Player Notes
An MRI taken Tuesday on Anthony Rizzo's lower back revealed a muscle strain.

Advice: Cubs manager Rick Renteria acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that Rizzo would be placed on the 15-day disabled list if rosters hadn't expanded, so it's going to be a while before the first baseman returns to the lineup. He has been sidelined since August 26.

Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday afternoon against the Brewers.

Advice: Rizzo sat out the Cubs' entire four-game weekend series in St. Louis due to tightness in his lower back and will now miss Monday's series-opener with the Brewers. The Cubs haven't offered any indication about when he might return. Chris Valaika is at first base Monday.

Anthony Rizzo (back) is not expected to return to the lineup this weekend.

Advice: Rizzo was pulled from Tuesday's game due to tightness in his lower back and has yet to progress enough to return to the lineup. He'll hope to be back in the lineup during the Cubs' homestand, which begins Monday. Chris Valaika will once again draw the start at first base in his place.

Anthony Rizzo (back) remained out of the Cubs' lineup Friday.

Advice: The Cubs said that they pulled Rizzo from Tuesday's game as a precaution due to lower back tightness, but he's now sitting out a third straight game, so he obviously hasn't progressed as hoped. Chris Valaika is covering first base Friday.

Anthony Rizzo (back) is out again Thursday.

Advice: Rizzo also sat out Wednesday after leaving Tuesday's series-opener against the Reds with lower back tightness. He's still considered day-to-day. Chris Valaika will start at first base in Thursday's series finale.

Anthony Rizzo (back) is not in the Cubs' lineup Wednesday.

Advice: Rizzo exited Tuesday's game due to lower back tightness. It's not considered a big deal, but the Cubs want to be safe. Rizzo should be back in there in a day or two. Chris Valaika is playing first base Wednesday.

Anthony Rizzo left Tuesday's game against the Reds as a precaution due to lower back tightness.

Advice: The Cubs double-switched him out of the game with a three-run lead. Rizzo should have a shot to return to the lineup on Wednesday. He slugged his 30th homer of the season in one of his four at-bats before exiting.
