Brewers' Yelich second in MVP voting

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich came close to making history on Thursday, but ultimately was not chosen for his second straight Most Valuable Player award.

 

Yelich came in 50 points behind the Los Angeles Dodgers' Cody Bellinger in MVP voting, an impressive accomplishment figuring a broken kneecap kept him out of the final 18 regular season games and their wild card matchup against the eventual World Series champion Washington Nationals. That does not mean Yelich was not deserving of the award, improving his number from his MVP season just a year ago. Yelich was vying to be the 15th player in MLB history to win MVP honors in back to back seasons.
