The 2018 National League MVP (and possibly 2019) will be able to return to running as his next step in rehabilitating a knee injury that prematurely ended his season.
From USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale:
Christian Yelich, who missed the last three weeks of the #Brewers season with his knee injury, will begin running this week and expects to be fully healthy for winter workouts

A fractured knee cap ended Yelich’s season in early September, but he still led MLB in batting average and earned his third Silver Slugger award for the best offensive numbers at his position.
The 2019 National League MVP Award is expected to be given out Thursday.
