Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo dealing with back trouble
FOX Sports Digital– “Anthony Rizzo’s back trouble flared up again after he took batting practice over the weekend, and the Chicago Cubs are sending the slugger for tests.”
Rizzo has been dealing with back tightness during summer camp, a recurring problem throughout his career. The first baseman took live BP on Sunday before the issue surfaced again.
“After his live BP the other day, once he cooled down, a little bit of that stiffness came back,” manager David Ross said Tuesday on a video conference call. “So he’s still day to day, trying to get some tests run and see where he’s at.”
