Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (knee), who missed the final three weeks of the 2019 season with a fractured right kneecap, said that he is ready for the start of spring training. Its good, Yelich said. Finally, fully healthy, ready to go. Shouldnt be any limitations this spring. Its nice to be healthy again. The Brewers must decide if they will move Yelich from right field to left field now that Avisail Garcia is in the fold and may be a better fit in right field because of his strong arm. The 28-year-old won the National League MVP in 2018 and was runner-up in 2019, hitting .329/.429/.671 with 44 home runs, 97 RBI and 30 stolen bases in 130 games. He'll be a surefire first-round fantasy selection.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (knee), who fractured his right kneecap last September, said he will be ready for spring training. "If the Milwaukee Brewers had an actual game tomorrow," Yelich said, "then I would be able to participate." The Brewers will be careful with the 2018 National League MVP, but the expectation is that Yelich will be in the Opening Day lineup on March 26. The 28-year-old still had stellar numbers in 2019 before his injury, hitting .329/.429/.671 with 44 home runs, 100 runs scored, 97 RBI and 30 stolen bases in 489 at-bats. He'll be a first-round fantasy selection in 2020 despite coming off a pretty serious injury.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (knee) said he won't rule out a potential return if the Brewers reach the World Series. "It would be cutting it close, but you cant rule anything out," Yelich said. Milwaukee first has to win the National League wild-card game against the Nationals on Tuesday night. It's a long shot to happen, but Yelich would be a huge boost to the Brew Crew lineup if he made it back deep into the postseason. The 2018 NL MVP was putting up MVP numbers again this year before his injury, slashing .329/.429/.671 with 44 home runs, 97 RBI and 30 stolen bases in 130 games. Trent Grisham is hoping to pick up the slack if the Brewers make it past the Nats.
