Anthony Rizzo continues hot hitting
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo continued his strong play Wednesday against the Pirates, with his fourth multi-hit game in a row in a 7-5 win.

Rizzo had a season-high four hits, including his second and third extra-base hits with a pair of double. He drove in just one run, though he did score twice while finishing the game 4 for 5.

Rizzo opened the season with an 0-for-4 game, but has gone hitless just once since. He is hitting .375 with five RBI and five runs scored in eight at-bats.

Anthony Rizzo hits big home run in extra innings Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit his first home run of the season in the 12th inning Wednesday to break a 2-2 tie in his team's 16-inning loss to the Pirates.

Rizzo was 0 for 6 in his first two games heading into the 12th inning but came through with a clutch home run in the pressure situation. Unfortunately, the Pirates were able to tie things up in the bottom of the 12th before going on to win in the 16th inning. Rizzo, who finished the game 1 for 5, is looking to improve upon last season's .233/.323/.419 line.

Anthony Rizzo 'pleased' with 'progression at the plate'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Saturday's spring game against the Mets in Las Vegas turned out to be a productive afternoon for Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who parked two home runs in a 9-4 split-squad loss. It was the first homers of the spring for Rizzo, who is batting .417 (10 for 24) with an .833 slugging percentage in nine spring games.

"It's nice to connect with one and run around the bases, and feel what that feels like again," Rizzo said, per MLB.com. "I've just been pleased the last week or so with the progression at the plate and my approach. It's been a good progression and where I want to be at this time."

Anthony Rizzo looking for more consistency
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is looking for more consistency in his third season, according to ESPN.

Rizzo admitted last year was crazy, but he feels more comfortable now. After being traded twice already in his young career, Rizzo said it was nice to know where he was reporting this season. He stressed that he still has things to work on. "The biggest thing in going to the next level is consistency," Rizzo said. "I want to be consistent everyday."

Rizzo plans on making a slight alteration to his swing this spring. The goal is to keep his hands "quieter" at the plate. Rizzo hit .233/.323/.419 in 606 at-bats last year.

Anthony Rizzo 'not a finished product'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo has expressed confidence he can improve his batting average from last season. The Cubs are showing the same confidence in the 24-year-old first baseman and feel he hasn't reached his full potential yet, according to CSN Chicago.

"His batting average (.233) was bad and certainly the aesthetics of the end of his year weren’t ideal," Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer said. "But when a 23-year-old guy is playing great defense and has some power and patience, I think there’s a lot of potential there. He didn’t have the year he wanted, but I also think there’s some really nice silver linings that you can build on.

"He understands he’s not a finished product. He understands there’s things he can work on and he’s been really good at doing that. Hopefully, he’ll face some adversity from last year and bounce back really strong."
