Brewers right fielder, and perennial MVP candidate, Christian Yelich will be staying in Milwaukee through the prime of his career. Yelich has signed a seven-year extension to his current contract worth an eye-popping $189 million. There is no opt-out clause or other provisions that would allow Yelich to find greener pastures elsewhere if his production continues on its sky-high trajectory. Yelich will be a member of the Crew through thick and thin as the team attempts to build a World Series contender around him. The deal is two years longer, and $90 million more than what Ryan Braun inked in 2011, easily the grandest contract in franchise history.
In Cactus League play Saturday, Milwaukee fell to San Francisco, 11-2.
