  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Remains out Monday

    Rizzo (back) isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners.

    Rizzo is set to miss his fourth consecutive contest due to lower-back tightness. He'll continue to be considered day-to-day until more information on his status becomes known. DJ LeMahieu draws another start at first base in Rizzo's absence.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Not starting Sunday, as expected

    Rizzo (back) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

    DJ LeMahieu will pick up another start at first base while Rizzo takes a seat for the third consecutive game as he continues to contend with lower-back tightness. Per Erik Boland of Newsday, manager Aaron Boone said Rizzo is "better" Sunday, but the Yankees are likely to stay away from the 32-year-old as a pinch-hitting option off the bench with the hope he's ready to rejoin the lineup for Monday's series opener in Seattle.

    Rizzo did not rule out taking the field Sunday, but when asked if he would play, he responded, "realistically probably not." Rizzo's status will be known for sure when the Yankees release their starting lineup for Sunday's contest.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Remains out

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Dealing with back tightness

    Rizzo, who was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Cardinals, is dealing with lower-back tightness, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    He missed four games due to lower-back stiffness in early July, as Rivera notes. For now it seems like Rizzo is day-to-day with the issue, and the Yankees have enough depth to give him a few days to get right if necessary. Aaron Hicks was added to Friday's lineup after Rizzo was scratched.

    Rizzo first scored in the fourth inning on a Josh Donaldson double. He then hit a solo shot in the sixth inning, his 27th home run of the year. Rizzo is tied with Pete Alonso for the fifth most home runs in baseball. The Yankees' first baseman extended his hit streak to four games after Tuesday's performance, bringing his batting average up from .225 to .230 during that span.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Slugs 25th homer

    Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a walk in a loss to the Royals on Sunday.

    Rizzo's three-run blast in the seventh inning looked to be a game-changer, as it gave New York its first lead of the contest. However, the Royals bounced back for four runs over the final two frames to claim the victory. Rizzo's long ball was his third over his past five games after he had failed to go deep across his previous 15 contests. The veteran is up to 25 homers on the season, the first time he has reached that mark since he hit 27 homers with the Cubs in 2019.

    Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Tuesday in a loss to the Mets.

    Rizzo went 2-for-3 with a double and three runs Saturday in the Yankees' 14-1 win over the Red Sox. He was also hit by a pitch.

    Rizzo has failed to produce a home run in his last nine games, but he's gotten on base at a .378 clip over that stretch to ensure the prolific Yankees offense keeps humming.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Plates two runs in return to lineup

    Rizzo went 2-for-5 with two doubles, a run, two RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Red Sox.

    Rizzo missed four games due to lower-back stiffness, but he was productive in his return to action Saturday. The veteran knocked in a run with a double in each of the sixth and 10th innings, and he felt spry enough to try to steal third after the latter two-bagger (though he was thrown out). Rizzo had gone just 4-for-34 at the plate over his previous 11 games prior to the injury absence, but he had homered three times in his past four contests.
