“Christian is fully vaccinated,” Stearns told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “He was vaccinated with the team as a whole right at the beginning of the season. He has taken precautions seriously and guidelines seriously throughout the season.”

Stearns said Peterson went on the list due to contact tracing and hadn’t tested positive.

Stearns said Yelich will miss at least 10 days from the date of his positive test and that Peterson will miss at least even days.

The Brewers activated outfielder Lorenzo Cain from the injured list and called up infielder Pablo Reyes from Triple-A Nashville.
