Cubs Roster 2012: Anthony Rizzo To Remain In Minor Leagues For Interleague Games

The newest word from the Chicago Cubs is the old word: Top prospect 1B Anthony Rizzo will remain in the minor leagues. According to Cubs manager Dale Sveum, the Cubs will not summon Rizzo to play designated hitter in the upcoming interleague matchups:

Rizzo has been dominating the Triple-A Pacific Coast League, hitting an overwhelming .474 weighted on-base average (wOBA) with 17 home runs. Meanwhile, the Cubs offense has struggled to score runs in the 2012 MLB season and has hit a .301 wOBA collectively as a team -- good for fifth worst in the MLB.
