Rizzo exits with foot bruise; X-rays negative

Maddon says first baseman doesn't expect miss time

September 5th, 2018

MILWAUKEE -- Cubs first baseman was hit by a pitch on his left foot in the first inning, but he had to leave Tuesday night's 11-1 loss to the Brewers after he sustained a contusion when he fouled a pitch off his other foot in the third.

X-rays of Rizzo's right foot were negative.

"He took one off the foot on a foul ball," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "He was starting to get tight and definitely wanted to get him off his foot. He said he's good [for Wednesday]."

In the third, Rizzo finished the at-bat and grounded out to first baseman . Rizzo was then lifted after the sixth in a double switch.
