Brewers' Christian Yelich tests positive for COVID-19

The Milwaukee Brewers are placing outfielder Christian Yelich on the COVID-19 injured list.

What It Means:

Yelich tested positive for the virus and will miss at least 10 days. He started developing mild symptoms on Monday despite being fully vaccinated. The Brewers are also placing Jace Peterson on the COVID-19 list due to contact tracing and he will miss at least seven days. Lorenzo Cain (hamstring) has been activated from the 10-day IL in a corresponding roster move. Jackie Bradley is covering left field on Tuesday against right-hander Luis Oviedo and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cain is returning to center field and hitting seventh. Willy Adames is hitting second and Omar Narvaez is batting third.

numberFire’s models project Bradley for 10.1 FanDuel points and he has a $2,300 salary on Tuesday. Per our MLB Heat Map, the Brewers have an implied total of 4.4 runs. Among Tuesday's listed starters, Oviedo is registering the worst walk rate this season (13.8 percent).
