The Brewers held a March 6 news conference to announce that the 2018 NL MVP had agreed to a nine-year, $215 million contract.

Spring training was halted less than a week later because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Yelich's deal was finalized before the loss of revenue from Major League Baseball's shortened season and labor unrest created at least some uncertainty about the game’s financial future.

He says everybody is in a unique situation this season.
