    played yesterday very well

    Hi

    Is it OK to say 'You played yesterday very well' instead of 'You played very well yesterday'?

    Thanks.

    Re: played yesterday very well

    It would be understood but, as Piscean said, it's not natural. I suggest you stick with:

    - You played very well yesterday.
    - Yesterday, you played very well.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'You played yesterday very well'

    The way you have written this it sounds like "yesterday" is a noun representing the name of a person or game.

    You played baseball very well.

    You played very well baseball.
