MIAMI -- Milwaukee Brewers star Christian Yelich will miss the rest of the season after fracturing his right kneecap in Tuesday's victory over the Miami Marlins.

The Brewers announced the extent of the injury following their 4-3 win over the Marlins. General manager David Stearns said Yelich will return to Milwaukee for additional tests on Wednesday, adding that it's not yet known if he'll need surgery.

Yelich, 27, was injured in the top of the first inning when he fouled a pitch off his kneecap.

That is a tough, very painful injury that takes about 6-8 weeks to heal from. He should be OK going into spring training, but he won't be able to do much weight bearing exercise this winter. Lots of upper body stuff, but not much with his legs.
