(7/23/14) A tremendous power display continued Tuesday night for Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who snagged the National League lead in home runs by adding two to his total.
Rizzo, who has 25 on the season, slugged solo blasts in the third and seventh innings. He has five home runs and six RBI in the last four games. He has also raised his batting average from .272 to .283 with 15 hits in his last 40 at-bats.

(7/19/14) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo put on a power display Friday, though it wasn't enough to lift his team in a 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Rizzo had two hits in the loss, and both left the yard. He opened the scoring with a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and then added a solo homer in the sixth, as he finished the game 2 for 4 with three RBI and two runs scored.
Rizzo is now hitting .278/.382/.516 with an NL-leading 22 home runs in 94 games.

(7/10/14) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won Major League Baseball's final vote, earning a spot on the 2014 All-Star team.
Rizzo was more than a deserving candidate for the spot. He's hitting .280/.387/.512 over 328 at-bats. Rizzo's 20 home runs trails only Giancarlo Stanton in the National League. He's been one of the few offensive bright spots for the Cubs this season. Rizzo will be a reserve to open the game.

|Anthony Rizzo has three hits, homer in loss |

(7/9/14) Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo put together a three-hit game Tuesday, though it came in a 6-5 loss to the Reds.
Rizzo went 3 for 5, with a double and a solo home run in the game. He finished with one RBI and one run scored in the loss.
Rizzo is hitting .277/.383/.502 with 19 home runs, which ranks second in the National League.
|After the numbers he put up in half a season as a rookie in 2012, most Fantasy owners would consider Anthony Rizzo's sophomore campaign a disappointment. After all, his batting average dropped by more than 50 points to an uninspiring .233, and he hit only eight more home runs despite getting 269 more at-bats. Those Fantasy owners may be surprised to learn, though, that Rizzo still ranked 11th among first basemen in Head-to-Head leagues last year, ahead of Allen Craig, Kendrys Morales and Mike Napoli, among others. Granted, he didn't rank as high in Rotisserie, where his 40 doubles didn't count for anything in and of themselves, and sure, playing 160 games gave his counting stats a boost. But the bottom line is Rizzo is too productive for you to ignore in Fantasy just because you perceive that he burned you last year. Let's not forget the Cubs did some tinkering with his swing early in the year that resulted in more home runs initially but perhaps contributed to his struggles later on. Instead of having to recapture his stroke on the fly, he'll have had an entire offseason to prepare and could be poised for a big step forward at age 24. By last year's numbers alone, Rizzo is still worthy of a middle-round pick, and his pedigree gives him the potential for far more.
