Rizzo went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging first baseman plated Dexter Fowler with a run-scoring single in the first, his 89th RBI of the season. Rizzo now has hit safely in seven of his last eight games and has thrived in August overall, but has only one homer during the month. However, he's enjoyed a stellar season at the plate overall, slashing .300/.397/.558 with a whopping 66 extra-base hits (37 doubles, four triples, 25 round-trippers) in 464 at-bats.

Rizzo is in the lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo had a rare day off Wednesday, so it's no surprise to see him return to the lineup Friday evening. Rizzo has continued his phenomenal performance at the plate recently and is hitting .362/.383/.500 over his last 14 games. He'll hit third against Bud Norris and the Dodgers.

Rizzo is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

He has started every game since July 30, and the Cubs will take advantage of their unmatched depth to give him a day off while still deploying a pretty intimidating lineup Wednesday. Kris Bryant will man first base and hit second while Ben Zobrist steps into Rizzo's typical spot in the three hole.

Rizzo went 4-for-5 and scored a run in Monday's win over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo has just one home run in 20 games in August, but he has been making opposing pitchers pay in other ways. He owns a solid 9:10 BB:K and mashed his eighth double of the month in Monday's win. His batting line for August sits at a cool .383/.451/.568, proving he can be plenty productive even when he isn't depositing the ball into the bleachers.

Rizzo finished 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo spread out his production, singling in runs in the first and sixth innings before launching a solo home run to right in the eighth inning that gave the Cubs a glimmer of hope. The homer was Rizzo's first in 22 games, but he still sports what would be a career best .972 OPS and he sits third in the National League with 85 RBI.

Rizzo went 2-for-5 and drove home the game-winning run with a bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning of a victory over the Cardinals on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Though Rizzo hasn't hit a home run since he hit two of them on July 20, he's still been hitting and driving in runs, as he's slashing .278/.376/.458 with 12 runs and 11 RBI in 19 games. Meanwhile, the Cubs have won their last 10. We could be looking at the MVP.

Rizzo went 3-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in a 3-for-3 game in Monday's win over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo had been relatively cold, as his last multi-hit game came July 20 against the Mets. He fell a home run short of the cycle as he managed a double and a triple, and the addition of a walk brought his OBP up to .396, which would be a career high. He has been the total package this year, with a 53:73 BB:K showing he has plenty of discipline to go with his obvious power.

Rizzo is not in Saturday's lineup as the Cubs face Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

It seems as though Rizzo will be getting a rare day off during Saturday's matinee against Wade Miley and the Mariners. The slugging first baseman hasn't missed a game since June 24 when he was battling back stiffness, but will be replaced in the field by Willson Contreras, while Ben Zobrist moves into the third spot in the order.

Rizzo went 1-for-5 with a bases-clearing double and a run in Friday's 12-1 victory over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging first baseman helped to break the game wide open with his sixth-inning, bases-loaded two-bagger, plating Jon Lester, Chris Coghlan and Kris Bryant. Rizzo came up with the bases jammed again in the seventh, and his double play groundout allowed Matt Szczur to score as well on a fielder's choice. The 26-year-old has enjoyed a solid July, raising his average 18 points since the first game of the month.

Rizzo hit his 23rd and 24th home runs of the season Wednesday off Bartolo Colon in the Cubs win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Rizzo easily shook off Tuesday's golden sombrero performance, coming back with a fury against the Mets. Overall, Rizzo has been quite hot of late, hitting .345/.436/.726 in his last 30 games. Both of Wednesday's homers travelled more than 435 feet, a testament to his incredible power. He now has 71 RBI on the season, tied for most in the NL with Nolan Arenado. Rizzo continues to prove he's one of the league's premier hitters.
