Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Cubs' 12-11 spring loss to the Athletics on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Rizzo has hit well this spring, posting a .333 AVG and .968 OPS in 24 AB thus far. The reliable slugger posted something of a down season in 2018. His 25 home runs, .187 ISO, and .846 OPS were all five year lows. Rizzo dealt with back issues towards the beginning of the year, and a brutal April that saw Rizzo hit .149 with a .448 OPS killed his overall numbers. He was his normal self after the cold start and there's no reason to panic despite slightly reduced 2018 numbers. He's a bankable top-35 player.
