  • Anthony Rizzo Dealing With Back Soreness

    New York Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo was scratched from the lineup with lower back soreness ahead of his team's game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday. Rizzo was replaced at first base by norma second baseman D.J. LeMahieu. The veteran first baseman has had back issues flare up on him previously this season, most recently forcing him to take a four-game break spanning July 5 through July 8. Rizzo should be considered day-to-day for now, at least until the Yankees give an update on his status. The former Cub is hitting .227 with 27 homers, 64 runs, 66 RBI, and six steals in 2022.

  • Anthony Rizzo Sitting Out Saturday

    New York Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo is not in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Kansas City Royals. Rizzo will take a seat after starting the last seven games for the Yankees. He's hitting only .225 on the year, but he has a .345 on-base percentage, 24 home runs, 59 RBI, 60 runs scored and six stolen bases in 333 at-bats to make him a must-start in fantasy. DJ LeMahieu is starting at first base and is hitting leadoff on Saturday against Royals right-hander Jonathan Heasley. Over the last two weeks, LeMahieu has gone 12-for-36 (.333) with a homer, four RBI and 11 runs scored in 10 games, so he's definitely worth considering in DFS on Saturday.
