Milwaukee Brewers’ Christian Yelich tests positive for COVID

Brewers left-back Christian Yelich signs autographs for fans before a game last week.  He has tested positive for COVID-19.

PITTSBURGH – Baseball operations brewery president David Stearns announced Tuesday afternoon that left-back Christian Yelich had tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed in quarantine in Milwaukee for at least 10 days.

Stearns said utility player Jace Peterson was also placed in quarantine for seven days due to contact tracking according to the protocols of Major League Baseball. Peterson did not test positive for COVID-19.

Brewers’ charter flight here from Milwaukee was delayed Monday night through Tuesday morning to allow for further contact tracking to ensure no other players were quarantined. Stearns said he had “every expectation” that his team’s game against the Pirates would be played according to plan Tuesday night at PNC Park.
