  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Yankees transferred Rizzo (concussion) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Tuesday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    The transaction frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of right-hander Zach McAllister, whose contract was selected from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Rizzo had already been ruled out for the season as he continues to recover from concussion symptoms.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Won't return in 2023

    Manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Rizzo (concussion) will be shut down for the rest of the 2023 season, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    The veteran first baseman continues to make cognitive improvements but won't be rushed back to game action this year with the Yankees eight games back of the final wild-card spot in the American League. Rizzo faced live pitching in late August for the first time since he landed on the injured list Aug. 3 with post-concussion syndrome, and he should continue working through his rehab program even though he won't be back in the lineup in 2023. The 34-year-old is under contract for 2024 at $17 million and will have around six more months to prepare for the start of spring training.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Faces live pitching

    Rizzo (concussion) took live at-bats at the Yankees' spring training complex in Florida on Saturday, reports.

    Rizzo stepped in against live pitching for the first time since he went on the injured list Aug. 3 with post-concussion syndrome. The veteran first baseman had recently advanced to hitting drills, and he appears to be working toward a return to the Yankees before the end of the campaign. Manager Aaron Boone indicated that Rizzo came away from Saturday's session well and has said that the slugger's status is "week-to-week."

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Advances to batting practice

    Rizzo (concussion) took batting practice on the field both Wednesday and Thursday, Max Goodman of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Rizzo reported Wednesday that he was feeling good about his progress after being diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome in early August. The veteran slugger is working toward a return, though his status is still considered week-to-week. The Yankees have lost 10 of 11 contests to fall 10 games out of a wild-card spot, but the organization appears willing to be patient with Rizzo and not rush his return.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Showing improvement

    Rizzo (concussion) has been feeling better and showing improved reaction times, and he hit in a batting cage Friday, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Rizzo landed on the injured list Aug. 3 due to post-concussion syndrome, and an initial timeline for a return was uncertain. Though it's still not clear when the first baseman may return to the field, he's at least confident that he will be back this season. Rizzo said Thursday that recent tests have shown that he's improving, explaining that "all signs are pointing towards quicker, faster, sharper [reaction times]." The veteran added that he hopes to be playing within the next few weeks, stating, "it's about getting back as fast as possible -- obviously as healthy as possible -- but no, shutting down, for me, is not an option, and it hasn't been discussed."

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Set for more tests

    Rizzo (concussion) will undergo tests Tuesday in New York, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

    It was reported Friday that Rizzo was close to resuming baseball activities, and the exams he is set to take could reveal whether or not he is ready to do so. Rizzo, per the report, "feels like he is progressing," but it was also noted that he has only done "some light agility in the outfield and walked at an incline on the treadmill."

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Nearing baseball activities

    Rizzo (head) said Friday that he is aiming to ramp up his baseball activities within the next week, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports.

    Rizzo was placed on the injured list Aug. 3 due to post-concussion syndrome, stemming from a collision with Fernando Tatis back in late May. He has already played some catch and said he's been performing better in his concussion protocol tests. There's no exact timetable for Rizzo's return to the Yankees' active roster, but the veteran first baseman seems to be moving in an encouraging direction.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Placed on IL with concussion

    The Yankees placed Rizzo on the 10-day injured list Thursday with post-concussion syndrome, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    This concussion apparently stems all the way back to Rizzo's collision with Fernando Tatis in late May. He passed through concussion protocol at the time but has recently been experiencing residual fogginess, per Hoch. Jake Bauers is playing first base Thursday against the Astros and should continue to get a lot of run there while Rizzo is on the shelf. There is currently no timetable for his return.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Out again Thursday

    Rizzo is out of the lineup again Thursday versus the Astros.

    It's the second straight absence for Rizzo -- this time against a right-hander -- as he continues to struggle mightily at the dish. The veteran first baseman is slashing just .170/.235/.223 with one home run and 27 strikeouts in 24 games (102 plate appearances) since the beginning of July. Jake Bauers will play first and bat leadoff for the Yankees on Thursday in New York.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Sitting against lefty

    Rizzo is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays.

    Jake Bauers will play first base and bat fifth with ace left-hander Shane McClanahan set to start for Tampa Bay. The left-handed-hitting Rizzo has actually fared better versus lefties than righties this year, but he carries a disappointing .706 OPS across 421 overall plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Four hits, home run in win

    Rizzo went 4-for-4 with a double, a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's 8-5 victory over Kansas City.

    It was a huge day for Rizzo after he'd gone just 1-for-21 over his last five games. His home run, a solo shot off Jordan Lyles in the third inning, was his first since May 20, ending a 45-game drought. It's certainly the type of game the Yankees needed from the 33-year-old Rizzo, who came into the game batting just .154 with a .459 OPS in 38 games since the start of June. Overall, he's slashing .253/.338/.398 with 44 runs scored and 41 RBI through 390 plate appearances this season.
