Can Christian Yelich still win the NL MVP Award?

Christian Yelich's National League MVP odds were dealt a crushing blow on Tuesday evening when the 27-year-old outfielder fractured his right kneecap in a game against the Miami Marlins. The bad break - both literal and figurative - occurred in the first inning when Yelich fouled an Elieser Hernandez pitch off his knee. The two-time All Star was forced to exit the game and has since been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Bellinger surging ahead of Yelich in NL MVP odds

Cody Bellinger finally has a little breathing room in the 2019 National League MVP race. The Dodgers outfielder has seen his NL MVP odds improve from -110 on August 1 to -160 on August 5. Bellinger's shorter odds have come at the expense of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich, who plummeted from -110 to +130 over the same span.
