first full major league season. He had nine homers and 54 RBIs and also won a Gold Glove. He is the latest homegrown product Miami has secured for the long term.

A left-handed hitter, Yelich is part of an outfield the Marlins consider the best in the majors, with $325 million slugger Giancarlo Stanton in right field and Marcell Ozuna in center.
