Anthony Rizzo has been on the shelf since May 25, but after getting an optimistic update on Monday, he's brought Cubs fans some great news on Tuesday.

Cubs News: Anthony Rizzo Injury Update

Rizzo fully expects to be in action for Tuesday's home game against the San Diego Padres, saying that his back is feeling "a lot better."

The Cubs rolled to a 5-1 record in his absence, but his return will certainly be welcome on Tuesday as they look to make it two in a row against the Padres.

Last night's win elevated the Cubs to first place in the NL Central, but they have no room for error with the St. Louis Cardinals sitting 0.5 games back and the Milwaukee Brewers sitting 1.5 games back.

Bouncing back from a down year in 2020, Rizzo is slashing .258/.366/.434 with 5 home runs and 19 RBI across 46 games in 2021. FanDuel Sportsbook still has the Cubs ranked third in the NL Central with +500 odds to win the division.
