Player Notes
Anthony Rizzo (back) is in the Cubs' starting lineup on Monday night against the Reds.

Advice: Rizzo missed nearly three weeks with a back injury. The first baseman is batting .278/.375/.514 with 30 home runs and 71 RBI in 129 games and will look to finish off his breakout 2014 campaign with a bang.

Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is unlikely to play this weekend.

Advice: Rizzo has progressed steadily this week in his recovery from a back injury, but he still needs a few more days. A return early next week would seem to be possible. The slugging first baseman hasn't played since August 26.

Anthony Rizzo (back) hopes to return to the Cubs' lineup by the end of the week.

Advice: If not by the weekend, Rizzo thinks he'll "for sure" be ready to play during the Cubs' homestand that begins next Monday. Manager Rick Renteria was more cautious regarding a potential timetable, saying, "I don't want to speculate on that part." Rizzo worked out for the second straight day Tuesday, taking some infield and light batting practice. It looked likely last week that his season was over, but it appears the first baseman will make it back after all.

Anthony Rizzo (back) took some ground balls and a few swings in the batting cage Monday.

Advice: Rizzo has been out since August 26 with a mild lower back strain, but he's now hopeful that he'll be able to return this weekend. However, Cubs manager Rick Renteria wants to see more before talking about a timeline. "I'll reserve my optimism," Renteria said. "Today is the first day where he's gone out there. He's trying to see how his body is feeling, but I'll just say we'll keep digging it as it comes."
