Christian Yelich out for the rest of the season with a fractured knee cap
The Brewers won Tuesday night's game against the Marlins in Miami, 4-3, but they lost much more as reigning National League MVP Christian Yelich suffered a fractured right knee cap that will bench him for the rest of the season.
The injury occurred in the first inning as Yelich fouled a pitch off his knee during his first at-bat. After trying to walk on the leg for a few moments, Yelich was then removed from the game.
Yelich was in the midst of another MVP-esque season, batting .329 with 44 home runs and 97 RBIs. Without him, the Brewers' task of climbing back into the postseason – currently 5.5 games back of the NL Central and 1.5 back of the Cubs for the final Wild Card spot as of current writing – just got that much more difficult.
