Anthony Rizzo (Ankle) Will Wear Walking Boot, Miss Time
This is a huge blow for Chicago's lineup
On Sunday, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo suffered a sprained ankle while fielding a ball. As a result, he will wear a walking boot and miss an undetermined amount of time.

The Cubs, who are fighting for an NL Wild Card spot, will now be without Rizzo, Javier Baez (thumb), Craig Kimbrel (elbow) and Addison Russell (concussion), all of whom don’t have a timetable to return.
It remains to be seen if they can hold onto one of the two spots without Rizzo, who is one of their best hitters and leaders on the field.
