Yepez is the sixth-ranked prospect in the Cardinals system, but he has been killing baseballs in Triple-A. In the minors this season, he has 24 hits in 86 at-bats for 26 RBI, nine home runs, and 15 runs. Yepez is batting .279, with a .323 OBP, and a .974 OPS. In 2021, he hit 27 home runs between Double and Triple-A.
Yepez usually plays first and third base but has seen some play in the outfield as well. With Nolan Arenado and Paul Goldschmidt occupying the corners, he’ll be playing in right field.
The Cardinals are second in the NL Central with a 13-10 record, 2.5 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers.
