Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo (ankle) will be in a walking boot for five to seven days. Rizzo underwent an MRI on Monday and was diagnosed with a lateral right ankle sprain. Rizzo will be re-evaluated when he sheds the walking boot and more should be known about his return after that process. Catcher Victor Caratini is at first base Monday and could see more starts there with Rizzo sidelined. Ian Happ could also see more playing with Rizzo sidelined. Caratini is hitting .282 with 10 home runs and 32 RBI this year and isnt a bad option in NL-only and deeper mixed leagues.
Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo (ankle) left Sundays game early with a sprained right ankle. Rizzo hurt his ankle when he was trying to field a bunt. The first baseman will have a MRI on Monday and that will help determine how long he may miss. Ian Happ took over at first base for Rizzo and could see more at-bats with Rizzo sidelined.
Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is the leadoff hitter on Thursday as the team is shaking things up a bit. Kyle Schwarber is in the three-hole for the first time all season and Kris Bryant hits cleanup for just the second time. Ian Happ is also making his first start since September 3, while Victor Caranti is catching. The Cubs are facing San Diego Padres starting pitcher Dinelson Lamet. Lamet has been uneven in 11 starts since returning from Tommy John surgery, and so Rizzo and Schwarber are solid DFS options as they also have a platoon advantage.
