Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich won't be returning Sunday after all.
Yelich, who moved to Milwaukee in a high-profile trade from the Marlins in the offseason, has been on the disabled list with an oblique injury. Yelich was first eligible to return Sunday against the Mets, but manager Craig Counsell said Saturday that Yelich needs more time to heal.
Check that: No BP for Yelich, who took 70 swings in the cage instead. It was his best day yet, per Craig Counsell, but Brewers will not activate him tomorrow. They want Yelich closer to 100 percent. https://t.co/b8Rd1Jv06d— Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) April 14, 2018
After taking live batting practice Friday, Yelich said he felt great. He didn't take additional swings Saturday, but did play catch with Counsell.
Yelich has 10 hits in 26 at bats this season, with one home run and five RBIs.
