The Brewers have activated outfielder Christian Yelich from the 10-day injured list and optioned left-hander Hoby Milner to Triple-A Nashville, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweets.
Yelich has already been on the IL twice this year on account of back issues, and the Brewers can only hope it won’t happen again. The former NL MVP missed about three weeks during his first stint on the shelf, and one game after he returned, Milwaukee had to put Yelich back on the IL on May 4. Yelich has been in great form when healthy enough to play, having batted .353/.463/.382 in 10 games and 41 plate appearances.
Yelich is the Brewers’ go-to option in left field, but they’ve mostly had to rely on Billy McKinney, Tyrone Taylor and Jackie Bradley Jr. with him unavailable for the majority of the season. All three of them have struggled to varying extents this year.
