Cubs News: Anthony Rizzo to undergo an MRI on his back

This is not great news to report regarding the Cubs.
Ross said that after Rizzo's batting practice on Sunday that the decision to do some tests was warranted after continued lower back tightness by the star player.
"Once he cooled down, some of that stiffness came back," Ross said to the media Tuesday. "He's still day-to-day. Going to get some tests run and see where he's at."
The results of Rizzo's MRI should be back on Wednesday. He has missed practice since last Tuesday when he first felt the back tightness.
In 2019, he hit an impressive .293 with 27 homers and 94 RBIs.
