Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo Placed on 10-day Disabled List

April 9th, 2018

After being ruled out for the fourth straight game, the Chicago Cubs are expected to place first baseman Anthony Rizzo on the disabled list due to a back injury. The DL stint will be backdated to Friday, which would allow Rizzo to return sooner and be back in Chicago's lineup next week. For now, fantasy owners should not consider this a long-term absence and more just the club taking caution early in the year.
