Cubs Injury update: Anthony Rizzo out Tuesday

By on 9/16/2014 06:00:00 PM

The Cubs will sit Anthony Rizzo on Tuesday, as they play the second game of a 3 game set against the Reds. Rizzo returned to the lineup yesterday for the first time in 18 games. Rizzo had been out with a sore back, which I covered here.

Rizzo returned to the lineup yesterday in a big way. The 25 year old All-Star went 2-4 with a walk-off solo home run in the ninth inning.

Rizzo is out of the line up on Tuesday due to a scheduled day off. The Cubs want to take it slow with their slugging first baseman. They want to make sure Rizzo is at his best for next season, when they might have a shot at competing.
Rizzo now has a slash of .280/.376/.520 with 31 HRs and 72 RBIs. His 31 homers are second in the NL, behind Giancarlo Stanton (37).
