Christian Yelich out for season after fracturing kneecap

Christian Yelich will miss the remainder of the season after fracturing his right kneecap in Tuesday's game against the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Yelich fouled a ball off his knee and immediately looked seriously injured, and the worst is now confirmed. It's a devastating blow to the Brewers as they try to chase down a playoff spot, to fantasy owners, and to Yelich himself. Yelich's dynasty league value should take a small hit, as a lengthy recovery from the injury may impact his availability for the start of next season. As for his replacement, Ben Gamel, Trent Grisham, and Hernan Perez are likely to see the majority of the time in the outfield.

Christian Yelich leaves game after fouling ball off knee Tuesday

Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich left Tuesday night’s game at against the Marlins after fouling a ball off his right knee during his first at-bat. He stayed down on the ground for several minutes before eventually being able to walk off under his own power.

Fantasy Impact

While it is a good sign that Yelich was eventually able to walk off on his own, he appeared to be in a lot of pain and stayed down on the ground for several minutes. We have seen players like Brandon Lowe and Yandy Diaz miss months this season after fouling balls off of their own legs/feet, so fantasy owners should continue holding their breath until more information is available. Hopefully, his removal was precautionary and further tests do not reveal a significant injury.
