Rizzo, who turned 33 on Monday, stretched on the field and did some throwing. He was set to hit in the cage as well. It was the second time the lower back went out on Rizzo this season. He missed four games as well in early July with what he said were back spasms that he has dealt with over the last few years of his career. At the time, Rizzo said that it was usually just an annual issue, but he did not indicate he was more concerned because it had popped up twice in a month.


Rizzo had been on a hot streak. He homered in four straight games July 29-Aug. 2, but went 0-for-4 in Wednesday’s loss to the Mariners. Overall, the 33-year-old is hitting .227/.347/.511 with an .858 OPS. He’s crushed 27 homers and driven in 66 RBI.

They sure miss him, it lengthens the lineup so much, and it sounds like they'll call Andujar up to take Carpenters spot, I hope they let him play...

Time for Stanton to get his expensive fat a----s and return.


I guess now we will continue to have Hicks Prodigious bat in the lineup. I hope not.

    At this point why not just put him on the IL retro to the injury and give the back some more rest ?

It is? Okay doctor. Do you have any clue what Achilles tendenitis is and how long it may take to be fully healed? The Yankees  medical staff makes those decisions not someone on a baseball forum.

thought i had read somewhere that they were being extra cautious and not rushing him back taking advantage of the big lead and they he could play if the games meant something. nonetheless with the injury to carp, there's a little more urgency to provide protection for judge and with the shortening of the lineup. we'll see ...

Yep, wildest comments seem to come  people who have never played competitive sports at a high level. The players shouldn't get hurt comments or they could do better if they only tried harder.
