Anthony Rizzo is on the Cubs 40-man roster and the Cubs will announce the corresponding 25-man roster move on Tuesday. Anthony Rizzo will fly to Chicago on Monday night and be at Wrigley Field on Tuesday. Rizzo is expected to be in the starting lineup against right-hander Dillon Gee.
The I-Cubs play-by-play team caught up with Anthony Rizzo in the clubhouse shortly after he found out he had been called up. Rizzo said he could not avoid all of the news and rumors about a possible call-up. Rizzo admitted he dd not know for sure he was going to be called-up until he was pulled. He added that he felt a sense of relief with the call-up and said he will miss all of his teammates and coaching staff. Rizzo hit a deep fly that the wind caught and held in the park in his last at bat. He said he was glad he squared the last one up because he hadn’t been hitting well over the last few games.
