First baseman Anthony Rizzo said he began feeling back spasms Friday and they worsened during the Cubs’ victory over the Reds on Saturday. He was pulled from the game to start the eighth inning.

Back spasms end Rizzo's day early

CHICAGO – Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was pulled from Saturday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds with back spasms, but the issue isn’t believed to be serious. Rizzo said his back tightened up on him after making a stretch for a high pickoff throw earlier in Saturday’s game. Mike Olt moved from third base to first base to cover for Rizzo, and Luis Valbuena took over at third base. Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he would wait until the morning to see if Rizzo will be able to play in Sunday’s series finale against the Reds.

Rizzo's big night makes up for bad memory

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Jason Hammel might want to give Anthony Rizzo a break. Rizzo tied a career high with four hits in a 7-5 Cubs win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night, and in his exuberance he forgot about Hammel’s first start of the season last week. “I have to throw my first baseman under the bus,” Hammel joked after the game. “He just congratulated me on my first National League win. Just make sure everyone knows Rizzo was not there in Pittsburgh last week.

Rizzo getting chance to figure out lefties

CHICAGO -- Just four games into the season, Rick Renteria has been playing the matchups when making out his lineup. To the dismay of some, youngsters such as Mike Olt and Junior Lake have found themselves sitting when a righty is on the mound. However, one young player sure to find his name in the lineup every day is Anthony Rizzo. “The more he continues to face lefties, the more he’s adjusting his approach,” Renteria said. “Over the long haul, hopefully he starts to improve.
