Milwaukee Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich, out for the rest of 2019 with a broken patella, will not need surgery on the fracture. Yelich is thus expected to be good to go at the start of 2020, so dynasty owners should be relieved. As is often the case in September, however, the Brewers have not placed Yelich on the injured list (although placement on the 60-day list could theoretically open up a 40-man roster spot). In redraft leagues, you can't afford to throw away the bench spot, so if you're holding it's only for sentimental reasons. The best player in standard 5x5 roto is now a trivial redraft cut.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich(kneecap) is out for the remainder of the 2019 season with a fractured kneecap, according to the Journal Sentinel. Yelich exited the game in the first inning on Tuesday after fouling a pitch off his right kneecap. With Yelich out, this will likely mean an increase in playing time for Lorenzo Cain and Trent Grisham after the pair had been splitting time in center over the last month. Grisham will likely benefit the most from this, and Yelich owners should look to grab him as an immediate replacement in most leagues. Grisham is currently hitting .324/.378/.441 over his last 11 games and had a five-hit performance on Monday night.
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich(knee) was removed from Tuesday's game in the first inning after fouling a pitch off of his right knee, according to Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He was replaced mid at-bat by Trent Grisham, who finished the plate appearance by striking out. There's no word yet as to the severity of the injury or how much time Yelich may miss, so check back for more updates on his status.
