Player Outlook
Given that he missed the final two months of the 2023 season due to post-concussion syndrome, Anthony Rizzo's draft-day cost is going to vary widely from league to league in 2024. The concussion happened during an awkward collision with Fernando Tatis in May -- three months before Rizzo was actually placed on the IL -- and he later acknowledged that he was having trouble seeing the ball for much of the summer. That shows in his game logs, as he slashed just .170/.271/.224 with one home run in 188 plate appearances between the beginning of June and the end of July. He suffered through a five-strikeout game July 30 at Baltimore, a few days before mercifully being shut down. While it was an ugly ordeal, durability is usually one of Rizzo's best skills and he can hopefully put last year in the rearview with a reinvigorating kind of opportunity to feast in the heart of the Yankees' beefed-up batting order. He won't be a consensus top-150 pick again but could certainly return that kind of value.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Drives home only runs in victory

    Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a home run and two total RBI in Friday's 2-0 win over Tampa Bay. Rizzo accounted for both runs in the contest, knocking an RBI single in the fourth inning and providing some insurance with a solo homer in the ninth. The veteran first baseman has reached base safely in all but one of his eight games so far in May, slashing .296/.406/.519 with two homers and seven RBI over that stretch. With seven long balls and 22 RBI through 39 games on the campaign, Rizzo is already more than halfway to the totals he posted over 99 contests last season.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Receiving Sunday off

    Rizzo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

Oswaldo Cabrera is stepping in at first base while Jon Berti starts at the hot corner.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Remains red-hot Sunday

    Rizzo went 4-for-4 with a two-run home run, two doubles, a walk and three runs scored in Sunday's 15-5 win over the Brewers. Rizzo was once again spectacular Sunday, ripping a double in his first at-bat, before later adding another double, a single and a two-run homer later in the contest. The long ball was his fifth of the season, and he has now gone deep in back-to-back games and four times in his last six contests. Rizzo is batting .277 with five home runs, 15 RBI and 15 runs scored over 112 at-bats in 29 games in 2024.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Continues power surge Saturday

    Rizzo went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run and three total runs scored in Saturday's 15-3 rout against Milwaukee. Rizzo hit one of four long balls for the Yankees in the contest, contributing a two-run shot to right field in the sixth inning. After beginning the season with just one home run over his first 23 games, Rizzo's power stroke has resurfaced of late, as he's belted three homers over his past five contests. The veteran first baseman is hitting .350 with five RBI and five runs over that stretch.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Goes yard again Wednesday

    Rizzo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Yankees. The 34-year-old first baseman appears to be heating up. Rizzo has gone yard in back-to-back games after managing only one homer in his first 23 contests this season. His .242/.314/.358 slash line and 11 RBI remain below expectations, but after a tough, concussion-marred 2023 campaign, Rizzo's beginning to look more like the player who slugged 32 homers in 2022.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Clubs second homer

    Rizzo went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the A's. Paul Blackburn left a 92.4 mph fastball up in the zone in the first inning, and Rizzo clubbed it over the fence in right-center field. The veteran first baseman snapped a 14-game homer drought with the blast, and he's still looking for his first sustained hot streak of 2024. Over 24 contests, Rizzo is slashing .231/.307/.319 with two doubles, two homers and 10 RBI.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Clubs first homer

    Rizzo went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer in New York's win over the Blue Jays on Saturday. Rizzo finally joined the party in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run shot off Mitch White to score Aaron Judge and increase New York's lead to six runs. It was the first baseman's first home run of the season and he's now hit safely in three straight games after starting the month 0-for-7.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Returns to lineup Monday

    Rizzo (lat) will start at designated hitter and bat cleanup for the Yankees in Monday's game against the Mets, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. Rizzo had to be scratched from the lineup Friday due to some lat tightness, but he's feeling well enough to hit Monday and should be fine to play first base in Thursday's opener in Houston. The 34-year-old has looked sharp at the dish this spring, sporting a 1.189 OPS with two home runs.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Should be ready for Opening Day

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Sunday he expects Rizzo (lat) to be available for Thursday's Opening Day matchup with the Astros, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports. The veteran first baseman recently expressed confidence that he'd be available for the season opener, and Boone is now reinforcing that idea. Rizzo was scratched from Friday's spring lineup due to lat tightness, and it's not surprising the Yankees are exercising caution in the lead-up to Opening Day.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Says he'll be ready Opening Day

    Rizzo (lat) said Friday that he's "fully confident" he'll be ready for Opening Day, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Rizzo was a late scratch from Friday's lineup with some lat tightness, which is something he said he deals with from time to time. However, the scratch was made out of an abundance of caution and he's expected to be fine when the games begin to count. Fantasy managers who draft this weekend shouldn't have trepidation about rostering Rizzo.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Lat issue considered minor

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said on the YES Network broadcast Friday that Rizzo "didn't seem too concerned" about his lat tightness, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports. The veteran first baseman was a late scratch from Friday's lineup due to the injury. Boone added that Rizzo said it's an issue which pops up on him occasionally, so he just wanted to be cautious in asking out of the lineup. It would appear to be a day-to-day situation that shouldn't affect his Opening Day availability.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Scratched Friday with tight lat

    Rizzo was a late scratch from the Yankees' Grapefruit League lineup Friday due to a tight lat, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports. The severity of the injury hasn't yet been made public, but the Yankees should have additional information on Rizzo's status after the game. The veteran first baseman has had a fantastic spring, putting up a 1.189 OPS with two home runs.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Healthy and thriving this spring

    Rizzo went 2-for-2 with a walk, two home runs and five RBI in Friday's Grapefruit League win over Toronto. Rizzo ended last season on the 60-day IL due to a concussion, but Yankees manager Aaron Boone said in early December that the veteran first baseman was expected to be fine for spring training. That has proven to be the case, as Rizzo has played in four Grapefruit League contests so far and is slashing .429/.600/1.429 with the pair of homers and six RBI over 10 plate appearances. Rizzo will be looking to bounce back in 2024 after playing in just 99 contests last year and posting a .706 OPS, his lowest mark since his 49-game stint as a rookie with the Padres in 2011.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Will be 100 percent for spring

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Rizzo (concussion) was probably "game ready" by the end of the regular season and is expected to be fine for spring training, Brendan Kuty of The Athletic reports. This tracks with what Rizzo told reporters in late September. The veteran first baseman wound up being limited to just 99 games during the 2023 season and didn't play after early August due to a concussion, which he initially suffered back in late May. It sounds like Rizzo has put the issue in the rearview mirror, though, and will look to bounce back in 2024.

  • Yankees' Anthony Rizzo: Expects normal offseason

    Rizzo (concussion) said Monday that he is feeling significantly better and expects to have a normal offseason, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. Rizzo's 2023 season officially ended Sept. 12 when he was moved to the 60-day IL. He had been diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome in early August and has shown gradual improvement since then, though it wasn't enough for him to return during the current campaign. Nonetheless, Rizzo said Monday that he is feeling "a lot clearer and pretty strong," adding that he's continued to stay active during his time on the injured list. The veteran first baseman indicated that he may start his offseason training program earlier than usual due to his shortened campaign and stated that he expects to be a full-go for spring training next year.

  • 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 MLB.com 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, MLB.com 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."
