Reigning National League MVP Christian Yelich has been unstoppable again this year for the Milwaukee Brewers, but on Sunday he was forced to take a seat.

The issue that caused Yelich to leave the game against the New York Mets is being described as “lower back discomfort,” per Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.

Hopefully this is just a minor issue that will allow him to return soon, because what Yelich has done this year is nothing short of legendary. In 100 at-bats, he’s hitting .350 with 14 home runs, 34 RBI, 20 walks and six stolen bases.
