Great news, Milwaukee Brewers fans! Christian Yelich’s knee is 100%. How do we know? Because Yeli told us himself!

TMZ caught Yelich at the airport and asked him about his recovery. When the paparazzi asked him how his knee was, the reigning MVP replied, “We’re all good, man.”

He then confirmed with the camera man that he’ll be ready to go for Spring Training without a doubt.

Of course, we all know that Yelich broke his knee cap on an awkward foul ball in Miami. Since then, we found out that his recovery would take 6-8 weeks, which seemed to be on the short side of patella recoveries.

While his season was cut short, Yelich still held onto the lead in some of the most important offensive categories for the NL. He looks to retain his MVP award next month when the major award winners will be announced.
