VIDEO: Christian Yelich Leaves Game Against Marlins After Fouling Ball off Knee

Milwaukee Brewers v Miami Marlins

In the midst of their playoff push, the Milwaukee Brewers were dealt a bad hand on Tuesday night. During their game against the Miami Marlins, Brewers star outfielder Christian Yelich fouled a ball off his right knee in the top of the first inning. Yelich was unable to continue his at-bat, and was immediately replaced by Trent Grisham.

While Brewers fans are freaking out at the defending NL MVP leaving the game, they can take solace in one thing. After sitting on the ground for a couple of minutes, Yelich was able to walk off on his own power and without assistance from the medical staff.

Entering Tuesday night, Yelich continued his campaign to repeat as league MVP. The Brewers outfielder is batting .332 with 44 home runs, 97 RBI, and 30 stolen bases.

Milwaukee will hope the injury isn't too serious, as they remain in the thick of the NL Wild Card race, sitting two games behind the Chicago Cubs for the second spot.

We will keep you posted once the Milwaukee Brewers release an update on Yelich.
