Christian Yelich breaks kneecap, out for season

Christian Yelich breaks kneecap, out for season”

Christian Yelich will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his kneecap on a foul ball tonight against the Marlins, the Brewers announced. The 27-year-old remained down for several minutes, then limped off the field.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell stated after the game, "He's a special player, it's a joy to watch him play everyday and he's the best at what he does". The Brewers now trail the Cubs in the NL Wild Card race by 2.0 games. The Cubs played at the San Diego Padres late Tuesday.

"We feel very bad for Christian", Counsell said. Yelich's campaign will conclude with a.329/.429/.671 line, 44 home runs, 30 stolen bases and 7.7 fWAR/7.1 rWAR in 580 plate appearances. "I went out there, and his whole body was shaking".

"This is a gut punch", Stearns added. President of baseball operations David Stearns said Tuesday (via Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) that there's not yet "a definitive time frame" for Yelich's recovery, nor is it clear whether he'll need surgery.

Yelich, the reigning NL MVP, is once again in the running for the MVP Award.
