PHOENIX — Christian Yelich is giving the Milwaukee Brewers’ outfield a new look. The Brewers could plug him into the No. 2 spot in the lineup, while Yelich has shown the ability to play every outfield position. “They had a good thing going last year and fell just a little short” of the playoffs, Yelich said. “So hopefully we can push over that hump this year and bring some good things to Milwaukee.” Brewers veteran Ryan Braun has been so impressed with
