Yelich will be replaced by Matt Chapman of the Oakland A's.
Yelich sharing on Twitter his extreme disappointment for missing Monday's Home Run Derby.
Extremely disappointed to not be able to participate in the HR Derby tomorrow. Always been a dream but unfortunately things don't always go your way and I'm not physically able. I'm sorry if anybody was let down but I hope to be apart of it again at some point in the future.— Christian Yelich (@ChristianYelich) July 7, 2019
He is hopeful he can take part in Tuesday's All Star Game. Yelich received the most vote for any National League player, currently slated to start in right field.
