Yelich will now require two or three days of full baseball activities without setback before he returns to the Brewers. The report said that should be within the next couple days.

The Brewers are just 8-8 this season, tied with the Cubs for third in the National League Central, so Yelich's bat and glove will be welcomed additions.
