Anthony Rizzo to rest every other day - Anthony Rizzo (1B) Chicago Cubs

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday that he plans initially to only play Anthony Rizzo every other day.

Rizzo, Alcantara out of lineup

CHICAGO – Anthony Rizzo wasn't in the starting lineup against the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday, as the Cubs are playing it cautious with his back one day after he returned and hit a game-winning home run. “He’s been down three weeks,” manager Rick Renteria said Tuesday afternoon. “As far as we’re concerned, it’s like a rehab schedule.” Rizzo missed 18 games with a sore back but promptly returned Monday and hit a walk-off blast in the Cubs' 1-0 win over the Reds.

Uh-oh. “Yeah, I was just messing with the guys,” Rizzo said with a smile. It had been three weeks since Rizzo played, much less homered. Much less won a game. Much less messed with teammates. But for a team that had lost eight of nine games, a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday...

Rizzo returns to Cubs with a blast

CHICAGO – He’s baaaaack. Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit the game-winning, walk-off home run in his team’s 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night, 19 games after hitting his previous home run, also against the Reds. “Second pitch I just let loose,” Rizzo said of his ninth-inning at-bat against Pedro Villarreal. “Put a good swing on it.” In between the home runs, Rizzo sat on the bench for 18 games after his back stiffened up during one of the many rain delays the Cubs have endured this season.
