Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich’s season is over at the worst possible time for the team’s playoff hopes!
The Brewers announced the outfielder suffered a fractured kneecap during Tuesday’s game against the Miami Marlins. Read on for more about Brewers Christian Yelich…
Yelich has enough PAs to finish 2019 as a qualified hitter. That means he set these single-season Brewers records:
172 wRC+ (tops 2011 Braun’s 171)
.441 wOBA (1987 Molitor, .433)
1.100 OPS (2009 Fielder, 1.014)
.671 SLG (2007 Fielder, .618)
11.11 AB/HR (2007 Fielder, 11.46)

CelebNSports247.com reports that Christian Yelich was replaced by Trent Grisham in the first inning when he fouled a ball off his knee via Fox Sports Wisconsin’s Sophia Minnaert.
With the team up in arms now as they fight for a playoff spot it has been confirmed that Brewers Christian Yelich will miss the remainder of the 2019 season after fracturing his knee cap.
This is the worst time for the Milwaukee Brewers to lose a player with an extended injury.

Yelich was a key player for the Brewers this season since he is once again in the National League MVP race with a .330/.430/.672 slash line, 44 homers and 97 RBI in 129 games.
The Brewers entered Tuesday’s game with a 75-68 record, two games behind the Chicago Cubs for the second wild-card spot in the NL.
Now Milwaukee’s fate is undetermined since they will be without Yelich.
The Brewers superstar and 2018 MVP Christian Yelich season career is at a grinding halt with no hope to repeat his MVP goals and push Milwaukee to the postseason all because of his injury.
They have Josh Hader in the bullpen, but inconsistency swirls with him. Yelich was the Brewers only real hope to carry them to the promised land
Fingers crossed that Yelich doesn’t need surgery and can suit up in 2020 because the Brewers have no shot without him.
This doctor’s projected timeline is 4-6 months if Yelich doesn’t need surgery and 9-11 months if he does.
Here’s hoping he doesn’t need surgery https://t.co/pcxtA8LeTh
