Rizzo is hitting .353 with 14 home runs, has a .416 OBP in 150 at-bats and is getting hot again, hitting .350 in his last 10 games with seven home runs, 14 RBI, four extra-base hits and a K-BB ratio of 6-to-4.
There is no doubt Rizzo will be joining the Cubs in the very near future. Their upcoming schedule forces the front office to consider the options.
Should they call up Anthony Rizzo now with the Padres and Red Sox looming, or ride out Alfonso Soriano's little burst of life until a more fluid situation presents itself?
While I'd love to see Rizzo in Chicago tomorrow, you know the Red Sox and Padres have a detailed dossier on Rizzo. His two former organizations know what he is capable of, and I'm sure they would love to see him do well in the majors.
