Christian Yelich Fractures Kneecap With Foul Ball, Is Done For The Season

Well, this blows. The Milwaukee Brewers are very much in the hunt for the second National League Wild Card spot, trailing the Cubs by just a game and a half. But their pursuit from this point on will no longer include the services of reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich, who has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a fractured right kneecap.

The Brewers aren’t the buzzsaw they were in the second half last season, so you might’ve missed the fact that Yelich actually meaningfully improved on last year’s MVP campaign almost across the board. His batting average (.330), on-base percentage (.430), slugging percentage (.672), dingers (40), stolen bases (30), and fWAR (7.7) are all new career highs, and he’s tied his career high in walks (80). Apart from how devastating his loss is likely to be for the Brewers, it’s extremely shitty news for people who like to watch baseball games.
