Yelich, possibly the front runner to win National League MVP after a torrid last couple months, remained in the game Sunday night and even stole a base after the injury. But doubts were cast regarding his status Monday after he underwent tests.
In his first season with the Brewers, Yelich is batting .322 with 32 home runs, 96 RBIs, 108 runs scored and 21 stolen bases.
The Brewers enter Monday’s action just 2 1/2 games behind the Cubs for the NL Central lead.
