Yelich says he had 'pity party' for himself after injury

MILWAUKEE (AP) Christian Yelich said he had a "pity party" for himself after fracturing his right kneecap.

Hurt when he fouled off a pitch last week, the reigning NL MVP will miss the rest of the season as the Milwaukee Brewers try to make the playoffs. The projected recovery time for the two-time All-Star outfielder is eight-to-10 weeks, and doctors say surgery is not necessary.

"I think the hardest part of the whole thing was the unknown for about 24 hours," Yelich said Monday in his first public comments since the injury. "It was a broad spectrum of outcomes and recovery times, depending on what the MRI showed. We got the good news of no surgery. Once I knew that, it was just about getting better and trying to make a full recovery."
