Cubs place 1B Rizzo on DL with back tightness

CHICAGO (AP)—The Chicago Cubs are taking the safe route with Anthony Rizzo, placing the first baseman on the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday with lower back tightness.

Rizzo said he is feeling better and hopes to be ready when he is eligible to come off the DL on Monday. The move was made retroactive to Friday.

I just traded Patrick Corbin for Rizzo and Hamels, so today's sidebar is making me sad.

That trade is a steal for you. Even if you only got Rizzo, it's a steal.
