Christian Yelich (COVID-19) could return for Brewers Thursday

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich (COVID-19) could be activated on Thursday when first eligible.

What It Means:

Yelich is feeling better after experiencing mild COVID-19 symptoms last week. He will undergo testing Wednesday and, if cleared, Yelich will be allowed to report to the ballpark Thursday. However, the Brewers may want to give their star outfielder a couple days to ease back into things. Tyrone Taylor has seen an increase in playing time during Yelich's absence.

Yelich is averaging 10.1 FanDuel points per game this season while slashing .235/.382/.367 with 6 homers, 28 RBI, 7 steals, and 44 runs scored over 275 plate appearances (67 games). His 18.2 percent walk rate is sixth-best among hitters with at least 100 plate appearances this season.
