Christian Yelich to miss remainder of season


Milwaukee Brewers outfielder, Christian Yelich, will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a broken kneecap.

Last year’s MVP was hitting .330 for Milwaukee this season, with 97 RBI and 44 home runs. Yelich was solidly in contention for back-to-back MVP seasons.

In the top of the first inning, Yelich fouled a ball off of his knee, leaving the game immediately. The specifics of the injury were not reported until after the Brewers had topped the Miami Marlins, 4-3.

An injury this serious to their star player could not have come at a worse time, as the Brewers are chasing the Cubs for the second Wild Card spot. Following the win, Milwaukee is 1.5 games behind Chicago, who play a late game in San Diego on Tuesday. If the Brewers do make the playoffs, Yelich will not play.

Nothing is known about who will replace Yelich in the lineup, although he was replaced in the game by rookie Trent Grisham. Replacing his production, however, is all but a lost cause.

The Brewers play the third in a four-game series against the Marlins Wednesday.
