Yelich heading to minor league disabled list

Top prospect Christian Yelich -- expected to be called up at some point this season -- will be placed on the minor league disabled list Thursday with a small abdominal wall strain. He is expected to miss about two weeks the Marlins say.

Hitting .262 with six home runs and 28 RBIs in 41 games for Jacksonville, Yelich was hurt making a diving catch in the outfield Monday. He played Tuesday, but was lifted from the lineup after complaining of discomfort following three at-bats.
