The Chicago Cubs placed first baseman Anthony Rizzo on the 10-day disabled list with lower back tightness on Tuesday morning before the home opener.

Rizzo shared during Wednesday's media interview that he thinks that a Cincinnati hotel bed might be the main culprit of his lower back injury.

"I think the next time I go [to Cincinnati], I'll sleep on the floor," Rizzo said. "I just have to take care of myself better."

Sounds like Rizzo might need to find new accommodations and/or possibly a better pillow for any future baseball trips to Cincy.
