Brewers say Christian Yelich will not need surgery, out two months

The Milwaukee Brewers say that NL MVP Christian Yelich will not have to have surgery on his broken knee cap, but will be out of baseball-related activities for at least eight weeks - a timeline that would keep him out of any postseason action if the prognosis is accurate.

As reported by's Adam McCalvy:

And from Todd Rosiak of the Journal Sentinel:

Before the announcement, GM David Stearns discussed Yelich's status on Wisconsin's Morning News.

"At this point, what we're assuming and playing for is that Christian is not going to play again this season in any capacity," he said.

"If something very unforeseen would change that, we can alter our prognosis, but our plan and Christian's plan right now is that he's not going to play again this season."
