April 28 (UPI) -- Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich, who was the 2018 National League MVP, left Sunday's game against the New York Mets with a lower back injury.
The team did not disclose how or when Yelich may have injured his back. He went 1-for-2 before leaving the game with a single off Stephen Matz in the fourth inning.
Yelich missed just under two weeks in April 2018 with a strained oblique. He also missed nearly a week last June with a sore back.
Ben Gamel took Yelich's spot in right field to begin the bottom of the fifth inning.
