2018 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY WATCH: ANTHONY RIZZO ENDS UP ON DL WITH BACK

                                                             

Add yet another name to the growing disabled list as the Chicago Cubs finally threw in the towel in terms of waiting for the pain in first baseman Anthony Rizzo's back to subside.  Rizzo missed the entire weekend of games due to pain in his back and when he continued to report pain on Monday, the team decided to make the DL decision.  The move was backdated to last Friday which means Rizzo could return in little more than a week which is not disastrous but still a decent inconvenience for his fantasy baseball owners who likely spent a second-round pick on him. 

Analysis:  Tough blow here as Rizzo is one of the most dependable sluggers in all of fantasy baseball and any game he missed is a big deal.  Be that as it may, this doesn't sound like a major deal long-term so no need to panic.
