Anthony Rizzo Scratched From the Lineup Today (Back)

Chicago Cubs News

With a little tightness in the back, Anthony Rizzo has been scratched from the lineup in today’s game against the Reds.

No one is expressing any serious concern (Sun-Times), and at this point in the Spring, even a mild bit of tightness is plenty reason to take a day off. If we saw Rizzo missing more time after this, then perhaps you start to get a little concerned, especially since he’s dealt with back issue before.

For today, though, you mostly shrug and move on. If Rizzo had never even been announced in the lineup, we wouldn’t have thought a thing about it. Get your rest, Anthony.

Non-roster invitee Chris Dominguez will replace Rizzo for today.
