Christian Yelich scratched from lineup with back spasms


The Brewers are back home tonight to start a two-game series against the Reds, but they will be without their star right fielder tonight. Christian Yelich was in the original lineup but was scratched a short time ago due to back spasms. Yelich has been dealing with this injury for a while this season, and based on Ryan Braun's injury history, we know that these can be tricky to manage if not handled correctly. Ben Gamel will take Yelich's place in right field, with Mike Moustakas moving up to bat second.
