I know you’re probably feeling quite cautious at this moment, especially after a one or two-day thing turned into a disabled list stint, but this is as good as a sign can get on an injured player:
Rizzo should be good to go Monday. #Cubs Maddon: "He's doing really well. I think he could play today if it was necessary and there weren't the restrictions of the DL"

Anthony Rizzo is not eligible to come off of the 10-day disabled list until Monday, but, based on Maddon’s comments there, it sounds very much like the expectation is that he will return that day when the Cubs host the Cardinals.
In another good sign, Rizzo was out on the field today taking grounders:

And, of course, Rizzo won’t let his back issue stop him from doing what he does best:
