Christian Yelich Fouls One Off His Knee, Goes Down, Leaves Game (UPDATE: Fracture, Season Over)

Yelich fouled a ball off his right knee Tuesday versus the Miami Marlins and straight away remaining the activity.

Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich does not need surgery on his fractured right kneecap, but he still won't return this season no matter how far the team advances. Stearns told Major League Baseball reporter Christina De Nicola there will be no need for surgery - and Yelich's recovery time will likely be eight to ten weeks. The 27-year-old outfielder will finish his season hitting an absurd.329/.429/.671 (172 wRC+) with 44 homers. "It looks like Christian will be able to avoid surgery". It was in the beginning feared that he would want surgical treatment, but his current standing usually means a shorter restoration time of 8 to 10 weeks. "We'll probably get that done over the weekend or next week".

"We dodged a little bit of a bullet", Stearns said.

Christian Yelich was on the field during Wednesday night's 7-5 victory against the Marlins that lifted the Brewers into a tie for the NL's second wild-card spot with the Chicago Cubs. "I will be just fine and am looking forward to making a full recovery and supporting the boys the rest of the season".
