Anthony Rizzo suffers ankle injury

Okay, maybe that’s a little harsh for the Chicago Cubs outfielder. But Albert Almora has been put on notice, productions over talent is the name of the game. When the Chicago Cubs Ian Happ was sent down to Triple-A Iowa to begin the season, it was Albert Almora‘s time to shine.
