Anthony Rizzo Update: Cubs Prospect Sits With Wrist Soreness

The Chicago Cubs' top prospect, 1B Anthony Rizzo left his most recent Triple-A game in the sixth inning with wrist soreness. The hot-hitting first base prospect is now day-to-day, but his sudden absence from the game had Cubs fans on Twitter speculating that the Cubs front office had called up the 22-year-old.

On Monday, GM Jed Hoyer put those speculations to rest:

The Chicago Cubs are currently mired in a 12-game losing streak and have fallen to a 15-23 record, good for worst in the MLB, tied only with the Minnesota Twin who are also at 15-23.
