Brewers outfielder Yelich leaves game with lower back tightness

June 29 2018 3:26 AM

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich left Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Reds after one at-bat due to lower back tightness, the team announced.

Yelich, who was traded to Milwaukee from the Miami Marlins this offseason, is hitting .289 with 11 home runs, 34 RBIs and 10 stolen bases in 2018.

It is bad news for the Brewers, who just placed fellow outfielder Lorenzo Cain on the 10-day disabled list.

Keon Broxton, who was just recalled to the roster in a corresponding move from Cain's injury, replaced Yelich in the line-up.

Yelich went on the disabled list in 2015 with a lower back strain, so back ailments have bothered him before.
