Rizzo gets day off, Maybin scratched with stomach bug originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Ross said Maybin felt sick overnight and is still under the weather today. He was originally in the lineup playing left field, batting sixth.
“When you’re feeling bad all night and the stomach’s not good, I don’t want to put him out there like that,” Ross said.
Ross added Anthony Rizzo is healthy but getting a day off. Rizzo is 3-for-28 (.107) in his last seven games with one walk and four strikeouts.
Second baseman Jason Kipnis, who last played on Tuesday, is dealing with “bumps and bruises” but could play if needed.
“He’s fine,” Ross said of Kipnis. “We all have a little bit of bumps and bruises. There’s a couple guys that are dealing with some little nagging things but are continuing to post.”
