Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich left this afternoon’s fight against the Cardinals in the second half, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel was among those to be noticed (Twitter link). He is dealing with back pain per. Adam McCalvy from MLB.com (via Twitter).
Jackie Bradley Jr. replaced Yelich in the left field. Bradley, Lorenzo Cain and Avisaíl García would constitute Brewers outfield most days if Yelich is forced to miss any time with Billy McKinney at hand as depth. Of course, there are no indications at this point that Yelich’s removal was anything other than due caution.
