Anthony Rizzo with a run scored Thursday versus the Cardinals

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI. He came into the game in a terrible slump so hopefully, this is the beginning of the inevitable recovery.

Fantasy Impact

Rizzo is one of the most solid fantasy assets in the MLB and becomes an amazing one if your league gives him second base eligibility.

Anthony Rizzo (back) activated from the disabled list

Anthony Rizzo (back) has been activated from the 10-day disabled list and is batting third for the Cubs in Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Rizzo's back tightness was nothing serious, and he likely would have been activated on Monday had the game not been postponed. He should be ready to roll from here on out and should hopefully jumpstart a stagnant Cubs offense.

Anthony Rizzo (back) to come off the DL before Tuesday

Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo will be activated from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

Fantasy Impact

The 28-year-old world champion was dealing with a back problem, but it appears the issue is behind him. Rizzo is hitting just .107 (in 28 at bats) to start the year, but he should be re-inserted into all fantasy lineups now that he's healthy.

Anthony Rizzo (back) to return "on time"

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Madden says that first baseman Anthony Rizzo (back) is scheduled to return "on time".

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear if this means Rizzo will be activated off the disabled list when first eligible on Monday, or if it just means things are progressing well. Either way it's good news for fantasy owners to hear. Rizzo is eligible at both first and second base in many formats, and should be one of the most valuable position players to own the remainder of 2018.

Anthony Rizzo being placed on disabled list with back injury

Anthony Rizzo is being placed on the 10-day disabled list with a back injury, according to Cubs beat writer Gordon Wittenmyer on Twitter. The move is backdated to Friday, April 6, meaning Rizzo is eligible to be activated as early as Monday, April 16, when the Cubs open up a series against the St. Louis Cardinals at home.

Fantasy Impact

Wittenmyer adds that there has not been a setback for Rizzo. The team just wanted to be cautious and did not want to continue to play shorthanded. Rizzo is expected to be ready to play when he is eligible to be activated a week from today.
