It may be the worst-kept secret in Milwaukee Brewers contract announcement history, but it is definitely among the most franchise-defining deals in the 50 years of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Officially, outfielder Christian Yelich, the 2018 NL MVP and 2019 MVP finalist who has re-written many of the single-season offensive record books for the Brewers, will be a Brewer well into the new decade after his deal with the team.

The deal is a true marriage for both sides – full commitment bound on both sides.
