Milwaukee Brewers slugger Christian Yelich was back in the lineup Tuesday after missing five starts because of back tightness.

Yelich was hitting third against the visiting Minnesota Twins.

The right fielder entered Tuesday hitting a National League-best .335 with 39 home runs, tied for the most in the majors with the Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout.

Yelich, 27, had a pinch-hitting appearance on Sunday, striking out, but otherwise has not played since Aug. 5.

He missed five full games and six starts from April 29 to May 4 because of back problems.
