Anthony Rizzo’s MRI Confirms Rib Inflammation, Still Day-to-Day
An undercurrent of anxiety, perhaps even dread, ran through Cubdom when it was revealed that Anthony Rizzo was getting an MRI on his back. He has missed a week of workouts and felt things tighten up again after participating in BP Sunday, so the Cubs needed to take a step beyond just giving him some rest.
The results were as good as could be expected, confirming the team’s initial belief that rib inflammation on the left side was leading to spasms in Rizzo’s lower back. He remains day-to-day and should be able to return to action soon.
