Rizzo was out running on the field before the game, and apparently his badly-sprained ankle, which was in a boot, is now good enough for him to PLAY. WHAT IN THE WORLD:
Cubs just announced that Anthony Rizzo is leading off for the Cubs and playing first base tonight.

Talk about a jolt to the energy for the team. I don’t even know what to say. This is amazing.
How about this as a good way to start your Thursday evening #Cubs fans?! #44, Anthony Rizzo out on the field doing some light jogging before the game with the training staff on hand to watch. pic.twitter.com/1Ei1VUZ5WT
