    Anthony Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a 6-1 win over the Guardians in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.Rizzo got the New York Yankees on the board with a fourth-inning blast. The first baseman has hit safely in three of the last four games after enduring a brutal 0-for-18 skid near the end of June. He's slashing .225/.338/.513 with 22 homers, 52 RBI, 47 runs scored, six stolen bases and 10 doubles through 76 contests, and he's received a couple of breathers lately to reset as he looks to get back in a rhythm at the plate.

    Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Gets Wednesday off

    Anthony Rizzo is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.Rizzo exited late in Monday's win over Oakland after he was hit in the right elbow by a pitch, but he was able to start at first base in Tuesday's 2-1 victory, finishing 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. The New York Yankees haven't indicated that Rizzo's elbow is still bothering him, so his absence Wednesday looks to be the result of the two teams playing a day game after a night game. DJ LeMahieu will cover first base in Rizzo's stead.

    Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Good to go Tuesday

    Anthony Rizzo (elbow) will start at first base and bat third in Tuesday's game against the Athletics, Lindsey Adler of The Athletic reports.Rizzo looked to be in considerable pain after he took a 95 mile-per-hour fastball off his right elbow in Monday's 9-5 win, prompting the New York Yankees to pull him from the contest an inning later. His early exit looks to have been mostly precautionary, as Rizzo wasn't diagnosed with any structural damage to the elbow and is back in the lineup just one day later. Rizzo's ability to quickly bounce back from the injury scare is a welcome sight for fantasy managers, whom he rewarded with his 20th home run of the season Monday prior to his departure.
